Beta is a relatively small motorcycle brand from Italy that has a rich history. The company started in the bicycle market in 1904 and started producing motorcycles at the end of the 1940s. The Beta name is a combination of the two men who were running the company at the time. In recent years, Beta has gained popularity in the US and has a relatively strong team of riders.
