Beta Motorcycle logo

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 1940’s. The Beta name is a combination of the two men who were running the company at the time.

Beta is well known for Off-Road, Dual Sport and Trials bikes. They are imported into the US by Beta USA.

In the off-road category, the RR line includes both two-stroke and four-stroke models. They are very capable bikes that include a Race Edition line that comes standard with many upgrades that serious racers would choose.

The Beta off-road line also includes the innovative Cross X Trainer model that is a slight smaller, lighter two stroke with a very mellow power delivery. This makes the bike ideal for technical riding or riders with less experience.

The Beta Trials line is extensive with several Minitrial models for kids all the way up to the EVO two-stroke and four-stroke models capable of competing at the highest level.
