    True, but not entirely. Beta continues to ship bikes in to the States, but the 300REs are sold out for several months. We have a 250RE that's unspoken for.

    Typically BYOB doesn't open up until all of the dealer orders have been filled.

    They haven't even started the 2020 BYOB program for the race editions yet. The RR BYOB has been available. The stock model isn't sold out. I just saw some on cycle trader earlier this week.

    Had a hard time logging on to the forum (would accept log-in but then kick me out as soon as it got one step in) so I had to go back to the notification email and link in that way.

    In any case, Beta will continue to produce the REs throughout the year, but currently demand is outstripping supply. We happen to have a 250RE on hand but subsequent orders arrive in month-by-month shipments.

    The KTMs were paint shakers, and the vibration reduction was amazing. The Beta is better than it was, but not perfect. The TM on the other hand is as smooth as glass.

    Too bad Beta dropped the excellent priced 300 upgrade kit. I asked Tim P. about it and he said nobody bought it. Heck, they charge more for a cylinder now than they did for the cylinder, piston, head and ECU before.

    Older Tm and Ktms vibe like crazy, I never found Beta or Gasgas bad for vibes on 300s.

    I think my 300rr is butter smooth now, find it very 4 strokeish. I say FI also makes the bike feel smoother to enhance the feel.
    When comparing I do find the FI does lack torque and proved this with a 20 300rr vs a 20 300 husky on hill climbs.
