    I don't really have any brand loyalty (but I do always seem to end up back on a KTM) and would love to try a Beta. But unless they change to KYB, Showa or WP suspension components I'll pass.

    You might want to consider the 2020 Beta 300RE 2-stroke which is counterbalanced and equipped with KYB forks.

    I would probably just adapt a pair of yz250 forks to the Beta chassis; I would still have to deal with the Sacks shock but to be fair I don't hear many complaints about the shock. And I have liked the 300 and 480 that I have ridden.

    Agreed... the rear sach shock is pretty good.. good as as any other production shock IMO..

    The forks.. not so much... Installing the KYBs on the BETA make is a much better ride

    As ChasM mentioned, the Beta race edition bikes come with the KYB forks for 2020. No need to adapt Yamaha forks, just gas up and ride.

    I have bought a 2020 250rr( non race) & have been testing with Kevin@ Stillwell suspension. We have come up with some good setting for the stock stuff. Now I will outfit it with a set of lucky inserts & a national shock. The 250 motor is so good has excellent bottom end & the jetting with the oil injection is perfect! I weighed the bike with flex bars, hand guards, EXP skid plate & full of fuel it is 250 lbs right in line with my 300 TPI.
    I bought one to test & see if I liked it & I will tell you it has been a while since I have been on a 250 & I flat out love this bike.

    That's good to know, glad you are liking the bike! I was excited to see Beta's finally having an AZ demo day so I'll be able to get a leg over a 2020 250. Just gotta wait til February

    They are having a demo day in April here in Washington. Think I'll try to attend as I'd like to see how their 250 RR feels. Might be time to pass on current ride to sons and get a new bike and TPI 250's still are not appealing to me as I just want simplicity as much as possible.
