    I assume at some point we can BYOB a race edition. Right now it doesn't offer that option on the website. I'm pretty excited about the 250.

    I think the REs get added to the BYOB program in December. The first couple shipments of 300 REs are sold out.

    My son rode the Beta demo in VA a few weeks ago. Keep in mind he loves the YZ 250. He said the Beta 250 was amazing, power everywhere. Surprisingly he raved about the 500. Lots of power and felt light and nimble. He said it would be a hard choice between the two. Didn't like the 125, thought the 200 was weak. The 300 he said vibrated so bad he wouldn't want to ride one. And the 390 and 430 he once again thought the power was too soft compared to a Husky 350.

    Take it for what it's worth. Just like a KTM demo, those bikes aren't really dialed in.

    I am somewhat surprised about the vibration complaint with the counterbalanced 2020 Beta 300 2-stroke. I haven't ridden one yet however from what I have read they are noticeably smoother than previous Beta 300's although perhaps not quite as smooth as the newer KTM/Husky 300's.

    Just picked up a 300 race ed last weekend. Got in a nice ride on Sat. and thought it was pretty darn smooth. KYB is very good new with no adjustments. Compared to the AER on my 2017 350xc-f its exceptional. Did quite a few log crossings and the KYB feels nice and planted and didn't deflect at all. AER tried to kill me several times as usual. Engine is quite nice as well. Nice even power delivery and pulls from nearly stopped in 2nd gear.

    Weird the 300 had a lot of vibration? to him? I've had a bunch of YZ's and YZ250X's and they were like paint shakers!

    Super stoked with my new 2020 Xtrainer. First ride today. Coming off 2014 300 xcw. First big thing I notice is the suspension, feels great for my weight and ride style. We have mostly “eastern style” single track and some very technical. Smooth power, light and agile. For me it’s fantastic..Attachment 33616

    After 42 years on KTM's I jumping ship with a 390 RR-S. I haven't read a single bad review on them. I'm hoping for the best !!

    The ATK 406 was the last big 2 stroke I owned. You could have mixed a 5 gallon bucket of deck stain on it.

    I'm seeking a change. While I've always loved the 300s I think its time for something a little less. I've been reading about Beta or Sherco 250s. My 350 has an incredible engine, I'm sure the Sherco 300SEF is nice. Everyone who rides one really seems to like it. But I want a 2 stroke regardless. I have less input on the Sherco 250, so I am leaning heavily towards the Beta 250 Race. What I really like is the concept of ordering a bike with everything I want on it.
