    1st day riding my bone stock '18 Beta 300rr. Stock jetting, stock everything.

    Vibration was not an issue tractoring through wet Oregon singletrack.

    BTW, the Flexxbars I already had from my KTM 300xc which vibrated a good fair amount. I ended up taking them off the Beta and selling them as they were unnecessary on this bike!

    [FONT="]Last bike was a 2019 300xcw tpi. The tpi took away the hit the I loved and am trying to avoid buying another tpi from any mfr. Which brings me here. I知 looking at a 200/250/300rr. But, I have some concerns. The biggest? Vibrations![/FONT]

    [FONT="]You all know the KTM 2t are smoother. Don稚 lie. I want to know if there is a consensus on which of those 3 bikes vibes the least. [/FONT]

    [FONT="]Second concern...I way 175lb and can ride pretty fast but I知 47 and my brain is telling me I should slow down a little. This will also be an east TN mountain bike. I don稚 love the suspension on KTMs. Always felt harsh, esp. on rocks and roots. My 2006 GasGas was super plush...almost too plush. How does the Beta compare to the KTM 2t in terms of 菟lushness?[/FONT]

    [FONT="]Lastly, I think the Betas are the best looking bikes out there...but I壇 be a fool to buy a bike because it痴 beautiful. So, please offer some honest guidance. Thank you all![/FONT]
    It appears you sold your 2019 but if by chance you have not installing the Red PV spring and the latest KTM flash worked very well at bring the hit back. Actually latest flash, Red PV spring and 1.5 turns out.

    I did sell it. Ordered a Beta which I hope to have by December/January. If I don稚 fall madly in love with it then I guess I知 going back to tpi.
