Beta Pronunciation

What would be the correct way to pronounce Beta? Heard a few different ways but tried searching to find the correct one and couldn't come up with anything.

My friends mom from Italy told me it's the same as latin/ spanish pronunciation .. sort of like E in elephant and the a in ahh. Baytah.. maybe not ay so much more like the e in elephant..  I've heard it a bunch of ways too but I got corrected by her in how to say it...

      Hi,  I posted in the which bike should I buy section, but I was hoping for some feedback from beta riders specifically.   The short story is,  I'm looking at a new 17' 300rr race and I have to make a decision fairly quickly.   I currently ride a 13 300 xc and I really love the bike, even though it's not quite ideal for the majority of the riding I do ( lots of clutch slipping in first with this bike ).  However, when trails open up, the XC is amazing, on the pipe and the back tire.  It's way too fast for my skill, it's going to kill me and I love it.  I read and hear all about how the Beta is so tractable, power delivery is smooth, gobs of torque, but if the trail opens up ( with some power valve adjustments ), can it have the big hit and the excitement I get with the XC ?

      I currently own and ride a 13 300xc.  I love the this bike, even if it's not the best bike for the majority of the riding I do.  I ride a lot of very tight, very technical, rocky, rooty, trials type stuff as I live very close to probably hundreds of kilometers for trials trails.  With that said, I also race some hare scramble and enduro races and am looking to do more this year.   On my ktm, when I'm in first because the terrain warrants it,  the clutch is almost never fully out.  I run a fan because I slip the clutch so much and it causes a lot of heat, so the fan runs almost constantly and yes, I change the oil almost every ride as a result. I also put a bigger sprocket on the back.   I have the chance to get a pretty good deal on a new old stock 17 300rr race, but I've never ridden one and have almost no chance that I will be able to without buying this one.  With said,  I've read as much as I can about them and they seem like a great bike for what I want to do, but I'm worried about the difference in motor and grearing.  My KTM with the xc gearing and the 300 red spring, fmf fatty etc.. is a handful for my skill level, but I love riding it.  Will I love the Beta?  Would I love an xc-w?  Anyone with experience, I would really appretiate you input!
