Overall, a much improved machine. They look forward to putting head to head against the competition and continuing to test further. https://www.dirtrider.com/2018-beta-300-rr-first-ride-review#page-8 Cons; Twitchy at speed; not something we normally hear, setup? Tires; no surprise on the West Coast Stiff Suspension; that's a new one too, they know it takes time to break in and they prefer this over soft Front end tuck on higher speed flat corners; it has always been there, setup? Pros; Light feeling improved handling; the changes paying off Can take flat landings without bottoming; finally! Great shifting; the changes paying off Shock less bouncy; who knows what they did? good news More meat/grunt power, linear power; the changes paying off oil injection; more options on fueling These guys seem to have done a good job testing the bike for the limited time they've had it so far. Kinda surprising. They are trying to love it, but are still at like right now. I hope they can go the right direction on setup and bring out the best in the bike.
