Beta2Stroke 2021 Beta 200rr review

Recommended Posts

In my experience Betas compliment a rider that stands over the bars.  My 250RR doesn’t compare to my YZ250FX when in the sitting position.

Well that's not good news for me lol. If it doesn't work out a new YZ250x  or 250xc will soon be making its way home with me.

Well no problem getting rid of your 200. There would be a line around here. They’re in demand.

Don that’s just been my experience, others may disagree.  All my Yamahas have just worked better in the seated position than the Beta.  That said, the 250RR is the most fun I’ve had on a bike to this day.  If the 250x got an e start that would definitely be my next bike.  I’ll be looking at the Huskies in addition to Beta when it’s time to get another.

Not where I'm at. They are no longer the bike to own. The White KTM's are the hot bike to own right now. I will be lucky to sell it for a ok price.

I love my Husky FE250 it's a great overall bike. I like it better than the KTM 250xcf I had. If they made TX250 I would be looking hard at that. The e-start is nice but not a deal breaker either.

Says the bloke with the dog in his avatar. For the bloke with the pussy in his avatar, he has to have an E-leg.

Go figure 😂

Sorry, with all the self control I could possibly posses, I couldn't possibly resist that.

Same with my experience going directly from the 300rr to YZ250FX.  

The 300rr was pretty poor, revalve helped,  but I had to be diligent with standing attack position.  

YZ250FX it just works sitting or standing.

That's probably why Beta gives you a brick to sit on. The seat is never supposed to be used.

I am glad you said this I was starting to wonder. My 250 re works fine but I do stand, even when I should probably be sitting.

The FX doesn’t discriminate 🙂  that bike worked great in whatever position you were in.

I basically only stand on my 250RR unless I'm getting tired and don't have a choice.  When fresh, there is very few instances where i choose to sit.

The seat on the ‘18 390 RE that I rode this weekend definitely felt brick like.
