I replaced my trusty KDX200 with the Beta 2017 300RR 3 months ago and the difference is night and day! These bikes are amazing, you will not be disappointed. My confidence with the bike and with it my ability has grown. I shit you not, you will find yourself at the top of a particularly nasty hill climb wondering why it was so easy when you used to struggle on the KDX. Best off road bike purchase I've made.
