    but i think that's what Greg was saying ... that Beta may have shot for the 300 to be smoother at low RPM.

    My buddy in Finland has had one now for 6 months and loves it. It’s his primary bike for racing enduros, his 300rr sits idle now. Good luck with it, excited to see your pics of all the mods

    Iíve been considering a new dirt mount. Beta is on the short list, though the 250/300 rr are more the target. Itís great that there are more options for 2 strokes.

    great to hear he loves it, i think every single review i've read has been positive. i still love the 250 to death but the downsized frame and motor should be crazy fun around New England.

    Re: 2019 Beta 200RR

    i've read the bike has great torque for a 'small bore' but it's interesting that Beta supplies the US with a 15T countershaft sprocket (49T rear) and the EU with a 14T ... then i read they swapped the CS on all the US demo bikes with a 13T to help the motor really shine in singletrack. owers here have been comparing the 15T to 14T but seem to really like the 15/49 combo. odd, but encouraging that the small motor can pull that gearing so well.

    i will be running 13/49 right outta the gates, think it will better suit our regular terrain (run 13/50 on the 250) ... will also remove the oil injection system, no need for the extra swizz.

    Re: 2019 Beta 200RR

    Interesting. I would have figured those gears were way too long(?) for a 200. Does it have a really narrow ratio gearbox?

    Didn't you just finish getting your 250 squared away? You're going to back to square one. But I can deff see the 200's being a popular NE woods bike.

    It may just have really short primary gearing...

    Re: 2019 Beta 200RR

    I'm pretty sure I am running 14/49 right now on the KTM 200 XC. (This is a 200 XC-W with the 150 XC 1st and 6th cogs swapped in.) I like it a lot, although have trouble getting the front end to lift. I suck at wheelies and could use some (more) help from the gearing here.. or moar wheelie practice.

    I bought it from a NETRA fast/fast-ish guy who had it geared higher. I flamed out a lot in the rock gardens and such before re-gearing.

    It does tap out quickly if trying to connect on roads. 50-55 is asking a lot.

    I'd expect a newer machine to pull tall gearing better.

    This is the most critical review I have found of the Beta 200:

    Re: 2019 Beta 200RR

    Alden, yes, i did just go through the 250 completely but i will be swapping over a bunch of stuff which helps bridge the gap.

    Josh, no clue yet, but after i read Beta was swapping in the 13T for demos, figured it was a no-brainer to try. if it's too much, i'll try 14T.

    Colin, think i read that 14/49 was pretty popular with the Orange 200s ... i've also read this motor is very different than the older KTMs regarding power

    thanks, Greg, he's been creating some good content, i'm a subscriber

    regarding his 'ugly list', i'll be doing the same that i did with the 250, stripping all the unnecessary stuff: lights, computer, switches, oil injection, thermostat, etc. and eventually simplify the entire harness. i've been through it twice now so should be fairly straight forward.

    the clutch cover design doesn't make me warm 'n fuzzy but i assume Polisport or P3 will start making covers soon if not already. his 72 hour homemade plate is kinda hilarious, there isn't one scratch on it.

    Yes, it's my partners new ride. I was very surprised how much torque it has for such a small engine..I'm impressed.
    I still have the YZ 250x, it's really the perfect bike for me.
    We will be cutting new single track trails this fall, excited to finally get more serious about riding dirty again
