Exactly, nice plated dirt bike but not a dual sport. Lofty price tag and still no fuel injection? Now some will chime in that they prefer carb'd bikes still but really FI is now and the future. Why a manufacturer in 2013 would hold back from this says something about their technology to me.

Actually only 800ml each side or 27 ounces. That's not much engine oil so I'd suspect oil changes every 1,000 miles or less. The split crankcase system didn't work out so great for KTM, I hope Beta did a better job with it.

Not really how it went down but nevertheless he is selling them. That's a big plus for Beta owners.
