2015 Beta Xtrainer

from http://www.cyclenews.com/384/26242/R...-Xtrainer.aspx






"Beta has pretty much introduced a new class of motorcycle with its all-new Xtrainer, a compact, lightweight and easy-to-ride all-around off-road bike designed for the entry-level, casual and even expert rider.

"Beta says, “It is the perfect bike for riders who wish to play ride without the intimidation of a full-size enduro machine or for the expert rider looking to enhance their technical skills.

“Our engineers saw the need to build a bike that defines fun, a motorcycle that is perfect for newcomers becoming involved with the wonderful world of enduro riding. The Xtrainer offers excellent performance while at the same time is easy to ride.”

"The Beta Xtrainer features a smaller deltabox frame, which provides for a lower seat height and a lower center of gravity. It has a 43mm fork and single-shock rear suspension.

"We have been working on the Xtrainer for a few years; the idea was not to copy the competition but rather develop a bike for a market that we felt was being missed, the entry-level enduro or off-road bike. After riding the Xtrainer I realized how cool it is to ride a motorcycle off-road that has such usable and easy to manage power can be. The bike is just plain fun!" said Tim Pilg, Beta USA Marketing Manager.

"The bike’s powerplant is derived from Beta’s popular 300 RR two-stroke that is said to produce a linear and progressive power, and it has electric starting. It has an electronically controlled oil injection system, which eliminates the need of having to mix fuel and oil. In other words, no premixing!

"Beta has not yet announced a price but says it is expected to be available in March, 2015.

that looks fun... and damned pleased every time a 'new' 2 stroke comes around.
oil injection is awesome for a trail bike. myself, i don't mind premix... but know that could be a deterrent to some.

it being Beta, wonder what the $$ is gonna be...

Beta dealers - enduro or trials?

I was curious which Beta dealers were going to sell the X-Trainer. According to the Beta USA website some dealers sell enduros, some trials bikes, a few sell both. Here's the reply + delivery news:

"Meet the Xtrainer...

From Beta press release - http://www.betausa.com/node/1983

"Xtrainer (aka, Cross Trainer) is the only true "All-Around, Entry Level" enduro bike in the market. It is the perfect bike for riders who wish to play ride without the intimidation of a full size enduro machine or for the expert rider looking to enhance their technical skills."

Electric star ? Oil injected ? Two stroke ? That sounds like a great off-roader to me. Looks more than a capable machine for most recreational riders and probably good enough for real enduro competition as well. I'll wait and see what they list for around here.....if CA gets them.

hmm... i just did that. i'll go ahead and retract my statement.
guess i'm getting old... i remember when you could buy a new bike for $2k

(i'd say $790, but that makes me feel older. plus i don't remember then. mind is the first thing to go and all. plus knees. knees go too.)
