Best price on OTD ktm 300 or Beta 300?

Looking for either and will end up street plating soon after.

Or if there's a used one someone has I'm game for that too!

Not sure about great deals on a new beta but I got a little discount and plenty of discounts on the BYOB stuff on my 14 Beta 300rr from Franks Motorbikes. I had the choice between the KTM and Beta. The Beta was sure the right choice for me and it came with a plate. No hoops to jump through. Frank will do you right.

It came with a plate?????!

Only reason i wouldnt consider selling my wr300 an upgrade is it came with a plate. But if the beta 300 two stroke comes with a plate I will be cleaning the Husky up for craigslist this weekend. What did you pay for your 300 otd?

The 2014 300rr was 7500 with the Beta discount + damn sales tax and licensing. I loaded mine up with BYOB bling so cant really compare cost. BYOB did discount everything I added and installed it free. Got my bike at Franks set up and ready to ride. Yes Plated The Beta 300rr came from the factory with High/Low, Brake lights and horn as well and already wired for blinkers. It also has a happy button that actually works every time. I havnt even tried the kick start yet.

They Retail 7999 and Beta gave a 250 discount but then shipping/dock was something like 300 so was kind of a wash. I just posted the bars to show it came with switch for High/Low, horn and blinkers as well as you can see the brake light switch on the brake master cyl. Also has a rear brake light switch and both work. The spedo also has a high/low indicator and blinker indicator built and wired in. Just saying if you plan to plate a 300XC-W all these items are going to cost along with the inspection.

Cant complain about he 200 but I push th scales at 240 and at 50 slowing down so the nice low end grunt and ability to short shift moved me to the 300.
