First introduced in 2013, the Beta 300 RR serves as the Italian manufacturer’s largest-displacement two-stroke off-road motorcycle alongside the up-spec 300 RR Race Edition. Beta claims the 300 RR is designed for the casual off-road rider or racer who is looking for more than just a playbike.
In our review of the 2020 Beta 300 RR, test rider Allan Brown cited his approval of how well-rounded the Italian machine is after he got the suspension broken in and properly setup: “I have taken the 300 RR to the open desert, single-track trails, natural flowing motocross tracks, and plenty of hard enduro canyons, and it does everything fairly well.”
There’s a plethora of competition in the 300cc two-stroke off-road bike segment. Some of the bikes the 2020 Beta 300 RR is going up against are the 2020 KTM 300 XC TPI, 2020 KTM 300 XC-W TPI, 2020 Husqvarna TX 300i, 2020 Husqvarna TE 300i, 2020 TM EN 300 Fi, and 2020 Sherco 300 SE-R. The retail price of the 2020 Beta 300 RR is $9,199, which makes it the least expensive bike in this group.
Beta went to work on its 300cc two-stroke off-road bike for 2020. The Italian manufacturer added a counterbalancer to the engine in order to reduce vibration and designed an all-new chassis including the frame, swingarm, fuel tank, seat, and bodywork.
