How Much Power Does the 2023 Beta Xtrainer Make?

Dyno testing Beta’s entry-level enduro motorcycle for horsepower and torque.

Beta offers a trio of 300 two-stroke off-road motorcycles—the highest-spec model being the 300 RR Race Edition. The standard version is the 300 RR, and there’s also the Xtrainer. Its carbureted liquid-cooled two-stroke 292cc single-cylinder engine is based on the 300 RR’s powerplant, but features a specifically designed exhaust pipe tuned for torque, lower compression ratio, spacers in the intake tract, and an air chamber in the power valve.

In its inaugural appearance on Dirt Rider’s in-house Dynojet 250i rear-wheel dynamometer, the Xtrainer spun 31.7 hp at 8,200 rpm and 22.9 lb.-ft. of torque at 6,200 rpm. When testing it in the dirt, the Italian machine’s linear horsepower curve was quite noticeable.

“This is more like a softer, almost electric-feeling engine,” test rider Allan Brown said. “It’s smooth off the bottom and builds power controllably. And because it’s a two-stroke, it still has a very free, lightweight feeling with little to no engine-braking.”
