BETA TO DEBUT XTRAINER AT HELL’S GATE
After launching their all-new Xtrainer at last November’s EICMA show, Beta will now throw the pint-sized 300 two-stoker into some serious competition at Hell’s Gate.
In the very capable hands of Ben Hemingway, Beta look set to give the 300 Xtrainer a proper grilling at the first major extreme enduro of the year.
Initially geared towards that of an entry-level enduro bike, it’s going to be very interesting to see how the bike shapes up on one of the toughest and most brutal enduro courses in the world.
If the Xtrainer survives Hell’s Gate this could be a game changer…
Launched at the EICMA show in Milan, Beta was boldly claiming the Xtrainer would revolutionise the enduro market with its compact, lightweight and easy to ride machine.
Here’s the official word…
The Xtrainer represents the only real enduro motorcycle enduro aimed at all those who wish to have a motorcycle that they can have fun safely and at the same time develop their technical skills.
Beta’s engineers have developed a bike that combines outstanding performance and maximum usability. The compactness of the vehicle, its weight, its limited ground clearance, the regular performance of the torque curve and linearity of delivery make it the ideal tool for those who want to ride a true enduro motorcycle that transmits confidence and control in every condition.
Features include a smaller delta box frame which provides a lower seat height and a low centre of gravity. Add to this a 43mm front fork along with a dedicated rear shock and you have a bike that is agile and easy to control which builds rider’s confidence.
The chassis is mated to an engine that is from the popular 300 RR only designed to offer a power that is more linear and progressive making the bike more docile. Our engineers then added electronically controlled oil injection to provide the perfect oil/gas mixture thus eliminating the need to premix.
