Pretty old thread that one, needs to be a new one since they aren't using the KTM engine anymore.

I just played with their BYOB thing on their website yesterday. How freaking cool is that, build a fully custom bike suited to you? $12,000 later I had built the perfect bike in concept.

Yep, 3.8 gallon tank was an option on the BYOB page.

MotoXotica in Vacaville has a used 2012 and a couple of new ones in the $8500-$9,000 range.

I haven't seen Dan in awhile, I think I'll stop by and check out the bikes tomorrow.

I'm not sure, I've just started to look at the brand. I think 2010 was the first year for the Beta engine...or last year for the KTM engine? Right in there somewhere.

Went and looked at them yesterday, I have found my next victim/dualsport.


I can't seem to find the transmission ratios anywhere? Dan at MotoXotica describes it as not a close ratio six speed like the TE510, but not as wide as a TE610 both of which I've ridden, so that gives me an idea of what to expect.

I really like that a cush hub is an option for the rear wheel as I don't know what kind of clutch basket it has, Dan thinks it's a solid basket.

Stoked to see a high performance bike with a good old FCR carb on it.

Hmmm, might have to sell some bikes and scrape some cash together.

Gear Ratios are on page 24-25 here: http://www.betamotor.com/system/atta..._RR_4T_ENG.pdf

Looks like 2.58, 1.87, 1.47, 1.20, 1.00 and 0.86 so a spread of 3.00. My TE630 has a spread of 3.40 and my TXC449 has a spread of 2.49 so the Beta looks to be right in the middle.

Edit; Is the 498 RR the same as the 520 RS? I don't see a breakdown for the RS bikes.

39mm FCR.


I hate fuel pumps and fuel injection.

I got 60 mpg on my 610 with the FCR.

It's what's on the back on the basket that I'm after. Cush basket like an XR650R, exploda spring cush like a 610/630 or solid like a KLR?
