Electronic Fuel Injection

Beta’s exclusive EFI system is more than five years in the making. Unique to the system is the ability for dealers to be able to offer two different engine braking settings.

Voyager GPS

Beta is the only manufacturer to offer GPS standard on their dual sport models. The Trial Tech Voyager offers riders a GPS system along with engine temperature, trip meters, and many other features. Riders can also download dual sport event routes.

Folding Mirrors

Mirrors fold out of the way when riding off the public highways.

Off-Road Suspension

Beta is the only manufacture to offer the same suspension package as our RR Off road models.   

Hand Guards

All RS models arrive with hand guards to keep the small branches and the wind away from rider’s hands
