The Beta's riding position is pleasant but after 40 kilometers it becomes uncomfortable due to the narrow and hard seat. 

 

The playground of this Beta is in town or on winding roads where each trip becomes an excuse to have fun.  The liveliness of the front fork, the large handlebars and 17 inch wheels allows for fast and accurate direction changes.  Whatever the state of the surface, its suspension does an outstanding job.  Together with good tire grip, roadholding is difficult to fault. The large brake discs ensure powerful and durable stopping.
