To celebrate Steve Holcombe’s back-to-back titles in the Enduro World Championship, Beta released 200 examples of a limited edition replica based on his 300 RR racer. 25 of them were exported to the US – here’s #77 of the series.
The original 300 RR two-stroke was already an impressive machine, and the Holcombe replica added a numbered/signed metal plate with certificate of authenticity, Reikon handlebar and guards, fully machined footpegs/triple clamps/pedals, quick-release rear brake caliper support, and master cylinder covers. It also got a chain guide, upgraded rear brake disc, “simplified” wiring harness, and several parts off Steve’s bike – grippier seat cover, handlebar grips, 49 tooth rear sprocket, hand guards, and of course, the graphics.
This example is still new with zero miles, and the sale includes a spare set of plastics so you can keep the Holcombe livery in perfect condition. Original MSRP was about $10,000, but the seller of this example wants a premium for the rarity. That could make sense if this bike was very old and collectible, but at this point it just feels like a dealer leftover that couldn’t be sold for MSRP. Either way, find this Beta for sale in Moscow, Idaho for $15,000 here on Craigslist.
Like this Beta and its exclusivity but you want one to ride? #84 is also for sale, and it’s got a few flaws that come from actually getting a dirt bike out in the dirt. Find that one in Franklin, Tennessee for $6,500 here on ADVRider.
