Meet the 2013 Beta M4-4T which is a compact bike especially developed for the beginner riders. The bike was built with agility in mind, therefore it features a stiff, yet light frame which helps it keep the total weight to as low as 133 kg (dry).
The motorcycle’s center piece is a single cylinder, 4 stroke, air cooled, S.O.H.C engine which is mated on a six speed transmission with multi-disc clutch. The suspensions system is pretty decent too and includes a hydraulic fork with 46 mm shaft and a rear monoshock with adjustable spring preload.
You won’t have any significant complains about the stopping power either which is assured by front (310 mm) and rear (220 mm) disc brakes.
The 2013 Beta M4-4T rides on front and rear 17 inch rims shod in 120/70 – 17 and 150/60 – 17 tyres, respectively.

The new M4 is good not only for who enter the two-wheeled universe for the first time (her power below 25 kW makes her suitable to the newly-licensed) but also for all the drivers who can’t stand heavy and little handy bikes, longing for an original and absolutely fun motorbike.
Light as a bike, with a low barycentre and off-road motorbike size she guarantees incomparable ease of handling and control. Her catlike agility and grip fear no comparison and allow you to slip off the urban jungle with great immediacy and fun: the brand new M4 is capable to make things tricky for her rivals, whatever be their displacement. If the daily urban transfers becomes fun, when riding a M4, try to imagine the week-end trips: facing country or mountain winding roads will be her specialty!
Great character and aesthetic originality thanks to an innovative design revealing lightness and energy even at first glance. Slender lines, aggressive and strongly distinctive makes M4 a really fresh and airy proposal not only for her shape but also for her substance.
4-stroke engine: great lightness, extreme familiarity and guaranteed reliability are its best weapons, but don’t forget that consumptions and maintenance costs are extremely low… what an eternal engine!
