RR MY 2023 Simply the Best
To quote Bonnie Tyler’s famous song from the 1980s, nothing sums up the latest additions to the Beta family
better than the words “simply the best, better than all the rest…”. While the world is rediscovering the values
of essential functionality, Betamotor continues to ride a wave of impressive motorsports victories, and began
the 2022 edition of the Enduro World Championship as incumbent champion once again. It is in this context
that the Rignano sull’Arno-based constructor presents the new MY2023 RR, a bike which carries over many
of the characteristics that made its predecessor so unbeatable last season, but which has been revised with
a number of significant new features introduced across the range, plus other upgrades specific to certain
engine sizes, in order to maintain the unassailable supremacy of the RR family as a whole.
Beta worked in close collaboration with Enduro champions Brad Freeman and Steve Holcombe to develop
new solutions regarding both the powertrain and the frame/suspension package for the MY 2023 RR 2 Stroke
and 4 Stroke models, to consolidate the already highly acclaimed characteristics of the previous generation.
As always, the guiding philosophy of the engineers at Rignano sull’Arno has been to not only increase the
performance of the brand’s bikes, but to also making this performance even more accessible. So rather than
major changes, this model year has gained a series of upgrades intended to consolidate all the outstanding
qualities of each individual model. Completing the picture is a new all-red colour scheme and new plastics
with a more linear and sleeker design than before, providing the RR with an even more minimalist look. Some
say “less is more”, Beta believes that only the very best will do, and creates bikes with only what you really
need, whether racing or out on a Sunday ride with your mates.
As always, the range is made up of 8 different models, each with its own personality, to cater for the needs
of a very diverse spectrum of riders. There’s the perfect RR for every rider, but what every model has in
common is the ability to instil confidence in the user and offer a genuinely rewarding riding experience. The
key characteristics of each model are as follows:

CHARACTERISTICS OF RR MODELS
2-STROKE
125cc 200cc 250cc 300cc
The smallest bike in
the Beta range, it is
the lightest and
easiest to handle. In
pure racing style, it is
suitable for both
young riders coming
up from the lower
categories and more
expert riders looking
for a fun bike.
The chassis set-up and engine
derive from its smaller sister,
ensuring an extremely light
weight and excellent handling
but with decidedly greater
torque and power. Oil injection
and electric start make this a
complete bike, just perfect for
Enduro enthusiasts.
Ideal for those looking
for a 2-stroke bike
with slightly less
power and torque
than the top-of-therange 300cc models to
ensure excellent all
round performance.
Made for those
who appreciate a
big bore engine
with significant
torque at any
speed. Suitable for
those who favour
power and torque

or the MY 2023 RR range are summed up below:
For all models
• Suspension: Beta never stops developing the frame and suspension of its bikes. In the quest for an
even sharper, purer rider feeling, Betamotor’s engineers have revised the internals of the front fork

  • a ZF component, as on the previous generation – for the 2023 model year of the RR family. First and
    foremost, the geometry of the oil passages around the fork piston have been modified to eliminate
    any throttling effect completely and ensure impeccably smooth damper action throughout the entire
    travel. By creating freer-flowing oil return passages, this improvement opens up even greater
    possibilities for setting up the fork, as eliminating all impediments to the oil flow means that even
    the smallest change in setting produces a noticeable result. This results in an improved rider comfort
    and a more effective fork support throughout the initial movement of the damper. Therefore, the
    bike remains composed and controllable even in rough terrain conditions.
    • Radiator shrouds on tank: one of the changes over the previous generation with an impact on both
    style and function is the revised shape of the new radiator shrouds on the RR range. The new shrouds
    are narrower than before to give the rider more freedom of movement, especially when cornering
    in a motocross style with the bike leaned sharply into the bend and with the inner leg extended
    forwards. More ergonomically shaped than before, the shrouds let the rider assume a snugger
    position on the seat with the bike gripped firmly between the legs for an even better rider feedback.
    The sleeker new shrouds also contribute to the revised, simple, and essential new look of the bike

Graphics: all models now feature an all-red colour scheme. The style of the graphics is more
minimalist than before, with bold, clearly defined forms and purer, more modern lines which
emphasise the muscular shape of the bike and link the new shrouds seamlessly to the other
components.
