Racing like never before!
Spring is here and conditions are prime for the most hardcore enduro enthusiasts to be getting out there to put the new RR Racing MY 2022 range through its paces!
The Enduro GP championship is drawing to a close and Beta’s riders are more focused than ever on getting the best out of their bikes. So, what better time than this for Beta to give you the chance to own a race-ready version of the MY 2022 RR 2ST-4ST range launched in June.
In keeping with Betamotor Italy traditions, the bikes of the RR Racing range come complete with everything needed to transform the Enduro models of the Tuscan brand into machines that are race-ready for the toughest conditions and the most competitive events.
For the MY 2022 version, the engineers at Betamotor Italy have worked on developing upgrades for both the suspension and the engine, while achieving weight savings and keeping all the styling and functional details you would expect from a Racing version from Beta.
As with the standard version, the racing range is also made up of 8 different models, each with its own unique character and strengths.
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 lower categories and more expert riders looking for a fun bike.
In keeping with the pure racing traditions of Beta, each bike in the MY 2022 RR Racing range differs from the respective standard bike in a number of different aspects: with a series of racing parts shared across the range, such as handguards and components in red anodised alloy, and certain specific elements for each model. Let’s take a look at these in detail.
For all models
- Quick-release front axle: immediately recognisable by the red anodised alloy release lever, this component is crucial for saving precious seconds in a race when you need to change a tyre.
- Red Vertigo handguards: the sturdy structure of these parts combined with eye-catching “in mould” graphics make them must-have accessories for off-road riding.
- Metzeler tyres: the bikes of the Racing range are fitted with the same tyres used by the official team riders in the Enduro GP championship. High-end products with championship-winning levels of grip!
- Machined alloy footpegs: when riding an enduro bike on a competitive level, you’re constantly changing the position of your body. So it’s essential that the contact points between you and the bike offer impeccable levels of grip. For your feet, this is ensured by racing footpegs with a large contact area in black machined alloy and with sturdy steel foot peg pins.
- Rear sprocket with anodised aluminium core and steel teeth by ZF: top-class performance, lightness and strength – the perfect mix of all the attributes any racing component must have.
- Dedicated blue racing seat: with anti-slip gripper cover and document holder pocket for unparalleled grip, comfort and practicality.
- Anodised black gear lever and a rear brake pedal.
- Gearbox oil filler cap, engine oil filler cap and oil filter cap anodised red aluminium
- Chain tensioners in red anodised alloy.
- New Racing graphics and red rim decals.
48 mm Kayaba AOS closed cartridge fork: you can’t talk about the suspension of these bikes without mentioning the closed cartridge fork by KYB, the leading brand in Enduro for years, whose products have once again been chosen for the MY 2022 models. This product has been continuously honed and improved through collaboration between Beta and Kayaba, giving shape to a highly specialised component that not only maximises the performance of RR Racing bikes but also makes this performance even more accessible. Anodised internal parts minimise sliding friction, while adjustable compression and rebound damping let each rider find the perfect setting. Betamotor’s engineers have, however, revised the calibration of this component, mainly to improve comfort during initial compression, when shocks from the terrain are transmitted to the rider.
For the models of the RR Racing 2ST MY 2022 family, Beta has decided to stick with its choice of doing away with an automatic mixer, so that these race bikes continue to set benchmarks for lightness and, as a result, agility. RR Racing 2ST bikes must therefore be fuelled with oil/petrol pre-mix ̶ a characteristic accentuating the thoroughbred racing nature of this version.
These bikes can still be fitted with the Beta Genuine oil mixer, available as an accessory from the Beta Factory Parts catalogue.
Unlike past Racing editions, which received no substantial modifications to the engine over the standard model, for the MY 2022 RR 200 Racing – the powerplants have been upgraded to add a pinch of spice to the recipe. Beta’s engineers have modified the cylinder head of the RR 200 Racing version and replaced the two power valves used in the standard engine with a single, stiffer component. These upgrades contribute to increased power at mid to high engine revs.
The RR 200 Racing is road legal, ADR approved and LAMS compliant in all Australian states and territories.
