Beta has just announced its Race Edition off-road models. In the case of the four-strokes, this means dirt-only models without EPA emission and noise restrictions. In the case of the two-strokes, it means lighter bikes without oil injectors for the purists. Here’s the official Beta announcement.
The 2019 Beta RR Racing Editions have arrived! These Italian thoroughbreds are based from the standard RR models yet offer distinctive features found only on race bikes and are manufactured to the same specifications that Beta Factory rider Steve Holcombe used to become 2017 Enduro GP World Champion and allowed Beta to clinch the Enduro GP Constructors’ World Championship title. They are also the models that Beta USA factory rider’s Max Gerston, Michael Witkowski, and Newly-Crowned 250 Hare & Hound Champion Chance Fullerton used to compete in all of the AMA Championships in 2018.
For 2019, there are a total of seven different RR Racing Editions offered including the addition of the new RR Racing 125 RR! Other racing model sizes return as well providing racers with many choices to suit their riding style. These returning models include 250 and 300cc 2-stroke as well as 350, 390, 430, and 480cc 4-stroke. With many features added to the standard models, the RR Racing line includes the following updates for 2019 that are unique to the model range including the following:
2019 Beta 300 RR-Race Edition
Beta engineers have been hard at work developing the front and rear suspension settings to improve overall handling under the most extreme conditions.
Sachs 48 mm closed cartridge fork with anodized slider: stiffer and more resistant to wear, while providing less friction. SKF low-friction fork seals and wipers are also installed.
New fork shoes (yoke): stiffer and lighter.
New fork guards: designed together with the shoe to combine practicality and design while providing more strength.
Fully redesigned ZF Sachs shock: with more compact 46 mm piston, about ½ lb. lighter. The new piston has been designed to ensure more stable operation as the oil temperature varies, while increasing sensitivity to enhance comfort and traction. The small upper base and reservoir have also been redesigned to be farther away from the exhaust pipe while minimizing weight. The new spring is also lighter.
Black anodized triple clamp.
For racing, the 2-stroke range has no automatic oil injector and requires pre-mix. This feature was removed to reduce weight.
The range includes all those aesthetic and practical features one expects from a real Racing bike:
Quick-release front axle pull: speeds up tire repairs, saving precious seconds in race situations.
Moto-Style hand guards: modern design, tough and “In-Mold” graphics; ideal for extreme off-road riding.
Black Aluminum footrests: light yet strong, wider than the standard model’s steel pegs to ensure maximum, long-lasting grip under all conditions.
Rear sprocket with anodized aluminum core and steel teeth: an unbeatable combination of lightness and durability.
Red aluminum chain tensioner blocks. providing quick and precise adjustments to the chain
Racing seat with document pocket.
Black anodized shift/brake levers.
Transmission oil cap, engine oil cap and oil filter cap in red anodized aluminum.
Racing graphics and red rim stickers.
The 125 RR Racing Edition 2-stroke is a stunning achievement: in addition to all the above, it boasts a suspension system specially designed for the 125 chassis.
Same front and rear suspension as the larger Racing models.
New cylinder, with modified exhaust port and timing charts.
New exhaust flange.
New exhaust valve system and new boosters.
New clutch cover with air bleed system to give the clutch improved feel, a modified oil filler cap position.
New clutch basket.
New expansion chamber.
Improved low-rev power delivery combined with greater high-rev acceleration, resulting in better performance across the rev range and more linear, manageable power output. The outcome is a considerably broader riding range, a crucial feature on a small-displacement engine.
