Beta USA presents its new 2017 Offroad and Offroad Street Legal range After a greatly successful 2016 season in both sales and racing, Beta returns in 2017 with their Enduro range that continues the forward progress of the brand through refinements in features and quality. The 2016 season has seen Beta achieve their first-ever overall victory in the World Enduro Championship in Portugal with racer Steve Holcombe along with many other victories from Johnny Aubert and Alex Salvini, both at the World and National level. Beta USA continues to push the racing scene with their factory team effort in National Enduro, GNCC, EnduroX, Hare & Hound, as well as National Trial.
Beta takes the information they have learned from their race teams as well as information from the everyday casual rider and combined the two to further enhance the riding experience. The 2017 RR models continue to offer an “easy to ride” philosophy while also providing the rider with a stable and distinct design along with the quality one expects from the brand.
The 2017 models, available in 2 stroke 250 and 300 cc and 350/390/430/500 cc. for 4 stroke, are a direct evolution of the 2016 version and retain their most successful features. The amazing 300 Xtrainer returns as well for 2017 with an updated graphics package.
Two of the most exciting changes for 2017: 1) Beta has combined the features of the 2016 RR and RS models to create the all new RR-S which are all 50-state street legal and will now fill the segment of “Street Legal Off Road”
2) The all new model for the USA is the 125 RR-S. A play bike that is fully capable on or off the road. 125 RR-S:
This all new model offers the play rider many benefits including light weight and just the right amount of power in a chassis that handle like a real motorcycle should. Many of the play bike on the market are either not legal for the street and/or have suspension that should be left for the street only. The 125 RR-S is a full featured model just like its big brothers and is destined to instill confidence in riders of all levels.
The 125 RR-S is street legal in all 50 states and has the following features: • Liquid cooled 4 stroke engine: the engine is manufactured in Italy and offers electric start and a six speed transmission • Low Seat Height: At 35.5”, vertically-challenged riders will appreciate touching the ground. • Locking gas cap & seat: both the gas cap and seat lock while using the same key. • Wheels & swingarm: constructed of aluminum to reduce weight and enhance the look. • Fan Kit: Cooling fan kit included to help keep engine temps cool on hot days. 250/300 RR and 350/390/430/500 RR-S Chassis: A number of features have been tweaked on all the models of the range and some of them come directly from experience at top competitive levels. The chassis, with the well-tested chrome-moly steel frame with double split cradle has the following new features: • Sachs fork: increased 5mm in length to provide longer travel. Liqui Moly fork oil has been installed to reduce heat build up and friction in the fork. • Sachs rear shock: new high/low speed adjustment system, now more accurate and independent from each other. This allows the rider to make more fine adjustments based on his or her riding style and needs. • Triple clamps: new design that is lighter and offers more rigidity. • Silver rims with black spokes: supplied by Excel, these new wheels are lighter and give the new bike a distinctive look. • Digital meter: (RR 2 strokes) new design, along with the timer, kilometre/mph indicator with more adjustment features including instant speed, average and maximum speeds as well as the ability to adjust mileage in smaller increments. Also new for 2017 is a built in battery voltage reading. • Voyager GPS: (RR-S) models arrive with the Trial Tech Voyager GPS meter • New fuel cap: has built-in breather valve • New graphics
250/300 RR Engine: A fine development was carried out also on the engines, which also thanks to the contribution of the Beta Factory Team riders – Steve Holcombe and Johnny Aubert for 2 stroke and Alex Salvini for 4 stroke – have led to the introduction of important new features. For the 250 and 300 2 stroke, introduced in 2016, the automatic oil injection system continues: as well as ensuring a perfect fuel-oil mix under any condition, it eliminates the trouble of having to premix the oil and fuel and eliminating the need to carry oil with you in the event of a fuel top up.
Dual map ignition - two settings that can be changed from a switch on the handlebar that allow the rider to choose between wet or dry map settings. 350/390/430/500 RR-S Engine Electronic Fuel Injection continues on all 4 stroke models including 350, 390, 430 and 500. Thanks to its great reliability, easy control and outstanding throttle response, it has generated great positive feedback from end users. The system continues to be refined by the Beta team of engineers along with Synerject. The 42mm throttle body provides the optimum performance without the “hard hit” most current EFI off road motorcycles suffer from.
Camshafts – the new lift profiles radically change the core of 4 stroke engines, making them even easier to ride, while retaining their top performance.
Valve springs – which, combined with the camshafts, are used to considerably improve performance of the engine at the bottom end of the power delivery and also reducing the engine braking.
