Beta’s RR & RR Racing Models: What’s Right For You?

11 months ago | Words: Andy Wigan

With eight options in Beta’s RR model line-up – four four-strokes and four two-strokes – the Italian manufacturer has made sure that consumers are spoilt for choice when it comes to their enduro bikes. But that’s not the half of it – literally! For each of those eight ‘standard’ RR models, there’s an up-specced RR Racing model – bikes that now come with a Kayaba fork and shock, along with a bunch of added components to improve both protection and performance, along with a $1200 to $2000 price tag premium over their RR counterparts.

So, with 16 models staring back at you from the dealership floor, how do you make an educated call about which bike is best for you? Do you go for a two-stroke or four? An RR or RR Racing model? To help shed some light on the performance differences between Beta’s RR and RR Racing models and how to choose the model that’s likely to best suit you and the sort of riding you do, we enlisted the help of a bloke who spent a few months sampling both the standard and up-specced Beta machines: off-road icon, Geoff Ballard. Tune in for some sage advice from GB…
