FIRST LOOK: 2024 BETA RR RANGE

11 months ago | Words: Matt Bernard | Photos: Beta Motor

In 2020, Beta made waves in the off-road world with the introduction of eight new-generation two-stroke and four-stroke RR machines. This bold move laid the foundation for Beta’s unwavering commitment to excellence, as they continued to refine their bikes in the subsequent years. The unveiling of a groundbreaking 300cc two-stroke engine was welcomed in 2022 and building on this success, the eagerly anticipated 2023 RR models underwent significant enhancements. With their impressive results in the EnduroGP World Championship and continual development of the range, Beta’s market share has soared, particularly in Australia. So, what’s new for 2024? Check out the information from Beta below…

What’s new?

New Seat
The seat in the MY24 RR range features a redesigned foam with a different geometry and density. This provides greater rider comfort and a more comfortable point of contact with the bike. The increased support area and improved materials contribute to an enhanced riding experience.

Suspension
Continuing the refinement of the suspension setup, the MY24 bikes come with lighter upper fork tubes, particularly in the engagement area of the lower fork sliders. The modified machining of the tubes offers controlled flexibility, resulting in smoother damping on rough terrain. These enhancements significantly improve comfort and sensitivity for riders.

New Radiators
The MY24 RR range introduces new radiators for the 250 and 300 2-stroke models, as well as the entire 4-stroke range. These radiators are lighter and tougher, featuring shaped reservoirs in the upper section. This design allows for a greater steering angle, enhancing maneuverability. The new radiators also offer improved coolant circulation for better vehicle cooling. They are reinforced for added durability and equipped with a new non-plastic cap that offers increased toughness and protection against potential impacts.

New Graphics
The MY24 range showcases completely redesigned graphics, departing from the simple, essential look of the previous models. The new graphics feature an aggressive, geometric, and modern style. Skillfully incorporating the classic red, white, and black colors that are typical of Beta motorcycles, the graphics seamlessly integrate with the frame and plastics, enhancing the characteristic Beta red.

Brakes
The front braking system in the MY24 RR range has undergone upgrades to the brake line. The line’s protective sheath is now fastened with dual crimping, both at the top and bottom. Previously, it was only crimped at the bottom. This improvement enables the brake line protection to withstand continuous stresses more effectively, ensuring optimal performance and durability.

Improvements Specific to 2-Stroke and 4-Stroke Models
In addition to the general updates across the entire MY24 RR range, certain models receive specific improvements to elevate their performance even further.

RR 300 2-Stroke
The main bearings in the RR 300 2-stroke engine have been upgraded to roller bearings with enhanced toughness and performance. These improved bearings contribute to better engine reliability, providing riders with added confidence and peace of mind.

RR 4-Stroke
The traction control system in the RR 4-stroke models has undergone further refinement by Betamotor technicians. Through improved mapping, the system operates with greater precision, resulting in reduced unwanted or excessive intervention. The refined traction control enhances the riding experience and allows riders to better harness the power of the bike.

THE RANGE

RR 200 2T
Derived from the 125cc, the RR 200 2T features an extremely lightweight chassis, excellent handling, and significantly greater torque and power. With oil injection and an electric starter, it is a complete bike perfect for Enduro enthusiasts.

RR 125 2T
As the smallest bike in the Beta range, the RR 125 2T is the lightest and easiest to handle. Suitable for both young riders transitioning from smaller capacities and experienced riders seeking a fun bike with pure racing style.

RR 250 2T
The RR 250 2T offers a gentler 2-stroke bike with slightly less power and torque than the top-of-the-range 300cc models. Ideal for riders looking for a milder 2-stroke experience.

RR 300 2T
Designed for those who appreciate a carbureted big bore 2T engine with significant and usable torque at any speed. Suitable for riders who prefer long gearing.

RR 350 4T EFI
The RR 350 4T EFI is the easiest-to-handle bike in the 4-stroke model range. It favors high-rev riding while providing a very linear power output.

RR 390 4T EFI
Featuring a high-performance engine, the RR 390 4T EFI excels when the rider exploits its long gearing and significant torque.

RR 430 4T EFI
This bike thrives in wide open spaces and shares similar characteristics with the 430 model. However, it offers even greater torque and power, making it suitable for more experienced and physically fit riders.

RR 480 4T EFI
The RR 480 4T EFI delivers exceptional torque and power, providing a thrilling experience for advanced riders.

The MY24 Beta RR models are set to arrive at Australian dealers in September 2023, with pricing to be confirmed closer to the arrival date.
