Revealed: New Beta RR 2T-4T MY 2021
After two months without off-road riding, the Red World Champions of Enduro are back with a new Model Year.
The Italian bike designed and assembled entirely at Betamotor’s Rignano sull’Arno premises, brings in the new 2021 RR Range with numerous evolutions of the new generation model launched in 2020.
In 2019, the world-renowned duo Steve Holcombe and Brad Freeman achieved a double world victory unprecedented for Beta. Holcombe became E3 World Champion, while Freeman achieved the same result for the prestigious EnduroGP.
In addition to the tests performed in competition fields, the huge success of the RRs among enthusiasts all over the world has enabled Betamotor technicians to further test, develop, and improve the RR’s, resulting in a 2021 bike that is a mix of high quality, technological innovation, and riding pleasure.
This relentless quest for success which has been built on top level competitions, exhausting tests of Beta’s research and development team, and feedbacks from enthusiasts have made it possible to fine-tune and apply numerous improvements on the new RR’s. A more aggressive look and an all-red colouration are the icing on the cake for this Model Year ̶ with the Beta logo in centre stage on the radiator shrouds.
The new RR models in a nutshell:
RR 2T 125
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 the lower categories and more expert riders looking for a fun bike.
RR 2T 200
The chassis set-up and engine derived from its smaller sibling, ensuring it’s extremely light weight and excellent handling but with decidedly greater torque and power. Oil injection and an electric starter complete the package which is perfect for Enduro enthusiasts.
RR 2T 250
Ideal for those looking for a gentler 2-stroke bike with slightly less power and torque than top-of-the-range models to ensure excellent handling.
RR 2T 300
Made for those who appreciate a big engine with significant torque at any speed. Suitable for those who favor long gearing.
RR 4T 350
This is the easiest-to-handle bike in the 4-stroke model range; it favors high-rev riding yet retains a very linear power output.
RR 4T 390
With an ideal handling to power ratio, its winning feature lies in its outstanding traction.
RR 4T 430
A high-performance engine that is at its best when the rider exploits the long gearing and significant torque.
RR 4T 480
This bike best expresses itself in wide open spaces. Its characteristics are similar to the 430 model but with even greater torque and power, suitable for more expert and physically fit riders.
