RR 480 4T MY 2023
To quote that famous song from the 1990s, nothing sums up the latest addition to the Beta family better than the words “simply the best, better than all the rest…”. While the world is rediscovering the values of essential functionality, Betamotor continues to ride a wave of impressive motorsports victories, and began the 2022 edition of the Enduro World Championship as incumbent champion once again. It is in this context that the Rignano sull’Arno-based constructor presents the new MY23 RR, a bike which carries over many of the characteristics that made its predecessor so unbeatable last season, but which has been revised with a number of significant new features introduced across the range, plus other upgrades specific to certain engine sizes, in order to maintain the unassailable supremacy of the RR family as a whole.
Beta worked in close collaboration with the Enduro champions Brad Freeman and Steve Holcombe to develop a suite of new solutions regarding both the powertrain and the frame/suspension for the MY 2023 RR 2 Str and 4 Str models, to consolidate the already highly acclaimed characteristics of the previous generation. As always, the guiding philosophy of the engineers at Rignano sull’Arno has been to not only increasing the performance of the brand’s bikes, but to also making this performance even more accessible. So rather than major changes, this model year has gained a series of upgrades intended to consolidate all the outstanding qualities of each individual model. Completing the picture are a new all-red colour scheme and new plastics with a more linear, essential, and sleeker design than before, providing the RR with an even more minimalist look. Some say “less is more”: Beta believes that only the very best will do, and creates bikes with no frills, with only what you really need, whether racing or out on a Sunday ride with your mates.
As always, the range is made up of 8 different models, each with its own personality, to cater for the needs of a very diverse spectrum of riders. There’s the perfect RR for every rider, but what every model has in common is the ability to instil confidence in the user and offer a genuinely rewarding riding experience.
