Constant evolution with an even wider range of use.

The Beta RR Enduro models have become well known for their immediate and genuine approach, for reliability, long maintenance intervals and, last but not least their 100% Italian style. Today, the third generation RR4T models are equipped with our own engine made in Rignano Sull'Arno and arrive on the market as the result of a continuous development for many different riding abilities. Many are the refinements and innovations, both on the frame and the engine, all designed to increase reliability and riding feeling. A wide range of displacements are now available, strengthened by the new 350cc engine, a first for Beta in the enduro market. For 2012 Beta has developed a complete range of enduro bikes to appeal to both the weekend hobbyist as well as the seasoned Pro.

ENGINE
Balance countershaft

New roller bearing for increased reliability (3 times more durable)
 

Cylinder head
Reinforced camshaft bridge: increased stiffness reduces the deformation of the camshaft under stress, it performs better with a valve train that is much more precise.
Reinforced valve retainers
New cam chain tensioner with resized retainer mechanism to reduce noise when engine is cold.
New cam chain guide with metal insert: stronger at high temperature and under stress, it allows a more precise function of valve train.
Additional oil spray on the cam chain to increase lubrication, improve chain guide workings and reduce losses due to friction.

Clutch
Reinforced primary gear: increased rigidity reduces axial movements of the clutch bell providing precision to the engagement and increased working stability under stress usage.
New clutch springs: high quality material to resist to high temperatures, minimum tollerances to drastically increase engagement force.

Gear box
New guide design in gear desmodromic for a smooth gear action.

Lubrication
New oil drain cap with hexagon head to make maintenance operation easier.

New silencer
New design, shaped, integrated with bike style and new performances: the new silencer provides performance improvement along all the ranges, better feeling and engine ride-ability.
Full respect of noise emission FIM/2Metremax rule.


FRAME
New Sachs USD 48 mm fork. It's the big news for the 2012 models! Thanks to the TFX - TwinFlux Technology, developed exclusively by Sachs for Beta, the new fork allows an immediate lightness and dynamism feeling.
Hydraulic system with compression / extension pistons with differentiated diameter (greater in compression, smaller in extension). This choice improves the balance of the oil flow inside the stems and, specifically, it makes the front end capable of cashing out the bumps without unpredictable reactions.
48 kg springs: they offer more support which means higher compression braking and, consequently, greater stability and easy turning ability.
Significant improvement of smoothness operation
Adoption of SKF seals and dust seals. Thanks to the special self-lubricating compound they reduce the stick-slip effect and provide better working precision.
Improved progressive action to provide a more positive feedback to the rider
New dedicated triple clamp. The increased stiffness allows for increased precision and direction of the front wheel.
New tube cradle frame with 28 mm tubes (instead of 25 mm). They increase overall stiffness and strength with significant advantages in terms of riding precision in extreme conditions
New brake discs with optimized profile for better performance in heavy usage conditions
New Brembo clutch pump, a step forward in delivering a good feeling from the engine to the rider. In fact, the increased linearity of operation, increases the feeling of smoothness, improves the feeling with gearbox and, therefore, the research for grip in extreme conditions
New design of front headlight and fender support
