Beta Motorcycles Australia are passionate about a vast range of high quality Enduro and Trials motorcycles, made in Italy since 1905. MX Imports stock an extensive range of genuine spare parts and accessories.
The new Beta RR my 2019 arrives on the market with a broader range than in previous years. The Beta philosophy is to make sure each engine size has its own distinct personality so as to meet the specific needs of every enduro rider.
Of course, there's been no lack of upgrades across the existing range either, with improvements stemming from extensive race experience: in the last two years Beta has won two EnduroGP Manufacturers World Championships, an Enduro3 World Title and EnduroGP title with Steve Holcombe, an Enduro Junior World Title with Brad Freeman and two wins in the Assoluti d’Italia. Work has focused on both the engine and the chassis setup, with particular attention being paid to the suspension – front and rear – now fitted with top-drawer ZF Sachs components which are much more advanced than those used in the past.
New engine control unit (ECU): guarantees a more powerful spark at high revs, improving combustion and engine performance
BPV centrifugal unit contrast springs kit (on 300 cc only): supplied with the bike to extend the bike's scope for personalization according to the rider's needs. Thanks to springs with a spring rate lower than the standard ones, performance is better at mid-high revs, giving fuller, more decisive power delivery
New expansion chamber: ensures increased performance throughout the rev range
New throttle control: designed by Domino exclusively for Beta for improved engine response to minimal throttle twists, giving optimised traction even on the most difficult terrain
New mapping for all engine sizes combined with the excellent response of the new throttle control
Clutch actuator with wider diameter: gives the clutch lever a softer, more responsive feel
New ZF Sachs (ø 48 mm) fork with new adjustment system: allows positioning of the compression, rebound and spring preload adjusters on the upper fork cap; they can be reached while sitting on the bike and do not require tools. The fork also benefits from a new packing system which ensures greater stability and a slider with special anodizing that reduces friction and increases durability
New fork shoes (yoke): stiffer and lighter
New fork guards: designed together with the shoe to combine practicality and design.
Fully redesigned ZF Sachs shock: with more compact ø 46 mm piston, about 300g lighter. The new piston has been designed to ensure more stable operation as the oil temperature varies and increased sensitivity to enhance comfort and traction. The small upper base and reservoir have also been redesigned to rationalize the system and minimise weight and bulk. New spring is also lighter
New graphics and colours
Across the Range:
2019 Beta EVO 2T and 4T trials range
A combination of two- and four-strokes, and a special ‘Super Smooth’ version of the 300cc 2T
Beta’s 2019 range of EVO trials bikes will go on sale in Australia in December 2018: four two-strokes and a 300cc four-stroke.
The two-strokes will come in 125, 250 and 300cc configurations, as well as a ‘Super Smooth’ SS version of the 300 which has a “softer, more fun-oriented character than its more aggressive counterparts”.
Updates on the two-strokes include revisions to the exhaust port and timing (except for the 125), a new gear selector cam from the earlier Factory models, and a new CDI.
The 300 four-stroke has a new throttle and CDI.
All the 2-stroke versions - including the 300 SS - have the following new features, designed to give the bikes a more technically polished feel.
Engines (except the 125 cc) feature a cylinder with a new exhaust port geometry and new timing curves. Both of these developments improve low-rev engine control and stabilize the power delivery, providing exceptional, stock-setting performance.
Moreover, a new gear selector cam has been designed which was used in the earlier Factory models, and provides more positive shifting.
Another Factory model feature is the new CDI control unit, now with even better performance and optimized mapping for the new cylinder.
The 300 4T (4-stroke) engine has also been upgraded. One of the most important new features is a new throttle with a redesigned internal ramp that gives better low-rev power control. Like the 2-strokes, the 4-stroke inherits the new CDI control unit with new, dedicated mapping.
Much of the engineering focus has been directed at the chassis on the 2019 range, with the two and four-stroke models now featuring:
• A new shock absorber geometry;
• A new shock absorber piston;
• New fork oil;
• A wider adjustment range on chain tensioner;
• A rear brake caliper with an ‘anti-vibration’ system; and
• New graphics and colours.
