RR RACING 300 2T MY 2022

Racing as never before

Autumn is here, and while everyone else wraps themselves up cosily at home, the most hardcore enduro enthusiasts will be getting out there to put the new RR Racing MY 2022 range through its paces!

The EnduroGp championship is drawing to a close and Beta's riders are more focused than ever on getting the best out of their bikes. So, what better time than this for Beta to give the public a chance to own race-ready versions of the RR 2Str-4Str range launched in June?

In keeping with Betamotor traditions, the bikes of the RR Racing range come complete with everything needed to transform the Enduro models of the Tuscan brand into machines ready to race in the toughest conditions and the most competitive events.

For the MY 2022 version, the engineers at Rignano sull’Arno have worked on developing upgrades for both the suspension and the powertrain, while keeping all the styling and functional details you'd expect from a race-focused version from Beta, to save weight and make these bikes even more practical to use in real-world race conditions.

As the standard version, the racing range is also made up of 8 different models, each with its own unique character and strengths.

300cc

Made for those who appreciate a big engine with significant torque at any speed. Suitable for those who favor long gearing.

In keeping with the pure racing traditions of Beta, each bike in the RR Racing MY 2022 differs from the respective standard bike in a number of different aspects: with a series of racing parts shared across the range, such as handguards and components in red ergal alloy, and certain specific elements for each model. Let's take a look at these in detail.

Engine - RR Racing 2Str 300

Unlike past Racing editions, which received no substantial modifications to the engine over the standard model, for the MY 2022 range, on two of the 2-stroke models - namely the RR 300 and RR 200 - the powerplants have been upgraded to add a pinch of spice to the recipe.

  • RR 300 2Str: the cylinder block of the 300 cc engine, which has already been radically updated for the MY 2022 version in its standard guise, now features a cylinder with modified exhaust and transfer port geometry and a new head, combined with a differently calibrated power valve. The new head, with both modified flow geometry and combustion chamber geometry, produces a higher compression ratio, resulting in a substantial increase in performance. To better manage the increased power output of the engine, Beta's engineers have upgraded the power valve, changing the internal spring and adjustment system to ensure full-bodied and readily accessible power delivery throughout the rev range. The ignition advance has also been modified as a consequence of these upgrades to the engine.

Suspension

  • Kayaba AOS forks with closed ø 48 mm cartridge: these new KYB spring forks feature a closedcartridge
    design and are renowned worldwide for being top-of-the-range. Close collaboration
    between Beta and Kayaba has created a bespoke product which features a new fork shoe
    design and a unique calibration reserved for the RR models. Also, the presence of anodized
    internal components minimizes sliding friction, whilst the customary compression and release
    adjusters allow easy attainment of optimum settings at all times. Therefore, Kayaba forks
    ensure excellent operation under all usage conditions, being ultra-reliable, and easy to tune.
  • ZF ø 46 mm shock absorber with new calibration: this newly refined set-up lets riders make
    the absolute most of the new chassis.
  • Black anodized triple clamp.


Premix

you can't talk about suspension of these bikes without mentioning the closed cartridge fork by KYB, the leading brand in Enduro for years, whose products have once again been chosen for the MY 2022 models. This product has been continuously honed and improved through collaboration between Beta and Kayaba, giving shape to a highly specialised component that not only maximises the performance of RR Racing bikes, but also makes this performance even more accessible. Anodised internal parts minimise sliding friction, while adjustable compression and rebound damping let each rider find the perfect setting. Betamotor's engineers have, however, revised the calibration of this component, chiefly to improve comfort during initial compression, when shocks from the terrain are transmitted to the rider.

Racing components

  • Quick release front wheel pin: essential for saving precious seconds during a race, this device
    speeds up tire repairs.
  • Vertigo hand guards: solidity, eye-catching design and In-Mold graphics make this accessory
    indispensable for off-road riding.
  • Metzeler Six Days tires: for confident off-road riding. It's no coincidence that these tires are
    the most widely used in top-level Enduro competitions and by multiple world champion Steve
    Holcombe.
  • Black Ergal footrests: with a broad contact surface and steel pegs to ensure optimum grip
    under all conditions. A robust yet lightweight structure means these footrests also have a
    longer lifespan.
  • Rear sprocket with anodized aluminum core and steel teeth: a perfect combination of
    lightness and durability.
  • Red Ergal chain tensioner blocks.
  • Racing seat with document pocket.
  • Black anodized shift/brake levers.
  • Transmission oil cap, engine oil cap and oil filter cap in red anodized aluminum
  • Racing graphics and red rim stickers.
  • New expansion chamber: improves performance across the entire power curve, especially at
    high revs where it boosts acceleration (125 2-stroke only).
