RR RACING 200 2T MY 2024
Is it possible to improve the frame, suspension and performance of a World Championship-winning motorcycle? It's not easy when the bikes in question are those of Steve Holcombe or Brad Freeman, but Betamotor's technicians like a challenge, and so two major innovations have been added to the Racing 2024 models, doubling the rideability, power and fun! Beta's flagship racing bike, the RR Racing 300 two-stroke, indeed features a new engine with dual spark plugs, with most of the other RR Racing range receiving a new frame (excluding the 125 and 200). But that's not all, because the 125 two-stroke is also receiving a completely redesigned engine. Rounding off the package are new graphics and high-level, race-ready components.
The RR Racing bikes represent the race-ready versions of the Enduro RR models and therefore differ from them with a series of modifications to the engine, suspension, frame and equipment, making them ideal for giving their best performance on the track. For Model Year 2024, the new features and innovations are undoubtedly high impact and consistent with the build philosophy of these models, offering everyone the ability to make the most of the available performance with minimal effort, so they can always give their best. Let's therefore take a look at all the new features and characteristics which set the models apart.
Engine - RR Racing 2Str 300
The engine of the multiple world championship-winning model of Brad Freeman is known in the offroad landscape for its torque and linear power delivery. Able to offer excellent progressive power throughout the range while providing top-end performance when needed. With the introduction of the new cylinder head with dual spark plug, these characteristics are further improved: the delivery is even more linear, and although the maximum power is increased, the vehicle's docility is clearly improved. This result has been achieved thanks to the two spark plugs, which provide numerous benefits:
Engine - RR Racing 2Str 125
As it has repeatedly demonstrated, Beta believes in the potential of young people, and the manufacturer has once again chosen to highlight this with the Racing Model Year 2024 bikes, offering a new engine for the small 125s. The purpose of this intervention was to increase the power delivered by the 125 two-stroke along the entire delivery curve, intensifying the maximum peak horsepower available. This result has been made possible by a totally new cylinder, with all-new porting, and a new exhaust valve system. The power valve control has been modified, as well as the spring and the valve opening regulation calibration, in order to make the engine more reactive, powerful and full-blooded, increasing the explosiveness of the absolute performance. The new 125cc engine therefore has a significantly greater range of use than in the past, with power gains at high speeds without losing low-end torque.
In terms of the suspension, adoption of Kayaba fork and single shock is standard equipment on all RR Race Edition models, while the main innovation involves the new frame:
The package of new features introduced on the RR Racing My 2024 is rounded off by the high-level equipment and the precise characteristics which set these models apart from the RR.
Traction Control - 4Str Range
The Traction Control, which can be disabled at any moment, is now a fundamental feature of the larger engine sizes and is therefore found on the Model Year 2024 too. Management of this system is via the usual button on the control panel between the steering tube and the fuel tank. As both the TC function and engine map selection function are controlled from this panel, it has two control buttons and two separate indicator LEDs for the two functions.
Oil mix – Two-Stroke Range
For the models of the RR Racing 2Str MY 2024 family, Beta has decided to stick with its choice of doing away with an automatic mixer, so that its Racing bikes continue to set benchmarks for lightness and, as a result, agility. The RR Racing two-stroke bikes must therefore be fueled with oil/petrol pre-mix – a characteristic accentuating the thoroughbred racing nature of this version.
These bikes can still be fitted with an aftermarket oil mixer, available as an accessory from the Beta Factory Parts catalogue.
