Beta RR Racing 2022 model updates
Beta’s updated 2022 RR Racing lineup will arrive in Australia in January 2022, with a host of updates revealed ensuring a better-than-ever package, ready to race in the toughest conditions and most competitive events.
For the MY 2022 versions, Beta engineers at Rignano sull’Arno worked on developing improvements for both the suspension and the powertrain, retaining all the styling and functional details you would expect from a focused version. on the run, to save weight and make these bikes even more convenient to use in real racing conditions.
As with the standard version, the racing range is also made up of eight different models, each with its own character and strengths, and performing a series of racing parts shared across the range, such as hand guards and components. in red alloy, as well as certain specific elements for each model.
All models will now be equipped with the quick-release front axle – recognizable by the red anodized alloy release lever, this component is crucial in saving precious seconds in the race when you need to change a tire.
Red Vertigo hand guards are also fitted, the sturdy structure of these parts combined with eye-catching “in-mold” graphics, while the bikes in the Racing range are fitted with the same Metzeler tires used by the official team riders of the EnduroGP championship.
The machined alloy footrests ensure that the racing style footpegs provide a large contact area made of black machined alloy and with steel pins. The rear sprocket is also an anodized aluminum core with steel toothing by ZF, ensuring performance, lightness and strength.
There is also a dedicated blue racing seat with non-slip cover and document pocket for unparalleled grip, comfort and functionality, as well as a black anodized shifter and rear brake pedal, filler cap. gearbox oil, engine oil filler cap and red anodized aluminum oil filter cap and matching red anodized alloy chain tensioners. The racing graphics and red rim decals are also new.
Another common update is the Kayaba AOS 48mm closed cartridge fork, in which anodized internals minimize sliding friction, while adjustable compression and rebound damping allows every rider to find the perfect fit. . Betamotor engineers have revised the calibration of this component, mainly to improve comfort during the initial compression, when the shock of the terrain is transmitted to the rider.
More specific updates are also being made, such as on the models of the RR Racing 2Str MY 2022 family, where Beta has decided to stick to its choice to do away with an automatic mixer. RR Racing 2Str bikes must therefore be supplied with an oil / petrol premix. These bikes can always be fitted with a spare oil mixer, available as an accessory in the Beta Factory Parts catalog.
Two-stroke engine updates on RR 300 and RR 200
Unlike previous Racing editions, which did not receive any substantial engine modification compared to the standard model, for the MY 2022 range, on two of the 2-stroke models – namely the RR 300 and the RR 200 – the powertrains were improved to add a pinch of spice to the recipe.
On the RR 300 2Str, the cylinder of the 300 cc engine, which has already been radically updated for the MY 2022 version in its standard version, now includes a cylinder with a modified geometry of the exhaust and transfer ports and a new cylinder head, associated with a different setting. 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 handle the increased engine power output, Beta engineers improved the power valve, modifying the internal spring and tuning system to ensure power delivered and easily accessible across the entire rev range. The spark advance was also changed as a result of these engine upgrades.
On the RR 200 2Str Beta, engineers modified the cylinder head and replaced the two power valves used in the standard engine with a single, more rigid component. These improvements help increase horsepower at medium to high engine speeds.
Traction control added to RR Racing 4Str
The most important novelty of the 4Str range is the introduction of traction control – a first on an RR bike. Advances in motorcycle technology are giving shape to new components and systems that can be used even on enduro bikes, which allow the rider to use the motorcycle more efficiently in all possible conditions.
Make the performance of its models, and of its larger displacement bikes in particular, always more accessible to the cyclist in any situation. In addition to the user-selectable electronic engine management cards, Beta has now introduced a new traction control function.
The TC function can be activated at any time from a new button on the control panel in the usual position between the steering tube and the fuel tank. As the TC function and the motor board selection function are controlled from this panel, it now has two control buttons and two separate LED indicators for the two functions.
