2018 Beta 125 RR goes on sale

Beta 2018 enduro line-up is complete with RR 125 two-stroke available in dealers. 

Since the 2018 RR model launch in the middle of 2017 we’ve been waiting to see the baby RR out and about. Beta’s sweetest of RR models are finally off the production line. 

We tested the completely new RR 125 in Enduro illustrated #23 back in July 2017.

It adds to Beta’s 2-stroke range which now offers choices in the European small capacity market from the 50 cc for fourteen-year-olds. 

It also stands on the lower rung of the RR Enduro model range joining the 250/300cc 2T models as well as the 4-stroke 350/390/430/480cc bikes.

Beta’s aim for the RR 125 2T MY 2018 is competition and is targeted at the Junior and Youth categories of the World Enduro Championship and the Cadets, Junior and E1 categories of various National Enduro Championships, as well as all the categories reserved for small 2-strokes.

This smallest engine in the Beta Enduro range was a complete new engine designed to feel better to ride, no matter what your level and improve the handling of the Beta chassis through distribution of weight and the fluid dynamics of the engine. 

The 2018 chassis is largely the same as found on the bigger models in the RR enduro range but with changes to suit the smaller engine.

The main chrome molybdenum, double cradle split frame is redesigned for the physically small 125cc engine. 

Beta says they have revised its principal dimensions to optimise positioning of the engine. This helps improve handling, stability and ride-ability of this already low weight bike plus reduce vibrations from the engine.
