Beta announce details of their 2016 RR Racing models due for launch this November.
Essentially Beta’s answer to KTM’s Six Days model, the RR Racing spec features more race ready parts and upgrades to that of their standard 2016 RR machinery released earlier this year.
Notable additions are the absence of the oil injection system for two strokes and the introduction of a new 48mm Sachs front fork.
RR Race editions will be available in 250/300 2T and 350/430/480 4T engine sizes.
A new Sachs fork with a closed cartridge is the result of a long collaboration between Beta and Sachs. Several tests, including on-track data acquisition, computer simulations and laboratory tests have allowed this top performance fork to be developed.
The large volume of the internal closed cartridge allows for consistent and stable action as operating temperatures and conditions change. This, along with the fork spring provides stable front end feel without the side effects of an all-air fork.
All oil circuits have been carefully designed to eliminate any turbulence or cavitation and to provide more precise braking control during the rebound and compression stroke. The new fork is also fitted with low-friction fork seals to improve the smoothness while still providing excellent protection and sealing.
The rear shock has been revalved for racing situations to improve feel and stability under extreme conditions.
A control unit with dual mapping and a switch on the handlebar allows the rider to quickly change from a "soft" setting, which provides better traction on slippery terrain, to a "hard" setting, which allows for the best performance in optimum riding conditions.
Unlike the standard RR models, the "Racing" two strokes don’t feature the oil injection system and instead use the traditional method of mixing fuel. The decision to remove this component is to minimise weight..
