The new 2018 Beta RR-S Dual Sport models have been updated significantly to continue the reputation as being the most rideable motorcycles on the market. Beginning in 2017, the new RR-S line combined the performance of the 4 stroke off road RR model with the street license plate of the RS to form a dual sport model that is capable of everything from a casual cow trail ride to a competitive Hare Scramble or Enduro. The RR-S full size range continues their reputation of offering the most "Rideability" with four different displacements to cater to all riders including 350, 390, 430, and 500cc.
A whopping 8.7 lbs. has been reduced from all four models for 2018. Along with this weight savings, a new clutch system has been developed for smoother operation and less drag. A new slimmer clutch cover has been added to compliment the new clutch.
A new shifting star wheel and detent system has been added to eliminate any mis-shifts while offering a smoother transition between gears. The electric start system has been improved to the extent that a back up starter (and the weight that goes with it) is no longer needed. The Beta engineer's however left the engine cases alone for those who wish to purchase the back up kick start system as an option.
The RR-S models also receive many chassis updates to improve handling including a new frame with more rigidity, new front fork slider to further reduce friction, new rear shock settings, and new turn signals that are more durable. The thermostat design has also been updated for more durability as well.
All these updates are finished off with new graphics. Prices are the same as 2017 with no increase!
