First Ride: 2014 RR Enduro Machines

Story By Booth • Photos by Cristiano And Marco Campelli

The official press introduction of the 2014 RR Enduro machines in Italy is now and Dirt Rider was lucky to travel there, check out the and spend some time the 250 RR, 300 RR, 350 RR, 450 RR and 498 RR. Cosmetically the 2014 RR models a lot more red and instantly the translucent and gas tanks on the two-strokes (2.5 for 2014) shows the smallish gas tank of 2013 is gone.

We are pleased to see an increase in gas capacity on a that desperately needed it. Beta didn’t go crazy a lot of changes there are some to improve handling and durability.

The fork on both the two-strokes and the received changes to the internal and valving, aimed at keeping the a bit higher in the …. The tolerance the piston and the inner cartridge was for less friction to improve the in both hard, square-edge and rocky conditions. The fork are .05mm larger, making a fit with the fork bushings and

Improvements to the top cap of the fork make it to service and easier to adjust the rebound components are now all within the The fork spring rate did not go up for any of the machines but a new 3mm bigger preload increases the amount of preload on the springs, working to hold the up slightly more in the …. The oil viscosity is increased for 2014 to with the internal changes.

The on both the two-strokes and four-strokes has a new hole diameter, allowing for a precise adjustment of the rebound The two-… shock spring increased from went 4.8 to 5.2 kg/mm while the 5.4 kg/mm spring stays the same on the

Beta didn’t make a changes to the frames on the two- and but they worked carefully on the and shapes of the reinforcement plates and to increase durability.

The only power plant to receive any was the 350.  A new profile to the piston and lubrication holes have are to reliability and reduce oil consumption. The underwent heat treatment for increased reliability and the shift is revised for easier shifting.

To the transition from bottom to mid and bottom end torque, Beta the power valve on the 250 RR to seal up during the closing phase.

A improvement to the two-… 250 RR and the 300 RR comes in the way of the gas They are now transparent and the capacity is now up a gallon to 2.5 gallons total. An front fender with rigidity is also wider at the and front area. It looks identical to a KTM fender. The seat is now two-tone and the seat base is rigid and reinforced for a solid fit on the

To keep the battery and CDI box in place has a new elastic band that things tight. The brake rotors received a new heat for a greater hardness, increasing and performance. The front brakes are and if you aren’t careful the front end tuck going into

With a couple mile grass track winding the hills and through the Italian at my disposal, I spent a day riding all the Betas. Always loving a two-… I went back and on the 250 RR and 300 RR, trying my hardest to pick one I over the other and honestly it was they both are great. You think just 50cc make a difference to the way a bike but the difference between the two machines is

The 250 RR is smooth, flickable and very while the 300 vibrates a little revs slower and doesn’t nearly the amount of clutch exiting corners. The 300 RR feels everyway compared to the 250 RR. You feel lazy going from the 250 RR to the 300 RR you get on a four-… that doesn’t any clutch work to negotiate a grass track corner, life seems super

With a stiffer rear and preload spacers in the fork the ride stiffer and higher up in the than last year. On our short woods section scattered rocks the 250 RR and the 300 RR deflected and settling down way more the four-strokes.

We will have to do on familiar trails back but I hope Beta didn’t go too with the suspension because the RR two-strokes worked well in terrain but were a little on high-speed terrain where the was missing good bottoming Those who wanted stiffer on the two-strokes will be pleased, who loved the 2013 settings probably find it a little

Out of all the bikes I left Italy loving the 450 RR. It was awesome on the grass and stayed glued to the ground the rocks and roots. Yes, the are still carbureted but the 450 RR ran amazing, usable power at any rpm. The feels balanced and the suspension up the harsh hits and stayed the direction I wanted much than the two-strokes.

Surprisingly the 498 RR was a to ride and didn’t feel heavier than the 450 RR while huge torquey power. are all great machines for 2014, but if I had to a least favorite it was the 350 RR. If I’m going to a four-… in that weight I want ample power at the hand. While the 350 has decent the 450 RR is just simply an awesome that can be ridden anyway you while the 350 is lacking in comparison.

Beta continues to focus on the world and their bikes are to that. Look for a lot more of Beta’s off-road bikes soon. Ciao!
