Beta has revealed its 2020 Racing models  – the big sell: Kayaba forks

Bang on schedule, Beta has launched their RR Racing models for 2020. The Racing models feature competition-specific upgrades over the standard models, designed to keep the rider at the head of the pack.

The Racing family consists of seven models: 125, 250 & 300cc two-stroke and 350, 390, 430 and 480cc four-stroke. In other words only the 200 doesn’t get the RR treatment.

Biggest performance boost is likely to come from the 48mm Kayaba (KYB) AOS closed-cartridge forks. Kayaba forks are as good as No.1 in the off-road fork scene right now, and Beta say they’ve made a close collaboration to create a bespoke set-up for the Betas. This should be a Good Thing as the ZF by Sachs forks, while good, are not a quite full-race set-up as they come from the factory. The forks are clamped by a new black-anodized set of triple clamps.

The shock is an upgrade, too. Still ZF by Sachs, but it’s a 46mm unit with refined settings, probably to match the new forks.

On the two-strokes, to save weight, the automatic fuel-oil mixer is dispensed with so the rider now reverts to the time-honoured premixing of fuel.

The rest of the upgrades are as follows:

· Quick release front wheel pin

· Vertigo hand guards.

· Metzeler Six Days tyres

· Black Ergal footrests.

· Rear sprocket with anodized aluminum core and steel teeth.

· Red Ergal chain tensioner blocks.

· Racing seat with document pocket.

· Black anodized shift/brake levers.

· Transmission oil cap, engine oil cap and oil filter cap in red anodized aluminum.

· Racing graphics and red rim stickers.

· New battery charging system: more efficient and reliable (four-stroke only).

· New expansion chamber: improves performance across the entire power curve, especially at high revs where it boosts acceleration (125 2-stroke only).

 

The Racing models will be available from October.
