Beta Adds Traction Control & Other Updates To 2023 Dual Sport Bikes

First look at Beta's 2023 RR-S range featuring updated suspension, TC and more.

Published on 07.18.2022

Beta has announced a host of updates for their 2023 race-bred street-legal enduros. The most significant feature in the new RR-S range is the introduction of traction control, a first for Beta’s dual sport models. Other changes include an improved front fork with updated internals, revised tank shrouds and more. 

2023 Beta RR-S dual sport models updated

Available in four engine sizes including 350, 390, 430, or 500, all RR-S models are equipped with the popular Trail Tech Voyager GPS. This meter package has more than 40 functions including a full GPS with downloadable trail maps, altitude readings, engine temp, outside temp, trip meter, hour meter, and many more functions. In addition, a rear suspension linkage is standard along with a hydraulic clutch, electric start and brakes with wave rotors. Beta also offers more than 500 accessories so you can customize the bike to better suit your riding needs.

Completing the look is a new graphics package featuring an all-red color scheme. Check out the details on the 2023 updates below:

New ECU mapping with Traction control

Traction control made its debut last year in the Racing range and is now being offered for the dual sport models. The function is selectable by the rider from a button on top of the fuel tank and can be disengaged at any time. Since the traction control is calibrated for each of the two riding maps (dry and wet), this effectively gives the rider a choice of 4 different electronic control configurations.

Front fork

In the quest for an even sharper rider feedback, Beta Italy’s engineers have revised the internals of the front fork – a ZF component, as on the previous generation. The geometry of the oil passages around the fork piston has been modified to eliminate any air in the system to ensure impeccably smooth fork action throughout the entire travel. This update broadens the effect of the performance as the rider changes the external compression and rebound settings resulting in improved rider comfort. Therefore, the bike remains composed and controllable even in rough terrain conditions. The goal is to create a front wheel feel for the rider that provides a greater amount of confidence.

Radiator shrouds

The new shrouds are narrower than before to give the rider more freedom of movement, especially when cornering. Designed to be sleek and also contribute to the revised and simple new look of the models.

Suspension package

The RR-S comes with the same suspension package as the standard RR 2- and 4- stroke models. The ZF fork, with its improvements listed above, has proven to be a class leader for all off-road riders. The Sachs/ZF rear shock is perfectly matched with the front fork to provide a perfectly balanced ride. 

Rear suspension linkage

Beta RR-S models have a linkage system in the rear suspension for a more plush trail ride feel with the ability to react to sharp square-edged hits as well.

Engines

Available in four different sizes, 350, 390., 430, and 500. These engines are tuned the same as the off-road RR models and offer riders a choice of a wet or dry riding map for different riding conditions.

Graphics

All models now feature a new all-red color scheme. The style of the graphics is more minimalist than before, with bold, clearly defined forms and purer, more modern lines which link the new shrouds seamlessly to the other components.

For 2023, the whole range receives a $500 price bump. According to Beta, the new RR-S models will begin hitting showroom floors this November. See MSRP of each model below:
