2012 Beta 350 RS

Posted on by 0

The American Beta team has released three new models namely the 350, 450, and 520. The Beta 350 RS was especially developed to deal great with dirty race tracks but also with casual riding.

The motorcycle sports a single cylinder, 4‐valve, 4‐stroke liquid cooled engine with a displacement of 349 cc. The engine is mated on a six speed transmission and features electric start with back up kick starter.

When it has to deal with difficult terrains the BETA 350 RS is helped by its rugged suspensions which are able to keep the wheels in check and to offer a proper ride quality. The front wheel features a 45mm Marzocchi fork with compression and rebound damping adjustments for Dual Sport use while the rear wheels received an adjustable Sachs shock absorber.

For the Beta 350 RS is available the Beta BYOB (Build Your Own Beta) program. This program allows you to build your own Beta online by adding several suspension settings or various accessories.
