Beta isn’t as popular as other motorcycle manufacturers, but the company is starting to recover the lost terrain pretty fast and continues to upgrade its models with every year that passes.
Their new generation 2013 498RR models are fitted with a long list of fresh technologies and you’ll especially like the new 298 cc engine that is much lighter efficient and stronger then the previous units.
The motorcycle’s backbone is a totally new frame reinforced at the points of greatest stress and lightened where possible which plays a major role in the handling and maneuvering departments.
The ride quality is assured by 48mm Sachs front forks and rear shock absorbers with improved settings.
Thanks to the comprehensive list of upgrades, the new Beta 498RR is among the lightest motorcycles in its class and delivers a great riding position and good overall performances.
