2016 Beta 430 RR / 480 RR

2016 Beta 430 RR / 480 RR

Beta has quite the industrious lot in its engineering department. The 2015 430/480 models saw a whole plethora of improvements, to include completely reworked engines and heads, lighter weight and better handling. In the competitive world of trail and race bikes, if you lift, you lose, and Beta shows no sign of easing up anytime soon. The 2016 430 RR and 480 RR roll out with a host of new improvements to include fuel injection, a lighter chassis and more.

2016 Beta 430 RS

2016 Beta 430 RS

Family-owned Beta treats us to another year of dualsport bikes sure to please the dirt riders among us. Making two-wheeled transportation since 1904, Beta motorized their bicycles in the late 1940s and focused heavily on offroad riding starting in the 1970s. The focus of what the folks at Beta call "Beta Rideability" and attention to customer needs keeps them moving forward.

New for the 430 RS in 2016, we find softer foam in the seat, a larger battery for better hot starting, a new front brake hose that allows a better view of the GPS unit, and — here’s the biggie — fuel injection. In 2015 we saw the last of the Keihin FCR-39 mm carburetor, so if you’re one of those anti-FI folks, you’d better grab a 2015 Beta 430 RS while they last.
