Beta revealed its new 2013 450S motorcycle. The 2013 Beta 450RS was especially created for off-road riding and features a Beta-Built single cylinder, Titanium 4-valve, 4-stroke liquid cooled engine. The engine is brought to life by an electric starter with back up kick starter and its power is kept under control by a six speed transmission. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the 2013 model comes with a new clutch primary gear and springs for better engagement and clutch action. You also get a redesigned cylinder head including reinforced camshaft bridge, valve retainers, and updated cam chain tensioner.

The motorcycle is built on a redesigned frame especially developed to improve the overall stability and handling. As far as suspensions are concerned, the 2013 Beta 450RS features a new Sachs 48mm fork with TFX technology with adjustable compression and rebound, and a rear Sachs shock absorber with adjustable rebound and hi/low speed compression.
