The Beta RR Enduro project continues to grow and improve, boosted by successes on the racetracks and by the great commitment of the technical and R&D departments in Rignano sull’Arno. The RR Enduro 2015 models are lighter and more agile, and their great power and torque are more easily controlled. They are the ideal bikes for enthusiasts and the winning solution for victory-hungry racers.

The RR Enduro 2T 2015 range has also evolved, the 250 version featuring certain technical innovations and the 300 version featuring special parts from the Racing MY14 model. The objective here is to increase the smoothness and regularity of power delivery, seeking and obtaining an even more direct and progressive response of the engine to the throttle, making engine power fully available.

2015 Beta RR 2T 250 Features and Benefits:


The RR 2T MY 2015 engines have undergone some changes aimed at ever-better control of engine management, without reducing performance in terms of lightness and power typical of 2T engines with high specific power.

the engine’s exhaust-flap-adjustment system has been modified, increasing the number of adjustment springs from 1 (RR 2T MY’14 version) to 2 in parallel, as in the 300cc engine. This change significantly improves engine output, optimising the opening of the exhaust flap at every stage of operation.


A new silencer, for this version with an internal pipe of a smaller diameter compared with the 300 version, improves the precision of response to the throttle and increases peak revs.


The Sachs USD ? 48 fork developed in close collaboration between Beta and Sachs features numerous important innovations: a new design of the extension piston with “three slot” geometry in order to improve the oil flow and make it more direct so as to absorb violent shocks more progressively. To improve the general smoothness of the fork, particularly on the initial breakaway friction, a spring-support release system has been included to eliminate rotational friction, the design of the sleeves and sheaths has been modified increasing the distance between the slider DUs, also reducing their height. Finally, the spring profile has been redesigned to guarantee better insertion inside the sleeve. All the connections have also been adjusted, increasing precision.

Shock absorber

A new internal piston with oil passages that have been redesigned to improve its flow and reduce overheating during operation. This means that the shock absorber offers more stable performance, precise and reliable even under very intense use.

Handlebar pads

Ideal for the most extreme off-road riding and compliant with the standards required by FIM regulations.


The padding has been redesigned with softer foam.


The renewed look streamlines and adds character, maintaining the classical Beta colours.

“The new 250 RR is reportedly the best two stroke engine made to date with a new up rated design power valve system (Similar to the 300 model) that produces some of the best Torque, smooth delivery and top power of any previous 2t Enduro Bike! Quite a statement but the proof is in the pudding and will be confirmed when the various testers from the worlds press goes to print over the coming months ahead. Fitted standard with an FMF Power pipe and a new smaller diameter core FMF silencer to improve higher RPM for those brave enough to hold it wide open. ! The Beat has become well reknowned for its reliable out of harms way electric starter situated in a under engine design. So good to have a bike where It works every time too” ----- Edmondson-Racing

“The main objectives during development were to make the bike lighter, easier to control, and improve overall handling making it more enjoyable and easier to ride and, above all, more effective. The engine’s center cases and internal components have been made lighter and redesigned to reduce the rotating mass, and the engine sizes have been reduced to make handling easier and minimize weight. Compared with the larger capacity of the previous model, the absolute power and torque figures remain unchanged thanks to a new camshaft profile and a new exhaust system; in addition, a better distribution of the torque curve has been obtained to get more out of the engines. With these new engines, the engineering team promises continued "Beta Magic" power delivery.” Total Motorcycle
