2012 Beta RR Factory 498


The 2012 BETA RR Factory motorcycles really are something special. These limited editions are hand built in the Tuscany hills of Florence Italy and are inspired by the BETA factory off road team. Offered in 350, 400, 450, and the big brother 498cc for 2012 you can ride with the same throttle and power as the best of the best. These motorcycles are nearly identical to their counterparts that don’t have the factory label, with varying changes along the line. However, these differences are not readily published, so you’ll need to go to a local dealer for more information on the specifications.

The 2012 BETA RR line of models contains a set of finely tuned Italian machines, sure to fit any rider’s needs. Beginning with the 350, BETA feels this is the ultimate single-track motorcycle as its ability to change direction is unmatched while still offering enough torque and power for both play riders and racers. The 350 provides a two-stroke feel yet still offers the traction and smooth power delivery of a four stroke. Returning for 2012 are the proven 400, 450, and 498 RR models that have helped put BETA on the off road map.
