2016 Beta Enduro models are on route! 

Big news for the coming year is the introduction of an electronic oil injection system on their two-stroke models while all four strokes benefit from fuel injection.

RR 2-Stroke 

he big news for the 2016 RR Enduro 2 stroke models is the introduction of Beta's electronic oil injection system on both the 250 and 300 RR models.

 

This system was introduced in 2015 on the Xtrainer model and has proven to be a huge success among Beta owners. This new feature ensures a perfect fuel-oil mix under any conditions and engine speed while saving riders from having to pre-mix.This new system also reduces 50% of the smoke from the exhaust compared to a traditional pre-mixed two stroke as the system is managed by an ECU with integrated mix and engine control which is able to measure the oil based on the engine's revs and engine load measured by the TPS (Throttle Position System).

Beta's 2-stroke RR models get an electronic oil injection system

Other 2-stroke RR updates include:

The main frame has a stronger top shock mount to improve strength of the frame while also improving the feel of the chassis under the most demanding situations.

The air filter box has been improved in terms of its water drainage. Also new are the air box cover fasteners that provide a more secure and dependable system.

The front fork has been improved by increasing the size of the cartridge bleed hole to allow better oil flow during bottoming. Other changes include a longer spring guide to provide smoother action and lastly a more durable top-out spring has been installed. 

The odometer instrumentation is updated and integrates the lights indicating low oil level and separate oil injection system diagnostics.

The graphics retain the classic and distinctive Beta colours characterizing the Italian heritage. Even more stunning are the front fork tubes now with gold anodizing to match the rear shock reservoir.

 

2-Stroke RR models will be available at dealerships in August

 

RR 4 Stroke

The main innovation of the 2016 4-stroke RR Enduro range is the introduction of the electronic fuel injection system on all 4-stroke models.

 

Fuel injection was already introduced on the 2015 350 RR model and has proved to be much more efficient than a carburettor, thanks to its great reliability and simple engine management, its extraordinary fuel delivery has received positive feedback from casual riders and racers alike.

 

Beta's engineers have worked directly with Synerject to provide an EFI system that has proven to be tried and true. With its 42mm-diameter throttle body, the system ensures precise control of the fuel delivery under any condition, the air-fuel mixture is optimized at any altitude thanks to temperature and pressure gauges.

 

Riders of all levels will enjoy spontaneous and linear engine response, thanks to the adoption of a stepper motor mounted on the throttle body, a precise minimum engine speed is guaranteed and engine braking is significantly reduced. This insures a smooth and predictable power delivery that is synonymous with Beta.  

 

 

 

Other 4-stroke RR updates include:

 

The new intake ports on the 430 and 480 models have optimized flow for improved torque and power.

The exhaust cam of the 480 has a new profile that provides a more linear power delivery.

The rev limiter of the 350 has been brought up to 13,000 rpm (as opposed to the previous 12,500 rpm) for greater performance and provide more over-rev.

The piston of the 350 and 390 models have new DLC-treated oil rings to reduce friction and oil consumption.

The oil pressure valve has a new spring that offers greater stability at high temperatures, reducing the pressure variations in the system.

The shift detent lever has a new aluminium roller that reduces the friction during gear changes and reduces wear on the gear starwheel, which improves shifting action.

The new tri-phase 18 pole electric ignition supplies power of 200 watts ensuring quicker battery charging. New diodes also reduce voltage losses further improving the charging system.

New thermostat housing with four screws to improve durability.

Many of the engine's screws are now in 7075 aluminium rather than steel for a greater weight savings.

Many other new features have been introduced to further enhance handling as well as ease of maintenance.

The skid plate is now made of plastic similar to the 2 stroke models. Made from the latest-generation polyamide that combines great impact resistance with extreme lightness, as well as offering greater protection against mud that can get in between the engine and the plate.

The frame derives directly from the 2015 Racing model, the two main connection tubes to the steering head increased and created with a rectangular section in a special 41xx steel. This improved frame is a direct result of comprehensive analysis and research and has allowed for the rigidity of the various axes to be optimized for greater stability and riding precision.

The new handlebar is lower providing improved weight transfer on corner entry.

The air filter box sees improved water drainage. Also new are the air box cover fasteners that provide a more secure and dependable system.

The front fork has been improved by increasing the size of the cartridge bleed hole to allow better oil flow during bottoming. Other changes include a longer spring guide to provide smoother action and lastly a more durable top-out spring has been installed.

The odometer instrumentation has been updated and integrates lights indicating low fuel level and electronic fuel injection system diagnostics.

The fuel tank is now translucent – from the 2015 Race Editions – allowing for a clear view of the fuel level in any situation. 

The graphics retain the classic and distinctive Beta colours characterizing the Italian heritage. Even more stunning are the front fork tubes now with gold anodizing to match the rear shock reservoir.

4 stroke RR models will be available at dealerships in October 

 

 

Round 1 of the Irish national Enduro championship was held at the weekend and great success for the Nmc Beta riders David McNulty & Sheamie Hayes. Both riders competing in the competitive Experts class onboard 250rr machines Dave finished 2nd place and Sheamie came in 4th

NMC riders will be back out in force for the next round of the Irish enduro championship in Glendalough. Check out Torcireland.ie for more details. 

Giacomo Redondi on the top of the Junior class

 

 

Last weekend were disputed the first two rounds of the Assoluti d'Italia Enduro Chanpionship 2015 and for the occasion the Beta Factory Team was present in Lignano Sabbiarono dropping its four aces Johnny Aubert, Luis Correia, Giacomo Redondi and Gregory Aranda, the French rider who has been riding for many years in the World Motocross Championship and the European Supercross.
Unusual season opening  in Lignano Sabbiadoro where the orgnaization did not organized the classic enduro race but a revised version, and for this somewhat atypical. Only two special test, a short transfer, five laps on the opening day and three on SundayOn Saturday the riders took on a Supertest, halfway between a motocross race and the classic prologue that takes place in the World Enduro Championship.
The Beta Factory Team at the end of the weekend celebrated the double victory of Giacomo Redondi in the Junior class. A great result for the Italian rider on the Beta RR 300.
The race of Johnny Aubert has not been very lucky. On the opening day he had to retire because his Beta had intaken sand inside the engine and on Sunday did not go beyond the seventh place overall. Luis Correia has shown on the sand of Lignano a great riding style and speed, finishing in sixth place overall in the second day. The new acquisition of Beta Factory Team Gregory Aranda did a prudent race and aimed not to make mistakes.
 
Johnny Aubert: "The start was not the best, a retreat and a seventh place overall. Even last year we started badly but then the season has gone above all expectations and I hope to replicate. The work done during the winter with the whole team was great and definitely we'll make a better result the next round of the championship. "
 
Luis Correia: "A very hard weekend with many mistakes. I am satisfied for my speed and the feeling with the bike. We are on the right track and the results will come soon. "
 
Giacomo Redondi: "Two wins in the Junior class and good results in the overall classification. I am fully satisfied and now we have to replicate the steps that will take place on the Isola d' Elba and Spoleto. "
 
Gregory Aranda: "During this weekend I tried not to make mistakes and not to force the pace. The race in Lignano Sabbiadoro has been set as training and to sharpen the feeling with the bike. "

The all new XTrainer is starting to hit the shop floors in the next few weeks and we here at Nmcbikes are excited!
