Produced for the first time in 2011 the RR350 is the latest incarnation of the Beta 4 stroke enduro bikes.
When the concept for a smaller capacity bike to compliment the 400, 450 and 498 was conceived the engineers at Beta didn't set out to necessarily build a 350cc motor. They set out to build a motor that provided the optimal combination of ideal torque and power and rideability. When the design and testing process was completed the engine that gave all of this happened to also be 350cc in capacity. As the engineers were not restrained by ensuring the bore or stroke were the same as the other models the 88mm bore and 57.4mm stroke are both unique to the 350, and in fact the stroke is longer than the 56.2mm of the 400 engine.
The world wide acclaim that the 350 has received is testament to the fact that the engineers at Beta got it right. The double overhead cam 4 titanium valved engine delivers a unique combination of tractable torque and top end horsepower that makes the bike very easy to ride at all levels. This allows the rider to stay in control at all times and therefore it does not tire the rider as bigger engined bikes can – you ride the bike, the bike doesn’t ride you.
Perhaps the biggest revelation however is just how light and nimble the smaller engine makes the bike feel. Although the RR350 shares the same frame and suspension as its bigger brothers the lower reciprocating mass and engine characteristics makes the bike feel much lighter. This combined with the bikes very low center of gravity and wide rider stance makes the 350 a single track weapon.
The RR350’s usable power and nimble handling characteristics mean that you can ride the RR350 better and faster for longer.
