Filed under Features, News

American Beta announced the release of a new mid-year 2012 450 RR Cross Country model that has been developed for the demands of a MX or WORCS/Hare Scramble racer. There are many refinements and improvements compared to the RR Enduro models, particularly on the frame. Only available in 450cc version with electric starter, a light kit to turn the bike into the Enduro version will be available to allow for more usage in off-road events.

All bikes come with an electric start and kick start removal kit so racers can choose to remove a starting system of their choice to save weight if desired.

The following items are included on the 450 RR Cross Country:

-48mm Marzocchi closed cartridge fork with MX-inspired spring rates.
-Sachs “Factory” rear shock with larger reservoir and 7mm more rear wheel travel.
-New reinforced frame providing a more rigid feel while also saving weight.
-19-inch rear wheel with MX-based tires.
-MX front number plate.
-Non-O-ring chain for less weight.
-Removal of all non-essential off-road components including the meter as well as a simplified electrical system.
-AC generator for quicker throttle response and a quicker-revving motor.
-Accessory light kit will be available as an option.

The MSRP is $8,999. Models can be ordered directly from any authorized Beta motorcycle dealer. First shipments will arrive the second week in June.
