Beta offers three 430cc four-stroke models in its vast lineup of motorcycles. There’s the 430 RR enduro, 430 RR-S dual sport, and 430 RR Race Edition designed for off-road competition. We recently took delivery of the 430 RR, which falls into the casual enduro and off-road category. It’s designed for what the Italian manufacturer calls “Rideability” with a smooth power delivery. The 430 RR has many of the same features as the 430 RR Race Edition, but with a $500 lower retail price of $10,699. Let’s dive into some of the features and specifications of this model, which was reintroduced to Beta’s lineup for 2023. The 2023 Beta 430 RR is all red with narrower radiator shrouds. Mark Kariya The fuel-injected liquid-cooled DOHC 431cc four-stroke engine is designed to offer a smoother, less intimidating power than other big-bore thumpers for a more fun riding experience. There’s also a kickstart boss for those who prefer a kick backup, which is available for purchase through Beta. Mark Kariya The most noticeable difference between the 430 RR and the 430 RR Race Edition is the front suspension. The 430 RR is equipped with a ZF Sachs 48mm open-cartridge coil-spring fork that features tool-free adjusters and external spring preload adjustability. Mark Kariya New radiator shrouds create an incredibly narrow cockpit. It’s hard to believe this bike has a 2.4-gallon fuel tank. Mark Kariya The electronics package offers dual maps and on-demand traction control (TC). Mark Kariya There’s separate oil compartments for the engine and transmission. Engine oil is filled from the left side with a sight glass to check its level with the engine running. The transmission holds 750cc and is filled on the right side. Mark Kariya The 430 RR comes with a low- and high-beam headlight lighting kit and an operational tail/brake light. Other electrical switches are included, and it’s prewired should you decide to convert your 430 RR to be street-legal. This is a very excellent value considering the 430 RR is $1,000 less than the 430 RR-S dual sport model. Mark Kariya The clutch features a diaphragm spring and is hydraulically actuated. Gearbox is a wide-ratio six-speed. Mark Kariya Beta specs Nissin brakes and wave rotors with a 260mm front and 240mm rear. Mark Kariya Naturally, this enduro comes with a D.I.D O-ring chain and very off-road-worthy 13/48 gearing. Mark Kariya Push-button seat removal and a quick-change air filter cover are convenient features. Mark Kariya 2023 Beta 430 RR Specifications
