Paso Robles, CA

May 8, 2012 

The Beta race team finished off this weekend's events with two podiums and a strong 4th place finish. Cody Webb started  things off at the AMA Enduro Cross in Las Vegas with the third quickest time in the hot lap qualifiers. The California rider continued his run with a win in his nighttime qualifier and a 4th in the night's main event in the Pro class.

Webb explains, "I'm happy with my performance in the season opener. I came into the event with a nagging cold. I put that all behind me and focused at the task ahead of me. I had a top 3 qualifying position and came away with my heat race win for the first gate pick in the main. The dirt in Vegas was really poor and I got a terrible jump on the start. I made my way into third and felt great on the bike, but after the halfway point my sickness started dragging me down and I began making small mistakes I normally wouldn't have made. Excited to finish fourth at the first round and the bike was working awesome. Couldn't thank everyone at American Beta and Stillwell Performance for their support."

Many upgrades for 2012:

Beta Motorcycles now has a four-bike lineup of dirt bikes designed in-house for the 2012 model year. The RR models are Beta’s full-blown off-road bikes intended for racing and play riding. Beta also offers the RS models which are street-legal.

Big news for this release is the inclusion of the much-anticipated 350 RR.  Beta actually introduced this bike as a very late 2011 model, but only a handful ever reached customers. Now it’s here and ready for regular distribution alongside its four-stroke siblings. 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 ‘2-stroke feel’ yet still offers the traction and smooth power delivery of a 4 stroke.

The 350, 400, 450 and 498 (previously the 520) are all based off the same platform.  One of the big features is that it still uses a carburetor.  The engines get a redesigned cylinder head. The cam chain tensioner is changed to minimize engine noise, as are the valve retainers along with a reinforced camshaft bridge. The engine cam chain receives higher oil volume and the drain plug is revised to simplify oil changes. A stronger cam chain guide, updated counterbalance bearings and a new clutch primary gear and springs help beef up durability and improve clutch action.

All told the engine is just further refined, but the suspension gets a major overhaul. The Marzocchi fork is replaced with a 48mm Sachs fork. Using TFX technology, the Sachs front end was developed exclusively for Beta and it matches a Sachs shock. The fork gets SKF seals and wipers. The triple clamp has been changed to accept the new sticks.

The AJP hydraulic clutch is traded out for a Brembo unit. Braking is handled by a new set of contoured rotors and the spark arrestor restricts less exhaust flow. Beta has once again switched back to red bodywork with new front fender support and redesigned headlight assembly. The new color complements one of our favorite features, the red chassis. These are definitely some of the most exotic and beautiful dirt bikes available. Plastic frame guards do their job above the footpegs. The steel frame itself has large diameter on the lower tubes and extra gusseting for a more rigid chassis.
