2012 Beta Motorcycle
Some dual-sport bikes are designed with a clear emphasis for street riding and light trail duty. The 2012 Beta 450 RS means serious business off-road.
Capable of entering a competitive enduro event, the 450 RS has inverted 45mm Marzocchi forks with compression and rebound damping adjustments.
In the back is a Sachs shock with separate high- speed and low-speed compression damping adjustments, in addition to adjustable rebound. The electric-start, short-stroke Beta motor is also available in 350 and 520 versions.
