2015 Beta 500 RS
Beta has seriously updated the RS line for 2015, with new slightly smaller displacement motors that put out the same power as the larger (and heavier) engines they replace.
Inside, there are lighter pistons, more-compact connecting rods, lighter crankshafts, and torque-boosting crankshaft profiles.
Of great interest for dual sport riders is the standard Trail Tech Voyager GPS unit that displays speed, altitude, temperature, maps, and trail systems.
The RS is also available in 390 and 430 versions, and all use Michelin DOT-approved tires that are 90-percent dirt and 10-percent street.
