2010 Beta 400 RR Review
One problem area for the bike was that the rear wheel became squirrely in hard-packed turns, and the bike wouldn't stay planted.
Best known for their trial bikes, Beta Motors has separated themselves from KTM and have produced some noteworthy enduro machines, like the Beta 400 RR.
The steering damper on the Beta 400 allows the bike to do well in tight, technical terrain where speed is not of prime importance.
Despite having great bottoming resistance in the fork and shock, the 400 RR is definitely not a motocrosser when it comes to jumps.
While preparing for the Glen Helen 12 Hour race it was difficult to determine a comfortable front-end feel, and the bike's front fork could definitely use improvement.
The 400 was much more comfortable in a woods setting where technical terrain allowed the bike to shine.
While not as powerful as the 450, the 400 RR still has great acceleration with awesome top-end.
The Beta 400 RR also did well in a two-hour scramble event where its compact size allowed it to master motocross sections.
The 2010 Beta 400 RR is a solid design that offers surprising performance from a non-conventional brand.
