2016 Beta 480 RR
MSRP $9,499

The 2016 Beta 480 RR model has been given not only a translucent fuel tank to see the amount of fuel left but Beta has also decided to add a “low fuel” light, it also has been given a more rigid main frame, updated air box allowing for improve water drain and new graphics and color scheme. Electronic Fuel Injection was a big addition along with a new intake port shape for enhanced low end power, while the new camshaft enriches the power delivery.
