TRRS One Raga Racing 300cc 2020 Review

We get behind the wheel of the new
TRRS One Raga Racing 2020
just a few days after its official presentation at the Milan Motor Show.

The “Raga Racing” model is the cornerstone of TRS Motorcycles; its best-selling and representative model. It should be remembered that below the range has grown with the “
One R
“, which brings its performance closer to the “RR” and distances itself from the “One basic”, whose reception in the market has been much more discreet. And above the “RR” we have the “Gold Series”, which is presented around the month of May and raises the level of the unit in question, especially at the level of components (three-way Reiger shock absorber, carbon filter box…).


For all these reasons, the “RR” is the perfect balance within the range. In 2020, the new red color of its frame stands out, which gains even more live compared to studio photos. It has a fluorescent touch that is complemented well by black stickers and plastic chassis protectors that it inherits from both the Gold and the One R.
Now this TRRS is more cheeky, more aesthetically racing. Gone is the sobriety of the initial model in 2016. Now we see color, anodized fork posts, red silicone cooling tubes, a Neken handlebar with more graphics and well-kept details that provide a plus of exclusivity.
However, the new RR hasn’t just dressed on the outside. Mechanically, it receives significant improvements to its clutch, with new materials and internal tolerances. The gearbox has also been revised and both the desmodronic and the selector star are now made of aluminium. And finally, new settings on its CDI to improve mechanical response throughout the rev range.


At Trialworld we know very well all TRS models in their different displacements. We remember perfectly how the first One 300cc 2016 was abrupt in the delivery of power from low revs, so we began to test with more priority the displacements of 250 and 280, which yield similar figures of final power, but offer a lower revs more elastic and docile that favors an intuitive riding, as well as less physically demanding.
When we got into this new TRRS One RR 300 2020, the surprise was huge in the mechanical field. It has all the ingredients so that you will never be short of an engine, but the engine has gained in smoothness in the low rev range. You have a lot of power in the throttle hand, but it doesn’t deliver it as abruptly as the first editions, so this is a bike more suitable for all audiences.
The continuous improvements in the clutch, together with the work of its electronics and the evolutions of the “Engine Revolution” engine (it was first mounted on the One RR 2018), have given a more than outstanding mechanical result.


Possibly none of the “2-stroke trials” on the market lack engine and lightness. In terms of performance, they are all very similar, although with their own particularities. The secret is the result of merging the mechanics with their chassis part.
The TRRS has an aluminium chassis with very balanced geometries for its entire range. We always say that its poise reminds us of that of a Cota 4RT. It has a fantastic weight distribution, something that translates to poise and easy balance when you’re at the controls. Despite its lightness (65 kilos), you feel that the front end is stable, something that is helped by the interesting decision to opt for a steel Tech fork instead of aluminum, which is more a question of performance than to reduce costs.
At the rear we have the well-known Reiger two-way shock absorber that is a marvel and works in perfect homogeneity with the front end. Braktec is again entrusted with braking. Front, with the new monoblock caliper that the RR 2019 already had, and at the rear incorporating a new pump with a tank incorporated in the same piece.


In terms of finishes, also a good level, but with points that could be improved. We like that the bike has stickers in practically every possible contact place in the event of a fall, which will mean better aging in the long run. Good anodized details on fork bridge, seatposts and chain tensioner. The filter box is more optimized and features a new baffle that helps keep the filter cleaner.
On the negative side, we miss that the rear disc is the one homologated by the FIM (completely closed), since more and more competitions require it for safety. On the other hand, the silencer still has only three points of support between the plastic bowl and the aluminium section, something that still makes it easier for the plates to break in the event of a fall. The “homemade” solution is to place a drill on top to also hold the silencer from this point.


This is a brand that in just four years has demonstrated a very high evolution in terms of dynamic, technical and reliable performance. TRS, like Vertigo, is a brand that is exclusively dedicated to trials, and it shows. Other brands, with enduro catalogues sharing the assembly line, devote fewer resources to a speciality that, logically, generates fewer sales and its market is smaller.
In our opinion, this is one of the most balanced bikes on the market at all riding levels. It should be remembered that this RR is manufactured in 125, 250, 280 and 200cc, with a price of around €7,300.
