Ever since the release of the 4RT260 model in 2014, Montesa has continued to introduce significant improvements to the model. Honda will continue with the Montesa Cota 4RT260 in 2016. The main improvement on the 2016 version is the increase in power thanks to the adoption of a new fuel pump which gives the motorcycle more fuel flow.
This element, along with the new mapping of the ECU, gives the motorcycle a consistent power curve especially in the low to mid ranges. The new ECU features a double ignition map activated though a switch on the handlebar. This way, in addition to the standard map, the rider will be able to choose a second map for lower grip terrains. With increased power, the reduction of engine braking when closing the throttle makes the motorcycle feel lighter and easier to control. The chassis has also been improved by repositioning the foot pegs, now lower and located more backward, making the overall weight of the front end lighter.
Among other improvements, the new radiator fan mount was changed to better evacuate dirt, pebbles, or other debris.
Another noticeable upgrade of the 4RT260 model is the adoption of all improved Dunlop D803GP tires, capable of incredible traction and making the motorcycle more responsive.
Like in the 2015 model, the Cota 4RT260 model also comes with a supplementary seat for soft trial or trip trial. The seat is easy to remove and includes a space to store various objects. This element gives the motorcycle more versatility, expanding the possibilities of its use.
