In an age of electronic rider aids and MotoGP bikes that easily break 200 miles per hour, the Honda Montesa Cota 4RT260 and Cota 300RR Race Replica are a completely different way of experiencing the best of what motorcycling can offer. It’s a genius concept: Take Montesa’s legendary know-how when it comes to building world-championship trials bikes, combine that with a Honda engine, top it off with state-of-the-art suspension, and you get two of the best specialist motorcycles available in the world. Just ask trials rider Toni Bou, who used his Cota to win an incredible 20th World Championship (10 outdoor, 10 indoor), or Marc Freixa who won the AMA/NATC Moto Trials National Championship.
Check out these two great options: The Cota 4RT260 is a cutting-edge trials bike, the perfect combination of Honda’s engine technology and Montesa’s world-championship trials experience. Want to ride what the champions ride? Then check out the Cota 300RR Race Replica, with its 288cc engine. It’s even lighter than the feathery Cota 4RT260.
For 2017, both Cota models get some new color and graphic updates. Now both bikes also feature a longer kickstarter, so one-kick starts are the norm. And both offer twin ignition maps for varying course conditions. But no matter which Cota you choose, you’re getting one of the best pure trials bikes ever built—a marriage made in motorcycling heaven.
