2016 Honda Montesa Cota 300RR Review

2016 Honda Montesa Cota 300RR on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Race Ready…

The Montesa Honda Cota 300RR has been uniquely developed with a focus on increasing power and reducing weight, resulting in an exclusive race orientated machine that’s reflective of our expert team’s proven experience in Trial Championships.

Next Level

Let the trials begin.

Compete with features that deliver precision and control. The Montesa Cota 300RR features a redesigned engine that delivers a noticeable lift in displacement to 289cc, due to an increase in the diameter of the piston (+2mm) and stroke (+3mm). The 300RR features a new fuel pump for the PGM-Fi Electronic Fuel Injection system which allows for increased fuel flow. Engine braking has also been reduced, giving the bike a lighter feel with easier control.

Take Control

Competition Ready.

The Montesa Cota 300RR features a modified clutch system with a new pump that delivers additional power and responsiveness to help you take complete control. Michelin XII tyres with aluminium hubs provide excellent response and grip whilst the aluminium frame and swingarm provide exceptional performance with a truly lightweight feel.

Advanced Technology

Competition Spec

Experience optimised control that you can rely on with 300RR’s single, 4-stroke, 4-valve, liquid cooled engine with 288cm3 displacement and ECU with enhanced ignition mapping that optimises performance and control of the power plant. Featuring a SHOWA shock absorber, the 300RR boasts a TECH suspension fork created with aluminium tubes making it 2kg lighter than Cota 4RT, weighing a total of 72kg.


The Honda Montesa team has produced two of the most brilliant trials machines the world has ever seen: the Montesa Cota 4RT260 and the all-new Montesa Cota 300RR.

What’s the difference? Cota 4RT260 is a cutting-edge trials bike, the perfect combination of Honda’s engine technology and Montesa’s world-championship trials experience. The Cota 300RR takes things a step further: It’s a true limited-edition factory replica, with an engine that now displaces a full 288cc, thanks to both a larger piston and a long-stroke crank. It also features a new ECU with a twin-map option: with the flick of a handlebar-mounted switch you can even choose between two ignition maps for varying levels of available traction. And finally, the Cota 300RR is two pounds lighter than the Cota 4RT260.

Serious about winning? Or just serious about trials riding on the best bike available? Either way, there’s a Montesa Cota that’s right for you. Both are available in limited quantities. But take our word—the wait’s been worth it.



2016 Honda Montesa Cota 300RR www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

ENGINE

Both Cota models use an aluminum chassis with a gorgeous finish, showcasing the classic lines and the impeccable manufacturing quality. The Cota 300RR’s footpegs are 5mm lower and 5mm farther back, taking more weight off the bike’s front end. Along with the lighter front suspension, the machine feels more responsive and agile.

 

CHASSIS

Both Cota models feature fuel-injected power that’s easier to modulate, for the surgical power delivery so critical to trials riding. Specifically tuned for low-rpm response, they’re also extraordinarily flexible, with plenty of power and torque all the way through the rev range. A bigger cylinder bore and longer stroke means the Cota 300RR increases its displacement to 288cc. Also, a new fuel pump provides more pressure, helping give the engine a stronger power curve everywhere, boosting the midrange while maintaining its excellent power delivery at low rpm.

 

ENGINEERING

The Cotas’ Honda engines use battery-less digital ignition systems, and include a bank-angle sensor to switch off the ignition when the motorcycle is lying on the ground. The Cota 300RR also incorporates a magnetic kill switch.

 

BRAKES AND WHEELS

Both 2016 Montesa Cota models are equipped with a 4-piston monoblock front-brake caliper. The Cota 300RR features a new red-anodized Braktec caliper which increases braking performance. Each Cota uses 32-spoke wheels. The rear wheel features an innovative system incorporating central-adjustment spokes for a significant weight reduction, and which also allows the Cota to fit tubeless tires. The Cota 300RR comes with premium Michelin X11 tires, laser-engraved hubs, and light DID aluminum rims.

DUAL-MAP ECU

Does your course feature sections with poor traction, followed by sections with better grip? No problem—the new 300RR features a handlebar-mounted mode switch that lets you choose between two maps/modes to change engine power delivery.

 

PREMIUM SUSPENSION

The Montesa Cota 4RT260 offers an adjustable 39mm TECH fork and R16V shock for the Pro-Link rear suspension. The Cota 300RR features a new TECH fork with lighter aluminum tubes and a Showa rear suspension designed to improve stability, traction, and overall feel.

 

SUPPLEMENTAL SEAT

The Montesa Cota 4RT260 comes with a removable seat that is substantially more comfortable and incorporates a handy underseat storage.

 

REDUCED WEIGHT

The all-new Montesa Cota 300RR is two pounds lighter than the 4RT260, making this great trials machine even better.
