2018 Honda Montesa Cota 4RT260 Review

EXPERIENCE DIFFERENT.

2018 Honda Montesa Cota 4RT260 Review on Total Motorcycle:

The 4RT260 is a cutting-edge trials bike, the ideal combination of Honda’s engine technology and Montesa’s world-championship trials experience. Responsive handling is provided by the lightweight aluminum frame and swingarm, along with high-quality suspension components and Dunlop tires. The 4RT260 boasts a unique removable seat to adapt to different riding applications, and it also has a convenient under-seat storage area.

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.
