The newest version of the Montesa Honda Cota 4RT – a favorite world titlist and popular with competitive trials riders throughout the UK – now boasts of a major improvement to its suspension technology, but still comes at a more affordable price.

The 2015 Montesa Honda Cota 4RT260 features a revised fuel injection and ignition map in its 260cc engine that allows better traction and better throttle control. Honda also minimized engine braking, making the 2015 Montesa Honda Cota 4RT260 feel lighter and easier to control.

The 4RT260 now features a more open handlebar design that lessens pressure on the rider’s arms, re-modeled brake master cylinders, and a new 41-tooth rear sprocket.

The 2015 Montesa Honda Cota 4RT260 has front fender works that features revised graphics, giving the trial championships winner a slimmer yet sportier and slimmer look. Montesa also provided a supplementary seat for soft trials activities.

The last seven of Montesa Honda’s 16 world trials championships was achieved by Toni Bou in his Cota 4RT model. Now customers and fans alike could order a replica of his title-winning Cota 4RT model.

The Montesa Honda Cota 4RT Race Replica also boasts of a slew of improvements for the 2015 version. These improvements include a new monoblock four-piston front caliper. It still features Showa suspension used by the Repsol Montesa Honda team and riders Toni Bou and Takahisa Fujinami.

Just like the original, the 2015 4RT Race Replica features the same graphics and colors. Some changes, however, were implemented like a new angular design and a slimmer yet more elegant shift pedal.
