This piece of news is for the group of riders who like to ditch the tarmac for trail riding. Honda (UK) has announced the new 2015 versions of the Montesa Honda Cota 4RT trial machines. The Montesa Honda Cota 4RT began a revolution in the trials arena on its introduction in 2006, bringing the environmental benefits of four-stroke technology, along with power and torque delivery, to a world previously dominated by two-stroke machinery.
Along with wooing new riders to the sport, the 2015 Montesa Honda Cota 4RT260 continues to fulfil modern trials riders’ expectations, which have changed over recent years in line with the prevailing global financial situation. The new model therefore features a major improvement to its suspension technology at a more affordable price.
The new 4RT260 comes with a revised fuel injection and ignition map in its 260cc engine for improved traction, especially on difficult terrain, and better throttle control. Engine braking has also been minimised to make the bike feel lighter and easier to control.
Other features on the 2015 Montesa Honda Cota 4RT260 include a more open handlebar design to relieve pressure on the rider’s arms, remodelled brake master cylinders, and a new 41-tooth rear sprocket. A re-designed front fender works with revised graphics to give a sportier and slimmer look, while a supplementary seat for soft trials activities gives the machine even greater versatility.
Customers can also order the Cota 4RT in Toni Bou’s title winning Race Replica model. The Montesa Honda Cota 4RT Race Replica also features a number of improvements for 2015 including a new monoblock four-piston front calliper for more efficient and powerful braking. The 2015 4RT Race Replica carries the graphics and colours of the official machines.
Like the 2015 4RT260 machine, however, the Race Replica’s front fender has been given the new angular design and a new shift pedal is slimmer and more elegant.
The Montesa Honda Cota 4RT260 and the 4RT Race Replica will be available from September and will be priced at £5,849 and £6,999 respectively.
So, it’s a four-stroke motorcycle that comes at an affordable tag. A combination that might just work perfectly in India!
