2022 COTA 4RT 260R

THE NEW MONTESA COTA 4RT 260R

The Montesa Cota 4RT began a revolution back in 2006 with the all-conquering power and torque delivery of its four-stroke engine. Always at the pinnacle of competition, and constantly evolving, the 4RT is the ultimate trials machine.

Four-stroke engine

The Cota 4RT’s lightweight, fuel-injected, four-valve 258.9cc four-stroke engine delivers the smooth control – and power.

Lightweight protection

The bash plate is shaped to give maximum protection to engine underside and front lower frame rails. It’s also the same design as used by the Montesa World Championship machine and constructed from identical lightweight aluminium, maintaining thickness with improved strength.

Front suspension

Ground clearance is set at 310mm and the high-quality 39mm diameter Showa front fork features 158mm stroke. The Showa rear shock operates through Pro-Link and both front and rear suspension are adjustable for spring preload and compression damping.

Fine brake control

The lever can be adjusted without tools. Both brake and clutch lever brackets mount with a single bolt, making adjustment quick and easy.

Higher performance

The Montesa 260R is now equipped with the same muffler as the Cota 4RT 301RR. This new exhaust gives more power at mid and high range.

 

IT’S ABOUT QUALITY and attention to detail.

The Cota 4RT is carefully manufactured at Montesa Honda’s Factory in Barcelona, northern Spain. Each machine is meticulously assembled with every part checked and rechecked for the highest quality required from a Montesa, and the function of a championship-winning tool.

 

Develop your race craft.

If you want to take your competitive riding to the next level the Cota 4RT is primed and ready. Its twin-spar aluminum frame, suspension and strong engine are designed to find grip and drive in the face of what seems impossible. And a host of detail improvements – many inspired directly by the World Championship machine – plus sharp new decals keep the Cota 4RT firmly where it belongs. At the very top.

To the art of true balance.

A breath-taking climb strewn with wet, vertical rock faces. Or a gnarled descent over moss-covered tree roots. Competitive trials offer perhaps the most severe test of a motorcycle and rider – and it’s what we make the Cota 4RT for.

2022 COTA 4RT 301RR Repsol

THE NEW MONTESA COTA 4RT 301RR RACE REPLICA

Always at the pinnacle of competition, and constantly evolving, the Cota 4RT 301RR Race Replica is the choice of the ultimate trial champion. We’ve taken the best and made it that little bit better by creating a Race Replica that includes a distinguished World Championship decoration.

  • £8,299

 

 

Strong four-stroke engine

The Cota 301RR’s fuel-injected, four-valve 298cc four-stroke engine features a flat-topped, three-ring piston to boost low-rpm torque and efficiency. Engine braking is reduced thanks to the breather design and ignition map

Minimal engine braking

The engine’s crankcase gas decompression system ensures minimal engine braking for a lighter feel on a closing throttle.

Front and rear Showa suspension

Ground clearance is set at 310mm and the high-quality 39mm diameter Showa front fork features 158mm stroke. The Showa rear shock operates through Pro-Link and both front and rear suspensions are adjustable for spring preload and compression damping.

 

Lightweight protection

Carbon fibre protectors (for clutch case and exhaust manifold) are available as part of the Optional Parts Kit (for competition use only). Also, the brake and clutch lever brackets mount with just a single bolt, making adjustment easy; the front brake lever can also be adjusted without using tools.

Winning style

The stunning Cota 4RT Race Replica also features full World Championship decoration.

 

 

High quality parts and production.

Every Cota 4RT Race Replica is meticulously assembled at Montesa’s Barcelona-based factory in northern Spain. Every detail – no matter how small – matters in the creation of competition-ready performance, as does a high-quality production process and parts.

 

Develop your race craft

Based on the excellent Cota 4RT, we have created an exclusive Race Replica inspired by the decoration on the World Champion bike.
In addition, the high-quality Showa suspension will always be appreciated on more complicated terrain.
It also includes an Optional Kit with carbon parts so that the rider can lighten and/or personalize the bike. This kit consists of right hand side engine cover and exhaust elbow.

 

To push harder.

Competitive trials offers the most severe test for a motorcycle. And it’s what we make the Cota 4RT 301RR Race Replica for. But the test for the rider is even greater. Believe in your machine, believe in yourself and push harder.

The Cota 4RT 301RR Race Replica is the two-wheeled embodiment of your desire to perform and, ultimately, succeed at the highest level. It will take you where you want to go with a winner’s style.

Top flight protection

Identical to the design and used on Montesa’s World Championship machine, the new bash plate uses a tough, but lightweight aluminium construction, carefully shaped to give maximum protection for the 301RR’s underside.

Sure footed support

The lightweight triangular-section forged aluminium side stand is hardened for strength. It mounts close to the engine and tucks neatly underneath the swingarm, well out of harm’s way.

Durable design

The front brake master cylinder is designed for long trails in tough conditions. The brake and clutch mounting brackets are also finished in red.

 

World Championship winning motorcycle.

The Cota 301RR is the result of 28 world titles in the top category. The muffler design is perfectly matched to the engine specs. It is a bike developed at the races for very demanding customers.

Develop your race craft.

If you demand performance and exclusivity, the Cota 4RT 301RR is built for you. Its 298cc engine delivers a smooth wall of power and torque with the sort of precise control that hunts out every shred of rear wheel grip. And its chassis — with a specification that includes a 39mm Showa front fork, rear Showa shock and twin-spar aluminium frame — is ready for any test. It also includes an Optional Kit with carbon parts so that the rider can lighten and/or personalize the bike. This kit consists of right hand side engine cover and exhaust elbow

 

2020 Montesa 4RIDE

New colour scheme in white with golden alloy wheels.

Ride from your home. Cover any terrain with confident ease. And ride back to your garage. The Cota 4RIDE mixes genuine trials ability—as you’d expect from Montesa—with an off-roader’s comfort and range. It’s one machine to do it all.

 

Price:

  • £6,499

 

Smooth delivery

The 2020 updates to the fuel-injected, four-valve 259cc four-stroke engine include a new engine map and breather, accompanied by same bash plate design installed on the World Championship machine.

Taller gearing

Sometimes you need to make reasonable progress on faster terrain; the 4RIDE’s 5-speed gearbox features a taller ratio adding versatility and the ability to cover ground quickly. The taller gearing, 4.3L fuel tank – and the engine’s fuel efficiency – all work together to extend riding time between fill-ups.

Under seat storage

If you’re out riding all day then a little onboard carrying capacity is useful to have. The 4RIDE features easy-to-access under seat storage for a lightweight jacket, gloves or anything else you need to enjoy your adventure. Sometimes it’s the smallest details that make the biggest difference…

All-day comfort

With a seat height of 885mm and weight of just 83kg the slim 4RIDE is one of the easiest off-roaders out there to manage. And its high-quality construction includes a twin-spar aluminium frame, long travel 39mm TECH telescopic fork and R16V rear shock operating through Pro-Link, both adjustable for spring preload and compression damping.

Robust elegance

The Cota 4RIDE is beautifully finished and stands out in a crowd with its red and white colour scheme against blacked-out wheel rims and aluminium frame. Bolder white accenting on the headlight protector and radiator shrouds, plus dual red stripes on the rear mudguard, keep its looks razor-sharp.

 

REINVENTING OFF-ROAD

Nobody likes constraints. Which is where the Cota 4RIDE comes in. It has a trials bike’s ability – thanks to a strong and smooth 259cc four-stroke engine, twin-spar aluminium frame, Showa 39mm TECH front fork and Pro-Link rear shock – but also a comfortable seat and riding position, extended suspension travel and 4.3L fuel tank plus headlight and taillight. Because, after all, who knows where the trail leads? Go find out on the Cota 4RIDE.

 

NO BOUNDARIES

See that climb? Impossible they say. Not on the Cota 4RIDE. When it’s time to really explore, and stray well off the beaten track, it has the performance DNA to soar, finding grip where others slide or spin.

Stop, take a look around. The stunning view is courtesy of nature and millennia passed, but the fact you’re there to enjoy it, after just a few hours in the saddle is down to you and the Cota 4RIDE. Take a minute – enjoy it. You’ve earnt it.

Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing.
