Ever since its first release, the Montesa Cota 4RT model started a revolution in the world of trial, a discipline dominated completely by the mechanics of 2 stroke engines. These power plants are compact and easy to use, however, their value was diminished because of the high level of pollution emissions they caused. Such is the case, that advancing the emissions standards that were set to begin in 2006, Montesa, with the collaboration of Honda Motor Co., developed the Montesa Cota 4RT, an advanced trial motorcycle equipped with a revolutionary and compact 4 stroke and 4 valve engine with a PGM?FI electronic fuel injection, the results of this being a highly efficient machine with a low level of emission pollution and a significant value in power and torque.

The chassis also underwent a big change, with the adoption of a light aluminum frame and the high quality SHOWA suspensions, especially the advanced design of the rear suspension. Ever since the beginning, the performance of the 250cc engine has amazed for its capability to compete, in theory, with the superior 2 stroke engines with a similar displacement.

Both versions of the new Cota 4RT, the 4RT260 and the Race Replica, transmit a modern and fluid style with a new design of the fuel tank, a lot more slender and compact but keeping enough capacity to enjoy a long trial recreation day. The new rear mud guard is also designed to match the slender look of the fuel tank giving the motorcycle a more stylish overall look. Whilst the Race Replica version inherits the new powerful image of the motorcycle of the World Champion, the 4RT260 goes back to the original red color of Montesas emblematic classic Cota models. A red that is also present in the wheel hubs creating a perfect combination with the beautifully painted black anodized rims.
