Capping off a season that saw Repsol Honda trials rider Toni Bou land an incredible 20th World Championship (10 outdoor, 10 indoor), while U.S. Montesa Honda rider Marc Freixa landed the AMA/NATC MotoTrials National Championship, American Honda announces its lineup of 2017 Montesa trials motorcycles. Between the exclusive Cota 300RR and the capable Cota 4RT260, Honda Montesa has something for trials riders of every level.

“No one is more passionate about their pastime than trials enthusiasts, so it’s gratifying to continue supporting these customers in the U.S., particularly given the success Honda has enjoyed this year in international and domestic competition,” said Lee Edmunds, Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications at American Honda.

Montesa Cota 300RR
Introduced last year, the Cota 300RR was made for competition (the “RR” suffix stands for “Race Ready”) and is the production model most similar to the prototypes used by factory Honda Montesa riders. For 2017, the 300RR is even better, with new ECU mapping that improves engine response in the low and middle rpm ranges that are especially important for trials motorcycles. Another aspect that contributes to engine response is the new three-ring piston (up from two), which helps prevent leakage and improves durability. The piston is now lighter and has a flatter top, reducing vibration and making combustion more efficient at low rpm. The cylinder has also been redesigned to match the new piston, further improving engine efficiency. The chassis has also been updated, with new, suppler settings for the Tech fork, similar to those used by factory riders. Finally, the muffler is more robust with reinforced mounts, and the rear-brake pedal has been shortened to avoid impacts and allow the rider more freedom of movement.

The factory-replica Montesa Cota 300RR is two pounds lighter than the 4RT260, making a great trials machine even better. Engine and suspension components offer increased performance compared to the 4RT260, and the black-and-red livery is visually stunning. Helping give the bike a factory feel are HRC carbon-fiber parts, including clutch-cover protector, exhaust-pipe protector and headlight visor, along with an anodized chassis and lightweight D.I.D aluminum rims with black-anodized machined hubs and Michelin tires.
