Montesa has announced new features for its models and Race Replica 4RT260 Cota 2017, which since its inception in 2014 have been receiving improvements year after year. The new 260 will be first and the next weekend (2 and 3 July) in Andorra in the paddock of the 2 Trial Dies d’Encamp and begin trading in early September.
Which has a more radical change to aesthetic level is the 4RT260 Cota, leaving the red as the main color, changing it to an elegant white, combined with details in blue and red and the fuel tank in aluminum gives an important air of sportiness. Cosmetic changes are also noticed in the TECH fork, where the bar is now chrome and black bottle.
For its part, the Race Replica also receives some change, as the ‘M’ of Montesa now located on the rear fenders give more presence, but basically still maintains the aesthetics of the bike Repsol Honda Team world champion and piloted by Toni Bou, Takahisa Fujinami and Jaime Busto. in addition to cosmetic changes, both models now have a lever longer boot, type Cota 300R, which facilitates further the implementation of the bike with a single kick. as for the thermodynamic group, still rely on the engine 4 – stroke 260cc model of last season, which benefited from a remarkable increase power thanks to the adoption of a new fuel pump that provides flow of gasoline. This factor, together with the mapping of the ECU *, gets that engine power curve offers a full especially low and medium engine speeds.
Another highly significant aspect is the clear reduction of the engine brake already incorporated the previous model, a feature of the 4 – stroke thrusters was intelligently resolved by Honda engineers with decompression system crankcase gases. Through this system, cutting gas, the engine only charged a minimal effect of engine braking causing the motorcycle feel much lighter and controllable.
The model Race Replica maintains the prestigious set of suspensions front and rear SHOWA high quality continuing It is a benchmark in trial. In the case of 4RT260 Cota, it presents a set of suspensions of high level, but in turn with a cost much content. The front suspension is signed by TECH, while the rear light relies on a multi -adjustable damper R16V, a set of highly effective suspensions resulting in a greater sense of lightness.
