2023 Honda Montesa Cota 4RT 260R Trail Dirt Bike – Features and Specs

PGM-FI Engine

For the precise, controlled application of power required for trial riding, Honda designed the Montesa Cota 4RT 260R with fuel injection. The 259cc four-stroke engine is very versatile, with lots of energy and torque throughout a wide rpm range and fine-tuned for low-rpm responsiveness. The engine’s robust power curve is mainly due to the high-pressure fuel pump.

Kickstart Lever

The Cota 4RT 260R’s large starter lever makes it simple to start the bike with only one foot.


The aluminum chassis of the Montesa Cota 4RT 260R has a beautiful polish, and its timeless design and high-quality construction are on full display. To reduce the likelihood of collisions and give the rider more room to maneuver, the rear brake pedal has been made shorter.

Premium Suspension

The Pro-Link rear suspension and 39mm Showa® fork on the Montesa Cota 4RT 260R are fully adjustable.

Brakes and Wheels

The 32-spoke wheels and 4-piston monoblock front brake caliper are standard on the Montesa Cota 4RT 260R. A tubeless rear tire is possible on the Cota thanks to the rear wheel’s revolutionary central-adjustment spoke system, contributing to the bike’s overall lightweight design.

Dual-Map ECU

Does your track have slick spots followed by more stable footing? The 4RT 260R’s mode switch, conveniently located on the handlebars, allows you to choose between two different maps/modes, each of which modifies the way the engine delivers its power.

Top-flight protection

The front lower frame rails and engine bottom are given further protection by the bash plate’s unique design. The lightweight aluminum employed in its construction is the same as that used in the Montesa machine that won the World Championship.

Higher performance

The silencer on the Montesa 260R is now the same as the one on the Cota 4RT 301RR. The redesigned exhaust improves both mid-range and top-end performance.

Front and rear SHOWA suspension

The 310mm ground clearance is complemented with a premium SHOWA front fork with a 39mm diameter and 158mm stroke. The SHOWA shock absorber in the back is controlled by Pro-Link as well. Compression damping and spring preload may be adjusted independently for the front and rear suspension.

New aluminum side stand

The Cota 301RR’s lightweight, forged aluminum side stand with a triangular shape was passed down. It is installed near the engine and tucked away safely beneath the swingarm.

Four-stroke engine

Smooth handling and plenty of power come from the Cota 4RT’s 258.9cc four-stroke, fuel-injected, four-valve engine.

In 2006, the Montesa Cota 4RT’s four-stroke engine unleashed a revolution with its ability to generate unrivaled power and torque. The 4RT is the apex of trial technology since it is always at the top of its game and is constantly improving. The gasoline tank of the new 2023 model is finished in Montesa’s signature Red, making it stand out from the crowd.
