2023 Honda Montesa Cota 4RT 301RR Race Replica Dirt Motorcycle Review

If you don’t believe me, just ask Toni Bou, the 16-time (and counting!) World Champion of trials riding, who has won every one of his championships while riding a Montesa Cota. The Cota 4RT 301RR’s dominance may be attributed to the combination of Honda’s 298cc engine and Montesa’s famed reputation for excellence. This year, you have the choice of purchasing either the standard or the 2023 Honda Montesa Cota 4RT 301RR Race Replica Dirt Motorcycle, both of which come with unique graphics and the chance to customize your bike with a carbon-fiber clutch cover and exhaust protection. This year, the rear suspension on both models has been fine-tuned, and a solid rear sprocket and an optional lighting kit have been added. The Montesa Cota 4RT 260R is an excellent option for the occasional trials rider and is available while you’re here.

The Cota models are elite machines that can tackle the most challenging parts conceivable; they are designed, developed, and built in Barcelona, Spain, the unofficial city of trials and the site of Montesa’s factory. That’s why Toni Bou, who helped design the Honda-affiliated 4RT301RR and 4RT260R, sticks with Montesa every time he competes in the FIM World Trials. This matched set of models will satisfy the requirements of any trial rider.

2023 Honda Montesa Cota 4RT 301RR Race Replica Dirt Motorcycle – Features and Specs

PGM-FI Engine

Fuel-injected power that is simple to regulate makes the Honda Montesa Cota 4RT 301RR and 301RR Race Replica suitable for trail riding. The 298cc four-stroke engine is very versatile, with lots of power and torque over the whole rpm range, and it has been tuned specifically for low-rpm responsiveness. The engine’s robust power curve is primarily due to the high-pressure fuel pump.

Kickstart Lever

The considerable length of the kickstart lever on both the Cota 4RT 301RR and the Race Replica allows for simple, one-kick-starting from almost any point on the course.

Three-Ring Piston

The three-ring piston of the 4RT 301RR Race Replica ensures tighter sealing and longer life. The flat top and small weight of the piston improve combustion efficiency at low rpm.

Engineering Premium Suspension

Showa® makes both the front fork and the rear shock on the Montesa 301RR, and they’re tuned to enhance the bike’s handling and general feel.

Brakes and Wheels

The 32-spoke wheels and 4-piston Monoblock front brake caliper are standard on the Montesa Cota 4RT 301RR and the 301RR Race Replica. 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. Lightweight DID aluminum rims and durable Michelin X11 tires come standard on the Cota 4RT 301RR Race Replica.

Technology Dual-Map ECU

Does your route alternate between areas with excellent and lousy traction? The 4RT 301RR and the 301RR Race Replica include a mode switch conveniently located on the handlebars, allowing the rider to choose between two different power maps. The engine control unit (ECU) has been programmed to enhance throttle responsiveness at low and medium rpm on this bike.

Advanced Engineering

The Honda engine in the Cota has a battery-free digital ignition system with a bank-angle sensor that cuts power to the engine when the bike is on its side. A magnetic kill switch is included in the Cota 4RT 301RR and the 301RR Race Replica.

The aluminum chassis of the Cota 4RT 301RR and the 301RR Race Replica is beautifully finished, drawing attention to the car’s timeless good looks and high standards of craftsmanship. The Showa® fork of the Cota 4RT 301RR Race Replica may be adjusted to soft settings, much like the ones used by factory riders. The muffler’s mounts are strengthened, and the rear brake pedal is short, both of which protect the rider in case of an accident and give them more room to maneuver.

Top flight protection

As part of the Competition-Only Parts Kit, you may purchase a carbon fiber clutch case and exhaust manifold guards. The front brake lever is tool-free and adjustable, and the brackets for the brake and clutch levers are installed with a single bolt.

Winning style

Toni Bou’s spectacular World Championship decoration for his racing motorbike inspired the stunning Montesa Cota 4RT 301RR racing Replica.

Strong four-stroke engine

The flat-topped, three-ring piston of the Cota 301RR’s 298cc four-stroke, fuel-injected engine improves efficiency and performance at low RPM. The pause and ignition map help lessen engine braking.

Both the front and the back use Showa suspension.

The high-quality SHOWA front fork has a 39mm diameter and 158mm stroke, and the ground clearance is adjusted at 310mm. Pro-Link now controls the SHOWA shock absorber in the back and has a new tuning. The spring preload and compression damping of the front and rear suspensions are individually adjustable.

Racing Ready

The new Montesa Cota 4RT 301RR has a solid rear sprocket, allowing even our most demanding racing clients to ride straight from the store to the races without worrying about breaking any rules.
