July 10 2013.

The long-awaited, new-for-2014 Montesa Honda Cota 4RT, a model that will be sold in two versions, the 4RT260 and the 4RT260 Factory, was unveiled at the latest round of the  World Trias lChampionship in Barzio, Italy, and Honda (UK) has confirmed that both models will be sold in the UK.

The Cota 4RT260 has been developed in collaboration with the Repsol Montesa Team.  For more competition focussed riders, the 'Factory' offers high-specification SHOWA suspension and a host of other upgrades. It also carries the Repsol Montesa Honda team image and graphics - a team that has enjoyed unrivalled domination in World Trials in recent years, taking the last fifteen world titles (indoor and outdoor) with rider Toni Bou.

The new model has an increase in displacement to 260cc, which results in improved performance, more usable rpm range and stronger torque in the mid-range. In addition, engine braking has been reduced significantly, offering enhanced rider feel and control.

The Cota 4RT260 and the 'Factory' will be available in the UK from start of the last quarter of 2013 through selected Honda (UK) off-road franchised dealers. Price cannot yet be announced but both models will be priced "extremely competitively".
