TMW > 2023 Motorcycle Models > 2023 Honda > 2023 Honda Montesa Cota 4RT301RR Race Replica Guide
In the world of trials riding, the Montesa Cota is the undisputed king—just ask Toni Bou, 16-time (and counting!) World Champion, every one of those titles on a Montesa. Combining Montesa’s legendary expertise with a 298cc Honda engine, it’s no wonder the Cota 4RT 301RR is so dominant. This year you can choose from two versions—you can get a 4RT 301RR Race Replica too: in addition to special graphics, you get an optional carbon-fiber clutch cover and exhaust protector so you can lighten and fine-tune your bike to your riding preference. Both models get a retuned rear suspension this year, as well as a solid rear sprocket and an included optional lighting package. While you’re at it, you should also check out our Montesa Cota 4RT 260R, a perfect choice for the casual trials rider.
