American Honda announced the brand-new Cota 300RR, which joins the improved Cota 4RT260 in Honda’s expanded 2016 lineup of Montesa trials models. Produced entirely at the Honda-owned Montesa factory in the trials hotbed of Barcelona, Spain, the Cota 300RR is a limited-edition, state-of-the-art trials machine that is “capable of success at the highest level.”

Currently being campaigned by Cody Webb in the AMA NATC MotoTrials USA National Trials Championship, the brand-new Cota 300RR is a unique, competition-focused motorcycle designed for serious trials riders. Compared to the Cota 4RT260, the Cota 300RR’s redesigned 288cc engine has a longer stroke and larger bore, resulting in increased power and torque across the range, with a programmable ECU that allows fine-tuning for varying weather and terrain conditions. Lightweight components like a titanium header pipe and aluminum fork helped the bike lose more than four pounds. A front brake with a four-piston monoblock caliper is standard, as are wheels with aluminum D.I.D rims and black-anodized aluminum hubs.

The Cota 4RT260 and 300RR are both limited-edition models available via a special ordering process, with the 300RR selling for $9,999. Orders for the Montesa Cota 300RR may be placed beginning July 1. Orders for the Cota 4RT260 are already open.

    Never really followed trials riding, but always found the concept fascinating. Minimalist approach to motorcycle design for a complex race. Being 6'+ and 200+ I'll never ride one, but it looks like a whole lot of fun

    I'm 6'1" and weigh 240. Been riding trials for 25 years now. Trials will teach you that you really don't know how to ride a motorcycle! It is fun and challenging.
