2018 Honda Montesa Cota 300RR

In an age of electronic rider aids and MotoGP bikes that easily break 200 miles per hour, the Honda Montesa Cota 4RT260 and Cota 300RR Race Replica are a completely different way of experiencing the best of what motorcycling can offer. It’s a genius concept: Take Montesa’s legendary know-how when it comes to building world-championship trials bikes, combine that with a Honda engine, top it off with state-of-the-art suspension, and you get two of the best specialist motorcycles available in the world.

For 2017, both Cota models get some new color and graphic updates. Now both also feature a longer kickstarter, so one-kick starts are the norm. But no matter which Cota you choose, you’re getting one of the best pure trials bikes ever built—a marriage made in motorcycling heaven.
