MON­TESA SUR­PRISES – THE NEW 4RIDE!

Classic Trial - - NEWS -

Cel­e­brat­ing its 70th year the iconic Span­ish brand Mon­tesa has made a bold move with the in­tro­duc­tion of the new fourstroke 4Ride model. The new Mon­tesa 4RIDE was show­cased in Novem­ber to the me­dia at Honda’s head­quar­ters in Spain, in Santa Per­pè­tua de Mo­goda (Barcelona). With the in­clu­sion the new 300RR and the 4Ride Mon­tesa will now be offering a to­tal of four dif­fer­ent mod­els, as the Cota 4RT260 and the Race Replica will con­tinue to be pro­duced in the Span­ish pro­duc­tion plant. With the new 4RIDE Mon­tesa is hop­ing to reach a wider range of clients, not just the usual tri­als fans, by reinventing the con­cept of off-road. This new model was made to enjoy the en­vi­ron­ment in a fun and easy way.

The 4RIDE can still be iden­ti­fied by Mon­tesa’s clas­si­cal traits: ad­vanced four-stroke tech­nol­ogy, the qual­ity of its com­po­nents, and its uttermost re­spect for the en­vi­ron­ment. In fact, the model has been de­signed com­pletely by the tech­ni­cal team at Mon­tesa Honda’s pro­duc­tion plant in Santa Per­pè­tua de Mo­goda. The de­vel­op­ment team of the 4RIDE took the ba­sis of the Cota 4RT260 to cre­ate a mo­tor­cy­cle for ad­ven­ture rid­ing. It fea­tures a com­pletely re­vised gear ra­tio, offering the rider more com­fort at a steady speed and im­proved per­for­mance on long rides. With the same ob­jec­tive in mind the er­gonomics have also been re­vised, in­cor­po­rat­ing a seat and el­e­vat­ing the height of the sus­pen­sion sys­tem in­clud­ing both the front fork and the shock ab­sorber. The model is ex­pected to be avail­able for sale in Fe­bru­ary 2016.
