The 2020 Honda Montesa trials bikes have just been released; if you have what it takes to tackle this challenging sport, then Honda has the bikes for you. Commemorating the 26th FIM World Championship won by Repsol Honda’s Toni Bou earlier this year, Honda is releasing the 4RT260 Race Replica in the distinctive Repsol colors, the more affordable 4RT260, and the new and improved 301RR for those of you who are ready to race right now.

“There’s only one Toni Bou, and for 2020 we’re proud to offer American trials enthusiasts the three Montesa Cota models that have directly benefited from the champ’s development input,” said Chris Cox, American Honda's manager of experiential marketing/public relations. “Whether it’s to tackle the AMA NATC MotoTrials series or to spend weekends on technical trails with your friends, no lineup of trials machines is better equipped to get the job done.”
