The factory has not released prices yet. They will be much lower than what you've heard.
Then there are the Browne family. They are ready for at least three new 4rt`s.
PS. CK you can`t wear out the bike if the wrist don`t twist!
See now that you can replace it, you can prove me wrong! This weekend you can toss it in the parking lot! (You should of rode the vintage last weekend, the sections were perfect for you! Right at Semi.)
Would have loved to made it up. Work is killing me right now working Saturdays and all. Not sure how much riding I'll make at Taos, but I'll try to make at least Sunday's event. We did get a good workout in Gordy's backyard course on Sunday though!
That looked like a good time at Gordy`s. Ron and I had a good time with 4 days at Sipapu. We both were on `78 Sherpa t`s and the sections were pretty technical and a few had some pucker power!
Wouldn't just about everything pucker you up riding a '78 anything?
Well it might of been I rode a day and a half with no clutch. Cable frayed apart 2nd loop first day. All the sections were very tight. John on the tricked out reflex, used the clutch most of the way through all sections. Remember ITSA rules lets you stop and balance(but not dab).
This, then, is very good news. If they can indeed build and sell these at competitive prices, that would mean 5000 euros? Shercos, Betas, and Gas Gas are all around the 5k euros mark, which seems to translate into $7000-$7500 US retail.
At that price they will be very good value - any lower would be a bonus, but very surprising to me.
The more I think about what we know about the 15-20% lower price, the more I'm thinking that that is for the the basic 260 and that the race rep will be around the same price it was for 2013. I know I'm only guessing, but I'd say £7000 for the race rep and £5600 for the cota 260 (That would be around £700 less than what the 2012 standard Cota was). But it could be 20% of the cota price which would make it around £5000.
We'll soon find out as its expected in Europe in September and if I'm reading what I've read on hear right, I guess you'll all be able to get one too.
It would be nice to see new ones in the US again!
Tell then I will keep riding my 07 4RT, but wondering with bated anticipation if it will happen.
That tour of the Montesa factory is sick! Thanks for posting Bob!!
I considered starting a thread titled for Curtis only!
Oh, my friggin' gawd!!!!!! :tb
I've been an HRC fan since the RSC days, and an HRC Montesa addict since I had the good sense to get into Trials in 2006. I don't care what anyone else on the planet thinks, all the other Trials brands available can kiss my ass!!! I'll very gladly hold on to my 314, 315R, and 4RT, thank you very much. Damn, that was cool!!!!
Thanks, Bob. Methinks I'll go ride my MONTESA tomorrow!!!!
Told 'ya it was sick!
I wish I had the job of dumping the `TRASH`.
