Beta Evo 300 4t Vs Montesa Cota 4rt

7 posts in this topic

Hi

I want to come back to trials after 10 years and want to buy a 4t, mainly for trail/explore use with a seat-tank kit.

I want something reliable, not so loudy, esy to kick start, sweet at low rpm and with good grip.

I'm dithering between the Beta or the Monty, MY12

Any piece of advice from your experience?

Thanks.

If you want:

Reliable, Mont.

Not loud, Beta, although the new Monts are quieter than the pre 09's.

Sweet bottom end, either a Mont with a Laia sanz fuel map, or the 2012 mont, only had a quick go on a Beta, so not sure on that one.

Good grip, Beta is very good, but so is a lower geared Mont, with a good fuel map (as above).

You can get a good long ride fuel seat combo for the Monts, not sure about the Beta.

Try and get a good go on both and then enjoy your choice ;0)

I have own them both. Here is my list:

Build quality-Montesa

Suspension-Definitly Montesa

Quietness- Beta

Grip-Beta is much better

Rev range- A Montesa will rev a lot more.

Strong bottom end-(300)Beta

Easy to start- Montesa when cold Beta when hot, Beta after stalling the engine.

Weight- Beta is lighter and feels lighter.

Easy to ride- Beta (except for suspension)

Here is my verdict:

A Beta evo 4T with Montesa suspension :xmas:

As a trail rather than trial I would go 4rt, mine was superb on forest tracks and across the moors.
