348 Cota Or Ty 250

5 posts in this topic

Looking to get a twinshock but no real idea about what's hot and what's not ?

There is a couple of cleans bikes in the shape of a 348 montesa cota and a ty 250 yam.

Is one better than the other, would you recommend one over the other ??

I guess if it where me with my head I would choose the yam and with my heart the mont but I'm biased.....

Hi, If Both bikes are stock and not modified there is not much between them ,My opinon is that the Ty is easier to modify for the classic sections of today. The 348 has a great trials engine and looks the part but the sections of today are not what they used to be in the 70's . Parts wise there doesn't seem to be a problem with either of the bikes.

I have had ty's majesty's and montesa's and i would have a TY and i own a 348 !! (but i ride a fantic 300)

Good luck Scorpa250

My farmer mates had a 348 Cota back in "the day" when I had a Beamish.Now my memory is not perfect,but the Mont seemed to be alot more hassle to keep going and the clutch was always a pain.My TY250's seem loads better than how I remember my RL,esp in how they steer and grip.

So my money would go on a TY - anyday,they are very easy to keep on form.
