4rt 2009 ?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know when the 2009 4rt is due to be released ? Any news on changes ?

Wanting to buy an 08 4rt but is it worth waiting for 09 ? Is the beta 4t as good a buy as a 4rt ?

Any help appreciated ?

Thanks.

4rt's mate not till november at the earliest, usually last to come out. Scorpa tend to be first along with gas gas then betas around october. So take your pick. Dont reckon the 4rt will change much. I reckon still be black frame. I hope its still black anyway.

i'd say about mid november, montesa are always last to have their release of the new bikes

edit: the beta's 4t look like good bikes are sound well but the 4rt is probably a better idea to go for mate

Better build quality

That's a matter of opinion (marshmallow sump plates?)

fuel injected

Hmm,

the engines of a 4rt are built by HONDA who know a lot more on how to build engines than beta

I've owned a Sherco and it spun its main bearings. The frame was made out of tin cans, the peg hanger snapped off the frame and the forks twisted after each drop off. That experience put me off Shercos for life as did their 4t disaster launch at the SSDT.

I've not owned a GG but know plenty of folk who swear by them, they ride nice but need a bit more TLC than most bikes.

Monts? Not owned one of these either but have had a good few rides on them. I don't like the front end, can't explain why but others have said the same. I spent a good few hours on a 4rt and liked the engine a lot.

I've had 1 second hand Beta and 4 new ones - none have needed a stator and all have coped with my 'style' of riding (crashing). Yes the carbs leaked but this was easily sorted. Linkless rear suspension, Beta build quality, Tonka toughness and great engines...
