What does Cota stand for?


Recommended Posts

There's 'Cota' printed several place on my '16 260. What does that it stand for, is it an acronym, or someone's name?

Yes, I've tried searching, and google translate, but granted I may have overlooked something quite apparent.

In 1968 it was the first year of the trials bike. Which the model was Cota. What cota meant in 1968, is probably different now. On the plus side my new german shephard puppie is named Cota.

Well from Google Translate I see that Cota = "Level" in English so maybe it was just intended to be interpreted as "Montesa Level"?  Implication that if you rode a Montesa you would up your game/level?

I know that isn't a great guess but other than that I really wouldn't know.  Hoping someone else might know and chime in on this one.
