More power and torque
The Cota 300RR’s liquid-cooled 4-valve Unicam engine delivers a noticeable boost in power and torque over the Cota 260RR.
Enhancements to the Cota 300RR’s engine for 2017 include a new piston with a flatter head for improved combustion at low rpm and reduced vibration, plus three piston rings instead of two for better throttle response, especially in the low to mid ranges.
A redesigned cylinder works in conjunction with the new piston to improve engine performance. ECU mapping has also been modified to further enhance response, particularly in the low to mid rpm ranges.
Choose your drive mode
Traction different from one section to the next? No problem. The Cota’s dual-mode ECU lets you choose between two ignition maps – one for low grip conditions and a second for maximum power.
Reduced engine braking
A crankcase decompression system limits engine braking when closing the throttle for improved rider control, making the bike feel lighter and easier to handle.
Battery-less digital ignition includes a bank-angle sensor to switch off the ignition when the motorcycle is lying horizontal.
