Vee Two Ri­torno sings at Broad­ford

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZ BOX -

In front of an ex­cited gallery, the brand new Vee Two Ri­torno (“Re­turn or Come­back”) en­gine was started for the first time in public on Easter Satur­day at the Pen­rite Broad­ford Bo­nanza. The new en­gine, which goes into limited pro­duc­tion in May, fired up at 1pm and again the fol­low­ing day. “This is a cul­mi­na­tion of much work and a con­sid­er­able fi­nan­cial in­vest­ment,” said Vee Two gen­eral manager An­drew Cath­cart. “We chose the Ri­torno name be­cause this re­ally is the re­turn of one of the most fa­mous en­gines in his­tory – the en­gine that pow­ered the Du­cati rid­den by Mike Hail­wood to win the 1978 Isle of Man For­mula 1 TT. And although the Ri­torno fol­lows that de­sign closely, it also in­cor­po­rates the lat­est ma­te­ri­als and re­designed com­bus­tion cham­ber and valve an­gles.” For more de­tails of the Ri­torno, con­tact An­drew Cath­cart at Vee Two Australia, phone (08) 97560885 or email An­[email protected]
