In the competitive world we live in it’s a brave man who decides to introduce a new brand and a new trials motorcycle starting with a clean sheet of paper. At the famous EICMA motorcycle exhibition in Milan, Italy, Vertigo Motors unveiled their all-new Trials model to the World’s media and key industry stakeholders. This marked a proud moment for the new Spanish manufacturer and its owner Manel Jane, with their new creation receiving immediate praise and appreciation from the assembled audience. Great Britain’s twelve times FIM Trials World Champion Dougie Lampkin, who has been instrumental in the development of the Vertigo Combat machine, was on hand in Milan to lift off the covers from two versions of the new machine – Camo and Ice Hell. Lampkin’s continued role with the project will be as the Vertigo Sports Team Manager and as brand ambassador.
This 300cc two-stroke
single cylinder powered machine has been designed to set new standards within its field and boasts a series of technical innovations and developments to create an incredibly strong and balanced overall package.
The ultra-compact engine offers amazing torque throughout and produces an impressive 31hp at 9,200rpm. The bespoke electronic system represents the latest advances in this sector, with the ECU managing and controlling the performance of the engine in all situations. The rider can choose from four different maps in each of the six gears, with the twenty-four maps allowing an unequalled level of user refinement. The ECU accurately adjusts the fuel injection and ignition settings in each and every gear to provide exceptional and smooth power delivery to match the terrain and riding conditions.
Optimum performance is maintained in all circumstances thanks to the high air intake and specially designed radiator that works seamlessly in conjunction with the electronic water pump and fan that responds directly to water temperature rather than engine speed or rider activity. The high-level engine characteristics are perfectly matched by a
