Ver­tigo Pre­sen­ta­tion

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

Dougie Lamp­kin with the new Ver­tigo.
