VERTIGO UNVEILS THE NEW 2021 R3

Vertigo Motors is proud to present the 2021 Vertigo-Vertical-R3.  This new Model has been revised extensively both internally and externally and it is the direct evolution of it’s hugely successful predecessor the R2, which was the best selling model in the history of Vertigo Motors.

This new model benefits from a full year of technical advancements and developments following feedback from our World Championship Factory Team.  This ensures the new 2021 R3 model is even more refined and advanced than ever before. 

The new racing model is available in the entire Vertigo engine range 125, 200, 250, 280 and 300cc versions. Each of these versions have been subject to a meticulous testing and technical development by our engineers.

The revised for 2021 airbox helps to greatly increase engine performance. This is thanks to an increased volume and new apertures on the top of the airbox, providing better performance throughout the rev range, especially in lower RPM.

New mapping has also been developed to work in conjunction with the new airbox to help maximise overall engine performance.

The Racing throttle body and 366g flywheel weight ensure an extremely responsive yet also smooth and controllable power delivery.

Up front new billet machined triple clamps finished in anodised black are lighter and provide a new steering angle for improved manuvability and stability.

The footrest supports have also been revised for 2021, having been lowered by 5mm and inclined forward 5° to offer better rider stability

The latest spec Tech racing forks and 2 way Reiger multi-adjustable rear shock provide extremely smooth and responsive feedback to the rider, whilst also allowing further fine tuning of the suspension set up depending on the riders individual riding style.

There is a new clutch configuration for 2021 with a new spring, pre-load and dimension of the clutch pack in order to eliminate clutch drag and offer a smoother gear selection.

The Carbon-Fibre engine case guards on this model protect vulnerable parts of the engine whist adding to the Factory look.

Finally a new for 2021 white finish to the signature multi-tubular frame, together with the red, black, white and green graphics, and the black anodised wheels with red anodised billet machined hubs all add up to give a fresh and aggressive new look to this racing model.

Vertigo Motors is pleased to announce that 2018, 2019, and 2020 TrialGP Women runner-up Berta Abellán, will continue to compete in green machinery through to 2021. Berta plays a key role within the Vertigo family, not only for her impressive results in competition, but also for her involvement with the project since she joined the Vertigo family back in 2018.

There is no doubt Berta is amongst the top athletes of the sport, which is proven by her three consecutive TrialGP Women runner-up finishes over the last three years and her already impressive record book, where we can find several National Championships, a TdN title with Team Spain and the 2018 European Championship despite being only 21 years old. Always eager for more while getting one step closer every year, Abellán will keep up her quest for a World Championship title next season.

In 2021, a part from the TrialGP Women World Championship, Abellán will also focus in the Spanish National Series.

Berta Abellán: “I’m really happy to announce my contract extension with Vertigo, a brand that fully supports me! I would like to thank them for giving me another chance in 2021. I’m already eager to compete again and give my 100%!

VERTIGO AND PAU MARTÍNEZ TO CHASE MORE SUCCESS TOGETHER

The reigning Trial125 World Champion Pau Martínez and Vertigo are looking forward to continuing their successful partnership as both parts have agreed to extend the Spaniard’s contract with a new two-year deal, which will see Martinez moving up to the Trial2 category in 2021.

Since joining the Vertigo project in 2019, Martínez has already become one of the most successful riders in the brand’s history by giving the manufacturer three Championships in only two years. With his eyes set on continuing his impressive progression, Martínez is ready to take on a new challenge in 2021 as he will team up with Vertigo Factory teammate Hugo Dufrese in the Trial2 class.

On Spanish soil, Martínez will compete in the TR2 National Championship after getting a phenomenal 3rd place in what has been his rookie year in the class.

Pau Martínez: “Stoked to continue with Vertigo for the next two seasons! I look forward to winning more titles with the brand as we did this year with the Trial125 World Championship added to the 2019 European Championship and the Junior Spanish Championship. I would like to thank Manel Jané and the whole team for their support and for believing in me”.

VERTIGO AND BEN DIGNAN CONTINUE PARTNERSHIP THROUGH 2021

Vertigo is delighted to announce that young prospect Ben Dignan will remain as part of the Factory Team in 2021. After delivering an outstanding run of results this season, the Scotsman will enter the upcoming campaign as one of the top Trial125 World Championship contenders, while as a Vertigo Motors UK rider, he will also focus on the British National Championship.

Dignan has quite surprised everyone in the TrialGP paddock with his impressive and solid results in the Trial125 class. From merely entering the Top 10 on the opening day of competition in France, his progression was nothing short but amazing throughout the year, which saw him on the podium three times including his maiden victory on a World Championship event in Andorra day 2.

Ben Dignan: “Estoy muy contento de haber firmado por otra temporada con Vertigo y realmente estoy deseando empezar a trabajar de nuevo con Dougie y el equipo. La temporada 2020 fue memorable para mí y no puedo esperar más para empezar 2021!

NEW 2021 TITANIUM BUSTO REPLICA

Vertigo Motors is proud to present the new, Limited Edition, 2021 TITANIUM Busto Replica. Available in 250 & 300cc this new TITANIUM Replica model has been created to celebrate the great achievements of the Spanish talent throughout the 2020 season with a total of four podiums and an impressive third place in the overall standings, which is by far, the best results for Vertigo in the premier class since the green brand entered the World Championship. 

For 2021 the TITANIUM model keeps it’s throne as the lightest and most exclusive production trials bike on the planet. This is in part thanks to its spectacular multitubular design TITANIUM frame which weighs in at a super-light 2.1kgs only, And which many describe as a work of art. This frame together with other Titanium components help to contribute to the overall, ultra lightweight 65kgs total of this bike.

As with every TITANIUM model each bike also comes fitted with the WIFICOM system. This allows the owner the option to connect any mobile phone to the GET ECU and adjust the engine settings instantly and while out riding. This is an absolutely unique production feature to this Vertigo model, and indeed any production trials bike from any other brand.

This new TITANIUM model is also fitted with the black, with gold details, Tech Factory spec front forks in combination with the multi adjustable 3 way Reiger rear shock.

These suspension units provide extremely smooth and responsive feedback to the rider, whilst also allowing any rider to further fine tune their suspension set up depending on their individual riding style.

The TITANIUM exhaust on this model is engraved with Jaime’s personal logo and the silencer has a striking matt black finish which help set it aside from other models in the Vertigo range.

The airbox is again the new design carried over from the Busto Replica model which helps to greatly increase engine performance.

A new high compression cylinder head (300cc model only) together with a carbon-fibre admission tube, unique to the Busto models, and the Vertigo intercooler, also help to contribute to the extremely high performance of this model.

Whilst the carbon-fibre engine case guards, as well as protecting vulnerable parts of the engine help to add to the factory look of this bike. 

The Renthal bars, anodised in black on this model, have always been Jaime’s own personal choice of handle bar. They are clamped to the all new billet machined, ultra lightweight triple clamps, which themselves are also finished in anodised black and again unique to the Busto models.

The TITANIUM model also has hand crafted TITANIUM footrests by Raptor UK. These footrests have been developed especially for Vertigo giving a unique riding position as preferred by Busto himself.  In addition each set of footrests are laser etched with the Limited Edition number of each bike, so as to match the engraved Limited Edition plate which also adorns each one of these very special bikes.

The new textured red, white, black and green graphics give a very youthful and aggressive look to the bike. Which is of course very fitting to Jaime’s own personal character.  You will also find Jaime’s signature prominently displayed on the airbox cover. 

The Vertigo Factory will produce only 20 exclusive units for World Wide distribution. Therefore this model is a truly extremely Limited Edition bike, which only a very few lucky people world wide will have the chance of owning.

HUGO DUFRESE SIGNS A TWO-YEAR CONTRACT EXTENSION WITH VERTIGO

Vertigo has secured a contract extension of young French talent Hugo Dufrese, who will remain as part of the Factory Team through to 2022.

Despite 2020 being his rookie campaign in the highly competitive Trial2 class of the TrialGP World Championship, Dufrese showed promising glimpses of his great potential by scoring five Top 10 results over the year, with a 5th at the season finale in Italy as a season’s best. The Frenchman will definitely be ready to mix it up with the heavy hitters of the class next year now that he carries a whole year of experience at the helm of the R2.

In France, where he competed in the premier class of the National Championship, he delivered another strong run of results to take 3rd in the overall standings after recording three podiums out of three races.

Vertigo would also like to announce that Lorenzo Gandola won’t continue on green machinery in 2021. The whole team thanks Lorenzo for the two years he has spent under the awning and wishes him good luck in his next chapter.

With a total of four podiums and an impressive third place in the overall standings, this is by far, the best results for Vertigo in the premier class since the green brand entered the World Championship.

As well as all of these personal settings the bike is loaded with a wealth of high-end racing components.  The new black with gold details Tech Factory spec forks in combination with the multi adjustable 3 way Reiger rear shock provide extremely smooth and responsive feedback to the rider whilst also allowing any rider to further fine tune their suspension set up depending on their individual riding style.

The stainless steel exhaust is engraved with Jaime’s personal logo and the silencer has a striking matt black finish which help set it aside from all other models in the Vertigo range.

The airbox is again the new design carried over from the R2 and 21 Works models which helps to greatly increase engine performance at higher revs. It is also much more rigid and slimmer than previous models giving the bike a leaner and more aggressive look. The two position mapping switch incorporated into the airbox allows the rider to easily and instantly switch between Jaime’s two most versatile personal maps.

A new high compression cylinder head together with a carbonfiber admission tube, which does not flex and thus helps increase engine performance and which is also unique to this model, along with the Vertigo intercooler, all help to contribute to the extremely high performance of this model.

The Renthal bars, anodised in black on this model, have always been Jaime’s own personal choice of handle bar. These Renthal bars are clamped into the all new billet machined, ultra lightweight triple clamps which themselves are also finished in anodised black and are again unique to this new model.

Vertigo’s signature multitubular design frame has a stunning fluo-red finish which contrasts nicely with the black anodised wheel rims, and matching fluo-red wheel hubs the bike is fitted with Vertigo’s own design alloy footrests together with 0.5cm lowered footrest supports for increased stability.

Whilst the carbon-fibre engine case guards, as well as protecting vulnerable parts of the engine help to add to the factory look of this bike. 

The new textured red, white, black and green graphics give a very youthful and aggressive look to the bike. Which is of course very fitting to Jaime’s personal character. 

You will also find Jaime’s own signature prominently displayed on the new airbox cover. And to finish off and leave no one in doubt as to who’s replica bike this is, each Jaime Busto Replica bike will come with its own Limited Edition engraved metal plate and custom Busto work matt.

The Vertigo Factory will produce only 75 exclusive units for World Wide distribution. 

Therefore this model is a true Limited Edition bike, and as close as you can get to a full factory bike, which only a few lucky people World Wide will have the chance of owning.

HISTORIC WEEKEND FOR VERTIGO AT TRIALGP ITALY

Last TrialGP of the 2020 season held in Italy over the weekend will be written in gold letters in the Vertigo record book as one of the most special ones of its history, as in the same weekend, the brand celebrated its first World Title thanks to Pau Martínez while placing Busto and Dignan inside the Championship Top 3 to score the best ever results for the Spanish manufacturer in the World Championship.
 
With the aim to keep his 3rd position in the Championship standings, Jaime Busto kicked off the Italian event with an outstanding 3rd place in the opening day. The Spaniard held a race-long battle for 2nd but in the end, a five on section 11, dropped him down to the third step of the box. On Sunday punctuations got closer and Busto had to settle for 7th, gaps between riders were so little that he was only 2 marks away from third. In the general standings he finishes 3rd in a phenomenal season that has witnessed the duo Vertigo-Busto confirm as one of the strongest teams in the paddock having proved their competitiveness in all kind of soils and weather conditions with a total of four podiums.

In Trial2 Hugo Dufrese posted his best result of the season on day 2 with a sensational 5th place. The rookie bounced back from a tough Saturday in which he struggled to show his true potential, but on Sunday he impressed with an amazing display of his unique technique, he fought against more experienced riders and was able to keep up with the pace throughout the entire trial to put a great end to the 2020 campaign and by the way, prove he has a bright future ahead.

Lorenzo Gandola, who was racing on home soil this weekend, ended his 2020 World Championship season on a high with a 7th place on Sunday and a 10th in the General Standings. The Italian has been amongst the Trial2 heavy hitters throughout the series and only some details in several races have prevented him from getting a podium this year.

The 2020 campaign has put Vertigo right to the spotlight of the Trial125 class. A total of three riders have recorded podium finishes throughout the calendar staring from Pau Martínez himself. The newly crowned World Champion has been dominant all year long with five victories, two second places and a 4th in Italy day 2. Ben Dignan completed this historic season for Vertigo with a 3rd place in the Championship, which he celebrated on the second step of the box on Sunday. The previous day he rounded out the Top 5. Pau Dinarés posted a 7th and 12th.
 
This has been the most successful season in the World Championship for Vertigo, representing a huge boost of motivation for the Spanish manufacturer in terms of continuing to work with its riders to fight for even more ambitious goals in the coming years. 

VERTIGO AND PAU MARTÍNEZ, 2020 TRIAL125 WORLD CHAMPIONS

Historic day for Vertigo at TrialGP Italy, where Pau Martínez was crowned today Trial125 World Champion by clinching his fifth victory of the season.

Despite knowing he had great options of wrapping-up the title today, Martínez didn’t let pressure get to him and already in the opening lap he was leading the trial with a considerable gap ahead of Canales. It was just another dominant day at the office for Martínez, who pushed even harder in the following laps to drop his marks and keep a solid lead. He ended up 4 points ahead of Canales to celebrate his first World Title on the top step of the box.

With Guiraud taking 4th place, the only one who still had options to fight for the title, Martínez was able to certify the first ever World Title for Vertigo with still one round to go. Jaime Busto completed a stunning day for the team with a sensational 3rd place in TrialGP.

VERTIGO CELEBRATES A SUCCESSFUL WEEKEND OF INTERNATIONAL RACING

Vertigo Factory riders proved over the weekend they continue in top form as they got to the podium of some of the most competitive National Championships. In Spain, Jaime Busto delivered two outstanding performances in Ripoll, specially on day 1, in which the Spaniard clinched an impressive victory over Raga and Casales. On day 2 he battled again for the top spot to finally record another podium finish with a third place.

The current Trial125 World Championship leader Pau Martínez left Ripoll with a pair of great third places in the TR2 class, while Berta Abellán won the Women A class on both days and grabbed two Top 10 finishes in TR3, 9th on day 1 and 8th on day 2.

In France Hugo Dufrese stepped on the podium for the third time this year in the premier class with yet another second place finish. Despite the trial being held in heavy weather conditions, the youngster managed to hang on to that second spot despite receiving the pressure from TrialGP rider Benoit Bincaz.

Timo Myöhänen wrapped-up his ninth National Championship in Finland, the fifth one on a Vertigo after completing another dominant season in the series. Lorenzo Gandola fought hard to get to the Italian Championship Top 3, the former Trial125 World Champion ended up 4th on day 1 just one mark away from the third place. On Sunday a big crash on section 8 costed him valuable points, but was able to bounce back to finally round out the Top 5.

Vertigo Factory riders will continue their training programs with their eyes set on the 2020 TrialGP World Championship showdown set to take place in Italy in two weeks time.
