After many months of development, testing, refinement and success at the highest level of competition the moment has recently come for the Vertigo Combat production model to be unveiled to the World less than a year after the prototype version was first revealed in Milan late last year. The beautiful setting of the Hotel Puig Franco – puigfranco.es – Camprodon, Spain that sits within the grounds of the amazing Noassar training area was chosen as the location to share this important occasion as distributors and media were invited to the official launch that took place over two days, which included packed programmes for the interested visitors.
The guests were treated to a gourmet dinner on arrival and the chance to enjoy a night in one of the carefully selected ‘Trial World Champion named bedrooms’ at the Hotel Puig Franco before the real activities got underway.
On each of the two days, the guests comprising of a mixed party of both distributors and media were split into their relevant groups so that they could enjoy and experience the two distinctive parts of the carefully planned schedule. Whilst one group headed to the surrounding mountains to get their first ride on the Vertigo Combat in several different types of sections that included a good variety of terrain, the other group were treated to a technical master class delivered by Vertigo Engineer Manager Francesc Romani.
Feedback from both distributors and media from all the major international specialist publications and websites from as far afield as Mexico and Australia, after testing the Vertigo Combat production model was extremely positive. From the remarks and comments offered, the easy riding nature of the bike and the exceptional quality / attention to detail were the most often repeated words.
Whilst the actual riding experience exceeded expectations, equally the opportunity to see the compact, two stroke fuel injection engine dismantled and explained in detail in front of their very eyes in such close proximity also brought high praise from the extremely knowledgeable assembled audience as each and every part was presented for close inspection.
With brand ambassador Dougie Lampkin, factory riders James Dabill and Francesc Moret plus other members of the Vertigo team on hand to assist, the guests were able to fully enjoy the passion and experience that remains at the heart of the Vertigo family that is now growing at pace.
Speaking about the huge success of the event Vertigo Motors Sales Manager – Xavi Vilalta explained. “It has been amazing to have the opportunity to bring our valued distributors and the associated media from the various countries to Camprodon not only for them to enjoy and learn more about the Vertigo Combat production model, but to also experience the Hotel Puig Franco and Noassar training area.
“Whilst the quality and performance of the Combat speaks for itself, we are confident that our official launch event has also confirmed much more about Vertigo as a premium brand and how we intend to bring this to market.”
“With the initial test bikes now being delivered to the various distributors, and the first production models to follow shortly and over the coming months, we at Vertigo Motors are all very excited about this next and important chapter of the company and are sure that the Vertigo Combat will be well received and enjoyed by every customer that choses to join our special family.”
