Vertigo is proud to present the Nitro, its new and evolved trials bike for the 2022 season. The Nitro, as the successor to the acclaimed Combat, brings together all the experience accumulated by the brand in World Championship races and with it, Vertigo continues to lead the technological evolution in trials with the most complete motorcycle that the brand has manufactured to date.
The Nitro will be available from the usual Vertigo dealer network in 125cc, 250cc and 300cc Euro5 homologated and competition versions, as well as 200cc competition only versions.
THE NITRO IS VIRTUALLY AN ENTIRELY NEW MOTORCYCLE THANKS TO THE EVOLUTION OF THE FOLLOWING ALL NEW COMPONENTS
The Nitro’s new multi tubular chassis, is the result of hours of racing development, giving the new Vertigo superior agility and handling capabilities. Other advancements include a new micro-fusion shock mount, optimally positioning this essential component on the Nitro. The new and now unrestricted rear wheel travel, coupled with the new shock mount provide a greatly improved functionality and suspension feel over previous models.
REDISTRIBUTION OF ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS
The Nitro places each of its electrical components in an optimal location, with two clear objectives; achieve the necessary cooling and improved accessibility. All electrical components are now protected, but also highly accessible, making maintenance tasks a simple and efficient process.
Another important advancement of the Nitro, is the all new silencer. The distinctive new silencer improves the thermodynamic performance, reduces engine braking, whilst also allowing an additional 5cm of suspension travel, over previous models. Another major advantage is the removable end-cap, which allows for easy repacking of the silencer.
NEW FUEL TANK
The new fuel tank allows you to take advantage of 100% of its capacity. Filling will be safer with the Nitro, thanks to the design of a new tank which prevents the spillage of fuel towards the electrical components of the engine. The tank has also been repositioned slightly forward compared to previous models, helping to improve weight distribution and thus stability. Vertigo’s innovative and unique positioning of the fuel tank keeps weight low and centrally located, therefore providing superior stability and traction over any other trials motorcycle available.
NEW WATER PUMP
The Nitro has a completely new water pump, more compact yet with a higher flow efficiency. This new pump is now also repositioned at the lowest point in the coolant circuit, meaning the system is now self bleeding, resulting in a more efficient cooling system.
NEW ENGINE SKID PLATE
The Nitro has a new high-strength 7075 Aluminium skid plate. It is designed to offer maximum protection, to the engine and the new location of components.
NEW REAR BRAKE SYSTEM
The Nitro incorporates a new rear brake hose, which is more efficient and the positioning of which facilitates quick exchange of the complete brake system, as well as improved access to the clutch of the Nitro.
The all new rear mudguard, seat base and air box cover have been developed to give a more aggressive, racing appearance to the bike whilst also im-proving the riders mobility. They are also no longer affected by heat transfer from other components of the bike, and therefore always keep their original form.
The new Nitro has undergone a rigorous development programme, our team of engineers working closely with Jaime Busto, have been developing the bike during the past 12 months whilst competing in the FIM TrialGP World Championship, and other prestigious events and championships. The already revolutionary and technologically advanced two-stroke fuel injection Vertigo has progressed to a whole new level, and is now even further ahead of the opposition than ever before! If you demand the ultimate in technology, performance and quality this is the bike for you.
