Vertigo Nitro RS: the new benchmark
The main improvements to the RS are non-motor related innovations, as the engine has undergone no major modifications given its proven reliability: the Nitro’s electronic injection-fuelled engine has proven to be one of the most powerful in each of its various displacements. It features a removable clutch cover, one of the great mechanical innovations in trial over recent times.
And that is not all. The main feature of the new models is the rear suspension. The two-way Reiger shock absorber (three-way on the RSR) delivers superior performance thanks to its new Vertigo-designed linkage system, which was one of the key components in last season’s successes. Having proven its effectiveness, it has now been incorporated into the production series, equipping the new RS and RSR from their inception.
Lastly, the chassis also features machined aluminium brake callipers as well as footpegs, plus a 6mm sump guard. The rims are anodised in red and the hubs are also machined in silver.
The trim of these Vertigo Nitro RS and RSR is quite simply, stunning. The snakeskin not only gives a racing look, but also protects the swingarm, fork and subframe from scratches and bumps.
RSR Exclusive – £9349.99
Fittingly, the new Nitro RS also comes in a more ‘Racing’ version – the Nitro RSR – with certain elements that improve upon the RS performance even further: new Tech Factory-made forks in exclusive Kashima Gold, a titanium exhaust manifold and carbon fibre engine guards as well as the new linkage system exclusive to the series.
Vertigo Nitro RS and RSR, cutting edge technology, high quality trial bikes.
The Nitro RS and RSR will soon be available in 125cc, 225cc, 250cc and 300cc.
