2022 NITRO WORKS

Vertigo is proud to present the Nitro, it’s 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 and 280cc competition only versions.

NEW CHASSIS

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 in 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.

  • SUPERIOR AGILITY
  • IMPROVED FUNCTIONALITY
  • NEW SHOCK MOUNTING POINT

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.

  • ACCESSIBILITY
  • LOWER OPERATING TEMPERATURE
  • PLUG & PLAY COMPONENTS

NEW SILENCER

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 12mm of suspension travel, over previous models. Another major advantage is the removable end cap, which allows for easy repacking of the silencer.

  • IMPROVED SUSPENSION TRAVEL
  • REDUCED HEAT TRANSFER TO ALL COMPONENTS
  • INTERCHANGEABLE FIBERS
  • REDUCED ENGINE BRAKING

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.

  • GREATER USEFUL CAPACITY
  • ALLOWS FOR FITMENT OF LARGER DIAMETER SHOCKS
  • IMPROVED WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION AND STABILITY

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.

  • SELF-BLEEDING
  • GREATER EFFICIENCY
  • MORE COMPACT (IMPROVED PROTECTION)
  • IMPROVED ACCESSIBILITY

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.

  • GREATER PROTECTION
  • EASILY REMOVED AND REPLACED
  • GREATER DURABILITY

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

  • IMPROVED ACCESSIBILITY TO THE CLUTCH
  • BETTER BRAKING PERFORMANCE
  • QUICK EXCHANGE OF SYSTEM

NEW PLASTICS

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 improving 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.

  • NEW LOWER HEIGHT
  • INCREASED RIDER MOBILITY
  • NEW RACING APPEARANCE
