  1. Had a 2019 model, Vertigo 300. Bought a demo model with 10 hours on it, immaculate, without a scratch. Sold it after 12 months after repeated and expensive problems. Other riders with 2018/2019 model put 500 hours on their bikes without any problem, so I guess it was just bad luck on my side, but I preferred to switch to a simple, cheap and easy to fix bike like TRS. Oh, by the way,the Vertigo rode great, when it was fixed.
  2. 300 R with black slow throttle for me, just perfect. Smooth at the bottom but plenty of power as I'm kind of on the heavy side (90 kg)... Never tried a TRS 250 though, they're kind of rare here in Italy.
  3. The 2020 R model has been available for at least a couple of months now.
  4. I also had a 2019 Vertigo. I confirm what @the dabster said. I also had a Montesa 4rt and you definetely have to put more energy in the way you kick.. Lot more strenght. What I never solved was the tendency of my 2019 Vertigo kickstarter lever to not fully return to the upright position... Tried changing the oil seal, tried greasing it, tried degreasing it, tried filing down the kickstart shaft with ultra fine sandpaper... But nothing helped. It improved a little when the engine got hot.... Go figure.
  5. Vertigo went batteryless in 2017 and never looked back... Everybody says this way the bike starts much better. I would update the system to the batteryless harness instead...

    Vertical R 2020

    Still, too many colors... Other than that, I'm sure it will be a wonderful riding machine...
  7. I also had the chance to ride the new E Pure race model today, and I feel exactly like you did! Having a conventional hydraulic clutch is a major advantage, it makes you feel right at home! Stabily, maneuvrability and the extra precise throttle response gives mega traction. I basically used only the soft map, the racing/red map was brutal, the bike would pop into a wheelie with only a little turn of the throttle... Only for pros! They really did a great job, the improvement is unbelievable.... Top end model with top components is said to be around 10.000€...

    TRRS 2020 model

    I saw it in person at the EICMA fair in Milan... It is actually an orangeish kind of red. Looks better when you see it in person!

    250 or 300

    Vertigo spare parts are sooo expensive... You could do that but it would cost an arm and a leg. For a couple of € you can buy a slow action throttle, or have your bike mapped differently.

    Not quite yet but I'm working on it.... The help from this forum is unbeatable!

    Yes, @steviet you are correct. My motorbike had a much bigger problem, which was fixed, several parts were changed under warranty after speaking with the aftersales department in Spain. Now the bike runs almost perfect and I figure it would be "part of the game" to fine tune it to make it run like I think it is the correct way. It's a learning process which I find very interestig and amusing. But you are correct, I should not be forced to buy the tuning device... And I am not :-) It's like a game to me, albeit an expensive one :-( @tcrhino I only lightly spray with Motorex filter oil like I did for the past several years, so I doubt that could be the problem....

    Yes, I've seen the promotional video from Vertigo but that's just that, a promotional video, I was hoping for an instruction manual to come with the device. If that's not the case, you just gave me a very nice tip! Thanks again @lowbrow

    Very interesting. That's the kind of informations I was looking for and couldn't find anywhere. Off I go to spend my 260€ ? Thank you @lowbrow

    Hello all, has anyone bought and experimented with the Athena Wificom for 2018/2019 Vertigo? I was thinking about buying the device, as my 2019 Vertical 300 keeps running rich even on dry map, the spark plug gets sooty and overall the bike feels like it's running too rich at high revs (four stroking). Air filter is always clean, tried different new spark plugs, fuel is 100 octane, fresh, 0,5% Motul 800 oil. Dealer says bike is ok, which is 99,5% true, but I was thinking about turning the "carburation " leaner with the Wificom device. Any experience/advice? Thanks in advance!
  15. Perfect! Thanks a lot @tcrhino!!
