    New for '04, the eagerly awaited Vertemati Enduro 450 with electric start. Although we did obtain a handful of 450E's (all sold!)the main batch will arrive during August. This 450 Enduro machine is bristling with innovation & quality & the E450E delivers on all fronts. It rides superb, with an abundance of torquey power good for climbing and fast steering while on the throttle. The light weight and excellent WP suspension compliment the engine's serious performance, giving a rapid but suprisingly well mannered package, Ridden fast or slow, the E450 will give a great day's riding

    The main critism of many other Enduro machines is that although some may have more than enough performance, they more than often are let down through a lack of torque and poor suspension which lets the whole package down. Most other machines are built to a budget and obviously there will have to be a compromise somewhere. i.e. Excellent engine - poor chassis, or Decent suspension/components, but let down by a heavy outdated and underpowered engine....sound familiar?

    This is where the Vertemati comes into it's own. Break the bike down in to different sections and ask if each part of the bike is up to the job......

    Engine - Superb, Powerful (Torquey) Lightweight, modern design with many new innovations !!

    Chassis - Light, Very Strong Chrome Moly Frame, Quick Steering, excellent feedback !!

    Components- Read the list ...Top of the range WP Suspension, Talon, Brembo, Braking, LeoVince etc,etc. Get the picture!

    Many current owners of DRZ's, WR's & even KTM 400's are looking next for something fast & powerful with electric start & quality suspension. Something a little bit more exclusive, a name associated with quality, performance and class. This is the bike that can tackle most conditions well. If you compete in Enduro or Hare & Hounds events, but also like blazing the trails during your other weekends, you need a bike that can take any condtion in it's stride, a good all round package.

    Look no further than the Vertemati E450E.
