    New for '04, the eagerly awaited Vertemati S450E Electric Start. As with all the road registered Vertemati bikes, the S450E becomes a very serious option, for anyone considering a new Supermoto bike, due to the fact that unlike many other Supermoto bikes on the market, specifically the japanese machines, the Vert is offered as a fully road legal, type approved road bike. Not as an off road bike that you have to expensively convert with new wheels & brakes, then pay even more to fit the 'road legal kit'. One of the reasons this is done is because typically, a full warranty is not given with off road bike, so some manufacturers want to be part of the Supermoto market, by making it possible to adapt their Enduro machines, but then market their bike as a 'kit' to avoid giving a decent warranty!

    Think about this, the Vertemati is aimed at the top end of the market and will cost a few hundred pounds more than many other bikes on the market, but the level of spec, quality components & the 2 year warranty actually means that the Vertemati represents excellent value for money when compared with other machines.

    "....we reckon it easily justifies the price tag. Take into account the Vertemati's fine level of innovative engineering matched to an exclusivity that is impossible to evaluate & the Vertemati is actually something of a bargain. Don't believe me ? Just try and build a Supermoto bike using the same high quality kit and we think you'll be suprised at the final cost...."
