Praise to the lightness and innovation

“Simplify, then add lightness.” - Colin Chapman

In order to optimize and emphasize the news and technique innovations, faithful to the Vins philosophy which is represented with the Colin Chapman famous words “Simplify, then add lightness”, an ultra-light motorcycle in carbon fiber composites born, entirely hand-made, where the artisan work match the most advanced techniques. The most significant are the innovative 2 strokes engine with fuel injection, the front fork with double overlapped triangles, the carbon fiber monocoque chassis with the integrated front node and the aerodynamic study, which use the original radiator position. 

History

The start

When passion bring to the innovation

Starting from a little garage in 2013, Vincenzo Mattia – actual CEO of Vins and Ferrari employ at that time – “sacrify” his own CAgiva Mito 125 for his experiments and ideas in honour of the God of Speed. The very first engine designed and in other structural particulars, was possible to note what would have been the layout of the future Vins motorcycle. Into his garage Vincenzo build himself also a hoven to cook the first parts in carbon fiber.

Initially alone with his self-financed project, he was later supported by his actual business partners and friends whom have contributed to build and develop the first motorcycle. The people who joined the project were Vincenzo Doino (actual responsable of lamination and machining department), Giuseppe Evangelista (Mechanical engineer and technical bureau director), Davide Perino (CFO) and Nicola Trentani (Design director).

In the first year the V-twin two strokes engine was designed and builded with a carburettor, then the first dynamic test has followed on a Cagiva Mito chassis.

In 2014 the completely Vins motorcycle became a reality and the Cagiva chassis was abandoned. Thanks to the fundamental help of the professor Enrico Nino (Physical laboratory of UNIBAS University of Potenza) was applied the fuel injection system, indispensable for a modern project and to have a completely control of the engine development.

Thanks to their innovative connotation, at the Eicma fair in 2015 was unveiled in world premier the first “Powerlight” prototype and, in 2016, the bike was awarded by the German Design Council for the best design during the Motorcycle Brand Contest concourse, category “under 100kg”. In the same year, thanks to the experience of Attilio Giuliani (sixth member of the society), were started the procedures to found the Vins srl.
