    Does anyone know the msrp for the bike?
    Any dealers close to Chicagoland?

    I would like to get second bike in case I get bored with my 4T

    Thanks

    I would imagine it'll be near 10k, since it's replacing the Camo and the ice hell (although looking at it, it's way more Camo than ice hell). That would leave the Fajardo replica as the factory option at 11k or so, and the titanium model nearing the stratosphere.

    Is there an iphone app for it yet ? They need it to be customer programmable. But maybe the 4 way map switch already covers the desired options.

    Where's the Vandal ?

    The fact that it's got a BT interface is nice, but the chances that there is any freely available software used to interact with it are slim to none I suspect. I'm not clear on whether there's even a documented API (doubtful) so it's not like I can go write something. I could be wrong... I've only taken a cursory look, but the ECU appears to be sourced from an Italian company that just builds motorcycle ECU's.

    Get data is pretty popular in motocross industry especially in Europe
    If iPhone app would work with the Ecu that would be nice
    Pretty much any updates to the bike would be sent to you by dealer and would be easy to download to the bike
    Also additional maps for cost would be nice option

    I like the idea of the vertigo approach.It is refreshing but will take long time be accepted by trials riders...

    I like technology and sometimes like to work on it more then use it.

    Take a long time to be accepted? We've already got three of them being ridden in New England.

    I do not understand the obsession with hooking phones up to everything these days.

    The device is irrelevant... phone, laptop, tablet, whatever. The point is that you can affect tuning changes via the ECU with freely available software. Why would you not want the equivalent of an infinite number of free jets that you can tweak any time you want without having to get your hands dirty?

    The app may be great, may be garbage, or may be a moot point if Vertigo forces the developer to not release it to the public.

    It's already public. Provided whatever ecu vertigo uses is supported, and I can't really see any reason it wouldn't be, it's there to use. It appears to have been under development for over 3 years now, so if it's horrid I'd be surprised. Last update was April this year.

    The good news is that this isn't GET's 1st rodeo. They have been using them in the MX450's. If their module can survive in those vibrating furnaces, a trials bike should be a walk in the park. They have some nice features on them as well, traction control, custom factory maps, much simpler wiring harness, ect... Right now only the dealer can do the re-mapping and every new map is an improvement (still on steep part of the learning curve for Trials FI, but now better in some ways than a carb). This gives the owner total control or they can still have the dealer do it at the trials site if they wish.

    The, right now only the dealer part, is what's up in the air. I hope Vertigo will eventually allow the end users into the ecu. But that potentially opens a pretty big Pandoras box. If they keep it "proprietatry" they eliminate problems before they occur. It's not hard to imagine some chucklehead wannabe tuner hosing up the works fiddling with things they know nothing about. If I'm Mr. Vertigo, I'm going to try to head that off to alleviate problems that could hurt my very expensive brand.
