It’s just possible that the worlds coolest flat trackers come from Italy, not USA or UK. Just look at the Italian “techno-magneso” anti-corodal 6082 billet aluminum frame detail on this machine. It was fashioned with help from a group of ex-MotoGP engineers who call themselves In-Motion. Located in Bologna, In-Motion develops and produces new parts, as they did with the Zaeta’s frame, swingarm, triple-clamps, hubs and rims.
Graziano Rossi (Valentino’s dad) is a firm believer in Vale sliding around on dirt in the winter to maintain his fitness. The first Zaeta was engineered for none other than the doctor himself, with geometry taken from a J&M frame and power supplied by a Yamaha YZ450F (video evidence at www.valentinorossi.com).
