VENT’s history is recent… but it comes from afar. VENT made its debut in October 2017 acquiring the technical heritage, knowledge and values of MOTO SPA, a company born in 1983 from the passion of a small group of industrialists for two-wheeled vehicles and established itself on the market as a distributor of Honda’s Cross models and, more recently, as a supplier of know-how for Yamaha. Under the HM brand are put on the board 12 World Championships titles between Enduro and Motocross, as well as several Italian titles.
VENT, which today operates in the modern plant of Introbio, in Valsassina (about 6,000 square meters divided over 4 floors), continues the production of 50cc and 125cc motorcycles dedicated to the off-road world, still the reference point of the segment, with the desire to expand its horizon towards innovative sectors in the two-wheeler sector. The professionalism, experience and passion that have always distinguished the company, continues today with an eye increasingly oriented towards sustainable mobility.
In November 2019 the concept of the first e-bike under the VENT brand was unveiled for the first time at EICMA. A project that combines advanced technology for the sector with exclusive design and unique details: so, the LDV500 was born.
VENT as NEW PROJECT, VENT as NEW AIR, VENT as a GEYSER that explodes renewing itself. Thanks to the technical and knowledge heritage built and preserved in over 30 years of history, VENT makes its debut in the field of pedal assisted bicycles, promoting a range of products that can be used both in urban and outdoor environments.
Leonardo Da Vinci writes in his Codex Atlanticus (1495): “In Valsassina, infra Vimognie e Introbbio, a man destra, entrando per via di Lecco, si trova la Trosa, fiume che cade da un sasso altissimo, e cadendo entra sotto terra, e lì finiscie il fiume”.
The wild and wild beauty of the Troggia, which overhangs right next to the VENT headquarters in Introbio, is much more than a simple symbol for the company. Hence the decision to name the launch of the assisted cycling project after Leonardo Da Vinci – who visited and mentioned these places in the Codex Atlanticus – on the five hundredth anniversary of his death. LDV500 is a reference not only to the genius and Italian style but also to the roots and experience of VENT, a project that shows off an attractive frame that combines innovative and original technical solutions with careful attention to design.
