Vortex is the world leader in the manufacturing of the competition two-stroke engines, and we own solid and tested experience in the field. Our production process will allow to gain top-level quality standards concerning 4-stroke engines, thanks to many quality checks and high-precision machinery.
 The 4 stroke engine produces lower noise and pollution than other kind of engine units. We wish to draw your attention also to the environmental-friendly significant aspect which has been becoming more and more important in the motorsport field.
Our factory is taking over a valid project today, conceived by the Technique Engineering, which will be further developed according to definite working steps already used in the manufacturing of any Vortex product.

“We embarked on the new path of the new 4 stroke engine with strong passion, supported by the know-how that could make us face this new adventure with the inning spirit. The acquisition of this project is allowing us to largely widen the range of karting engines. No other manufacturers are able to offer such a varied range of products addressed to a homogeneous public of drivers. The 4 stroke engine has been added and completes our already winning range of engines”
