JTG – a new brand of bikes

It takes some balls to start a bike firm in the current economy...

A new name has appeared in the world of bikes – JTG. Short for Jotagas, it's a new Spanish firm that's planning to release two bikes this spring.

The firm is aiming at the trials and enduro markets, and will have one offering in each segment on sale soon. It claims the enduro will be a sub-100kg, electric start 250cc machine with programmable engine mapping, although the firm hasn't revealed detailed specifications. The trials model will be a 300cc machine weighing just 65kg. Both bikes are entirely developed by Jotagas, including bespoke engines.

Although at the moment the only pictures are computer-generated mock-ups, the firm plans to have real machines ready by April this year.
