In 2019,while watching a race, businessman and motorcyle enthusiast Alvin Nazal’s attention was caught by small yet powerful motorcycle driven by a renowned rider.
He knew at that moment that he wanted to bring it to the Philippines. Upon checking out the bike, he fell in love with Ohvale, an Italian brand created by racing bike expert , Valerio Da Lio. fact that it’s built by an industry expert with an experience of over 30 years in the motorcycle world convinced Nazal to not waste any time in bringing the Ohvale brand to the Philippines.
After a couple of meetings with Ohvale in Italy, Nazal through his company Kidd Code Racing was awarded the exclusive distributorship of Ohvale in the Philippines. His big aspiration for the brand and bike afficionados came into completion when this magnificent MiniGP bikes finally arrived in 2020 in the country. Nazal wants to squeeze the throttle, make the experience itself more thrilling than ever, and bring riding to the next level. Of course, safety is a must for the rider, the riding community and the public.
“Most riders would like to be a racer or at least be like one, but most of them are still inexperienced and needs to be educated about the right motorcycle that will suit their needs,” he said.
Ohvale is a MiniGP bike with the attitude of a superbike that boasts of almost all of the technical know-how and design touches of a full-sized race bike, just smaller in form. Ohvales are built for tracks since it has no side mirrors, signal lights and even motor horn.
“These MiniGP bikes, with their purposeful, accessible and playful ergonomics, allow for the extreme riding style of a real racing bike while dramatically reducing the costs and transport inconveniences related to track riding. Every component has been carefully designed for this purpose, giving priority to refinement, robustness and riders´ feedback. The truly passionate motorcycle enthusiasts will fall in love on the careful construction and finishing touches of this bike.”
The OHVALE first came out with GP-0, the result of a careful industrialisation that blends with refined craftsmanship. To fulfil the OHVALE GP-0 dream, its maker, Da Lio, teamed up with many great people in the motorcycle industry known for their extraordinary abilities and highly technical experience. One in particular is engineer Mariano Fioravanzo. The worldwide reputation of this team represents the best guarantee of design excellence of this mini supersport bike.
It also boasts of Ohvale GP-2, equipped with a light but durable frame and slightly larger 12” wheels. It’s powered by the same 190cc, four-speed, four-stroke engine that came out in its introductory years but retaining an ample 20bhp or so to help the rider live out his MotoGP fantasies from childhood.
More importantly, for those who want to practice seriously or improve their riding skills, or race with great satisfaction in any circuit or track, Ohvale is the way to go. This Italian brand is considered the breeding ground of pro racers and champions.
“World champions are training with Ohvale; This bike is used by pro racers and champions like Valentino Rossi, Francesco Bagnaia, Marco Bezzecchi, Jack Miller and Marc Marquez to name a few. And now that it is available in the Philippines, professional riders and those who want to upgrade their skills can train with Ohvale,” Nazal said.
Ohvale, A Family Affair That Kids Love
The fact that it can only be used in tracks, Nazal stressed that these Ohvales could be the next big thing for kids who love to be in motor sports. This is another reason he is in love with Ohvale, knowing that kids can now really take pleasure in living their dream to ride a real motorbike.
“Obviously, motor bikes are now also gaining popularity among women and they welcome the idea of riding as a form of family bonding. With this growing trend, Ohvale can be the new toy of the family.”
“Ohvale is a safe MiniGP superbike which can be enjoyed by the whole family from the dad, mom up to the kids as young as eight years old while riding on tracks, a controlled environment where safety is always the no. 1 priority.”
“When we started selling Ohvale, I realized that parents are now more open to the idea that their kids are adventurous and willing to try new things. And to support our customers ,we have designed a program that will help and develop them to be the best and responsible rider.”
