Ohvale Srl is excited to announce its new partnership with American ex-MotoGP racer John “Hopper” Hopkins and Partners Matt Dill & John Louch from The W Training Facility, who have officially formed JMJ Moto to take over Ohvale USA and now be in charge of distribution in the U.S.

JMJ Moto have very exciting plans & fresh, new ideas already in the works to enhance visibility in the U.S. and finally start to show Americans what is classified by most as the #1 MiniGP Race Motorcycle around the world! Those plans will include:

Large investments to enhance Promotion (largely targeting & infiltrating the very successful Motocross Industry within the U.S.).

Stocking & Shipping all Bikes/Parts here within the U.S. to enhance Orders & Delivery for fast, efficient service.

Showroom & Flagship Dealership based in the heart of Southern California handling on-site Bikes/Parts sales with the intention to expand nationwide.

Riding Events/Exhibitions, Academy’s & Rider/Racer Camps including “Camp21” will be set up in addition to the continued collaboration with the American Racing Academy to attract New Riders & Competitively enhance Racers (all ages & skill levels)

Most importantly, plans to improve the FIM MiniGP US Series to make it more accessible & affordable to participants across the country and increase cooperation with MotoAmerica’s competitions.

John Hopkins: “I’m truly honored to be given this opportunity by Ohvale & to have such great partners by my side helping to make it all happen. Getting to play a big role in potentially changing the sport (here in the U.S.) for the better has always been the biggest dream of mine! Without help from many throughout my young career, I would’ve never dreamed of becoming a professional racer let alone successfully racing in MotoGP. This is the way I finally get to give back in a big way & I couldn’t be more excited!! There’s NO shortage of talent on 2 wheels in America, now we just need to get them riding Ohvale’s with a good plan in place to do so…”

Valerio Da Lio, CEO of Ohvale: “I consider this new partnership with John Hopkins and his associates another important step forward for Ohvale projects, given their extensive experience in the motorsport industry. I am confident that the collaboration between Ohvale and JMJ Moto will provide a genuine opportunity for many young Americans to participate in a real professional growth path. Ohvale stands out for its choice of single-brand motorcycles, equals for everyone, aiming to enhance the capabilities and skills of the rider. Ohvale embodies the dream of achieving a rewarding sports experience and becoming a professional rider in world competitions.”
