The VUN Homepage

I discovered a neat website last night: the VUN Homepage (www.vun.it). This is an interactive Flash web page which, I'm guessing, was developed for CR&S soon after the VUN went into production. It is available in four languages: Italian, Milanese, Spanish, French and English.

Web pages like this one are time consuming (and expensive) to maintain. It looks like the last updates to this site were in 2007, nevertheless this is a fun and informative site to play with.

As you move your mouse around, detailed images and information appear about the area you are pointing at. There is a neat Configurator section that lets you customize the VUN interactively and view the results. There are also hundreds of excellent photos and a detailed history of the formation of CR&S and the VUN motorcycle.

This site offers an excellent insight into the VUN and the philosophy and concepts that inspired and influenced its creation.
