Our enthusiasm is reflected in our development results. Our 60-strong motorcycle team covers the entire spectrum, from preliminary motorcycle development through to series development and production support. Apart from carrying out the development tasks (concept development, design, simulation, function development, testing), we also manufacture prototype parts and vehicles, which we can subsequently validate using our test equipment. The high quality of the engineering in more than 100 different projects that have now been handled has earned the EDAG Motorcycle Team an outstanding reputation in the market for motorcycle service providers, and, working as general developers, the team has taken projects to series production with huge success.
In Development/Design, we make sure that components, assemblies, modules, and even complete vehicles are created in accordance with customers' expectations. We use all standard programs and development methods to implement our aims and customers' ideas.
Our design studio, surface operations and physical models specialists ensure that conclusive motorcycle concepts result, and we then apply our innovative strength and method skills to realise these. We come up with far-sighted, unusual and extraordinary solutions that are characterised by a well-developed feeling for material, technical and technological trends, market relevance and future consumer and customer requirements.
Whether we use virtual or physical methods, components or complete vehicles, test systems or material testing in our own accredited test laboratory - we can come up with the right solution, and give you early, conclusive and validated feedback from real-life scenarios.more
We optimise your vehicle with the aim of achieving optimum performance and minimum weight with regard to the following attributes:
- Stiffness, stability and misuse
- Vibration and acoustics
- Operational strength and fatigue resistance
- Vehicle dynamics
- Vehicle safety
- Structure design regarding crashworthiness
- Flow simulations (e.g. aerodynamics and water management)
We check your motorcycle or individual components in order to either verify virtual development, or identify any weak spots that might not yet have been discovered.
- Life cycle and functional testing
- Durability testing
- Rigidity measurements
- Environmental simulation
- Safety testing
- Electrics / electronics testing
- Test stand development and construction
- 3D coordinate measuring technology
With today's highly complex motorcycles, a great many processes are involved in the successful transition from development to series. Our team is involved in the following activities:
- Quality management process
- Approval process
- Change process
Our test team plans, organises and carries out all types of testing. With a pool of highly professional test riders coupled with very experienced engineers using the latest measuring technology and test equipment, we carry out the following trials and tests for our customers:
- Endurance testing / validation on race tracks and public roads
- Chassis and geometrical testing
- Coordination of traction and control systems
- Performance tests
- Tyre approval
- Application of traction and control systems
Regardless of whether the customer requires a complete prototype or just one component, our prototype construction and low-volume engineering department can manufacture all motorcycle components in all standard manufacturing processes. In our VPC (Vehicle Prepare Centre), we then construct a complete vehicle from the individual components – for everything from a single test vehicle to a low-volume series.
