Vehicle engineering support for heritage brand
16 November 2015

Ricardo was contracted to work with a major motorcycle OEM to expand their fast-growing heritage product range, providing engineering support. This work involved both powertrain and vehicle development activities with new classic and café racer models.

Our responsibilities included durability improvements for both engine and chassis, refinement, powertrain refinement improvements, general product quality improvement initiatives with resident on-site engineers, and concept and detailed design definition of the new classic and café racer models.

These new bikes met their performance and brand image requirements, and were successfully launched into production on time.
