TEST BED FOR TWO WHEELS
ALTHOUGH WE BUILT OUR REPUTATION ON FOUR WHEELS, OUR HIGH-TECH WIND TUNNELS ARE ALSO ABLE TO BRING HIGH PERFORMANCE TO MOTORCYCLES TOO. OUR SPECIALLY-DESIGNED PLATFORM GIVES RACE OR ROAD BIKE MANUFACTURERS THE CHANCE TO ANALYSE AND ENHANCE AERODYNAMIC PERFORMANCE, RIDER COMFORT OR SAFETY AND WIND NOISE LEVELS.
Our unique motorbike platform offers the possibility to test any motorbike with a real or a dummy rider, or even without a rider, in straight line or in yaw conditions with speeds up to 65m/s. The platform, fully designed in-house, consists of stainless steel rollers for the front and rear axle in an adjustable lay-out to accommodate different wheelbases.
The bike is attached to the platform via our height-adjustable restrain system mounted to the wheel shaft. For measurements in yaw conditions, the entire platform is designed as a turntable that can be moved by 180° either side.
In combination with extra tools such as the measurement probe arm, thermal conditioning unit or fog generator, pressure, temperature and airflow can be determined and visualised at any position to improve the aero performance of the bike, as well as comfort and noise level for the rider.
