Motorcycle & Recreational vehicles
How different are the challenges of motorcycles, ski scooters and quads compared to traditional cars?
Driving on only two wheels, it is obvious that stability for motorbikes is completely different. But there is more. Some bikes are designed to be long-distance cruisers, which mean they have more stability on straight tracks, but are harder to turn. Sports bikes on the contrary are engineered to be more flexible in making quick turns, but are as a consequence less stable to ride in a straight line.
Designing and developing a recreational vehicle means balancing characteristics such as handling, sound, comfort and safety to shape the unique character of a motorcycle or 4 wheel recreational vehicle. LMS is widely experienced at partnering up with manufacturers and suppliers to help them meet development challenges such as optimization of the suspension for handling, chassis and frame durability, balancing sound quality and pass-by noise, balancing handling versus comfort and keeping steering vibration under control.
- “I was impressed by LMS’ methodology and engineering know-how. The software was extremely user-friendly and yet powerful enough to analyze the noise problems we were facing.” - Husqvarna
- "Since the unit operates on centrifugal force, using LMS Virtual.Lab Motion is of considerable value in accurately representing the masses and inertia of these complex components – as well as all the interrelated physics of the mechanism. In a few hours we obtained detailed load data that could not have been produced from weeks of prototype testing." - Artic Cat
- “Our most important assets at Harley-Davidson are our employees and the expertise and passion they have for the product. LMS technology lets us leverage those assets in delivering the legendary riding experience our customers expect and deserve.” - Harley-Davidson
