Bertrandt is the ideal development partner for motorcycles and motor scooters. The focus is initially on design. In the early stage, we use the first design models to specifically derive functions that we develop on the component level to production readiness in accordance with the requirements, and we then transfer them functionally to the complete vehicle.
In our Design, Construction, Electrics/Electronics, Simulation and Testing departments, we not only develop individual components, but can also take on responsibility for the complete vehicle.
Alongside classical design using CAD, our development support activities also include supplier integration and support, quality and risk management, and construction phase and production support.
Examples of customer projects
- R nineT development for BMW:Bertrandt has developed a new lead model for the BMW Group and has developed four motorcycle derivatives on this basis. As the first external development specialist, we were commissioned in this magnitude in motorcycle development with the order volume and project structure. Over a period that is normally planned for the development of one derivative, we developed five. That was possible because, during times of peak capacity utilisation, we were able to make use of the internal Bertrandt network.
- Innovative electric scooter: As long ago as 2014, Bertrandt developed a fully functional technology demonstrator with a waterproof, air-cooled lithium-ion battery housing, recuperation electronics for the recovery of braking energy and a honeycomb sandwich footboard that was manufactured using lightweight design processes from aviation technology. The rider can use an interactive touchscreen display to control various functions such as the speedometer, the battery state of charge, the amount of energy used and recuperated and the odometer.
