Efficient mobility with a fun factor

Motorcycles play a key role in an environmentally friendly, mobile future. We have been active for many years now in developing motorcycles for our customers. As a result, the range of services offered by Bertrandt goes far beyond design and engineering. From the initial concept and responsibility for projects and complete processes right through to quality management and services after start of production, we cover the entire product development process and product life cycle.
