Compactness (size and wight reduction)
As a result of the engineering knowledge application on new materials, advanced calculation tools and integrated solution it is now possible to increase the power density. This improvement has a strong impact on weight and size reduction with the highest level of reliability.
Motorcycles with improved manoeuvrability and power efficiency deliver a riding excellence and achieve a quick reaction on when unexpected situations turn up.
