The specialized simulation environment for motorcycle design and testing

VI-Motorcycle is based on the MSC Adams solver and fully supported by VI-grade developers. It provides common methods throughout corporations and suppliers for modelling and design practices. Due to its scalability and extendibility it can be customized easily in order to fit into the development process as already done my many OEMs all around the world.

VI-Motorcycle enables engineering teams to quickly build and simulate a complete parameterized model of a motorcycle in order to select fundamental design options and to explore new functional concepts prior to building physical prototypes.


  • Vehicle dynamics
  • Ride and comfort
  • Rider - Motorcycle interaction
  • Durability
  • Limit handling behaviour
  • Road modelling
  • Design of experiment and optimization
  • Powertrain design
  • Software-in-the-loop
  • Hardware-in-the-loop


  • System-level approach supporting structural loads, life, durability, vibration and performance problems within cost, weight, package constraints
  • Template builder architecture which helps to quickly and efficiently build new design solutions
  • Data libraries which ensure component standardization and allow easy data management
  • The included VI-Road utility which enables to define any type of 2D or 3D road profiles
  • Modelling within the MSC Adams environment for full support of several specialized modules for FEA, hydraulics, controls and other concurrent disciplines
  • Dedicated simulation menu allowing for various types of events for complete virtual testing of the motorcycle model, either on a test track or on a two post rig
