Electrical & Electronic Systems: development and creation of expertise
Ducati's approach is to develop internally, together with its suppliers, the technologies to be introduced on its motorcycles, simultaneously creating know-how within the Company. The drive towards innovation in electronics goes hand in hand with the growth of the Electrical & Electronic Systems department, which has seen its resources quadruple in just over ten years. Through the work of this department, which is part of the R&D, Ducati studies, develops and introduces new and often innovative systems into series production, obviously also drawing on experience from racing competition.
In addition to developing new technologies internally, Ducati has had several internal laboratories within the company for several years to carry out tests during the development phase, without necessarily having to rely on external resources or suppliers. One of these is Electrical & Electronic Testing which is responsible for evaluating the electrical and electronic components of the bikes in the range, putting them to the test to measure their quality and duration over time. The electronic components are tested simulating the most extreme temperatures and atmospheric events such as driving rain or salt spray. This department also carries out software debugging and mobile app activities since connectivity has become increasingly important in the motorcycle field.
All this is "the Ducati method". A working method that has allowed the Borgo Panigale company to create increasingly innovative products with increasing quality year after year, demonstrating how the strategic commitments of the Borgo Panigale company, from racing to research and development, through to investment in experimentation, are aimed, year after year, at giving Ducatisti the motorbikes of their dreams.
