Instrumentation for motorcycles

The EICMA international motorcycle trade fair held in Milan, Italy (08.11.2011 - 13.11.2011) is one of the leading European trade fairs for the motorcycle market. Continental is presenting instrumentation solutions for motorcycles at the trade fair under its VDO product brand. These come from the field of commercial and special-purpose vehicles and offer impressive customer-specific integration possibilities.

Frankfurt/Germany, 31 October 2011. The international automotive supplier Continental is now bringing its expertise in instrumentation for trucks, vans, buses and special-purpose vehicles to the booming motorcycle market under its VDO brand: with a wide product range extending from individual indicators through to modular clusters and fully integrated digital cockpits, the company caters to all market segments. These instrumentation products can be tailored just as effectively to small and low-cost mopeds as to luxurious sport and touring motorcycles. Whether the customer requires small volumes for high-end markets or large volumes for low-cost models, flexible and innovative solutions can always be achieved because all of Continental's instrumentation expertise can be called upon.

Vehicle manufacturers can not only rely on a worldwide network of development and production sites, which is equipped for production runs of any size. Customers can, in particular, also benefit from the world-leading expertise of the company in software, display technologies, perception capabilities, surface processing and quality assurance. The latest technologies, achievements and developments for multinational passenger car and commercial vehicle manufacturers are thus also made quickly available to the motorcycle market. All instruments and information systems can be customized according to the customer's requirements and adapted to the motorcycle market.

Continental not only operates regional manufacturing sites. It also has expert development and design departments close to its customers, which work out the optimal solution for the specific product in close consultation with the vehicle manufacturer. The process starts, if requested, with the creation of a "performance specification" which defines the development requirements for the end product and extends from quality assurance and the industrialization process through to support with warehousing and production logistics.

In addition to its technological capabilities, the instrument cluster of VDO also offers, in particular, outstanding quality and high durability under the toughest conditions: a company which makes instruments for boats and excavators has water, dust, dirt and snow under control - and the same applies to motorcycle cockpits. Furthermore, the company's developers are experts in readability and UV protection: the information is presented as clearly as possible under all circumstances.
