Abstract

MotoStudent is an engineering and economic competition for students to build a motorcycle that will take part in a real race on the Motorland Aragon track in Spain. The Kenji Racing Team, a student team from John von Neumann University, has been participating in this competition since 2016. The design of the motorcycle must be accurately documented towards to the competition organization, and economic and engineering tasks must be solved for the teams. In terms of engineering work, the development of innovation applied on the electric motorcycle is of paramount importance. Nowadays, one of the most popular development areas in motorsport is aerodynamics. Nevertheless, there are few studies about active aerodynamic systems. In our research we present the aerodynamics of motorcycles and the effect of passive and active wing systems on driving dynamics. With this knowledge, we detail the design steps of an active wing system.
