Revving up R&D capabilities to drive the next generation of motorbikes

Becoming a champion superbike racer requires skill, fearlessness… and an ultra-dynamic motorbike designed with supreme precision.

To provide a fast, reliable, and safe riding experience on and off the racetrack, Ducati Motor Holding subjects its motorbike designs to rigorous stress tests as well as fluid dynamics and aerodynamics simulations: a process powered by a Lenovo high-performance computing (HPC) cluster that helps drive rapid innovation.

This study outlines how, with the new Lenovo HPC infrastructure, Ducati engineers were able to speed up the design process by solving issues with the previous infrastructure and provide a new all-in-one platform that is faster and more scalable.
