Abstract [sv]

Husaberg Scandinavia AB is a company producing and developing a range of motorcycles for both on- and off-road use. Husaberg provided the project group with a task of developing an entirely new way of operating the sequential transmission that can be found in today’s motorcycles. The target was to bring the product from idea to a functional prototype ready for further tests. Operation of the motorcycles transmission is today made by a foot pedal placed on the left hand side of the bike. This position is not optimal and therefore sometimes forces the driver to operate the bike in a faulty gear during certain circumstances as in sharp left turns and in technical sections where the driver uses the legs for side support. This results in loss of time which can’t be afforded during a race. In certain cases the foot pedal can be severely damaged which may even force the driver to leave the competition. The competition between companies in this business is really though. Innovation and product developing are therefore key elements for a company’s future existence. The work during the project has resulted in a new product which exceeds all the demands that the user puts to it. Effort has been made to include factors as functionality, technical height and user friendliness. The project started of with creative thinking, user surveys and examinations within known technique. A great number of methods have thereafter been used to develop a final idea and a functional prototype. The result is EQS, Electronic Quick Shift. A product that enhances the possibility of changing gears during the most demanding circumstances. The product gives the driver an optimal control over the gear operation, resulting in a more effective driving style and the saving of time during every race. By moving the operation of the transmission from today’s foot pedal to buttons on the handle bar, change in gears can be made even when the driver uses the legs as support. EQS allows for great possibilities when it comes to further development. For example EQS may offer persons with functional disorders the possibility and freedom of driving a motorcycle. In the future EQS may also add better fuel efficiency and a decrease of emissions on motorcycles equipped with the system.
