The motorcycle and small engine industry is entering a chapter where emission legislation (EU5, BS6) is adapted to the automotive industries and especially CO2 emission is coming more and more into the focus of the OEMs, the legislative authorities and finally the end-user. Technologies like variable valve actuation, direct gasoline injection and turbo charging are state of the art in the automotive industry and have brought the efficiency of the internal combustion engine onto the next level. Nevertheless the small engine manufacturers are seeking for solutions which are cost efficient as well as simple and easy to apply. Even powertrain complexity is increasing the development efforts have to be kept moderate. Therefore, there is strong request for modern instrumentation and Testbeds which support an efficient and effective development process.

Fuel consumption is the most important contributor to the total cost of ownership for mass produced motorcycles. Therefore, best fuel economy is one main influencing criteria for a decision to purchase motorcycles. Furthermore, increasingly stringent emission legislations limit and additional OBD requirements must be fulfilled. A new combined test approach has been developed that minimizes accuracy losses in the development process which compensates for the variability of driving behavior in the chassis dyno environment. An engine testbed combined with a belt drive transmission enables operation in single engine or in Powerpack (i.e. internal combustion engine including transmission) configuration as well as under steady state or dynamic operating mode. Since the belt drive transmission is integrated in the test rig, realistic inertia situation for the single engine operating test configuration is ensured.
