28 March 2022
Alonte (Vicenza), March 28, 2022 - Athena joins the Ducati Official Suppliers network, a selected group of companies that contribute to the development of the Borgo Panigale's vehicles on the racing circuits and on the market. Every year, this program sees the participation of important companies from the world of two wheels.
The deep knowledge of the two-wheeler market and the continuous development of innovative solutions have led Athena to take care of the realization of special projects, both in the mechanical and electronic fields.
Specifically, these projects concern the development of a special data logger for the collection of parameters during road tests carried out before the vehicles are marketed, in order to ensure compliance with Ducati standards. A further project aimed at a special application under development concerns the use of two components for the lubrication management and control system: an oil level indicator and a special breather plug to regulate the pressure inside the transmission compartment. .
The entry of Athena and GET into the Ducati Official Suppliers program will therefore contribute to increasing the visibility and relevance of both brands in the national and international market, giving continuity to the development of new innovative projects.
Marco Mogentale, General Manager of Athena's Electronics division, says: "We have been collaborating with Ducati for some time and entering this program is a source of pride and satisfaction for us. We have already defined a roadmap of new projects that will lead us to consolidate collaboration and develop turnkey solutions, with a focus on innovation and reliability ".
Davide Perni, Ducati Preventive Quality Manager, says "A few years ago we started with an innovative project for monitoring and data acquisition on motorcycles under development: this project is an important piece of a roadmap for the continuous improvement of product quality. Ducati. We found in GET a competent and flexible partner who accompanied us in this project, proposing innovative solutions to our requests from time to time. "
The know-how and expertise fielded by Athena and Ducati meet once again with the shared goal of improving the performance of the Ducati bikes both on the track and on the road.
