Elisava Racing Team was born in 2018 at ELISAVA Barcelona School of Design and Engineering as a project with final year students with the challenge of designing and developing an electric motorcycle to compete in the Barcelona Smart Moto Challenge. In 2019, the team won five awards with the electric motorcycle “ERAY” and continued its success in 2020 with the motorcycle “Dayna”. In the new design, the team wanted to combine a 100% electric off-road motorcycle, an IoT connection, and a medical service capable of reaching where it’s needed. Overall, they wanted a lighter, simpler bike.
Using Altair solutions, the student team improved the motorcycle’s parts and created a lighter, more efficient design. The team also optimized complex assemblies while ensuring maximum performance, comfort, and safety. The optimization of the “Dayna EVO” frame to achieve an optimal package for an electric powertrain also shows that electrification can save costs.
