We are on the road today with Biagio and Giustino who, after proving that he can open the company’s doors, is learning the art of deliveries!
A coffee break with Biagio and Matteo. they never stop to talk about their job and ....bends
We installed our licence plate holder on the new Honda CB650R. what do you think about it?
The exchange of views is part of our daily working life. In this way we can find the best technical solutions!
OUR MANUFACTURING PROCESS
Fourth step: after completing the manufacturing of the product, it is shipped to an external company which specialises in the anodic surface treatment. As soon as this step is finished the piece comes back in Evotech for the quality control stage. Later our experts mark the item with a laser machine and lastly placed inside its dedicated package. All Evotech products are identified by an alphanumeric code and finally stored in the warehouse where they will be ready to be quickly shipped to our customers.
New accessories for the Ducati beast. We present the Streetfighter V4 S Evotech Edition! The model features a masterpiece, a Virex exhaust system! Who wants to hear it started?
OUR MANUFACTURING PROCESS
Third step: once the 3D model of the basic project has been verified, a bill of material is created and defined. The parts that cannot be made in Evotech such as gaskets, bolts and nuts, plexiglass, etc. are being ordered from some suppliers. Later, we proceed towards the determination of the production methodology, then passing through the definition of the tooling, the CAM programming and finally the first production test of the piece.
We have mentioned a product that will debut within a few months. Manufacturing is still ongoing. We look forward to share this project with you!
OUR MANUFACTURING PROCESS
Second step: once the accurate laser scanning of the component is finished, reverse engineering is carried out. The digital model of the serial part is rebuilt using CAD. A new geometry is created and it will serve to set the bases of the mathematical model for the new product. After the design validation, the model is printed in polymeric material using an advanced 3D printer. This step is necessary to have visual feedback and to verify functional coupling.
We are working on a new product for KTM engines, aluminum pinion cover machined from the billet with windows that facilitates inspection of the pinion. In particular, for the Duke 790/890 model there is also an internal slider chain made of a special polymer material also available as spare part. This component is able to contain the movements of the chain during the downshift phase. Available from December 2020.
OUR MANUFACTURING PROCESS
First step: everything starts with the selection of a motorcycle model that will be provided by one of our partners. Once the bike is in Evotech factory, our team starts with the acquisition of motorcycle’s shapes. The original accessory is being disassembled and scanned in several passes through a 3D laser scanner. The laser, every second, gets over 100.000 points. Each square millimeter therefore contains a very high amount of information. Once the acquisition is completed, the shapes in their raw state are reworked on the computer, thus preparing the file from which you can start working.
From drawings to manufacturing. Our new project for 2021 is taking shape more and more. Guess what is it?
Brake lever guards: the brake lever guards, in case of collision, prevents the inadvertent clamped off of the front brake. Aware that the product can make the difference, we decided to produce it with a parabola design detail. That element avoids the rider, in case of collision, from being blocked by the lever guard.
We want to start talking about a project entirely engineered by us. A product that will be the expression of our knowledge and skills. A product for YOU. 2021.
The refinement of the cycling and aerodynamic of our Brevo PM3 continues unabated
Engine covers: we have chosen to produce engine covers in aluminum because, in addition to their main protective function, they are able to increase the radiating surface of the motorcycle. The surface of the component, although only minimally, helps to dissipate the heat from the engine.
Forks protectors: the system includes a pair of aeronautical aluminum bushings held on the fork legs by a steel tie-rod. High resistant polymer sliders are fixed on the bushings. In case of sliding, the high-density polyethylene slider will absorb the impact. The slider will suffer the deterioration but will maintain intact the relevant components.
Brake discs: a large disc could be counterproductive because of the response of the bike. Indeed it suffers from the increases of the inertia moment of the disc itself. The best compromise would be to minimize the diameter and work more on a high performance caliper.
Thanks to the collaboration with Nicola Visentin, a point of reference for the Aprilia world, we created a new products line for the Aprilia RSV4. Soon available on our website www.evotech-rc.com
Forks: the motorbike pitch and trim angle can be varied in a simple and fast way by modifying the extraction of the forks in relation to the triple clamps. However, this change must be regulate by a good mechanic who will measure the size through a caliber or through the references usually placed on the upper part of the fork stems. The cons of this regulation is the consequent variation in the weight distribution.
Here we are! We have completed the customization of the new Ducati Panigale V2! For this model we have produced a large list of accessories that includes: bar ends, ergal nuts, paddock stands bobbins, fuel cap, oil filler cap, license plate holder, anti-shock frame sliders, brake lever and fork protectors and others. Visit our official website www.evotech-rc.com
Triple clamps: the dynamic handling of a motorcycle can be customized operating on the triple clamps offset (the distance between the conjunction of the axles of the two forks and the steering pivot). It can change the trail and the pitch of the motorcycle varying the bike’s performance.
Sprocket & pinion: for all who are looking for maximum performance. They must conside that the sprocket and pinion diameters can change the dynamic handling and performance of the motorcycle. For example, in low powered motorcycles, having a larger sprocket than a smaller one, involves a lower frictional force because the load is distributed over several teeth.
Variations: changing a pinion tooth, the variation of the ratio is, approximately, about twice the variation that will be obtained by changing the sprocket tooth. In addition, a greater variation can be obtained by changing a pinion tooth than a sprocket tooth.
Our latest 2020 Brevo PM3 is ready for the new season on track! This time in an awesome black livery!!
Here we are! In the last few days our technicians created a new product line for Ducati Streetfighter V4S! For this model we are offering: CNC machined tail tidy, frame sliders, inspection phase cover, dashboard protector, kick stand pivot screw, ergal bolts kit! Soon available in our online shop www.evotech-rc.com
Lubricate: to keep a performing chain, it is necessary to lubricate it every 300km. The grease must be carefully applied on the internal side. Centrifugal force will spread the grease onto the rest of the chain.
Evotech products are designed and manufactured by our professionals. Our technicians are ready to solve all technical problems!
Anomalies: it can happen that some air goes in the suspension system. The air could expand itself because of the increase of temperature causing the emulsion of oil. The piston, that no longer finds the oil, slides for a certain distance with less resistance and then starts braking suddenly. This causes an intermittent functioning even though sometimes it’s not so perceptible.
Monoshock: particular attention should be paid to this component. We suggest to check it periodically. A new motorcycle should also be carefully checked because there could be some emulsified oil. This problem often occurs as we can see in the racing world like MotoGP, Moto2, … where the check is being made every day.
The kit includes a top yoke, bottom yoke and a steering pivot. The kit also includes 2 sets of bushing of unusual shape (conical & oval) characterized by two offset values. This peculiarity completely eliminates plays between the top yoke and the steering tube giving them a excellent rigidity. This choice was born from a series of dynamic tests performed by some Superbike world experts. Three different set up can be selected according to the desired handling.
We are producing top yokes for dream motorcycles!! A little preview for you!
When you open a bottle of brake fluid, what is left over should be transferred to a smaller container so that there is no air inside. Indeed this would compromise the fluid. After its handling, it is recommended to wash your hands with water as the fluid is highly corrosive.
We are working on a new product line for the KTM 1290 Super Duke R Model Year ’20. Tail tidy CNC machined, radiator grid protection, frame sliders, GoPro support, and the other usual components for KTM are soon available. Hydraulic preload adjuster are being evaluated.

Not everyone knows that brake fluid is a particularly aggressive substance. All the components that are part of the circuit are made of specific materials such as for example the rubbers which are of EPDM type. For this reason, particular attention should be paid to using products of the same material during maintenance.
Brake fluid humidity, in most demanding brakings, turns into water vapor with consequent lengthening of the braking distances. As DOT and boiling point increase, tendency to retain humidity also raises, therefore a DOT 5.1 should be replaced every 6 months, shortly for a DOT 6.1, that is after each race.
Sixth step del ciclo di OSSIDAZIONE
FIXING: the first method is a cold fixation consisting of a Nickel Fluoride solution that penetrates the pores. The second consists of immersing the piece in an aqueous solution for 1h at 100 ° which transforms the aluminum oxide into aluminum hydroxide.
Fifth step of the OXIDATION CYCLE
COLORING: thanks to the previous phase, the color is deposited inside the pores of the oxide. The organic dyes remain trapped defining certain color tones, according to dyes quality and immersion time.
Fourth step of the OXIDATION CYCLE
ANODIC OXIDATION: the reaction occurs by using direct current. The time required to complete the process may vary according to the thickness desired. The density of the current used accounts for 1.2 amps for each square decimeter of immersed surface and it is supplied with a 16 volts voltage.
Third step of the OXIDATION CYCLE
BRIGHTENING (for shiny pieces): a redox type reaction takes place through the use of acid products at a temperature of about 100°. By selectively dissolving the asperity of the surface, the roughness is reduced thus increasing material shininess.
