UMATEX helped Kawasaki to win the stage of Superbike World Championship
The UMATEX body kits were installed on the motorcycle of Kawasaki Puccetti Racing racer, which allowed to increase speed by 3-4 km/h.
Kawasaki Puccetti Racing racer took first place at the WorldSBK Superbike Championship in France. He participated in the competition on a motorcycle with a composite body kit, which was developed by the Moscow Company UMATEX.
"UMATEX production is located in SEZ Technopolis Moscow. This gives the company comfortable conditions for work-developed infrastructure, its own customs post on the territory of the SEZ, all necessary communications and additional services. We are proud that the capital's high technologies help in all spheres of life and in different parts of the world. Moscow is one of the world leaders in the development and production of composite materials. Now we can confidently say that the quality of developments and products is 100% confirmed in the field", - said Alexander Prokhorov, the head Of the Department of investment and industrial policy of Moscow.
The unique aerodynamics of the carbon fiber body kit allows not only accelerating high speeds, but also increases the efficiency of braking on turns. The motorcycle vibrates less and behaves more stably during the race.
"The use of advanced aerodynamic scheme in the manufacture of body kit had a positive effect on the speed performance of the motorcycle, increasing them by 3-4 km per hour. The result was a victory for Kawasaki Puccetti Racing racer at the stage of the World Championship in France. We plan to provide the team with composite body kits at the next competitions", — said Alexander Tyunin, the General Director of UMATEX.
The carbon fiber body kit with a unique aerodynamic profile for the Kawasaki ZX-10RR motorcycle was designed and manufactured by UMATEX R&D center (Rosatom) in partnership with RSSU. The project also involved the engineering company "INTEC", national research nuclear University "MEPhI", PICASO 3D, RangeVision.
UMATEX (Rosatom) is a partner of the sports team from Italy Kawasaki Puccetti Racing, which participates in the worldSBK Superbike Championship. Kawasaki Puccetti Racing team is the official partner of Kawasaki concern.
