Most notably, BENDA has introduced for the first time its modular chassis concept (BD-MOP). This concept, originally from the automobile industry, entails using the same chassis platform, and through Lego-like modular arrangement and structural layout, such as offset or central shock modules, or different powertrain and main frame components, a variety of motorcycles of different styles and displacements can be produced on the same platform. This innovation opens up a new world of possibilities for future platforms’ extensibility, providing a broader canvas for motorcycle design.
