This training is offered in progressive levels ranging from suspension basics to courses for those who specialize in trackside race tuning.
WORLDWIDE TECHNICAL CENTER
Bitubo is looking to expand our worldwide support, selecting new technical centers and providing the required technical knowledge necessary to service the wide range of Bitubo products. Every year, each technical center must attend at least one training course in order to remain up to date regarding new products, technical improvements, and updates to our current products.
OEM & INDUSTRIAL
Bitubo offers its own know-how and structure to design suspensions under
customer’s requests and specifications, according to co-branding or private label agreements. Since 2006 Bitubo is ISO 9001 certificated and since 2017 the high-quality manufacturing process earned Bitubo the quality certification UNI EN ISO 9001:2015. This high quality standard enabled our company to obtain the German homologation ABE certification for more than 60% of our catalogue; in particular, our system of adaptive suspension (DS) received a VCA homologation as first electrical system of aftermarket. Our expertise made us become supplier of PIAGGIO group since 1986, providing development and production for OEM suspensions and accessories. Moreover, we supplied sidecar Ural Company and successfully managed an Audit of BMW Group. Our aim is to enlarge our network of partners in OEM suspensions and accessories field and we are sure your partnership could be of key importance for our goal. We are eager to cooperate with WSBK Team and MOTOGP in order to strengthen this possible connection and achieve mutual goals: we have developed new material for the racing department focusing the attention on our technical centers all over the world. These centers mean technical support available everywhere for the need of final clients with revision (basic maintenance), set up, vehicle balancing, customization and products liability.
WORLDWIDE CUSTOMER BASE
With modern premises and well organized manufacturing facilities, Bitubo has the capability and capacity to meet the specific customer demands from all over the world. Bitubo exports to Europe, USA, Canada, South America, South Africa, Asia and Oceania.

OUR TECHNOLOGY AND PASSION
A new area dedicated to development and competition! A section for R&D workshops, with electronic and hydraulic dyno systems: a hydraulic simulator that can replicate laps on the track in the laboratory, dynos measuring springs force, stiction and hydraulic calibration of shocks, forks and steering dampers. Scales to find the centre of gravity of the vehicle and give the correct baseline setting for the various riding conditions found in the field.
The area is reserved both for the development of new products and for R&D team meetings. In fact, only authorized staff provided with a security badge are allowed access.
