The detail design and development of a high drag force aerodynamics package for a high speed motorcycle is described. Numerical methods are first used to develop drag plate profiles which conform to packaging restrictions while still generating high drag forces. CFD simulation is carried on the drag plate in isolation to optimize and to validate the theoretical findings.
