Continuous variable transmission (CVT) is a widely used technology for two-wheeler applications due to its cost-effectiveness, lightweight, and reduced size. This kind of transmission involves the accurate matching of the system with the engine characteristics. This paper analyzes the typical design procedure used to develop the transmission system and evaluates the current approach’s critical issues. The paper aims to identify a possible path to improve the system and its customization capacity. It is identified that the critical design stage is the identification of the correct sliding profile for the half pulley of the front assembly of the system. Then, the geometrical parameters of the transmission are accurately identified through a detailed kinematic analysis. The presented kinematic analysis is propaedeutic for developing a mathematical model that defines the rollers’ sliding profile according to the vehicle’s performance.

Abstract

Continuous variable transmission (CVT) is a widely used technology for two-wheeler applications due to its cost-effectiveness, lightweight, and reduced size. This kind of transmission involves the accurate matching of the system with the engine characteristics. This paper analyzes the typical design procedure used to develop the transmission system and evaluates the current approach’s critical issues. The paper aims to identify a possible path to improve the system and its customization capacity. It is identified that the critical design stage is the identification of the correct sliding profile for the half pulley of the front assembly of the system. Then, the geometrical parameters of the transmission are accurately identified through a detailed kinematic analysis. The presented kinematic analysis is propaedeutic for developing a mathematical model that defines the rollers’ sliding profile according to the vehicle’s performance.
