As a general rule, it is always advisable to ensure that any type of equipment is made with robust, high-quality materials – Italian-made products are a sure-fire guarantee of this.

Thus, when making the decision to purchase equipment at a medium-high price point, you can be sure that you are making a long-term investment which will have positive effects on the workshop’s results and ROI.

Now we’ll take a more detailed look at some key features to seek out in each type of equipment.


When it comes to workshop furniture or workbenches, robustness and functionality are the two key characteristics to look for.

Equally important, however, is the quality of the materials and the coverings used: it is essential for workshop furniture to be resistant to knocks and scratches, and it must be easy to clean off even the most stubborn stains, such as oil.

With workstations for performing a specific task, such as working on suspension, it is essential to make sure that the workbench has components suitable for this type of work.

In the example given of a suspension workstation, a perforated stainless-steel worktop and an oil collection tray is essential, as is space for storage of equipment required for the work itself, such as vacuums.

Exhaust Fumes Extraction Systems

The exhaust gases produced when working on motorbikes in the shop can be very damaging to the health of the mechanics.

For this reason, equipping your workshop with exhaust fumes extraction systems can not only improve the quality of the work, but also has a direct impact on workers’ health.

An extremely interesting innovation in this field is magnetic adapters, which offer:

  • Compatibility with all exhausts
  • Height adjustment
  • Horizontal adjustment

Vehicle lifts

As far as motorcycle repair tools go, the lifting platform is maybe the most important.

There are now various types of motorcycle lift available, and so it is important to carefully analyse your production requirements in order to choose the one best suited to your workshop.

A lifting platform equipped with front or rear hatches can be very useful when you need to carry out work directly on the vehicle, but you want to avoid loading and unloading it from the lift multiple times.

A lift with a low minimum height from the ground and a large maximum lifting height guarantees a wide margin of mobility for the mechanic, and can be easily integrated into any environment thanks to the space saved.

Something equally important to check is the type of controls used to perform the lift's movement: choosing an electrohydraulic system offers greater speed and safety during the work, for increased functionality.

Oil Dispensing Systems

New oil dispensing systems and used oil management systems must be sized to meet the workshop's requirements, optimising the space occupied by the equipment and making the working area neat and tidy.

Moreover, a modern fluid management system allows for the following:

  • Improved management of stocks
  • Faster filling and topping-up operations
  • Limiting and optimising of costs
