Entirely 3D printed motorcycle

Nera is an electric motorcycle that is entirely 3D printed. Like the bicycle tire we wrote about in May, this motorcycle is the work of BigRep, a German company that distributes big Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) printers, which can produce objects as large as a cubic meter. Everything but the bike’s electrical components were 3D-printed, including the airless tires, rims, frame, fork, and seat. The in-house designer Marco Mattia Cristofori authored the blueprints for this futurist creation. The Nera measures 190 x 90 x 55 cm and weighs 60 kilos. Unfortunately, the motorcycle isn’t for sale — it’s just a demo to show off the wonders possible on the BigRep printers.

Mashable, “3D-printed electric motorcycle actually runs, but it’s not for sale.”
