German manufacturing company BigRep has introduced and created the world’s first 3D-printed and fully functional electric motorbike they called “NERA”.
According to a report by cnn.com, NERA weighs 60kg, boasting futuristic features including airless tires with customizable tread, LED lights which can be programmed, customizable seat and chest rest, and an eye-catching rhomboid wheel rim.
The motorbike also features flexible bumpers in the place of standard suspension and a customizable case for the fully electric engine.
The prototype is fully 3D printed down to the tires except for the electrical parts.
Daniel Büning, co-founder and Managing Director of NOWlab, BigRep’s innovation department said: “This bike and our other prototypes push the limits of engineering creativity and will reshape AM (Additive Manufacturing, 3D printing) technology as we know it.”
