World’s first 3D printed electric bike

German 3D printer maker Bigrep has developed the world’s first 3D printed e-motorcycle NERA.

Other than electrical components and the battery, all parts have been produced by 3D printing technology, including tires, rims, frame, fork and seat, according to the company’s website.

The tires are airless and the seat made of flexible material, allowing it to adapt to the driver’s individual body shape.

Details such as mileage per charge and official launching have not been announced yet.

3D printing can substantially reduce lead time and costs, especially for small volume production. It also helps reduce reliance on the supply chain.
