APWorks Introduces Light Rider, The World’s First 3D-Printed Motorcycle
APWorks, a subsidiary of airplane manufacturer Airbus, has conceived the world’s first 3D-printed motorcycle that weights just 35 kilograms. With a 6 kW electric engine, the Light Rider goes from zero to 50 mph in just seconds and features a frame boasting a mere 6 kg.
3D-printing technologies have revolutionized the design and manufacturing process – not only in terms of structure and aesthetics, but also in impressive weight savings on parts and equipment when compared to those made using conventional manufacturing techniques. APWorks used an algorithm to develop the Light Rider’s optimized structure to keep weight at a minimum while ensuring the motorcycle’s frame was strong enough to handle the weight loads and stresses of everyday driving scenarios.
