NERA electric motorcycle is a functioning bike that was made using a 3D printer. The only catch — it’s just a “use case” example for a German 3D printing company to show off its material-making skills.
Even if it’s not for sale, it’s an impressive print job from the NOWlab at 3D printer company BigRep. Printed in 15 pieces, the NERA bike actually runs on an electric engine embedded in the back rim. The battery is housed within the body.
Everything but the bike’s electrical components were 3D-printed, including the tires, rims, frame, fork (the part that connects the front wheel and axle to the frame), and seat.
