Laboratory NOWlab has developed the world’s first motorcycle Nera, all 15 basic elements of which are made by 3D printing. With the exception of the steel battery power, motor and headlight.
The authorship of the design Nera belongs to Marco Cristofori MATEO and Maximilian Sedlak of NOWlab. The size of the bike is 190 x 90 x 55 cm It has been manufactured on 3D printers BigRep using threads ProHT, ProFLEX, PETH and PLA with a thickness of 0.6 – 1 mm.
Nera have no shock absorbers, the function of which perform special deformable elements in the joints of the wheels and the frame. According to experts, the advantages of this innovation is still very questionable.
It is worth noting that Nera is exclusively design concept model, so any technical details about the powertrain, speed, and other characteristics are unknown.
