This 3D Printed Electric Motorcycle is Worth $56,000 – And Here’s Why

The German company, APWorks have manufactured an extremely lightweight electric motorcycle with the help of 3D printing. The company used the type of aluminum created by themselves called Scalmalloy.

The German company has claimed that Scalmalloy is much stronger than the usual type of aluminum powder used in 3D printing and it is corrosion resistant.

As Scalamolly is claimed to be a tough material, it still retains the lightweight properties of aluminum. This means that the hollow frame of the bike weighs just 13 pounds and the whole bike weighs just 77 pounds.

The less weight of the bike helps it get a pretty good range, at least for inner-city travel. The bike can go about 37 miles per charge.

The electric bike can also go from zero to 28 miles per hour within just three seconds. The bike can reach a top speed of 50 miles per hour.

As of now, the company has no plans to mass produce the bike.

The company will, however, make 50 Light Riders and will sell each Light Rider for around $56,000.
