Light Rider 3D Printed Motorcycle

The world of 3D printing is one that is rapidly improving all the time in terms of the capabilities of the equipment used to make the wares and this seems to have moved another step forward with the likes of this amazing looking Light Rider 3D Printed Motorcycle.

Billed as being the world’s first 3D printed motorbike, the Light Rider is the work of a team of UK based engineers and designers and from a technological and aesthetic point of view, it really is an impressive looking steed. The 3D printed design has many benefits and, as the name suggests, it is an extremely lightweight vehicle that makes use of a proprietary aluminum alloy, Scalmalloy, to build out a frame that is incredibly lightweight (weighing just 13lbs).

Whilst it might not blow you away with it’s statistics – such as a top speed of 50pmh and a battery range of around 35 miles – it’s hard not to be impressed with the exceptional design of this extraordinary vehicle. Check out a few more shots below:
