This bike is made by 3-D printer

Advances in technology no doubt greatly assist human performance. The proof, the imitation of Harley-Davidson motorcycle constructed through the sophisticated 3-D printer. A Swiss firm TE Connectivity (formerly Tyco Electronics Ltd.) has produced what it claims to be the world’s first fully-operational 3D-printed motorcycle.

TE Connectivity claims took 1,000 hours to design and print the motor at a cost of approximately US $25 thousand (Rp. 330 million). This amount may be reduced if the manufacturer has a more adequate technology.

At first glance, many people did not think the big motorcycle made by a printer and take the HD Softail as the model. But in fact, most of the components of this bike is made from acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic material by using a 3-D printer.

Here are several pictures of the TE Connectivity fully-functional 3D-printed motorcycle. (All pictures taken from: http://bit.ly/1KFuc9s)

Neither the frame until all the pads are made of advanced 3-D technology. To make this big motor function, then given extra such as tires, brakes, rearview mirror until the electrical components including motors with power 1 hp.

This unique motorcycle has a weight 181 kilograms (with the engine weight 113.4 kg) is claimed to be capable of traveling at 15 mph in a few minutes. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTORCYCLE.COM | VISORDOWN]
