Amazing 3D printers, such as the Comgrow Creality Ender 3, don’t cost an arm and a leg anymore, but NERA takes the technology to the next level. It’s touted as the “world’s first fully 3D-printed e-Motorcycle,” and features a battery concealed within the body, while powered by an electric engine embedded in the back wheel. NOWlab at 3D printer company BigRep used a total of 15 pieces to build the bike, with everything, besides the electrical components, being 3D-printed, including the tires, rims, frame, fork, and seat.

“The NERA is an ambitious machine that utilizes BigRep’s newest PRO FLEX TPU technology, a state-of-the-art thermoplastic polyurethane filament that’s entirely flexible and moldable. The futuristic design, along with an ambitious electric drive system and material composition, allows the NERA to stand out as one of the most innovative bikes we’ve ever seen,” reports Hi Consumption.
