Lightrider

 

World's first 3D printed electric motorcycle

 

The APWORKS Lightrider

 
APWorks offers aerospace technology for everyday use
OPTIMIZED

Bionic algorithms define the organic frame structure using Altair's OptiStruct®. This aerospace 

approved approach gives the motorcycle superb stiffness and guarantees optimal use of material.

3D PRINTED

3D printing gives the geometrical freedom to realize such complex shapes. The motorcycle frame has been created out of thousands of 30 µm thin layers in a metallic powder bed.

ELECTRIFYING

Thanks to its revolutionary low weight and intuitive handling, the impressive acceleration brings a smile to your face at every traffic light.

LIGHT

Weighing in at just 35 kg, the Light Rider is propably the world's lightest motorcycle prototype. The Power-to-weight ratio equals that of a supercar.

UNIQUE

We use only the best material. The whole frame is made out of Scalmalloy®. This aircraft grade aluminium offers the specific strength of titanium and is unequaled in 3D printing.

ELECTRIC

Silent, emission-free and powerful. The Light Rider is powered by a 6kW electric motor, accelerating the motorcycle prototype with up to 130 Nm torques.
