Founded in 2013, Airbus Group subsidiary APWorks produces bionically optimized metal parts that help engineer machinery as varied as automotive to robots. Their latest development, the Light Rider, is a 3D-printed electric motorbike which uses Schalmalloy, a custom aluminium alloy that is resistant to corrosion and nearly as strong as titanium. Weighing at just 35 kg (77 lbs), it is 30% lighter than most e-motorcycle. The vehicle can go 80 km/h (50 mph) and run from 0-45km/h in three seconds. The battery is exchangeable and offers 60 km (35 miles) over the course of one charge. There are only 50 motorcycles available for per-order at the price of €50,000 EUR (approximately $56,100 USD) each. Place your €2,000 EUR (or $2,200 USD) deposit right now.
