The world's first 3D printed motorcycle
IT'S electric, uses a titanium-alloy frame and weighs only 35kg according aeronautics giant Airbus, the firm behind the world's first 3D printed motorcycle. Fifty are to be made costing €50,000 each.
Fifty grand for a print-out? It's five pence a sheet at the library.
Has The Doctor met his mechanised match?
REMEMBER Yamaha’s R1M-riding robot? Yamaha has been quiet about the project since the start of the year but this new video has just emerged showing Valentino Rossi meeting the Motobot for the first time.

Because why not?
NO, this HJC helmet isn't being crushed as part of a rigorous testing regime by Snell or Sharp - it's being destroyed purely to see what a helmet looks like when it's crushed in a hydraulic press because watching objects get crushed is apparently a thing now, judging from the popularity ...

Forthcoming web series promises to lift the lid on the life of Rossi

Not long ago we saw what happens when the two are combined and here we’ve got another example.
We start with a group of riders/squids going a tad too ... Continue reading
'That's not what it's supposed to do'
