German automaker BMW has always been at the forefront of motorbike design and production innovation, and the company is clearly looking to continue that tradition with the introduction of a high-tech superbike frame that makes use of 3D-printing technology.
This particular superbike frame, which was unveiled at the BMW Group's Digital Day 2018 summit, makes use of a S1000RR engine that is capable of churning out 200 horsepower. The frame itself is effectively the skeleton of the superbike, with its naked presentation allowing for a close inspection of the vehicle's design specifications.
In building and publicizing this superbike frame, BMW is looking to position itself as an industry leader in the innovation of 3D-printing technologies, which it hopes will enable it to produce vehicle parts in economical and expedient fashion.
