Motorcycle Italian Volt “Lacama” printed in 3D
Italian Volt, a motorcycle company developed a customizable electric motorcycle. Named Lacama, the chassis, the frame and the arm are printed in 3D. Italian Volt Lacama goes from zero to 100 Km / h in 4.2 seconds.
Inspired by the work of Tesla’s electric car manufacturer, Italian Volt has made the load of its new electric motorcycle the main priority. A TFT (Thin film translator = technology for a flat screen) touch screen allows drivers to easily check the battery status. The special process of «quick charge» enables to recharge the motorcycle until 80% in only 40 minutes. (On a standard outlet, a full charge takes about three hours.)
Since a great number of aluminium parts of the bike are 3D printed, motorcyclists can then ask Italian Volt to adapt the vehicle to their own specifications. The 12 parts that constitute the body of the bike can all be customized in terms of shape and colour. That’s why there are a lot of opportunities for drivers to create their own Lacama.
Italian Volt has been created last year and is based in Milan. The company wants to become the [next big manufacturer on the motorcycle market]. Nicola Colombo, one of the three founders, holds a Guinness World Record after travelling 7691.94 miles from Shanghai to Milan on an electric motorcycle.
