A few weeks ago, we were presenting the first tests of Ego Corsa, the motorbike manufactured using 3D printing.
Carried out by both Loris Capirossi and the Energica official test rider Alessandro Brannetti, the two experts were pretty positive about this experience. As a reminder, the 3D printed fairing was manufactured by CRP Technology via Laser Sintering using Windform XT 2.0 Carbon-fiber reinforced composite material.
According to experts, the properties of the material enabled them to modify motorcycle components – even large ones – from one race to the next ones, in order to test different solutions directly on the track.
“This fairing”, the Energica technical staff adds, “is not only more aerodynamic, but it also has a smaller frontal and lateral section. These improvements led to achieve increase in terms of performance and they led to achieve greater manageability in fast corners.
