ENJOY THE SILENCE
3D printed custom motorcycle fairing designed and CAD constructed for Urban Motor x Craftrad, commissioned by Schuberth Helmets.
From finding the right industrial partners and applying the most appropriate and performative technology and material, to designing and CAD constructing the fairing itself, Leon Laskowski Industrial Design was approached by the Berlin-based, custom motorcycle workshop Urban Motor, to realize the Additive Manufacturing of a custom made motorcycle fairing.
After a 3D scan of the electric KTM Freeride E SM cross bike had been made, it took four weeks from the first sketch to the finishing of the CAD files and implementation of the design and CAD construction. The highly unusual, contemporary monocoque fairing, made from only four individual parts, including the front fare housing, was developed upon Urban Motor’s CEO Peter Dannenberg’s initial vision of a modern, electric urban Cafe Racer. Premiered on the EICMA 2018 in Milan, Schuberth Helmets had commissioned Craftrad and Urban Motor to create a bike based on their newly launched Schuberth 01 jet helmet.
The fairing was Laser Sintered from the high-performance, lightweight Windform LX 3.0 by CRP Technology in Italy.
This project is a good example for the immense speed of a project, being pulled off from concept to implementation, when working with Additive Manufacturing and related technology: It took one day for the 3D scan, four weeks for the CAD construction and design and mere three days for the fairing to be laser sintered.
