This experimental 3D-printed frame and swingarm points to the future.

The German manufacturer has now revealed a metal 3D-printed prototype frame and swingarm, At the BMW Group Digital Day 2018 event, the company showed off the frame which housed an in-line-four engine from the S1000RR.

The frame was built using a 3D-printing technology called Selective Laser Melting. The manufacturer is looking for suitable alternative manufacturing methods. The company has already set up the Additive Manufacturing Centre in Munich, from where 1,40,000 3D-printed parts can be created each year.

The next S1000RR is unlikely to feature a 3D-printed frame, since this technology is yet in its infancy, and the bike launches next year.
