BMW finds a cheaper way to manufacture carbon-fiber
The HP4 is an exemplary showcase of cutting-edge technology, exotic materials, skilled craftsmanship, design, and creativity. This tells us all about the experience, skillset and state-of-the-art know-how the folks at BMW have that make them rise above and beyond. Alas, all of this asks a hefty $78,000 affordable by just 1% of mankind.
Now, the same folks bring you an affordable way for the rest of the 99% to get all that carbon-fiber on to your motorcycle. And doing so, they have just received the 2018 JEC Innovation Award in the Leisure & Sports category for the development and manufacture of a rear swinging arm made of carbon fiber.
Today, carbon-fiber is embedded extensively in motorsport and expensive automobiles and motorcycles. People love the material so much as to even replace their non-functional parts of their machine with this exquisite material to gain the exclusive tag. It was, however, an an expensive affair. But not anymore.
