    3d-printed tire concept

    https://www.engadget.com/2017/08/07/...-airless-tire/

    I find this _fascinating_, but since it is a wheel/tire all in one... not sure if it would work for a motorcycle, esp. a sport-style that leans over more. Or maybe it just needs a different printed structure. The part about replaceable treads though... awesome!

    Fascinating, thanks for the link.
    I worked in our additive manufacturing lab for a year, pretty fascinating technology.
