First of all, mention that MotoStudent, a program in which the boys from Eupt bikes, is an international university competition where more than 30 universities from all over the world participate each year. The objective of it is literally set to provide students with practical training that complements the knowledge acquired during their years of study, making them face the enormous challenge of designing and developing a prototype of competition motorcycle that, in a final test , must demonstrate what it is capable of compared to the rest of the prototypes in the prestigious World Cup circuit of Motorland Aragon.
For its part, the Eupt Bikes team is made up of a team of engineering students from the Teruel Polytechnic University School and a student of Business Administration and Management. Once we meet the teams, it should be noted that in their proposal they have decided to be part of the category MotoStudent Electric which forces them to participate in the event with a fully electric motorcycle for which they have developed plastics created using 3D printing technology.
Eupt Bikes prepares its assault on the MotoStudent Electric.
As the project director has reported, taking advantage of the fact that the motorcycle mounts a cycle part as novel as an electric motor can be, it has wanted to continue betting on new technologies by making its entire structure made of plastic resin by means of a 3D printing process. As a detail, note that the team competes in the category of Moto3 with a prototype capable of reaching a maximum speed of 180 kilometers per hour.
In just a few days, specifically the next October 9, the team will have to face another 52 universities. In order to carry out the project, it was necessary to obtain a budget of 50.000 euros, something that has been achieved thanks to the financial support of AITIIP of Zaragoza.
