The flying bike is not allowed to be used on the streets, for now Hturizmo can only be used on private properties and race tracks.
In Japan, the first flying bicycle “Xturismo” of the company A.L.I. was just delivered in front of thousands of people.
A flying bicycle is not unusual to see in sci-fi movies, but seeing it in real life is truly astonishing.
The aforementioned company made an exciting demonstration, testing the hoverbike at the Sapporo Dome in Japan before the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters game.
“Xturismo” is powered by a conventional engine and four electric motors.
It can fly thanks to a set of propellers: two primary and four secondary propellers in each corner, which act as stabilizers.
The Xturismo qualifies as an ultralight aircraft, meaning the driver does not need to be a certified pilot to fly it.
The bike’s top speed is estimated to reach an ambitious 100 km/h, with an expected flight time of between 30 and 40 minutes.
That’s definitely great for an actual flying vehicle, but it’s still not good enough to replace other modes of transportation.
The flying bike is not allowed to be used on the streets, for now the “Xturismo” can only be used on private properties and race tracks.
The price of this vehicle is 680,000 dollars.
