Flying motorcycles without wheels will appear in Japan
In Japan, sales of hoverbikes - flying wheelless motorcycles - will begin next year. Hoverbike manufacturer XTurismo LimitedEdition, the Japanese company ALI Technologies is already accepting pre-orders for its products, but sales will begin only in the first half of 2022. The car costs $ 680 thousand, or 47.5 million rubles.
Hoverbike is a drone-likea device with an internal combustion engine as a power plant for 2 large propellers, and 4 small propellers are installed on the "motorcycle", powered by an electric motor, which is powered by batteries. The weight of the car is 300 kg, the maximum speed is 100 km / h, and the time in the air is 40 minutes. Instead of wheels on the hoverbike, skid chassis are installed.
According to the CEO of ALITechnologies, the hoverbike cannot be driven on public roads due to current Japanese law, so the car is more suitable for those who like riding on the racetrack. As noted by the vendor's representative, their hoverbike can also be suitable for rescue services for use in hard-to-reach places where it is difficult to use conventional equipment.
