A Japanese company has made a flying bike. Tokyo-based drone startup ALI Technology has designed this hoverbike. It has been named XTurismo Limited Edition. After the successful testing of the bike, the company has started its booking from 26 October.

The company will make only 200 flying bikes. The company’s chief executive Daisuke Katano told news agency Reuters that we had the choice to move on land or in the sky. We are offering a new method for movement. The bike was also flown and rotated in the air during testing. Let us know that this startup is supported by Mitsubishi Electric and Kyocera.

Regarding the hoverbike, the company has claimed that it can be flown for 40 minutes at a time. Its flying speed can go up to 100 km per hour. In this, a conventional engine powered by petrol has been used. Four batteries have been installed to power the motor of the bike. Its price will be 77.7 million yen (about Rs 5.09 crore).

The internal combustion engine of the XTurismo hoverbike is powered by petrol as well as electrically. The weight of the bike is around 300 kg. Its length is 3.7 m, width is 2.4 m and height is 1.5 m. At present, only one pilot can sit in it. The company aims to bring a fully electric version of this flying bike by 2025.

The body of this dual color hoverbike looks like a motorcycle. Propellers have been given on its top. The landing remains on the skids when the machine is stationary. The bike was demonstrated near Mount Fuji. In this, a short flight was taken by bike in the air a few meters above the grounds.

Daisuke Katano said that in the future the use of this flying bike will be limited to such sites. It will not be allowed to fly on the packed roads of Japan. With the use of this bike, the rescue team will be able to reach difficult places.

By changing the padding rule, the potential application of the bike can be extended. The deliveries of the first unit of this limited edition flying bikes will start from next year.
