The Flying Motorcycle will go on Sale for $682,000

Japanese engineers have created a flying motorcycle with the possibility of vertical takeoff. Xturismo is interesting in a number of ways, but fans of an eco-friendly lifestyle may not like it.

The heavy flying motorcycle was created by the efforts of ALI Technologies. Unlike most analogues, it received an impressive power reserve – up to 40 minutes – and can reach a speed of 100 km/h. However, contrary to modern trends in environmental friendliness, the model runs on a conventional internal combustion engine.

The weight of Xturismo will be 300 kg. The developers are confident that high autonomy will allow it to be used during rescue operations, recreational flights and for exploring tourist routes. The flying bike will cost a whopping $682,000, with deliveries expected in the first half of 2022.

The company is going to produce 200 devices per year. The startup has already attracted the attention of large investors who are ready to spend millions of dollars on development. Among the largest are Kyocera and Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Venture Capital.
