Dubbed the XTURISMO "luxury air cruiser," the new invention was inspired by the "Star Wars" movie franchise and weighs more than 661 pounds. The 12-foot-long flying vehicle costs $555,000 with a non-refundable deposit of $5,500. Also, you may select three colors: red, blue, and black.
The world’s first flying bike weighs 300kg and draws power from two large central rotors running on a 170kW Kawasaki gas motor. Moreover, it gets additional power from an electric battery, which operates four fans on the edges to provide stability. It has a maximum speed of 80 to 100 kph and a cruising range of 40 km, meaning it could travel that distance without refueling.
According to the company behind the project, XTURISMO has a wide range of practical uses from disaster relief to infrastructure inspection to entertainment.
"It is a manifestation of the dream of air mobility that endeavors to create a completely new way to experience the world, enabling users to feel the joy and pleasure of moving freely in space," the company wrote about the product.
XTURISMO was unveiled at Fuji Speedway in Japan in Oct. 2021. In June 2022, Aerwins Technologies announced its global launch at Top Marques Monaco and its performance at the Detroit Auto Show in September.
The company reports that it is currently receiving orders and inquiries from all over the world. XTURISMO is currently available in Japan for $555,000.
