JAPANESE company A.L.I. Technologies has officially launched the XTURISMO Limited Edition, its hoverbike in development since 2017. With this new model it is betting on a bold vision of clean mobility, allowing users to move freely and quickly in the air in a unique way.

A mix between a flying motorcycle, a drone and the Speeder Bike in "Return of the Jedi" is how one could describe the XTURISMO Limited Edition.

Designed to bring riders new sensations, this model features four motors attached to the same number of propellers. The machine, which weighs 300 kg and can support a little more than a hundred kilograms, has a flight autonomy of about 35 minutes, for a maximum speed of over 100 km/h.

It is already available for order, for the princely sum of 77.7 million yen or 680,000 dollars. The first deliveries, in Japan, are scheduled for the first half of 2022.

This is not the first time that a hoverbike has come to market; Russian brand HoverSurf, for example, released the Hoverbike S3 in 2018. However, this one appears much more polished, more manageable as well as faster.
