Flying motorcycle takes off: is it the future of riding?
(BIKER DAD) –A flying motorcycle takes off into the air. The video is exhilarating. The future of riding, may not be riding at all, but flying. That’s if you can afford it. French auto-maker “Lazarus” is showing off its new “motorcycle” that is more about wings than wheels.
It’s called “La Moto Volante”…sounds fancy right? But it just translates to “flying motorcycle.” Four turbines boost the bike from the ground to the sky…talk about getting in the wind. Downside is it will only fly for about 10 minutes at a time…oh and there’s the price tag.
The company will only be making five of them…and they are $560 thousand dollars each. So although the dream of flying motorcycles may be coming true…It will remain a dream for virtually everyone on the planet. Lazarus teased “La Moto Volante,” the flying motorcycle, to the world two years ago. Only 5 of the bikes are available. Last year the company rleased them saying, “the LM496 model is produced in 5 copies only. The motorcycles available to order are the numbers # 002, # 003, # 004 and # 005. Lazareth Auto-Moto produces tailor-made vehicles for you, approved and approved in accordance with French regulations.”
Retail for the flying bike starts at more than half a million dollars. Most riders will never even see one. And there’s no word if any have actually sold.
