People had the chance to test drive that hoverbike during the Detroit Auto Show and one of them is the co-chair of the car show Thad Szott. He said “I mean, it’s awesome! Of course, you have a little apprehension, but I was just so amped. I literally had goosebumps and feel like a little kid.”

The hoverbike is Priced at USD 777,000 (around PHP 45 Million) and is already available in Japan but don’t worry a cheaper electric model will come in 2025 with a price tag of USD 50,000 (around PHP 2.9 Million).

As explained in the report, the hoverbike works by using 228-hp gas-powered Kawasaki motorcycle engines for thrust with four electric rotors located on the vehicle’s outer edges for added stability.

The vehicle also weighs 660lbs and is roughly 12 feet long and uses automatic controls for safety purposes.

However, due to strict regulations in Japan, the XTurismo has limited use options and is, for now, only allowed to run on race tracks.

So will we see this vehicle mass produced anytime soon? For now, we can only wait for future updates regarding this new vehicle and how other countries will adopt it into their system.
