Powered by four 96,000-rpm JetCat jet turbines, the 308-pound Lazareth LMV 496 La Moto Volante is set to be the world’s first flying motorcycle, and it’s a doozy. Not only will the engines produce 1,300-horsepower, but 529-pounds of thrust to boot, all concealed within its sleek composite body. Its kerosene tank is large enough to enable the LMV 496 to hover above ground for around 10-minutes.
During flight, the dashboard will display essential flight information such as speed, position, altitude, and more, while joysticks on either side of the handlebar can be used to control its direction. Two caveats: just five units will be produced worldwide, with four of them being sold to the public – # 002, # 003, # 004 and # 005 – and secondly, they’ll be priced at $560,000 USD a piece.
