This is the Lazareth LMV 496, which the world’s first transforming flying electric motorbike.Lazareth have a jet engine in the hub of each wheel, and hydraulic actuators that tilt the four wheels out and up, forming a configuration something like a jet-powered hoverbike.

In it’s normal bike form, it is certified to ride on the road, just like the LMV847 Quad bike.But the main difference between the 2 bikes is, at a press of a button the bike starts it’s transformation. Firstly 2 centre stands come down to support the weight of the bike.
Then each wheel tilts up, so the jet engines in the hubs are now facing down, and after waiting about 60 seconds for the jets to pre-heat, you can lift off.
The Lazareth team will be bringing the Hover Bike, to Gitex computer & electronics trade show in Dubai in October 2019, and will launch pre-orders there at a price of €496,000 euro or about $560,000 US Dollars.It may be impractical, and it may never fly in the skies, but Lazareth got a full size prototype in the air that’s also road-certified, so at least it’s real and works.via/read more: Wonder World
