Meet this bastion of advanced technology, a super cool yet trendy flying bike that made its first appearance last week at the Detroit Auto Show. This fascinating invention comes from a Japanese-owned start-up, “AERWINS Technologies,” and in no time, their magnificent product gained enormous attention. This two-wheeled flying bike christened “XTURISMO” is certainly a bit nicer to look at, but it comes at a hefty price of $777,000. However, the company behind its design claimed that it would try its best to shoot that price down to about $50,000 by the year 2025. If everything runs as planned, it will take no time at all to become a scientific mainstream in this world of advanced technology.
Coupled with this, the bike can cruise for around 40 minutes in the air and with a maximum speed of around 62 miles per hour. Although the flight time is a bit less than anticipated, but if the performance parameters continue to improve over the years, then we can expect that the flight time will also be increased. It should be noted that XTURISMO operates on a “Kawasaki hybrid engine” and is a key parameter behind its smooth flying operations. Not to mention, you are lucky if you are in Japan as this exciting product has been already available there.
However, the company has been preparing a smaller version of this thrilling bike in order to make it release in the US and the deadline has been projected to be somewhere around the year 2023. Moreover, releasing this masterpiece at Motor City in the US is the most effective approach for gaining brand attention. You would be amazed to know that Thad Szott, who is co-chair of the Detroit Auto Show, was one of the first people who took a thrilling ride on this amazing bike. He expressed his excitement in the following words, “I mean, it’s awesome!” Of course, you have a little apprehension, but I was just so amped. I literally had goosebumps and felt like a little kid. “
While discussing the overall experience of the ride regarding the quality, efficiency, and performance parameters, Szott said, “It was comfortable. There was no, like, jerky-jerky. ” On the other hand, the founder and CEO of AERWINS Technologies, Shuhei Komatsu, stated, “It’s very exciting for us to be here in Detroit. Detroit is the home of the mobility industry.”
