A Japanese flying bike, which has recently made its first flight in the US, may soon be manufactured in the UAE.
We are producing up to five units a month and plan mass production next year in Abu Dhabi in a joint venture with a (UAE) company,
said Yuma Takenaka, global marketing executive manager of Aerwins, the manufacturer of bike called Xturismo.
The company also showcased Xturismo at the Detroit Auto Show in September and presented a live demo to the media.
Priced at $777,000 (Dh2.85 million), the single-seater flying bike weighs 300kg and has a maximum payload of 100kg. It cruises at a maximum speed of 100km per hour and a maximum range of 40km.
In the future, there will be a model where more people can ride the flying bike. We started selling last year and so far we have sold around 10 units in Japan,
