Jetpack Aviation Speeder Flying Motorcycle

Mar 6, 2019

Back in the 1950s, everyone figured that by 2019 we’d all have flying cars and be living in the clouds like The Jetsons. While that hasn’t quite happened, we’re not that far away from personal aerial vehicles as a means of normal transport. That’s especially true since Jetpack Aviation has just started taking orders for their Speeder flying motorcycle.

Powered by a quartet of jet turbines capable of 750 foot-pounds of thrust, this sci-fi flier looks like a hoverbike ripped out of the Star Wars universe. And it’s got an impressive bit of performance to match, boasting a 20-minute flight time at speeds of up to 150 mph and a maximum altitude of 15,000 feet. To cope with all that power, Jetpack Aviation also had the foresight to equip it with a 360-degree auto guidance system capable of avoiding collisions, even at higher speeds. Powered by your choice of kerosene or diesel, this fly-by-wire motorcycle is priced at $380,000 with a $10,000 down payment.

Purchase: $350,000
