$150,000 HOVERBIKE revealed (Although you’ll only be able to fly it for 30 minutes until the batteries run out)

It may look horribly dangerous, and fly for less than half an hour a time, but Russian firm Hoversurf has shown off a working hoverbike.

The craft, which has already been sold to the Dubai Police force, is being shown off at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

It will fly 16 feet (5m) above the ground, reaching a top speed of 60mph (96 km) – although this will be limited to the legal speed in each country.

The craft has also been updated with a hybrid lithium-manganese-nickel battery, which has a flight time of between 10 and 25 minutes depending on the weather and pilot weight.

There is also a remote-controlled drone mode that reportedly offers up to 40 minutes flight time.

‘The dimensions of the hoverbike allow it to be rolled in a standard doorway while also having ability to take-off and land from an ordinary parking space,’ the firm says.

Buyers can preorder a Hoverbike S3 2019 with a US$10,000 deposit, and the full price is set at $150,000, and deliveries are slated to take place within two to six months from your time of reservation.
