TOKYO: A Japanese firm is aiming to release a mass-market flying motorbike by 2022, its Chief Executive Officer has revealed.

Tokyo-based venture firm A.L.I. Technologies Inc., which primarily establishes tiny drones, wants to sell the product, called a «hover bike», in emerging economic climates in Africa, the Middle East and Asia with poor road facilities, The Japan Times reported.

«We’ll create a (flying) bike initially, in order to get flying automobiles extensively used in culture ultimately,» CEO Shuhei Komatsu claimed.

«Our float bike is a set of drone innovations,» he said, revealing self-confidence that his company can commercialise the flying bike.

The visualized vehicle will certainly utilize propeller power to float lots of centimetres in the air. It will remain at the wanted altitude through modern technologies that make use of sensors to prevent barriers.
