Aerofex was immediately inundated with phone calls, emails, and messages because their hoverbike, the Aero-X, was the transportation vehicle we've all wanted since we were kids. Fast forward to the present, and the company has finally officially announcedВ that well be able to buy our own Aero-X in just a few years, in 2017, for around $85,000. And if you want in now, you can put down a $5000 deposit to save a spot in line.
The commercial version of the Aero-X will basically be a motorcycle-like hovercraft. Set to hover around 12 feet above the ground, the bike can reach speeds up to 44 miles per hour. Although that seems a little slow (compared to actual motorcycles) the idea was to create something that wouldnt send its passenger flyings off if they reached super high speeds. The bike supports a total of two riders, and because it hovers, doesn't need any roads, or even solid ground.
