Imagine you having a motorbike that can fly and you are stucked in a traffic, all you have to do is press a button and you fly out of there. Good news! The flying motorcycle is no longer an imaginary vehicle, but a reality. The first operational prototype is called Lazareth LMV 496, and this brand new model was designed by a team of French engineers.

The Lazareth company is renowned for building enviable motorbikes. However, the LMV 496 La Moto Volante, which is “the flying motorcycle” in French, is more than just a motorbike. It’s basically an upgrade of the Maserati V8-powered four-wheeled beast released some years ago, but it’s an upgrade that has unlimited possibilities. 

It is a four-wheel electric motorcycle. Each of them is, at the same time, an air rotor. Once the bike goes into flight mode, the wheel slowly moves into a horizontal orientation as the motorbike is propelled into the air. The wheels rotate until they are placed horizontally, and the motorcycle becomes a quadcopter that can be raised at least a couple of meters.


The most exciting feature of the LMV 496 is the 96,000 rpm JetCat jet turbine installed in each of the bike’s 4 wheel hubs. The turbine acts to propel the motorbike into the sky when the flying mode is activated. The activation involves pressing a simple switch on your bike’s dashboard.

The LMV 496 shares a striking resemblance with the LM847. The motorbike is equipped with a kerosene tank that is expertly concealed by a composite body. The kerosene tank supplies enough fuel to power about 10 minutes of flight. While in flight, the dashboard displays essential flight information such as speed, position, altitude, etc. The handling and driving position are imitations of earlier models of Lazareth vehicles.

Ludovic Lazareth, the engineer behind the racing car, explains that the LMV 496 is road approved. He presents his precious mechanical baby like an “electric motorcycle approved for riding on the road, which turns into a drone.”

All the wheels also have parachutes that open quickly, in case of problems during the flight. This bike can be controlled with a joystick or handlebar while flying in the air. The maximum load supported is one tonne.

The company claims that they have built this 140 kg bike in such a way that anyone can drive it. Its seats are made very comfortable, and its steering is very light.

Although Lazareth states that it is the world’s first flying motorcycle, there are others, even for sale. But it is true that the Lazareth LMV 496 is the only one that, in addition to flying, can also travel on the road.

However, the prices of this bike will blow your senses. It is more valuable than the world’s most expensive cars. The folks at Lazareth have announced five of them will be produced, with a price tag of $560,000 each. Are you ready to fly?
