It`s the future of travel and a step closer to the Hover Boards we all dreamt about from Back to The Future! You can now get your hands on these hover scooters for the modest price of $16999.95 (US).
It levitates inches off the ground powered by an engine-powered fan, and a stream of air exiting a vent in the back provides light forward thrust. Learning to control this beast is said to take under 5 minutes and you don`t need any previous surfing or skating experience.
To go in a particular direction the rider simply leans left or right so no need for complex controls. A throttle and clutch mounted on the handlebar allow precise control of engine power while skimming along. To increase acceleration, the rider leans back slightly while gripping the handlebar, and the friction drive wheel at the underside rear of the scooter makes contact with the ground, increasing speed up to a maximum of approximately 15 mph.
The hovering scooter deftly glides over level, solid ground such as concrete, asphalt, or well-groomed grass, free of debris, sand, stones, and other obstacles. It can even travel up minor inclines. Stopping is as easy as releasing the throttle and clutch controls and allowing the hovering scooter to gently coast to a halt over a distance of approximately twenty feet. It`s powered by a four-stroke internal combustion engine that operates for approximately one hour on a full tank of unleaded petrol.
