A.L.I. Technologies unveils XTURISMO limited edition hoverbike
Wednesday, 27 October 2021

A.L.I. Technologies Inc. (Main office: Tokyo, Minato-ku; CEO: Daisuke Katano; hereinafter A.L.I.) held an unveiling of their hoverbike, XTurismo Limited Edition, on the 26th of October 2021 at the Fuji Speedway Racecourse (Oyama City, Shizuoka Prefecture). The event consisted of a presentation by President and CEO, Daisuke Katano, followed by a manned flight demonstration.

The XTURISMO Limited Edition, a hoverbike developed by A.L.I., is an air mobility product that offers an unparalleled new experience of moving through the air. This hoverbike is being released as a limited design model, the first step of a line of products that will become a new icon of air mobility, which is expected to be used in a range of fields such as transportation in areas with inadequate infrastructure.

In his presentation, Daisuke Katano, President and Representative Director, said, “We will enable the emergency use of hoverbikes in times of disaster, and at the same time, promote the use of hoverbikes in entertainment in times of non-emergency. In order to implement this technology in society, we feel the need to first develop regulations and foster general recognition (social acceptability). We will develop this technology as an industry that can contribute to society.”

Moving forward, in addition to the development of aircrafts, we will actively work on the development of C.O.S.M.O.S., a flight management system that manages applications and operations for safe social implementation.

C.O.S.M.O.S. is a system for building sky roads (flight paths) and operating large number of air mobility vehicles and drones in the safest possible way. It is also being used in NEDO's drone demonstration tests.

At the presentation, a manned demonstration of the XTurismo Limited Edition was conducted, and the display model that is to be sold was exhibited. Additionally, the Sky Road was unveiled, and Kyocera exhibited a VR aircraft that allowed visitors to experience the sensation of driving the XTURISMO.

A.L.I. aims to become the global standard for air mobility, and the XTURISMO Limited Edition, which we are proposing as a limited-edition model of a product that will build a new airborne platform, will be available to order after the presentation on October 26, and is scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2022.
