Dubai police will soon be using flying motorcycle "hoverbikes"

Dubai’s police force is set to add a series of hoverbikes to their vehicle fleet, with speeds of up to 70 km/h (43 mph) on electric power. The Scorpion hoverbike, created by Hoversurf, is a single-seat aircraft using a quadcopter blades. It is a unique electric-powered vessel combining a motorcycle seat with quadcopter drone technology, bringing speed, agility and stability of flight to the hands of amateur and professional navigators. It can even fly unmanned with a top speed close to 100 km/h. The bike can fly for up to 25 minutes and requires a recharge time of around 3 hours, but batteries can be swapped if a longer flight period is required. Dubai is no stranger to adopting incredible new technologies. An autonomous robot and drone acting as a mobile surveillance unit was recently deployed to its streets, and an electric passenger drone taxi service may even be introduced to Dubai’s residents soon.
