I hate two-wheelers, but for the LMV 496 I would have been cut up on the spot. This time, Lazareth has published a trailer that shows a motorcycle that combines four wheels, jet engines and the ability to transform into a hoverbike.
The design comes from the French designer Ludovic Lazareth, who definitely doesn’t know what half measures are. A short video shows us the LMV 496 in its full, though not very detailed, glory, giving the impression that this model has a lot of the LM-847, which was surprised by a 470hp Maserati engine. However, LMV (La Moto Volante – Flying Motorcycle) is not the power to make the biggest impression, but the possibility of transforming a motorcycle into a hoverbike. All thanks to rotating wheels, the hub of which was enriched with a powerful jet turbine. Finally, we get something like a 4-propeller drone … the refueling frequency of which I can not even imagine.
We can be sure that the LMV 496 is not a fake as it was developed with the German company Jetcat, which provided Lazareth with the turbines mentioned. The only question is how the French managed to create something so advanced, which in addition can actually rise several meters with its (probably) enormous weight. More information and presentations will reach us on January 31, 2019, when the company is to open the curtain that covers its enigmatic and definitely revolutionary project.
