In addition, the LMV 496 is a motorcycle by design. However, the difference is its flying ability. The placement of its four wheels is side-by-side. So, the two wheels appear to be one; thanks to its design.


First of all, the concept has very similar design elements to the LM847 model. The elements like carbon wheel-cover, the rear loop, and side of the trim resemble the LM847 model.

Furthermore, Lazareth LMV 496’s composite body hides the kerosene tank; providing autonomy of ten minutes of flight. The light steering and riding position gives immediate handling. In addition, running gear technology & braking take inspiration from other Lazareth vehicles. The TFX suspension technology delivers a smoother ride.

Furthermore, the turbines are attached to every wheel and can rotate at 96000rpm. When you switch on the flying mode, the wheels with the turbine align themselves horizontally. Then the turbines propel the motorcycle into the sky.

In conclusion, Lazareth LMV 496 is the coolest flying motorcycle we have ever seen. It feels like a futuristic motorcycle shown in a sci-fi movie. With this machine, people can ride as well as fly whichever way it suits them. However, we can clearly say that people will fly rather than ride on this in the near future.
