A VEHICLE UNRESTRICTED
We want a superbike unlike any other.
A bike that goes faster, goes farther, and goes smarter.
Our superbike will define a new class of not only motorcycles, but vehicles on this planet. It will sail above the ground, and its only limiting factor will be air.
Capable of high speeds and built with applicability in mind, we seek to create the first practical hoverbike. Other 'hoverbikes' either utilize large propellors or water to achieve lift, both of which are large and dangerous lift systems. ROSA's hoverbike will be unparalleled both in design and applicability.
THE FUTURE OF TRANSPORTATION
For the past century, the motorcycle defined high-performance motorsport. Increasingly more powerful engines led to increasingly faster and capable machines - the likes of which became popular worldwide. However, the world's greatest motorcycles all suffer from one drastic flaw, without exception. This flaw is the limitation of friction.
The superbike my company is developing, Project Helios, sets out to do something different. Unlike any ever devised - it will travel on or above the ground. Helios has a drivetrain - that is, one with an electric motor and supersport-level hardware. However, that is only part of its story. It is also powered by several flight engines, within our hover system, allowing it to reach new levels of vehicle performance. As a result of overcoming friction, its only limitation is air resistance. This allows the superbike, in certain configurations, to reach speeds in excess of 300 mph, surpassing all other forms of land transportation. Meanwhile, it is envisioned to achieve this sustainably.
As a result, I have had to rethink the entire nature of the motorcycle.
Helios incorporates a drivetrain that retracts into its structure when hover functionality begins. It doesn't use an internal combustion engine, and that does not even take into account its flight systems.
I do not exaggerate the fact that Project Helios could change the world. The introduction of such a vehicle would allow the affordable high-speed transport of riders and cargo in a sustainable way. In addition, the potential it offers in applications such as with EMS, Medical, or Military transport could be groundbreaking and save lives. I urge you to visit the pages describing these applications in more detail.
My company, ROSA, was founded to create a more incredible vehicle.
If all of these components are combined to work together, they work with a fluidity and efficiency never before seen in automotive design. You are looking at the epitome of ingenuity and vehicle performance.
