The Helicycle - Hammacher Schlemmer

$395k

Hammacher Schlemmer

This is the two-seat vehicle that converts from a three-wheeled motorcycle to a gyrocopter in 10 minutes. A 230-hp, four-cylinder engine powers the craft to a maximum 112 mph in the air or on the road. When driven as a street-legal vehicle, it accelerates from 0-60 mph in under eight seconds, with a proprietary tilting system that provides the agility of a motorcycle. When travel by air is desired, the craft’s propeller, rotor, and dual rudders deploy in 10 minutes. Though it resembles a helicopter, the gyrocopter's non-powered overhead rotor spins as a result of the forward motion of the vehicle to provide lift. Designed to cruise at low altitudes (below 4,000'), it only requires a 540' runway for takeoffs (just 100' for landings). Its 27-gal. gas tank provides a 220-mile flight range (750 miles on the road), ideal for day trips from The Hamptons to Martha’s Vineyard. Carbon fiber, titanium, and aluminum construction. Includes comprehensive training. Requires Sports Pilot Certificate. Special conditions and guarantee limitations apply. As motorcycle: 13' L x 5' 3" W x 5' 3" H. (Empty weight 1,499 lbs.)
