Suzuki's new flying motorcycle/Nueva moto voladora de Suzuki

in #science2 years ago


The Japanese startup SkyDrive has reached a collaboration agreement with the Suzuki company, also Japanese, to develop its new flying motorcycle that they intend to present to the general public in the next year 2025, taking advantage of the fact that the Osaka World Expo is being held in that year, also in Japan.

La startup japonesa SkyDrive ha llegado a un acuerdo de colaboración con la empresa Suzuki también japonesa para desarrollar su nueva motocicleta voladora que pretenden presentar al gran público en el próximo año 2025 aprovechando que en ese año se celebra la Exposición Universal de Osaka.también en Japón.

Despite being a company created only 3 years ago, SkyDrive Inc. is already one of the leading manufacturers of flying vehicles in Japan and the only company in the country that has carried out manned test flights and is currently developing an electric flying vehicle with two seats similar to a motorcycle.

A pesar de ser una empresa creada hace tan solo 3 años, SkyDrive Inc. ya es uno de los principales fabricantes de vehículos voladores de Japón y la única empresa del país que ha realizado vuelos de prueba tripulados y actualmente están desarrollando un vehículo volador eléctrico con dos asientos similar a una motocicleta.


This means that they have just over three years left to produce this flying motorcycle on a large scale, but SkyDrive has very little production capacity and this is where the agreement with the SUZUKI company can be of great help because it has a great production, assembly and distribution capacity.

Esto quiere decir que les quedan poco más de tres años para conseguir producir esta moto voladora a gran escala, pero SkyDrive tiene muy poca capacidad de producción y aquí es donde el acuerdo con la empresa SUZUKI puede ser de gran ayuda pues posee una gran capacidad de ensamblaje y distribución.

The motorcycle measures 4 meters long x 4 wide and 2 high with a weight of 400 kilos, it can reach a maximum speed of 100 km/h and a height of up to 500 meters thanks to 8 propellers, each one moved by an electric motor powered by batteries, the bad thing is that at the moment it only has a maximum autonomy of between 20 and 30 minutes.

La moto mide 4 metros de largo x 4 de ancho y 2 de alto con un peso de 400 kilos, puede alcanzar una velocidad máxima de 100 km/h a una altura de hasta 500 metros gracias a 8 hélices, cada una movida por un motor eléctrico alimentado por baterías, lo malo es que de momento solo tiene una autonomía máxima de entre 20 y 30 minutos.


With regard to safety, according to its creators, the motorcycle has a DEP (Distributed Electric Propulsion) system that guarantees that the motorcycle can continue to fly and land even if one or two of the engines or propellers fail, in addition to have a solid anti-roll bar that protects the occupant, although I suppose that if it falls from 150m the bar will be of little use.

En lo que respecta a la seguridad, según sus creadores, la moto dispone de un sistema DEP (Distributed Electric Propulsion) que garantiza que la moto puede seguir volando y aterrizar incluso si uno o dos de los motores o de las hélices fallasen,.además de contar con una sólida barra antivuelco que protege al ocupante, aunque supongo que si se cae desde 150m la barra sirva de poco.

The official organizations of Economy, Trade and Industry, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of the Japanese country have prepared a plan to start testing in 2023, make the official presentation at the World Expo in Osaka in 2025 and prepare for large-scale deployment by 2030.

Los organismos oficiales de Economía, Comercio e Industria, Infraestructura,Transporte y Turismo del país nipón han preparado una planificación para empezar a hacer las pruebas en 2023, hacer la presentación oficial en la Exposición Universal de Osaka en 2025 y preparar el despliegue a gran escala para el 2030.

An amazing invention and a remarkable progress, I love flying especially if I'm alone. But imagine if accidents occur, we will witness deaths in the air and upon impact. the project is still in experimental stage
