A Japanese startup is hoping to make a leap into the transportation sector and convince car owners to abandon it and replace it with a $680,000 hoverbike.

ALI Technologies put its flying bike, called the X-Turismo Limited Edition, for sale in Japan earlier on Wednesday.

The Tokyo-based start-up has received huge support from Japanese electronics giant Mitsubishi, as well as Japanese football player Keisuke Honda.

ALA Technologies says that the bicycle can fly for 40 minutes at a speed of up to 100 km / h on a single electric charge.
