  • The Dubai Police Force hover bike is undergoing trails.

  • But this one hit trouble and crashed.

  • Thankfully the pilot got away unhurt.

The Dubai made headlines when they announced the purchase a batch of hover bikes. But what many feared had come through in this crash video of the Dubai Police Force Hover bike.

The video shows personnel carrying out field tests of the Hoversurf contraption, which resembles a large man-carrying drone.

He first took off straight up, before punching the machine forward aggressively as if to simulate a pursuit. He let go of his right hand for some reason, looking more like a rodeo rider as the hover bike struggled to stabilize. According to other media sources, he was trying to signal that he was in trouble to the ground crew.

The bike then started losing altitude at a hurry and smashed tail-first onto the ground. The rider rolled away quickly from the machine, thankfully.

One other fear, besides falling from great heights, are the open rotors that spin at thousands of RPM. But they seemed to have broken in the crash. They are made of carbon fibre, by the way, and those things are stiff, unless the Hoversurf is equipped with a system to stop or release them during impact.

The Dubai Police Force purchased the Hoversuf at US$ 150,000 a pop for the intention of patrolling the city. A charge could last for 25 minutes at 70 km/h. The machine could be piloted by a human or via remote control.

  • The Dubai Police have added eight Ducati Panigale V4 R to their fleet.

  • They already own a stable of luxury cars.

  • The bikes will allow them to zip through traffic easier.

Forget about Miami Vice or Bad Boys, it’s the Dubai Police who have the hottest fleet of vehicles, now that’ve added eight units of the Ducati Panigale V4 R.

In case you don’t know, the Panigale V4 R is the homologation model for the Ducati WorldSBK race bike. In other words, it’s a street-legal superbike racer. Although at 1000cc compared to the V4 and V4 S’s 1103cc, the V4 R’s Desmosedici Stradale engine produces more power, rated at 221 bhp in stock form. The race ECU and Akrapovic exhaust bumps it up to 234 bhp.

Yes, it’s the most powerful 1000cc superbike.

The Dubai five-o (Police Department) already owns a fleet that’ll make millionaires jealous, consisting of the Audi R8, Lamborghini Huracan, Nissan GT-R; various Bentleys, BMWs and a Bugatti Veyron. That’s not all, a Lykan HyperSport also joined the force in May this year.

However, the Ducatis allow the cops to zip through traffic much easier compared to the cars. The tweet shows that a Formula 2 car was also pressed into service along with the Ducatis.

So, there’s absolutely no way of “shaking the cops like this by keeping that Porsch in fifth” (borrowing the words from a Sir-Mix-A-Lot song).


  • Telah tersebar desas-desus yang mengatakan bahawa Jabatan Polis Dubai bakal menggunakan bantuan hoverbike sebagai sebahagian daripada kelengkapan pasukan petugasnya dalam masa yang terdekat.
  • Menurut sebuah syarikat dari Russia, Hoversurf International, hoverbike buatan istimewa mereka telah lulus ujian ekstrim bahang haba dan debu.
  • Jentera satu pelana janaan elektrik itu menggunakan empat kipas helikopter mini yang mampu menanggung beban sekitar 300kg sewaktu bergerak pada kelajuan 40km/j selama 25 minit pada satu-satu masa.


Some say that the Dubai Police will soon employ the assistance of hoverbikes as part of their task force in the near future.

According to Russian company Hoversurf International, their specially-made hoverbike has passed extreme tests when it comes to heat and dust.

The electric-powered single-seat machine uses four mini helicopter propellers that is able to carry around 300kg while going at 40km/h for over 25 minutes at a time.

The future is now, ladies and gentlemen. According to the folks over at Hoversurf International, they will soon provide a few of their groundbreaking hoverbikes to the Dubai Police task force. This particular model will be based on their very successful Scorpion (S-3) concept. (more…)
