With increasing congestion and aggravation involved in getting around these days, it's nice to know that you can still get there in style. Anyone can offer you basic transportation, but Morpheus International believes its customers deserve the very best in comfort, luxury, and uniqueness. After all, who wants to drive the same thing everybody else does? At Morpheus we understand that how you arrive is often as important as arriving the first place. And so we are pleased to finally offer you our Urban Thunder series of Hoverbikes.
The Urban Thunder series of Hoverbikes are essentially enclosed ejection bucket seats on a Vectored-Thrust UAV chassis. They feature new technology to bring the Low Altitude Vehicle, more commonly known as the LAV, to civilian life. Featuring cockpit style controls and easy to use features, the series has ample thrust and space to transport even the largest of modern passengers in comfort.
The Lightning Solo is the single passenger model, hosting an ejection bucket seat and ample storage space directly behind the seat inside an enclosed canopy that when open provides access for both pilot & cargo.
The The Chain Lightning is a two passenger model, with a pair of ejection seats one behind the other. The second seat mounts duplicate controls, should anything happen to the pilot. These controls can be set to override the pilots controls at any time, to take over should the primary controls be disabled, or completely deactivated from a switch in the pilot's position.
Made to look like an enclosed motorcycle when not in use this craft features anti-theft systems and a build in transponder that can be activated from a remote unit that the owner is given at purchase. This transponder can be used to track the vehicle for up to 30 kilometers. The police have found this to be an excellent way to catch would be thieves.

* The UCAS government requires that any person purchasing a LAV register the transponder code with the government. They also require that any person purchasing a LAV be certified for use. The certification is usually taken care of by the company that the person purchases the LAV from and is included in the price. These training sessions usually take the form of a weekend retreat at the end of which the purchasing party is presented with their License to operate a LAV and their new vehicle.
>>>>[You should note however that the transponder can be easily removed to free up more space. Removing the transponder adds two cf to the already available five. Also the vehicle can be modified to carry weapons and is one of the fastest Low flyers available to the public.]<<<< -Wix(20:04:17/1-11-55)
