The world’s first ever motorcycle featuring a built-in drone has been announced by Ural Motorcycles.

Named the Ural Air, the bike can launch a radio-controlled aircraft from a sidecar compartment.

Ural has incorporated the DJI Spark Remote Combo in a bid to help riders tackle demanding driving conditions.

According to a report from the British Motorcycle Federation, the drone is released from a hatch and can be operated by the sidecar passenger from a hard-mounted remote control.

The compartment, designed by Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, also features a USB port and a selfie stick.

The Ural Motorcycles website claims that the limited edition model has been designed to give bikers an elevated point of vision.

The model uses the company’s 749cc motorbike and comes in a grey metallic colour. Only 40 units will be manufactured worldwide at a cost of $17,999 (£14,000).

It is scheduled for release from November 2018.
