Students of Netaji Subhash University of Technology in Delhi have converted the Triumph Daytona 675 into a manned aerial vehicle but they are using it unmanned for safety reasons. The project is named Sokorro.
Meet the engineering college students of Netaji Subhash College of Expertise in Delhi who transformed the Triumph 675 Daytona Superbike into a hoverbike prototype. Impressed with the idea of BMW’s R 1200GS hoverbike design, Siddhant Sharma first conceived the concept, and revealed it again in 2017. The concept attracted engineering scholars and they noted the potential of a reasonably priced hoverbike in a jam-packed setting in Delhi. They finally reached their friends and different batch mates and Dax Lacra and Sourav Vaid came here and Mission Sokoro was born.

Initially a workforce of 5 people, these engineering college students got together to start the mission and will begin mid-2019 with principle and analysis. Initially, the boys considered starting with the Dear Jet Engine but the affordable price was one of the many factors to achieve the mass market, they nullified the propellers. By July 2020, he had bought his first bike to start work, which was the Kawasaki Ninja 250. The task force determined that the 32-inch propellers were installed in the ninja, but were ultimately unable to produce Kawasaki’s parallel-twin. The pressure he wanted to fly.

Armed with a contemporary setback, the workforce began searching for a motorcycle with enough power to defeat the air-drag restrictions they were going through. At that time Daksh and Sourav turned their attention to Siddhant’s every day sprinter, a Triumph Daytona 675 and he obliged. The Daytona engine introduced several benefits to the mission. It is a robust three-cylinder, producing 118.5 PS of power and 70.2 Nm of torque. More importantly, however, it was simply too mild at 47kgs compared to the different options because the Suzuki Hayabusa engine, while capable of running around 100kgs.

When the Point Improvement began, Kovid-19 inspired lockdowns were implemented, although the task force managed to keep up with the operation. The initial improvement of the ‘Flying Bike’ began at a workshop in Mayapuri, West Delhi. The imagination chassis is built by knowledgeable mechanics from the economic space. The bike was set aside and fitted to a brand new chassis with all the electrical. In September 2020, they moved to a different store in late 2021 for additional modifications and check runs before placing the prototype on the NSUT campus at Dwarka Round.
On April 12, 2022, the task force’s flying bike made its first prestigious lift-off, and TOI cameras were in place to capture the second. All three mechanical engineers were enthusiastic. He was the second in a long line of sightings when the bike held a steady flight at millimeters above the ground for more than 8 seconds. It is secured in an advanced security rig in the tennis courtroom on the NSUT campus.
It is now one year since Siddhant, Sourav and Daksh achieved their degree in Manufacturing Processes and Automation Engineering. The trio, who are eight engineers, had to pay Rs 15 lakh from their own pocket to deliver the ‘Flying Bike’ to this stage. Currently the trio have found themselves in the midst of a dream to supply enough hoverbikes for enough people or to pursue additional research and a stable future as the rest of their former employees.
Speaking about Socorro’s future, Siddhant Sharma mentioned, ‘In an era where most startups in India are able to raise money in the hundreds of thousands, we want the authorities processes to be more clear. Engineers like us can have a platform to simply pitch our ideas and ideas. I consider that a mission like ours has full potential for mass-market hoverbike resolution and we would love to have the opportunity to point out to our executives and different business players what we can get if we get the help we need to continue
The bike is controlled by a remote control connected to a mobile phone. The throttle is also controlled by the same remote. However, Even after some electronic problems, the motorcycle is able to fly.
