The force (see what I did there?) unveiled its new Hoversurf Scorpion craft at the Gitex Technology Week conference, according to UAE English language publication Gulf News. The police force will use the hoverbike for emergency response scenarios, giving officers the ability to zoom over congested traffic conditions by taking to the air.

The Russian-made craft is electric (fully) and can handle the load of up to 600 pounds and can be used for 25 minutes per charge with 43mph Speed. The Scorpion can fly autonomously for four miles for emergencies.
