NG 300 Speedster Hovercycle
The Speedster, produced by Northern Gun, is one of the fastest, most maneuverable and affordable hovercycles on the market. It is fairly quiet, extremely reliable (can take a beating and keep on going), requires very little maintenance, and is capable of Vertical Take-Offs and Landings (VTOL), hover in mid-air, and handles like a dream. Northern Gun’s masterful sales campaign, the vehicle’s unique styling, excellent handling and frequent (typically 2-4 times a year) special promotions offering the vehicle at a 10-20% discount (for a limited time only!) and/or with an easy payment plan have made it common throughout the North American continent, outselling the nearest competitor 4 to 1.
