Most people associate Honda with cars and motorcycles, but the Japanese auto manufacturer can also help you travel through the air.

The latest HondaJet Elite six-seater aircraft is priced at $5.25 million.

The company describes it as "the fastest, furthest and highest-flying plane in its class." The private jet has a top speed of 486 miles-per-hour and a range of 1,437 nautical miles.

The aircraft features six, two-toned executive leather seats, according to Honda Aircraft company, with two cockpit seats in addition to another four seats in the jet's climate-controlled, 12-foot cabin.

Behind the cabin is a private bathroom with skylights and a seat-belt (and it can be converted into an extra seat).

The new Elite jet's two engines have been updated with a noise attenuating inlet structure that Honda says "greatly reduces high frequency noise to enhance cabin quietness."

The aircraft also comes with 66 cubic feet of cargo storage space in the rear and front of the plane. It's is classified as a "very light jet" (or VLJ).

Unveiled in May 2018, the Elite is an updated version of the twin-engine Honda HA-420 HondaJet. The Honda Aircraft Company, a Greensboro, North Carolina-based subsidiary of Japan's Honda Motor Company, produced that, its first aircraft, in 2015.
