Default Amphibian Bike - I want one!

Now is this cool or what!?

Gibbs Technologies developing amphibious motorcycles

By Gary Gastelu
Published October 16, 2015FoxNews.com







Motorcycles are fun, and so are jet skis, but do you really need one of each?
Gibbs Technologies doesnít think so. Itís figured out how to combine them into a two-wheel amphibious vehicle it calls the Biski, which features a boat-like hull that lets you ride it on land or sea.


It uses a 2-cylinder motorcycle engine thatís connected to a water jet, and wheels retract and tuck into the hull when you ride it into the drink. Gibbs VP of Marketing Tom Berchulc says the 55 horsepower vehicle can hit 80 mph on land and 37 mph on water

Cool bit of engineering but, like anything dual purpose it won't do anything good.
