Gibbs adds to the fun with amphibious motorcycle
AMPHIBIAN creator Alan Gibbs has used the American International Motorcycle expo in Florida to launch three new outrageous recreational vehicles.
Not satisfied with making ridiculously fun-looking amphibious quad bikes, cars and trucks, Gibbs has now built two and three-wheeled motorcycles that you can ride straight into water.
Of the three, the Biski looks the most fun and most affordable. A cross between a Jet Ski and trike, the Biski is a street-legal yet amphibious motorcycle with a 55-horsepower, twin cylinder engine that can do 60 km/h on the water and 129 km/h on land.
Upon floating, a press of a button pulls the Biski’s rear wheel out of the way of the water jet in less than five seconds, while the aquaplaning of the now Jet Ski lifts the front wheel out of the water.
The Biski’s weight of only 228 kg pays silent testimony to Gibbs’s engineering skills, and a video shows what looks to be a very steady ride in the water.
