(Scroll down for video) A new motorcycle that allows drivers to feel like James Bond of 007, will hit the market soon, GIBBS Sports Amphibians Inc said in a statement.
The Biski is truly unique. As a single seat, twin jet motorcycle, it is a world’s first in many ways.
At just 2.3 meters long and under 1 meter wide, it is the smallest of all Gibbs high speed amphibious platforms, and probably the most technically advanced.
It represents true freedom for the individual and serious fun.
The company said that the twin jet motorcycle can travel up to 37 miles per hour in the water.
In a video of the product, the company shows the motorcycle driving along a winding road like a regular bike before reaching the shore of a river.
It is driven directly into the water and within 5 seconds,the vehicle is seen cruising across the river. The bike is capable of reaching up to 87 miles per hour on the road, and it is very stable despite the high speed.
The retraction process takes just five seconds at the touch of a single switch, which allows for a perfect and simplistic transition between land and water modes.
