Since its advent, the motorcycle industry and its engineers have never ceased to continue developing and evolving. As time has progressed, so have the capabilities and features of the technology used to help the industry evolve. With the recent development of the amphibious motorcycle, it’s evident that a new and exciting level of automotive innovation has been achieved.
The amphibious motorcycle is a new vehicular concept with the ability to operate on both water and land, transitioning between terrains in a quick and simple manner. When operating in water, the amphibious motorcycle – which resembles both a jet ski and a small motorcycle – raises its wheels and is guided by jets on each side of the wheel.
Gibbs Sports Amphibians Inc., the manufacturer of the Biski, Triski, and Terraquad amphibious motorcycles, employs a 55-horsepower twin cylinder engine in their vehicles. The unique motorcycles can offer speeds of up to 80 miles per hour (mph) on land and 37-45 mph on water. Switching modes between terrains typically takes a mere matter of seconds.
At this rate, the future of the automotive industry appears seemingly limitless. The development of the Biski, Triski, and Terraquad amphibious motorcycles illustrates unparalleled advancements within the automotive market, accompanied by the promise of continued innovation to develop even more distinct vehicle designs and capabilities.
