designed to smoothly transition from the land to water, the ‘biski’ is an amphibious motorcycle that changes function at the push of a button. with almost no delay it converts to jet-skis, retracting wheels out of the way and switching to jet propulsion. the switch from ‘road’ mode to ‘water’ mode is done in less than five seconds, so riders barely lose momentum as they ride in or out of the water.

created by new zealand-based entrepreneur alan gibbs, his company has distinguished itself by creating amphibious vehicles that can reach high speeds on both land and water alike. the machine weighs 500 lbs and features a 55 hp twin-cylinder petrol engine that is capable of speeds of 129 km/h (80 mph) on the roads, and can travel across water at 59 km/h (37 mph). the ‘biski’ weighs 500 lbs and has a 55hp twin cylinder petrol engine, and it also features lights suitable for both road and marine navigation. a video released by the company shows the amphibious bike been driven along a winding road, before the rider reaches the edge of a river. it is driven straight into the water and is shooting off along the water within a matter of seconds .

  • Absolutely amazing machine…. Where and when can we have a closer look at one ? Any idea about pricing yet ?

  • A beautiful concept and design. As someone who has owned motorbikes and boats that are petroleum fuelled, cooled and lubricated I know how “oily” these engines are…
    So, how does one expect to not leave an oil slick on the water when in “jetski” mode? That wouldn’t be very eco-friendly? The noise jetskis make on water is also a very obnoxious to person not riding one…including disturbing wildlife.
