Amazing scooter that turns into a 37mph JET SKI – just like a James Bond movie

World News

GENIUS engineers have created a scooter that turns into a jet ski at the flick of a switch.

The Biski mirrors the similar machine driven by James Bond in 1977 classic The Spy Who Loved Me.

Roger Moore piloted the "Wetbike" that could go on land and water – just like the Biski can.

Created by Nuneaton firm, Gibbs Sports Amphibians, the Biski has a floating chassis and retractable wheels.

Two water jets can then propel the vehicle at speeds of up to 37mph.

And it takes just five seconds for the scooter to turn into a jet ski.


The company states: "The Biski is truly unique as a single seat (or single plus pillion), twin jet, HSA Motorcycle, it is a world's first in many ways.

"It represents true freedom for the individual – serious fun."

A video posted by the company shows the bike first being driven along a winding road much like a normal scooter before it then reaches the edge of a river.

It is driven straight into the water and within seconds is shooting off at high speed along the water.

Gibbs claims the bike, which weighs just 500lbs, is capable of reaching up to 87mph on the road thanks to a 55bhp twin-cylinder petrol engine.

Despite it's on-road abilities, it's highly stable when in the water, too.


And it even comes with lights suitable for both road and marine navigation.

The technology uses a single engine to provide power both in the water and on land.

A patented suspension system allows the wheels to be lifted clear of the water.

The company said: "Without the drag of the wheels the amphibians can reach higher water speeds as a planing vessel.

"The retraction process takes just five seconds at the touch of a single switch, allowing a seamless and simplistic transition between land and water modes."
