A scooter that you can ride on the road and on water too! Say hello to Gibbs Biski


  • Meet Gibbs Biski, no other motorcycle can do the things it can do on a surface no other two-wheeler can go on. So, you've guessed it by now, the Biski is effectively an amphibious creature - can dwell on land and water.

  • Gibbs Biski, a 55hp twin cylinder engine scooter, runs on land like any other normal two-wheeler, however it can transform into something special at the flick of a button. It only takes it five seconds to be water ready. This amphibious scooter is the brain chile of a company based in New Zealand called Gibbs Amphibians, which specialises in amphibious vehicles.

  • The Biski can do an impressive 130 km/h on land and about 60 km/h on water. When you ride it onto water from land, Biski transforms into its jet-ski style version by retracting the rear wheel and starting the jet propulsion system.

  • The Biski weighs about 228 kg and has a body somewhat similar to a big touring motorcycle, however, it is all only hollow so as to allo floatation. While the bodywork will help it remain stable on water, I suspect it may hinder its ability to corner on regular black stripes on land which people use to commute! Everyday!

  • Granted it sounds like a great idea and concept, and the Biski is currently in development stage, but for now it is rather impractical and let's be honest it isn't all that pretty either.

  • Here's to hoping that the production ready version will be better and it will find customers who have to cross two-three lakes on their way to work every day.
