This is pretty cool and if it comes out I bet it would be a lot of fun.

Too bad they did not show it hurdling any speed bumps. That could get quite messy. On the hairpin turn it was also very slow to maneuver so it did not scrape the floorboards on the pavement. Too many contacts with the ground will make it useless in the water. If it had a livewell under the seat it could be much more useful.

Dang!!!! Amen to the livewell. And, if this thing could extend a set of wings and go airborne, I think I'd get in line for it.Laughing

DerrillW, I see you have iso grips on your ride. What brand and model number are they? I have large hands and some of those would be great,

I think it is pretty cool but it almost bottomed out when it first went into the lake, and the ground seemed pretty smooth. But it is 135 hp so I wonder how it rides on the interstate. I also wonder if you would get stuck in the softer mud or sand when trying to just ride out of a lake. I almost think you would need to take a boat ramp. But it is cool though.

Model 6241  (7/8" dia.) will work nicely on the SW and you will appreciate the quality and finish. The larger diameter is more comfortable.

Interesting to look at but as usual just too much of a compromise. Like amphibious aircraft, you lose a lot of performance to try to be a lousy boat. Funny that I knew that but bought a Lake Amphibian anyway. It turned out that the old axiom was true. Slow airplane, lousy boat.

I like this one better than the three-wheelers and sidebyside seaters that are classed as motorcycles and cost as much as a 747 ( to me, anyway).
I suspect that this one would cost as much as a Harley and a jetski. So, what would be the selling point? more space in your garage, assuming you even have a garage.
