Not sure who's going to buy it, and it looks like you'll need a car trailer to haul it.

Pretty cool but ground clearance looks low.

Okay. A vehicle that is both an ATV and a Jetski, does each job poorly compared to a Jetski or an ATV and costs more than both an ATV and a Jetski combined.



Notice that the govt is buying them.

Let's throw some helicopter blades on it and a mount for my 1919.



Actually it would probably be great fun to rent/test drive one. And if they become popular, probably in about 2 to 4 model generations it would be better designed/powered with less weight and more ground clearance.

Just think of all the ruptured blood vessels the envirokooks would have if these became popular. I can see heads exploding all over both coasts.

Stop it! You're making me want to buy one based on that alone!



For kicks, make the thing run on whale oil and have the seat covered in baby seal hide.

As usual these hybrids do not do anything particularly well, cost too much, are really complicated, don't offer parts and technical support and never really make an impact, I will pass.
