WHAT DOES WETBIKE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Wetbike

A WetBike is a planing water motor cycle that is often described as cross between a motorcycle and a jet ski. The original Wetbike was introduced in 1978 by Spirit Marine, a subsidiary of Arctic Enterprises. The Wetbike is challenging to ride, because it does require a good deal of balance. It was powered by a Suzuki 2 stroke engine, and a small pump-jet. During the latter years of Wetbikes there were considerable advances such as 60hp Suzuki 800cc engines, and the Metton hulls, which were much lighter than previous models. Eventually the Wetbike gave way to the new personal water craft such as the Yamaha WaveRunner, mainly because they are much easier to ride. They were last produced in 1992. The original Wetbike was designed by Nelson Tyler, who became well known for his film industry camera mounts known as the "Tyler Mount". The design was sold to Kawasaki later.
