Water motor has been around for over half a century. However, it is a brand used by Kawasaki for the individual motorized water crafts line. Although the word “Jet Ski” has now become a more generic term that describes all individual boats. They will use it for special reference to the Kawasaki ships.
The Italian company Mival introduced its maritime Pleasure Cruiser, which requires users to hook into trades from behind. His big breakthrough, however, he was the conversion from the old outboard engine to an internal injection pump.
The scooters – like the earliest water they were originally called – were introduced to Europe in the 1950s among motorcycle makers looking to expand their market.
The British company Vincent produced about 2,000 of its Amanda water scooters in 1955. But it failed to create the new markets Vincent had hoped for. And he had to sell his ideas to Bombardier sleigh makers.
With the patent back in hand, Jacobsen went to Kawasaki, which launched its model in 1973. It was called with the name Jet Ski. It was a small audience, however, as remaining on the train while standing up, especially in choppy water remained a challenge.
The next decade planted the seeds for a boom in the popularity of water motorcycles. For one thing, new models have been introduced that allow riders to do what they can do back on old water scooters. The ability to sit down helps stabilize the pilot. New designs not only improve stability even more, but they allow for two riders at a time.
With further advances in engine and exhaust technology, today’s water bikes enjoy the new success found in all figures. They can travel faster than ever, reaching 60 miles per hour. And they sell more than any boat in the world.
