    I have seen them before. The hulls look like Polaris knock-offs. I actually think that the molds may have made their way to China. Maybe someone from this board who worked in the Polaris PWC department could let us know what happened to the tooling.

    BTW, so far the Chinese knock-offs are illegal to import in to Canada and the US due to emission standards.

    Regarding the video, judging by the amount of grime in the bottom of the hull, that is an actual used Virage hull and engine, complete with MFI display laying in there.

    It looks like the video was made during the evaluation of the genuine article, prior to making the knock off versions.
