    What? 320HP Ducati-Inspired Jet Ski With Twin Ducati 1098 Engines


    Long ago, Kawasaki penned the JS440 as the “dirt bike of the water.” And rightfully so. It was lightweight, agile, nimble and a whole lot of fun. But as current personal watercraft have evolved, grown and matured, so has the comparison. Today’s full-sized runabouts are supercharged, option-loaded, technological powerhouses, and so the stripped-down dirt bike analogy doesn’t quite fit.

    Rather, many regard today’s watercraft to modern superbikes. And the comparison sticks. That’s why the release of a handful of computer-generated designs from Zolland Design AB are making such big waves. The design company’s renderings of Ducati-inspired personal watercraft – replete with twin Ducati 1098 engines – has gone viral, and frankly, we’re a little late on reporting on it.

    Yeah, it's an interesting concept but there's a lot of catching up to do if they want to hang with what the three OEMs are doing.

    A headlight? An air intake that's open to the front of the craft to take on water? Random traction mats on the front of the ski under the headlight? A sticker on the side that looks like a bicycle frame? The seat doesn't look exactly rough water friendly... and the windshield will break off the first time you hit a wave...

    This UNIT isn't adding up for me, either this is a joke, or it has been designed by someone who has never ridden a PWC before.

    It's merely a computer design meant to incorporate as much Ducati architecture as possible. Again, it's not a serious proposal but more of a fun "what if?"
