Best Underwater Motorcycle Created in Russia

34-year-old brothers Dmitry and Timophey Ryabikiny from the Russian city of Yeisk have created Aqua Star an original underwater motorcycle with technical characteristics excelling foreign analogues.
      The underwater motorcycle allows going underwater without any special equipment: the body of a motorcycle rider stays in water and the head in a kind of helmet serving as a diving-bell and is equipped with an air supplying system. The electronic motors of the motorcycle let it move in all directions underwater.
      Compared to some foreign analogues, such as, for instance, Breathing Observation Bubble/Scuba Scuta, the developers of the Russian Aqua Star used even glass for the helmet instead of spherical glass that distorts the divers visibility and makes the eyes get tired. The helmet of Aqua Star motorcycle also has an airflow system to prevent the glass steam up.

      The motorcycle by the Russian developers has two motors instead of one; the second motor lets the rider regulate the motorcycles position underwater by simply pressing and holding a button, and also lets the motorcycle hang at any point and turn around on the spot. The motorcycle can freely be used at a depth of up to 12 metres and ride with 7km/h speed.
      The developers say that next summer they are going to sell Aqua Star to diving centres and organize its rent. At the moment the Ryabikiny brothers are planning to design a two-seat motorcycle.
