Watch a Sea-Doo Jet Ski Race a 3 Wheeled Motorcycle Around the Edge of Manhattan

Drive host and former Jalopnik editor Mike Spinelli recently challenged Jalopnik’s Andrew Collins to a special kind-of race around the perimeter of Manhattan: See-Doo vs. Trike.

The battle might seem like a no-brainer on paper, but on the road and in the water, it’s anything but. Sure, the trike has less than half the power of the personal watercraft, but when it comes to traction, it takes less to put that power down onto tarmac than it does to jet it into the water. On the other hand, Spinelli’s got less traffic to deal with than Collins does. Too close to call, then, so you’ll just have to watch the video from the Sea-Doo’s perspective above and from the Can-Am’s below.

Check out the full article for more on the race and the vehicles involved.
