The first request from Walter Do to Agrusta was to imagine a fast, versatile and fun craft, like a water scooter, but at the same time as “dry” and safe as a boat. In addition, Hurricane needed to be able to navigate rough seas smoothly and safely. A compact craft, that could transport up to three, that could easily exceed 40 kn and manoeuvre like a jet ski. In fact the proportions, the three seats one in front of the other.
Hurricane is powered by the innovative and powerful Weber 850 MPE, in a marine version of 120 or 155 hp. This very modern unit, presented for the first time at the 2013 METS, is extremely compact and light and has low fuel consumption and low pollution exhaust. Power is delivered smoothly, but also brutally, thanks to the variable geometry turbine that allows the small two cylinder engine of just 850 cc to unleash 155 hp at 7300 rpm. Top revs and capacity comparable, and it’s no accident, to those of a road motorbike.
