    since the bike is so light and the tires have so much air in them, you can wash it off by floating it in a river and giving it a bit of throttle.

    That is one of its best features.

    The Taurus has been around for a while, never successfully exported in appreiable numbers. The linked video was for the early model that has inner tubes for tires and thus about half the weight of the featured Taurus2 with the larger 200cc power plant. Still not exported to us capitalist imperialist running dogs. Too bad. Vehicle is evolving to be more like a Rokon.
