Silveira Customs comes up with high performance personal watercraft, dubbed the Samba XRS. The body made from the carbon fiber, powered by a four stroke 110hp turbo engine, weighs in 341lbs. Sleek design, they designed to "feel more like an extension of your body", beauty one!

Physics dictated the advantages of reducing watercraft weight and positioning the handlebars as the center of gravity, so you can exert extreme body English. You can go from big high speed drifts , to cutting very tightly, all with just a small change in attitude of the craft, yet it’s all distinctive."
