One Wheel Motorcycle
Check out this one wheel motorcycle called appropriately the “UNO”. 18 year old Toronto inventor Ben Gulak has spent two years and $45,000 to develop this self balancing electric motorcycle.
Clean and green this one wheeled motorcyle is powered by two electric motors.
Ben designed his unqiue motorcycle with a pair of wheels 1″ apart side iftted into a Yamaha R1 Frame side to give the ride more stability.
Riding this one wheeled motorbike is very similar to riding a Segway in that it features a pair of gyroscopes to always keep the rifer upright to accelerate the rider leans forward, to go backwards you just lean back and again you lean into a turn. The degree to which you lean increases or decreases your speed
The Uno’s is powered by two wheelchair motors and has a theoreticaltop speed of 40 mph.
