The Uno electric bike is a unique beast: an electric scooter that looks like a mini-motorcycle and folds up into a Segway-like scooter balanced on two wheels, providing easy motorcycle shipping and storage.
The front wheel just retracts for the scooter’s “self-balancing mode”, which allows it to maneuver better in tight spaces. Will it be mistaken for an Autobot by kids when they see this zipping down the street? It’s best we wait until the Uno rolls out next year.
There are plenty of electric scooters on the market, but how many of them can fold up into an electric unicycle? The Uno electric scooter can. It also looks like something out of a Michael Bay Transformers movie.
The Uno has a top speed of around 35 miles per hour and a range of 30 miles. The “unicycle” mode is called self-balancing mode, and it allows the Uno to retract its front wheel and balance on the two real wheels, using a gyroscopic control system that gives the bike much more maneuverability.
The creators bpg-motors.com are planning to sell the Uno for between $4,000-$7,000 and it’s expected to be available in limited quantities starting next year.
