  • Ryno - One Wheeled Motorcycle

    I was reading though The Verge this morning and spotted this article (and video) on a new one wheeled motorbike made by Ryno.

    Have a read and see what you think. Seems like an interesting concept.

    It can go for 10 miles at 10 MPH,

    there is no valid use for this product.
    National pride should not be a crime!.

        Apart from the 'prestige' or being able to do it, what's the point?

            My bikes don't seem to have any problem converting to one wheel mode and maintaining better speeds...

            10 miles might be an effort though...

            Still seems pretty pointless.
            Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

            when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

                God, look at the state of this page, it's like they had no idea where to place everything and just threw up on their keyboard.

                And a 6 hour charging time for a 10 mp/h speed, 10 mile range? I could walk there and back quicker, be healthier and save myself 6 grand.
                Again, what a fucking ridiculous device.

                    note in their vids:
                    there is no one else within cooee of them
                    all vision is pretty much straight line motion
                    or comes to complete stop before turning
                    Note: this may not be the universe where the above is relevant.

                      That actually looks a lot like the way Honda Australia display their vehicles on their site. I don't particularly like it, but they've obviously set it up based on how other vehicle manufacturers are doing things.

                      Are they seriously $6,000? For that kind of money you could buy a mobility scooter that will have a higher theoretical top speed while looking cooler* doing so.

                      *subjective.

                        I wonder how fast would this thing go with fully loaded

                        Let me brake it down for you

                        so that's 160lbs dry weight + 260lbs carrying = 420lbs
                        So 2.2LBS per kg = 190kg excluding the rider
                        Average persons weight is what 80kg

                        So, once fully loaded, this poor excuse for motorcycle needs to pull is 270kg...

                        What's the speed than? still 10mph? I hardly think so. More like 6 or 7 mph
