UNOMOTO: A NEW TYPE OF STREET MACHINE

 

 

One wheeled driving machines seems to be the newest trends nowadays. Last March, UnoMoto was introduced. It was actually described as one of the best two-wheeled unicycle. It takes a Yamaha R! frame and includes side-by-side wheels and Segway-like gyroscopic technology and wraps it in a custom made body to create a very different kind of electric commuter vehicle. Although the design is not as slick in the design stakes, this new vehicle prototype is reminiscent of the new Bombardier EMBRIO Concept which I have also featured today. However, this one has simpler controls, except for the on and off switch, the entire control is achieved by simply leaning; forward to accelerate, back to brake, and sideways to make a turn with the tilting suspension allowing the inside wheel to dip. When you switch it off, it rests back on its footpegs. Plus, it has a current low speed of 25mph. It’s design engineer Ben Gulak since he have created another excellent driving machine that will rock the industry. This vehicle possesses great characteristics such as green, unconventional and compact.
