    Sucks. Doesn`t have a propper engine.
    I like to hear rev rev. Not zoom zoom.
    But it`s easy to park.

    Who would ride a motorized unicycle? Also they need to smooth out the transition.

    This guy built the Uno did not build it with the North American market in mind, but more with the Japanese market and places where space is a notable concern.

    That`s just something to keep in mind when thinking about it.

    Thetas: It`s useful if you live in an apartment and don`t have a garage to store it in. It`s electric so they`ll be no worries of CO emissions indoors.

    Unless it doesn`t require a driver and can shoot things and think for itself? Not the `first transformer.` As if.

    /And I`d never have it, too much crap to break.
    //still kinda cool though.

    It is not a unicycle. I don`t quite get the point of the TWO wheels coming together side by side. I guess it`s easier to maneuver in small areas but that`s about it. UNI means one, and a unicycle is a lot harder to ride than this. It`s interesting looking but not really practical or useful and far from being a transformer.

    Segway to motorcycle.
    I thought it was lam because I was expecting to be more impressed in the transformation, but I misjudged it.

    @Ando

    @bataleon, i dunno how a one wheeled version would be of any use, other than i guess for parking in small spaces

    that`s pretty cool, and doing an `lol` to all those that go `why would one need this?`

    Well, when park fees at some private garages are determined by the space you pack in, determines how much you pat out. Small "foot print", smaller the fee. Also in a people congested space, were maneuverability would as asset where over speed and size, especially where people and vehicles and sharing the same transit space.

    In uni mode one would be able to zip around/ thru a crowd, where everything else, vehicles wise would be reduced to a crawl or stand still.

    @BrimstoneOne..... it looks like it takes up about the same space when in 1 wheel or 2 wheel.... the frame of the bike takes up the most space... not the wheels...

    @SuperBeast the transforming is for speed, when you get faster in unicycle mode it gets "very scary to drive"(words of the inventor) of so they made it a motorcycle for higher speed
