    Gyroscopic, electric, motorcycle crossover

    Looks like a BMW vehicle, but being made in California. See this BBC report

    Thumbs up

    With the gyro system for balance it would be fun to drive this on ice. For handicapped persons this could be a boon. I would like to drive one but can forsee problems with trying to lean into corners at speed unless the vehicle is programed to do so. Ride Safe
