dont you mean two wheel electric uni-cycle?. motorcycle is powered with a gas engine. And two wheel motorcycle just doesn't make sense cause motorcycles are already on two wheels. kinda stating the obvious. but on another note, it does look quite unique.

It was a play on words. It does have 2 wheels and it does have a motor, albeit an electric one. The point was exactly to make you think "what's so special about that?" and then come in and check it out.

to me, the most important part of a motorcyle is the braking system. In this case, you can only slow down as quickly as you can lean backwards. I also do not understand the advantages this has over a traditional motorcycle.
