Sure, the RYNO looks like the hideous progeny of a motorcycle and a unicycle (nobody likes to talk about that night behind the circus tents), but it could be your new means of urban transportation. It runs off a lithium-ion battery that recharges in 90 minutes, has a smaller footprint than a Vespa, and is easily maneuvered even in a group of pedestrians. With a top speed of 25 miles per hour and a top incline capacity of 30 degrees, its range and capabilities are pretty similar to a bike. But come on, some days you're just tired.
