There’s a lot more to this motorcycle than meets the eye. In fact, the UNO III Streetbike is a Segway in disguise. Incredible as it sounds, the UNO III can transform from a motorcycle (actually a three-wheeled sports bike, but the back two wheels are very close together) to a two-wheel dicycle that resembles a Segway personal transporter. It is every geek’s dream—your very own working transformer. Plus it is Earth Day today, so it is important to note that this street bike is powered by a zero emission electric motor.
Like the Segway, the UNO III has internal gyros to maintain stability while in the two wheel mode (Uno Mode). In this mode the U3 is able to maneuver very easily making tight turns without taking up much space. It is possible to drive this urban vehicle around an office, taking it down a hallway or up an elevator. This is the mode to be in for small spaces or when there are crowds around.
As your speed increases, the third wheel on the U3 automatically folds out and the rear wheels slide back. It actually transforms into a streetbike, right while you are driving it, all without losing stability or control. The motorcycle mode is ideal when you are driving on the street and want to achieve higher speeds. In the motorcycle mode it is able to go faster—up to 30 miles per hour.
