In-wheel motorcycle is part strange, part familiar

Posted on by 2

We recently came across the Monobike vehicle that Neil Morris, a student of industrial design at the Savannah College of Art and Design, has conceptualized and while we have to admit that the concept is rather plausible, we can’t really say we haven’t seen anything like it in a while. The creator describes the in-wheel motorcycle as being a “Rhinoceros model. Based on a long running tradition of odd one-wheeled vehicles as far back as the early 1900’s.”

Trying to find the practical side here, we reckon this can turn into a fun mean of urban transportation right after learning how to ride it. The sad part is that you can’t take a friend along for the ride, but at least you’ll be the only one that looks cool.

Well that is a pretty interesting design but I don’t think that it will ever go into production as people will definitely have a lot of question for it like how comfortable would the ride be? It doesn’t seem to have any shock absorbers, second, if I pull the brakes, will the wheel stop turning or will I turn with the wheel?
