Who says motorcycles need 2 wheels? The Ryno gets it done with one.

The Ryno “microcycle” is a bit of futuristic transportation that looks like it escaped from an underground Honda skunkworks. You hop aboard a seat atop a single, motorcycle-sized wheel and pilot around the street merely by leaning.

In case you’ve missed the Ryno Motors’ viral YouTube video, which has accrued more than 10 million views from salivating geeks, the Ryno “microcycle” is a bit of futuristic transportation that looks like it escaped from an underground Honda skunkworks. You hop aboard a seat atop a single, motorcycle-sized wheel and pilot around the street merely by leaning. Spiky anime-style hair and steampunk goggles are not required, but a helmet is highly recommended.

Unlike so many other viral products of industrial design students, ambitious Photoshoppers and misguided Kickstarter entrepreneurs, the Ryno is quite real. After six years of development, the company is finally ready to release its one-wheeled wonder to the world.
