One-wheeled transportation is nothing new — we’ve seen both Honda and some Canadian entrepreneur try one out. Heck, we’ve even seen an early concept of the RYNO Unicycle. But now as RYNO approaches actual production, a new version of their vehicle — that they’re now calling the Microcycle — has been unveiled. Controlled like a Segway in that you lean forward to move forward and lean back to slow down, the self-balancing Microcycle aims to offer urban citizens a greener and more convenient transportation option. Designed and built in Portland, Oregon, the RYNO Microcycle has a top speed of 10 mph, and a range of 10 miles on single charge, and can go places even the smallest motorcycle can’t — like sidewalks, bike lanes, walking promenades and more. Standard it comes with RYNO’s SLA batteries, but upgrades to a lithium ion battery pack are also available. If you’re interested, you can pre-order the motorized unicycle for $5,300.
