Thrustcycle produce a self-balancing motorcycle ‘Gyrocycle’
Thrustcycle Enterprises have produced the new Gyrocycle which is already available in prototype form.
Now, it’s really not the most attractive bike in the world as you can see from the video below. However, it’s unlikely that this will be the final look for the model.
Thrustcycle have utilised internal flywheels which create a gyroscopic effect allowing the motorcycle to stay upright, even when at as stop (as long as the power is on). The bike even has the ability to pull itself back up after turning corners and the rider does not need to put their feet on the ground when stopped to keep the bike upstanding.
Moreover, Clyde Igarashi, co-founder of the motorcycle has stated that the final version of the bike will features an oil air cooled lubricated motor which will be provided by Zed, as well as utilising mechanisms from their 8,500-watt lithium battery. In addition, the Gyrocycle is said to be able to reach top speeds of 75 mph and has a range of about 80 miles.
expect to be able to have the motorcycle on the market at some point
during 2017, but have not provided an exact date for interested buyers.
Also, pricing is still being finalized and we are unsure whether or not
the bike will be available for purchase in the UK.
