Urban commuters, get ready, because your new transportation device awaits you! This unique ride takes the form of a single-wheeled, self-balancing electric scooter, and goes by the name of RYNO, or “Ride Your New Opportunity”.

The RYNO can get up to 20 MPH on its single 25″ tire and can turn on a dime (OK, so it’s a big dime, but the turning radius is under 3 feet). The battery takes about an hour and a half for a full charge, which will let riders travel for approximately 20 miles, and the 125 pound bike is small enough to go onto buses, trains, and inside buildings. The RYNO can also handle riders up to 280 pounds, so it’s not just for small or skinny people.

Here’s the scoop:

“RYNO is poised to create real fundamental change. Since you can take it on the train in the suburbs, get off downtown and quietly ride it all around, city planners will finally have a product that will allow urban centers to clear out automobile free zones and get people out of their cars and back to meeting face to face. Slide the battery out and take it upstairs to charge or simply ride the RYNO through a lobby and up the elevator to your own apartment.” – RYNO

The RYNO is expected to go into production in 2013, with an estimated price tag of about $4500. For more info, see the RYNO Motors website, or catch up to them on Twitter or Facebook.
