thrustcycle self balancing gyrocycle

Motorcycles are about to take a big leap into the future. Thanks to a new prototype from Thrustcycle, self-stabilizing motorcycles could be cruising the streets in 2017.

The GyroCycle keeps upright by using internal flywheels to create a gyroscopic effect. While this is generally felt by every rider at higher speeds, the stabilization here will occur even while standing still. An added benefit from the same technology is that the bike will be less likely to lose traction and slide under itself during a turn. This grants the rider greater control and increased safety.
