Maybe Yikebike, URB-E and similar hard-to-categorize PEV's and the like...

Hmm... Could we? No... Make an electric wheelchair that goes 50 mph. It sounds crazy. But if I'm crazy enough to think of it, someone else is crazy enough to build it.

Electric motorcycles? Although they're like scooters, but I mean "real" motorcycles, ie. need an actual motorcycle license and capable of reaching >100km/h etc.

Hovershoes are getting a lot of attention on this forum as some of our members (it would seem) have purchased either Ninebot or Inmotion skates.
Edit: These are self-balancing, so I guess these are either euc's or two-wheeled (depending on how you want to look at it).

As for 'real' motorcycles, it seems we're still 'getting-our-feet-wet' with 'kickboard' and 'Vespa' style scooters before ramping up to full fledged 'e-hogs'. However, a lot of us have already 'taken-the-plunge' with e-bikes. (I've occasionally wanted to talk about my e-bike experiences on this forum and I think maybe others have too.) ?

Welcome @savannahsmiles  Maybe you could introduce yourself and tell us what you ride, and what type of riding you do.  I'm not sure where one should do that.  Is there a Newbie introduction thread, anyone?

Technically, this doesn't belong here...

Okay, so here's a weird one. What if the typical e-scooter was self-balancing?

Confused? Well, don't be. It's a feature we now take for granted. I'm talking about (self-balanced) trolleying...

Gimmicky, to say the least. Although, it's cool how it can travel short distances without falling to one side.

What matters isn't the speed of your mobility scooter, it's the size of your balls!!!   :shock2:

Airwheel that can't fly? Not only the battery exceeds 160Wh limit, but the weight exceeds carry-on limit, too!

Excellent point! I hadn't stopped to think about the weight and battery size... :roflmao:

But still, all of that is irrelevant compared to the advantage of being able to ride around the airport at 10 km/h looking like a complete dork   :roflmao:

How about a self-balancing electric motorcycle?

"adds self-balancing and autonomous capabilities. The eScooter T can be remote controlled via app" https://www.engadget.com/2019/12/17/ninebot-escooter-emoped/

(Although, I'm not really sure what the practical uses for this feature are, it does seem to self-balance on it's own for short distances...)

 

Speaking of Segway-Ninebot, they brought a lot to CES this year, including a Wall-E style pod/wheelchair for the truly lazy among us...
