Ryno is a single wheeled vehicle closely resembling a motorcycle. The is not actually a bike since the letters “b-i” in the word “bike” means “two”; as in 2 wheels. Surely they considered calling it something with “Uni” in it, like “unicycle, but I don’t think anyone would want it, LOL… Branding is so important. I’m glad they went with “Ryno” instead.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFapcPzQmEY&w=610&h=375]
Their direct competitor is obviously the highly touted Segway which has gained large acceptance across the globe with it’s parallel 2 wheel platform. To the Ryno’s “new-kid-on-the-block” credit, it is 8 mph faster than the Segway at 20mph (and 9mph faster than the average human’s top speed of 11mph). The Segway slightly 1-ups the Ryno in travel distance, traveling 12-24 miles vs. the Ryno’s 20 miles.
Personally, I wouldn’t mind getting one of these beauties, it’s fast and it looks awesome!
