I find this concept fascinating. What does everyone think?

It looks pretty cool but I wonder what it costs. I really think they could make these scoots of ours get better gas mileage. It seems the Prius can get better mileage then the big scooters which seems odd. But I like the first one, the cycle that leans, it seems like it would be a lot of fun. Thanks for posting it. It's kind of cool.

It'll be interesting to see how they do in the market place. If crowded areas need the space, the affected municipalities will offer incentives or disincentives, such as London has done in the recent past.

Looks to me like it has 4 motorcycle tires. At 50 bucks a pop and only 8-10k miles on a set, no thank you. My bike costs me enough in tires already.
So I guess in that aspect, yes, I am narrow minded! :D

Looking at the companies suggestion that the Naro could be used in the emergency vehicle market, I can see the use in a crowded city as a solo response "car". I am however wondering about the response times, compared with a Honda Pan or a Cycle Response unit.
