Lit Motors C1 two-wheeled encased motorcycle prototype rolls, rocks!

This is another way of creating a MonoTracer E type vehicle without the automated training wheels. This system seems better as it can always be engaged to add stability whereas the MonoTracer's support wheels are only extended at low speeds. It will be interesting to see how much power it takes to keep the gyros spinning and whether that impacts vehicle range. Vehicles like this which can probably offer 300mpge could allow people to dramatically reduce the amount of energy they use for commuting. You can do this today by riding a bicycle, I have logged 72 miles this week. E-Bikes are also a great alternative. But most consumers are too weak to make the effort or mus their hair. My personal favorite lightweight city electric is the audi e-tron city prototype with offset tandem seating which offers a little extra room in case you need to shlep a kid, dog or groceries.
