The RYNO Motors Microcycle is essentially a motorized unicycle self-described as “Half the bike. Twice the fun.” The one-wheeled vehicle takes up less room than a regular bicycle, and makes it a convenient form of transportation. It includes a five-horsepower electric motor, which is very quiet and can reach speeds of up to 20 mph and a range of up to 20 miles on a single charge.

The concept of RYNO was inspired by the inventor’s 13-year-old daughter, who saw a one-wheeled motorcycle in a video game and asked him if he could build something like that. Chris Hoffmann, founder of RYNO Motors, took up the challenge and after five years of development, the RYNO is looking to secure an investment to launch production and global sales.
