Looking to make your morning commutes to the office just a wee bit more interesting? Forget about buying a bicycle or electric kick scooter—if you’re really serious about spicing up your time on the road, why not go for something a little more unique? Say, an electric unicycle?
If you like that idea, you’re absolutely going to love this thing. It’s an electric unicycle capable of withstanding Metro Manila’s pockmarked road system, and then some. This is the InMotion V11, and it’s likely your best bet if you’re in the mood to replace rush hour drives with something more challenging. Watch:
The InMotion V11 comes equipped with a 2,200W electric motor powered by a 1,500Wh battery pack with up to 120km of range. It weighs 27kg, has a maximum payload of up to 120kg, comes with front and rear lights, boasts a top speed of 50kph, and has a charging time of five hours. What really sets this thing apart, though, is its built-in air suspension with up to 3.3 inches of vertical travel that allows it to tackle less-than-stellar terrain.
Just think of all the attention you’ll get riding this thing to the office. Besides that, we suppose this will be a very convenient personal mobility device to bring around as it’s significantly more compact than a folding e-bike or an electric kick scooter.
Like it? The InMotion V11 carries a $1,999 (P97,000) price tag, though it’s currently on sale on the company’s website for $500 (around P24,000). You could buy a pretty nice scooter with that kind of money.
Frankly, P100,000 is a hell of a lot for a ride most people would consider a novelty. If you’re really into the idea of unicycling to work and have the money to blow, though? We say go for it. What do you say?
