one-wheeled vehicle envisions the future of transportation

honda baiku is a futuristic vehicle concept that gives us a taste of transportation’s next step. envisioned by valencia-based designer nacho alfonso, the one-wheeled motorcycle explores the new electric mobility that has become popular in the last years, where electric vehicles — scooters or skates, occupy the streets of many cities around the world. the honda baiku concept adds a high-end segment to this market targeting younger generations.

honda baiku by nacho alfonso takes shape as a self-balancing electric scooter standing on a single wheel. the vehicle utilizes gyroscope and accelerometers sensors enabling it to balance itself. the motorcycle features a movable flat seat that can be retracted into the frame sparing space while not in use.

furthermore, baiku’s rectangular-shaped front includes LED array lights providing a clear view on nightly trips. meanwhile, a long display spans from the top section to the lower chassis. the top part reveals all the important information such as speed, temperature, navigation, while the sloped section function as a remote control for the user’s connected smartphone.
