the front end probably doesnt need to come up, depending on where the pivot is.

The rear moves forward also. I don't think the front needs to lift first.

why not scoop up a used beginner bike of any variety and instantly outperform this ugly mutant in every way. (notice the absence of a question mark)

like this is exciting. It's great that there are motorcycle designers thinking really outside the box. This obviously has no realistic application now, but hopefully ideas like this will trickle down into usable and helpful additions to the motorcycles of the future.

Plus, its a transformer!

In the tucked position, it will fit in an elevator so you could take it to the 45th floor with you if you wanted to. Parking issues resolved!
