The kid has a great invention to start, but wondering if the transorming, was his idea, or a corparate think tank.


Last I saw of the kid, he was on a British show called "the dragons", and they awarded him money, for (toyota, or nissan I thought) to build it, as long as the dragons kept some of the royalties (and he agreed,) but not without a good business deal talk on his part.

Now I am interested in "who" or "what" BPG motors is....his company? Someone buy him out? or did "the dragons" deal fall through, and another company stepped up for mfg purposes????


The biggest question...





If TMAX rode an UNO would he be any more acceptable to his MOTOHOUSTON peers?



Legit question

Its "cool factor" is way better than the segway (his intial idea, something people could use, but not look like a geek) and use it for sidewalks, block to block commuting.

Functionality design looks like they are changing though (unless this is a "streetable" version, and not meant for sidewalks.

I like the side by side design best.

I don't want an electric "almost" motorcycle, just something fun, simple, innovative to walking. I like the motorcyle transform version, but how much in price will that thing jump?

Just thought about something, if the torque is pretty good on it, would be "WIN" to go up and down stairs with it
