That thing doesn't look like it has a suspension. Don't imagine it would be too comfortable. Still pretty cool though

I'd feel cool and gay at the same time. Probably how someone who's badass at World of Warcraft would feel.

I could see a market in a place like Japan, where people often live in tiny apts and parking is at a premium (plus they like oddball stuff). Here in the good ol' US of A you might get a beatdown for riding one, lol.

BTW it looks like it MIGHT have front suspension but rear looks hardtail.

You can see the front forks and the rear shock in the pictures on the website. The transition does not look near as smooth in the video on the website as in that one above.

I could see myself riding this as a local commuter just because it looks like I could easily park it in my dorm room.

This is cool, but I still think I'd rather have one of those electric motards. Those things look like FUN!
