That would be the whole point of the gyroscopic effect. Same thing that keeps your bike perfectly vertical, while cruising down the highway. The movies shows 2 internal disc, spinning. As long as they spin, it'll stay vertical. They shut off, it falls !

I want to know what keeps them constantly going ? I want one !

You'd probably try and take it down a dirt road

That first one looks fun, I can't say i'd feel very safe driving one in Houston but I also can't say that its a deal breaker. I would love to see it moving through some curves.

Oh it can't go around curves. The gyros keep it from turning too.

Looks pretty cool. I would be scared to drive it in Houston too. Probably would cause wrecks just from people rubber necking to get a look.

The demographic here is the spyder and t rex crowd. the motorcyclist wannabes. Whenever i am on 2 wheels i prefer to be out in the open. this oven bike wouldnt be much fun in houston.

i think the cargo scooter is pretty cool though. it is the panel van of motorcycling

That is if it is a stand alone gyro, but it won't be.

Gyros will be tied into direct steering input, while counteracting signals it receives, outside of of that direct input.
