The Embrio concept from Bombadier Recreational Products (better known
for their more conventional forms of transport like jetskis) uses
gyroscopic technology to balance itself and the rider on one central
wheel. The smaller front wheel acts to stabilize the Embrio when stopped
or traveling below 12mph.
The Bombadier Embrio was designed as an insight into the future of
transport circa 2025. Bombadier drew on its experience with recreational
vehicles when it came to design of the Embrio and it is intended for
people who enjoy transport, this is evident in the styling and the
necessity to lean into turns similar in a similar manner to a motorcyle
The Bombadier Embrio is powered by a hydrogen
fuel cell - emitting only water as a by-product - driving an electric
motor powering the main wheel.
Control of the Embrio is facilitated by a trigger control on the left
handlebar for acceleration, and a trigger on the right for braking.
