My guess is that, with the gyros, forget counter steering, leaning and all that you know about riding a motorcycle. You will steer it like a car.
They talked of 22 or 26 thousand pounds (dollars?) for early production models, but the price would come down if it was to be mass produced.
Not the kind of thing that would attract motorcyclists, I would guess, being more a car on two wheels..... However, I reckoned that of the Gold Wing and the Electra Glide, yet they have a niche in the market.
The range is impressive. The small form factor of a motorcycle makes carrying enough battery storage for a decent range a difficult ask, using current technology. This machine is big enough to carry capacity to cover a good few miles.

Looks a little like they used the same technology that was used on the Segway, only longitudinally. Could be an interesting city vehicle, but I'm not sure why you wouldn't just add a third or fourth wheel and save the expense of the gyros.
BTW, mmmmmm gyros...maybe I'll have one for lunch!!
A recent news story here in the US said $20,000 now and $16,000 in quantity. The article i read focused on the safety of the vehicle over a motorcycle. I can understand that if you lay it down, but in a collision with any decent-sized car you'll still be road pizza.
Still, with a 200+mile range, it would be worth looking at, at least for me - but you can buy a nice small car for what they're asking for it....
interesting idea. but i would never own one lol. takes all the fun out of ridding a motorcycle. instead of using your body weight and skill to navigate turns, you are stuck in pretty much a two wheeled cage.
