Taurus Concept Starts With The Segway And Adds Cool

Let’s be frank here, Erik Lanuza’s Taurus concept, an electric-powered self-balancing motorcycle with a slightly different wheel configuration, is basically a modified Segway. But since you straddle the Taurus like you would a racing bike, instead of awkwardly standing and leaning, he’s managed to make riding the Taurus look about 1,000 times cooler than riding a Segway. And even though it’s just a concept design, I can’t imagine it would be that difficult to modify the Segway to operate like this. So instead of an awkward personal transporter, they’d have the slick Vespa for the 21st century on their hands.

  1. You can buy an attached seat for a Segway (I’ve seen a guy ride with one around town) which gets you basically the same thing, only less stylish.

  2. I don't know, I never really thought the standing-position of the Segway was all that awkward. This thing is kind of monstrous, and I think it would be much more cumbersome to get around in.
