the motorized monocycle only costs $13,000. Probably why no one has been seen riding one

The monocycles are made in the Netherlands, each one is capable of reaching a top speed of 25mph and is powered by a rather humble 31cc, 4-stroke 1 1/2-hp engine. It uses a centrifugal clutch on its inner wheel and has a rubber tire around the outer wheel, steering is accomplished by leaning the wheel left or right and the brake is essentially a clamp on the inner steel wheel.
