15 PERSONAL TRANSPORTS THAT MAKE MOBILITY FUN


– [Glen] Life is all about moving around, and how we can get from point A to point B in the quickest and even the most fun way. People are always inventing
new ways to do this, and we like to check them
out any chance we get. This is Glen, and today
we are bringing you 15 transport vehicles that make
mobility accessible and fun. – [Narrator] Number 15. – [Glen] This new electric cargo scooter, the RAPIDE 3 by Gaius Auto, was unveiled at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, and fuses together the
classic three-wheel design, with the latest in battery technology. Combining the cargo
capacity of a light truck, and the agility of a scooter, the RAPIDE 3 Cargo Scooter has multiple rear cargo options from refrigerated cargo
holds to open beds. The RAPIDE 3 is equipped with a new type of lithium ion battery
called lithium titanate, allowing it to charge up
to 80% in just 15 minutes. It can haul up to 440 pounds of cargo at a top speed of 59 miles per hour, with a range with up to 65 miles from its 5.2 kilowatt hour battery. – [Narrator] Number 14. – [Glen] Having room for
two people plus cargo, the Screecher is a
bioelectric hybrid pedal cycle with solar charging, five
levels of pedal assist, regenerative breaking, and
4 wheel drive positraction with a front and rear differential. Two 350 watt electric motors will go from zero to 15 miles
per hour in five seconds. And with the pedal assist, you can probably get there quicker. This comes with a 12.8 amp power
48 volt lithium ion battery than can be charged
with either solar panels or by plugging it in, and
has a range of 20 miles. Available for pre-order, this has a cost of $2500 and the first
shipments are expected in January of 2019. – [Narrator] Number 13. – [Glen] Designed by
Japan based company Daga, the Stroke is a new
electric cargo tricycle that was recently shown off
at the Tokyo Wonder Festival after 18 months of development. Unlike most electric cargo bicycles, the Stroke houses a large enclosed trunk in the middle of the bike,
surrounded by the frame. The trunk is removable, allowing the rider to use it on the go, like
a large rolling suitcase. With two wheels in the
front instead of the rear, the design means that
it becomes more stable when loaded up. And with the tilting mechanism
built into the frame, the trike leans into turns
like a two-wheeled bicycle. – [Narrator] Number 12. – [Glen] Drymer is an
innovative transportation concept of new transportation designed, produced, and mounted in the Netherlands. These gliders come standard
with a 250 watt motor and have a tilting mechanism on the front two wheels for turning. The Drymer Business has several options like leather seating, an iPad mount, navigation, a USB charger
for mobile devices, and a luggage compartment
which is lockable. This also has an aerodynamic hood that comes in either metallic gray or a black design. The Drymer Basic is the
start model from Drymer. It’s possible to adjust all
types of options on this model, while the Drymer Leisure
comes with exclusive options including several color
choices, leather seating, a portable device charger, and diverse types of navigation lights. – [Narrator] Number 11. – [Glen] The Chainless,
created by Sean Chan, features a unique riding position where the cyclist doesn’t sit
in the middle of the bike. It also has a series of tungsten gears designed to replace the typical chain. This bike has a super light frame crafted out of aircraft
grade aluminum alloy, weighs 25 pounds, and
comes in a range of colors. There is also an S1F
model that is foldable and takes up half the space. Unfortunately, they didn’t
make their Kickstarter goals and are moving on to further development. The unreleased versions
are now up for sale. They have five for sale
priced between $800 and $1000. – [Narrator] Number 10. – [Glen] The Velofeet was designed by Scottish inventor Manual Alvarez-Icaza. He uses the body’s natural
movements to propel it. The top speed is about a jogging pace. You lean to change direction and when you lean back on
the seat, the brakes come on. This is ideal for use in cities and towns being more efficient than
a unicycle or a bicycle and easier to use. Climbing hills may be a problem, but it is light to carry uphill and will go downhill quite quickly. Eventually, Manual wants
to have a sports version for playing games like
soccer or basketball. – [Narrator] Number Nine. – [Glen] Mahindra, one of the largest automotive companies in India, is building a production factory for their all electric scooter, the
GenZe 2.0 in Detroit, Michigan. The GenZe 2.0 is an urban
and suburban scooter that comes with a 1.6 kilowatt hour removable lithium ion battery pack. And with a maximum speed
of 30 miles per hour, this gets a maximum range of
30 miles on a single charge. The battery is rated for
900 complete cycle charges. Charging takes between four
to four and a half hours for a full charge from a
standard 110 volt outlet. You can choose between three
different speed settings using the touch screen display including sport for quicker acceleration, easy for a better range, and economy for a more extended range. – [Narrator] Number Eight. – [Glen] Hover-1 produces the Arrow, a three-wheeled single seat fully enclosed electric vehicle that
has a 1500 watt motor. This has a top speed of 30 miles per hour and the 42 amp hour battery gives this a range of 43.5 miles. It’s steered via scooter-like handle bars and features heating and air conditioning, full lighting and sound systems, a rear backup camera, a reverse button, an anti-theft alarm, and a small amount of cargo space behind the seat. The company is also offering
an electric motor bike that has a maximum load of 265 pounds, a top speed of 34 miles per hour, and a range of 35 miles. – [Narrator] Number Seven. – [Glen] The Gran Tour Four
Person Off-Road Bicycle by Berg is designed to hold two
adults and two children. This has a lithium ion battery that will last two to three hours and gets a range of 12 miles. Maximum weight on this is 770 pounds and this comes with a
550 watt electric motor to aid in pedaling. The Gran Tour Family Bike
is a touring pedal cycle allowing adults in the rear to steer and accommodating up to four riders. This has a maximum load of 550 pounds and gets a top speed of 10 miles per hour. Two forward seats allow passengers a full view of the surroundings while secured with lap belts, while horizontal bars accommodate
shorter legs for comfort. – [Narrator] Number Six. – [Glen] The Mylo by Pim Bicycles is not a pedal-assist
reverse electric bike. This one runs on the 36 volt battery that is located behind the seat only. This folding E-scooter
will quickly fold up to a 15 by 20 by 41 inch package that weighs around 46 pounds. The battery will get
you a range of 15 miles with an optional second
battery that can be added to get you twice that. The Mylo has a 250 watt
motor and three drive modes with the top drive mode
giving you a maximum speed of 18 miles per hour. The Mylo is expected to
sell for around $1500. – [Narrator] Number Five. – [Glen] Onyx is reintroducing
a line of electric bikes taking inspiration from popular
mopeds of the 70s and 80s. These have the highest
torque direct-drive motors in their class with a feeling
of a two-stroke engine through the whole throttle range. The RCR Cafe Blaster has
72 volts of instant torque with a range of 45 to 75 miles and a top speed of 60 miles per hour. The CTY Free Spirit has
48 volts of instant torque with a range of 25 to 40 miles and a top speed of 30 plus miles per hour. – [Narrator] Number Four. – [Glen] The Fat Trike is produced by Azub from the Czech Republic. It’s made to operate off road. It comes with 26 inch
fat wheels all around and has a weight capacity of 275 pounds. The rear stays are built on a T-Tris frame and widened to accommodate the fat tires and shortened to keep the
frame as compact as possible. This trike can adjust to fit anyone, has a fold to flat folding system, easily removable wheels, and
a seat that can be removed. You can break this down
to many small parts that will fit comfortably
in a vehicle for transport. The cost of these is about $5000 and with the most expensive options, the price goes to just over $6000. – [Narrator] Number Three. – [Glen] Stanford University
Aerospace Engineering grad Dak Steiert created the Comanche, a gas or electric recumbent trike that is made for off-road or the street and it can fit in the back of an SUV. The gas off road model features a 6.5 horsepower engine with a top speed of 45 miles an hour. With optional upgrades
up to a 400cc engine tops out a 70 miles per hour. The electric off road version
has a five kilowatt motor powered by a 24 amp hour battery pack tops out a 45 miles per hour and has a range of 70 miles. – [Narrator] Number Two. – [Glen] Master Designer Lucio Marabese, the man behind the Piaggio
MP3 and the Yamaha Tesseract, designed the Qooder for
Swiss Company Quadro. This is the first and
only vehicle in the world with four tilting wheels combining the thrill of a motor bike with the stability of a car. It offers safe and instinctive driving thanks to the double
hydro pneumatic system, or hydraulic tilting system, where the four wheels tilt simultaneously always maintaining its grip on the road. This has a centrally placed 400cc engine with integrated differential
for double rear traction and a low center of gravity with an all-wheel braking system. Later in 2019, Quadro is also coming out with an electric version of this bike. – [Narrator] Number One. – [Glen] The Sway Lithium
is an electric scooter from Sway Motor Sports in California in partnership with German
E-scooter manufacturer Govecs. It was introduced as a cutting edge three-wheeled tilting scooter in 2012 and appeared on the TV
show Shark Tank in 2015. The scooter has a powerful six kilowatt in-wheel electric motor that gets a top speed of 55 miles per hour without a restriction. And this has a 4.2
kilowatt lithium battery and has a driving range of 40 miles. The Sway is free standing
and is controlled by using your legs to tilt the scooter through a patented linkage design. Sway comes standard with
an on-board 110 volt plug for wall charging and comes at a cost of just about $10,000. – Hey guys, this is Cassie. I hope you guys enjoyed this video. Tell us in the comments below what you found to be the

  1. кароче в мире ничёбольше не смогли придумать лутчше чем велосипед мотоцикл и джип уаз

  2. Great thinking by the designers, great innovations. All vehicles are superb done

    Thank you for sharing information Minds Eye Design

  3. I’m really disappointed that here in the United States we don’t think about an ancient and very well respected form of transportation. Namely, the chair the chair. All you need is, depending on your size, 3 to6 members of the press my Nordie group to carry your lazy white ass all over town. If they can say stuff like I’m gala gala wanna, like fake African language so much the better. Try it sometime won’t you?

  4. The only problem with a lot of these machines I believe they are not Road Legal so expect a big fine if you are caught riding them on a public road

  5. Most interesting were the Gas bikes or Hybrid and the electric one with the 15 minute charge. Batteries limit your ride; a Hybrid is necessary since battery composition isn’t suitable, altho newer batteries are available they are not economically viable for the average Joe.
    Designs like the Toyota Prius utilizing battery & engine are #1 design in my opinion. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Of course the one that interested me the most was the (only) one not in production – Chainless.

  7. Why are those more expensive than brand new cars? The price of some of these is over exaggerated

  8. I'm impressed with the Hover One. I like the outer shell as I live in an area where the weather is not 100% mild all the time.

  9. FYI – Next vid suggestions cover your end credits on my iPad and maybe all screens. They are readable if the credits are dead centred in the frame as the four video suggestions hang in the corners.

  10. I think Cassie is the best part of the video! I would marry her in a heart beat. Show more videos with her please.

  11. ,I like it and I'm disabled I use to take my bike for long ride but now I can't get up my street. I have a bad back but I have a scooter but its not fast at all can you help me out please

  12. The company that makes the Aero sucks at customer service. Their web site makes it impossible to ask a general question like the price. No phone for support…I won't buy from a company like this.

  13. I can dream about all the motorcycle, because it will never get to sell in developing countries, because big fat petroleum company will stop at nothing to let this motorcycle to be sold in the countries. Big dream.
