INMOTION E20 previews as new e-unicycle for more flexible, liberating motorized mobility

INMOTION presents the E20 as a unique take on e-mobility that only takes a couple of minutes to master despite its one-wheeled design. The "self-balancing" unicycle is touted to land with performance that "crushes" those of competing scooters in a chassis that supports a number of riding positions and also integrates its own audio and RGB accents. It is coming to a crowdfunding site near you soon.

INMOTION's latest product might prove an option for those interested in battery-powered mobility, yet lack the bandwidth (or space) for anything with handlebars or even 2 wheels. The OEM also indicates that these potential consumers might not be in need of either, too, hinting that even children will take not much more than "3 minutes" to master the E20's "most liberating electric ride yet".

Indeed, the vehicle looks more substantial and stable compared to other e-unicycles on the market - nevertheless, INMOTION still asserts that it retains the main advantage of its category with a width of up to 55% less than some more traditional scooters, and that a family might thus be able to fit up to 3 of its units in a single car.

Despite its monolithic shape, however, INMOTION also asserts that it will support the same sit/stand use-cases as some 'extreme' all-terrain scooters (albeit possibly mostly for shorter riders). 

The E20 is also backed to deliver self-balancing scooter-"crushing" performance thanks to a motor with a peak output of 900W (although it might go at 450W under most conditions). It is rated to conquer most urban terrain thanks to its 14-inch single wheel rated to climb slopes of up to 15°. 

The new unicycle has a battery with 12+ protective measures baked into its management system, rated to support a range of up to 30 kilometers (km, or ~19 miles). It can do so at up to 20km per hour (km/h, or ~12mph) - although some of its predecessors, those from INMOTION included, come with greater top speeds such as 25km/h (~15mph).

Nevertheless, the OEM touts the E20 as the best source of "Freedom, Flexibilty and Fun" slated to hit Kickstarter soon. It will apparently do so as a single white SKU that also integrates a Bluetooth speaker and LED safety lights, although that apparently leaves "over 850cm2" of space to make each unicycle one's own with stickers or decals.
