As electric unicycles become more popular, it goes without saying that some people will want to use the things off-road. InMotion's V11 is designed with that in mind, as it features 2.75 inches (70 mm) of air-sprung suspension travel.

Along with its suspension, the vehicle also has an 18 by 3-inch tire, a 2,200-watt motor that takes it to a top speed of 31 mph (50 km/h), and a 1,500-Wh/84-volt lithium battery pack that's reportedly good for a range of up to 75 miles (121 km) per 10-hour charge – the charge time goes down to five hours if two chargers are simultaneously used in the V11's dual charging ports.

Other features include LED front and rear lighting (including a brake light), a flip-up handle that allows the unicycle to be rolled alongside the user like a wheeled suitcase, and a built-in kickstand. The whole thing is dust- and water-resistant, weighs 60 lb (27 kg), and can accommodate riders weighing up to 265 lb (120 kg).

The InMotion V11 is available for preorder now – a US$500 deposit is required up front, with the balance of the $1,999 retail price to be invoiced later on. Shipping should take place at the end of the month.

It can be seen in use, in the video below.

Potential buyers might also want to check out the Kingsong KS-S18 electric unicycle. Available for preorder at a price of $2,845, it features 2.25 inches (57 mm) of air-sprung suspension, a top speed of about 31 mph (50 km/h) and a claimed range of 100 km (62 miles) per charge.

How many people are competent to ride a beast like this? How many will buy one?

I've taken a fall at 15 mph on a Focus Designs SBU and it was rather painful. I can't envision doing so at 35 mph! The wheel has some great features, but I agree with paul314, it's not going to be for everyone.

Really Cool, but falling at ANY speed without any kind of protection, other than a helmet...

Zero and all, paul, as proven by the honest promo video.

Kingsong S18 suspensión travel is 100mm....... (not 57mm as mentioned).

Pegs the meter on the cool factor. It looks like your legs are the shock absorbers, though. If they get the engineering right this could be way cool. I'm too old for something like this, but rich kids, yea I can see that especially on college campuses. :-) Now if you could slip it in your backpack...or if it WAS your backpack. :-) (everything inside would have to be extra rugged though)
