Despite the whole world seeming to have agreed that motor vehicles should have at least two wheels, some drivers just can t abandon their yen to kick it asymmetrically. The guy who built the Riot Wheel is one of those people. And he s ready to up the ante. He's adding a 200hp electric motor to his monowheel vehicle and looking to set a speed record for fastest electric-powered, single-wheeled vehicle piloted by an insane genius (not that a record for that exists, mind you). It's a tremendously risky proposition, and one he's not taking lightly. Ok, he's taking it pretty lightly, but not the technical stuff — that's serious business.
