The Hamster--An All-Terrain Scooter

Russian inventor Eduard Luzyanin took a 150cc scooter engine and tracks from a snowmobile to invent the Hamster. Three pairs of shock absorbers help ease the ride, although steering it is hard: all the rider can do is lean into turns to shift directions. But it can move as quickly as 27 MPH.

Luzyanin has equipped his ultimate commuter vehicle for hard conditions. There's a gas can mounted on the back, as well as survival tools and 49 feet of rope. I can't wait for this to hit the American market!

I don't imagine you'd want something you could only steer by leaning to go faster. While it would complicate the whole thing substantially, I think it would be a lot more appealing with parallel twin track units that would respond differentially to the handlebars.

I'd want to see a roll bar. This thing looks too narrow for off-road stability, and it would suck to have it crush your leg in a roll-over. Also, why so slow?
