I have vague recollections of this vehicle being featured at World of Motion. I remember thinking how cool and sleek I would look jetting around New Jersey in one of these in the futuristic 1990s. Sadly I still haven’t seen one Lean Machine on the streets, but I have seen these handouts they used to give out about them on sale online.

Hmmm. This starts of this video is illuminating. Maybe I would not have been jetting around so futuristicly? Was it because the learning curve was steep that this never caught on? Or maybe it is because it just looks like a death trap?
