First Look: Noah Personal transport

Looks like a unicycle but more stable than a motorcycle - here's Brazil's take on a new form of personal two-wheel transport

The rider's body movement controls the Noah's performance

HERE'S ANOTHER clever alternative to your usual bog-standard motorcycle design, fresh from design guru Andrei França.

The Noah high performance concept vehicle looks like a unicycle, but has two tyres, mounted together for increased stability and grip.

The Noah is piloted by leaning forward, back or side to side to determine acceleration, braking and turning, without the need for pedals or buttons.

Andrei França is a designer from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and the Noah won second place in the Plascar Automotive Design Contest 2007.

The Noah uses two tyres mounted side-by-side
