Therefore, it has three wheels, two behind and one in front. The latter has the particularity of being able to lean when approaching a curve, or an intersection, in a similar way to a conventional motorcycle. Behind, however, the wheels always remain perpendicular to the ground.

It can also be positioned vertically to take up minimal space, and is equipped with a handle for carrying it by hand.
