This looks like the Bombardier Embrio concept. The Embrio has smaller front wheel that acts like a stability control when the Embrio is stopped or traveling below 12mph.

Or the Canadian Benjamin Poss Gulak, with his one unicycle with two wheels.

Here is the new U2 version. It is a hybrid between a motorcycle and what you see there. I opens like scissors and unfolds into a motorcycle. (Not really like scissors, more of a  linear motion)

I just notice that Ben has a blog! http://bpgulak.com/

He his working on this neat track scooter call DTV.
