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.
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.
