The vehicle started life as a 125cc scooter, stripped of all the unnecessary bits, he welded a steel cockpit onto it. A windshield, doors, and side windows were also added. The ends of the handlebars were cut off and reattached at 90 degrees to fit inside the narrow cockpit. A pair of retractable “training wheels” keep the vehicle upright and at slow speeds.
This sort of design without being able to put your feet down, and having wide "training wheels" at low speeds, won't allow for normal motorcycle movement between the busy traffic. I get the retractable wheels are certainly a good idea for higher speed cornering. I've only ever seen a few enclosed BMW bikes in my city and it's true these designs never really caught on, and yet they could be so practical for really wet climates.
Quite entertaining though watching the video on the build process as well as the hilarious oversight on the first test ride.
