Police have charged a 51-year-old man for allegedly operating a Ninebot One electric unicycle in violation of Japan's road traffic laws in August. The man's electric unicycle had a design inspired by the MSN-04 Sazabi mobile suit that Char pilots in Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack.
According to police, the man was riding the unicycle on public roads. Because it did not have a rearview mirror or headlights, it classified as a vehicle with poor maintenance. Police investigated the case after the man got into an accident with a motorcycle. According to police, the man acknowledged that his actions were dangerous.
