I emailed on that & there's some kind of automatic system that deploys stands or stand, they're working on the details.

This issue was part of the killer of the old "Gyro Car" concept from the 30'/40's/50's et al. The vehicle wasn't quite just get in & go since the system had to take a minute or so to deploy, & retract, so was less convenient. That will be true of this from our (yours & my) perspective as well, but from the perspective of someone who's never ridden motorcycles/scooters to speak of the economy, relative ease of finding small parking spaces etc. might be novel enough to hook 'em in.
