Honda showed off it’s new concept motorcycle with the Honda Riding Assist it was first demonstrated at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The system is amazingly simple When engaged, the system increases the fork angle, lengthening the bike’s wheelbase and, apparently, disconnecting the front forks from the handlebars. The system then uses minute steering inputs to keep the bike perfectly balanced, without the use of heavy gyroscopes or other mass-shifting devices. The concept bike Honda built to demonstrate the tech can even silently propel itself along.
Honda says the technology was developed as an offshoot of the Uni-Cub, the automaker’s self-balancing mobility unicycle concept. At the company’s presentation at CES, Honda showed off it’s Riding Assist by having a motorcycle slowly wheel itself onstage, following a Uni-Cub.
While Honda hasn’t stated any plans to put Riding Assist into production, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this tech included in a future Honda motorcycle.
Check out the video below of this awesome bike in action.
I for one am really happy to see this kind of tech coming out and the applications in the real world could save so many lives while keeping the road safer.
