Honda Is Working On Self Balancing And Driving Motorcycle

Most major industry giants are working on self driving cars, but not Honda. The Japanese Automakers are instead working on a new experimental motorcycle that rides and balances itself.

It is based on technology developed for Honda’s ASIMO robot and its self-balancing scooter called the UNI-CUB, the Honda Riding Assist technology doesn’t use traditional gyroscopes for balance since they can add a lot of weight to a vehicle. Instead, when the experimental motorcycle Honda has developed is moving at speeds of less than four kilometers per hour—like when pulling out of a garage or starting and stopping at a street light—the angle of the front fork is automatically lowered to help improve stability. At the same time, minute left and right steering adjustments are automatically made to the front wheel to ensure the motorcycle always maintains its balance—with or without a rider on board.

There’s no word on when the Honda Riding Assist technology will be available on the Honda’s motorcycles but when it comes, it will be one hell of a feature.
