On 5 January, Honda premiered a concept 2 wheeler, dubbed â€œRiding Assist,â€ CES 2017 in Las Vegas.
Riding Assist utilizes Hondaâ€™s own trademark balance control technology that the company developed for use with the ASIMO brand of humanoid robots mounted onto a 2 wheeler motorcycle.
Regardless of whether there is a rider on or off the vehicle, the bike can stand on its own, and by being able to self-correct if the rider happens to disturb the bikeâ€™s balance, diminishing wobbliness when running at low speeds or when stopped as well as the risk of the bike toppling over.
However, when normally running, the bike maintains the kind of control in line with current generation motorcycles. Honda representatives stated that â€œRiding Assist is our foray into making touring and everyday riding a more enjoyable experience.â€
