How soon will the Honda self-balancing technology hit the market?
Honda will present a new motorcycle concept at the Tokyo Motor Show – Riding Assist -e is powered by an electric engine and showcases the self-balancing control technology already presented earlier this year. Remember the Riding Assist Concept?
The guys at asphalt&rubber wrote a story on this subject and think that Honda might include this technology soon on their touring motorcycles – just as the Gold Wing, also scheduled to be launched this autumn.
In a global debut at CES, Honda has unveiled its Moto Riding Assist technology, which leverages Honda’s robotics technology to create a self-balancing motorcycle that greatly reduces the possibility of falling over while the motorcycle is at rest. Rather than relying on gyroscopes, which add a great deal of weight and alter the riding experience as announced by other companies, the Honda Moto Riding Assist incorporates technology originally developed for the company’s UNI-CUB personal mobility device.
