Meet Honda’s Roly-poly bike: it can stand by herself, and it can be your pet
Honda revealed the “Moto Riding Assist” technology – a system that can transform your bike into a self-balancing vehicle.
It needs no side or center stand, and you don’t have to put your feet down at a stop. It stays in a candle shape by herself. Moreover, if you can call it it follows you like a pet.

The Moto Riding Assist concept was unveiled at CES Las Vegas and Honda proudly says that unlike other motorcycle manufacturers, it uses no gyroscopes, but a technology derived from the UniCub project. For those of you not in touch with the latest gadgets, UniCub is a kind of wheeled chair that you can ride in your office.
A similar concept, but with a more futuristic design, was presented a couple of months ago by BMW Motorrad. It acts as a vision for the next 100 years of motorcycling, and the German engineers say that you won’t ever need a helmet to ride it.
