Honda has used its “Riding Assist” technology to create a self-balancing motorcycle concept vehicle, that greatly reduces the possibility of falling over while the motorcycle is at rest.
Honda is focusing on low speed stability with “Rider Assist” technology, aiding riders when traveling at speeds less than 3 mph. The technology automatically increases the rake, giving the bike a lower center of gravity and an extended wheelbase. To maintain balance, the Honda Riding Assist motorcycle steers to the left and right in minute amounts. Think of how a Trials rider or how a cyclist maintains balance while stopped.
