Honda Riding Assist motorcycle, a concept model of the Honda self-balancing motorcycle, was exhibited at CES 2017, the world’s largest consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow.
In a global debut at CES, Honda unveiled the Honda Riding Assist motorcycle, which leverages our robotics technology to create a self-balancing motorcycle that greatly reduces the possibility of failing over while the motorcycle is at rest. Rather than relying on gyroscopes, which add a great deal of weight and alter the riding experience, the Honda Riding Assist motorcycle incorporates technology originally developed for the company’s UNI-CUB personal mobility device. Honda Riding Assist, as part of the Cooperative Mobility Ecosystem, is a proposal to make touring and everyday use of motorcycle more fun.
The Honda Riding Assist motorcycle won three top awards at CES 2017: The Best of CES 2017, “Best Innovation” and “Best Automotive Technology” awards as judged by Engadget*1, the official partner of the Best of CES Awards, as well as the Popular Mechanics magazine’s*2 Best of CES “Editors’ Choice Awards.”
