PostSubject: Toss out the side stand and use   Fri Jan 06, 2017 9:17 am

Honda has unveiled a new gravity defying, self-balancing motorcycle at CES 2017. Based on its Uni-Cub technology, Honda's prototype Moto Riding Assist has been designed to balance itself while being ridden by a rider even at a low speed. The bike also boasts of some self-driving capabilities and has been customised to balance itself when there is no rider.
Honda spokesperson Sage Marie said that the bike can also be equipped with self-driving features which could, for instance, allow riders to get off the vehicle curbside and walk away, while the bike finds its own parking spot, CNET reported.
The bike's technology is based on Honda's self-balancing Uni-Cub scooter and the ASIMO robot. The bike does not make use of traditional gyroscopes for balancing. Instead, the bike has been designed to automatically adjust and lower the front fork angling, especially when moving at lower speeds, according to a report by Gizmodo.
The bike is also capable of seamlessly moving between regular riding mode to balance mode. The bike makes use of "robotics technology to create a self-balancing motorcycle that greatly reduces the possibility of falling over while the motorcycle is at rest," Honda said.
Meanwhile, it is still unclear if Honda plans to launch a production line for the prototype. There is also no word yet about whether the company's bikes would come with the Riding Assist technology in the near future.

LOL, I wonder how it works when one gets out of shape on a tight corner and you have a get off, does the bike just stop and hold it's self upright until you crawl back on? Yeh right LOL.

Next they will have software so you can get off the bike and it will find a parking spot and you will be able to call it back on your I phone. Wow what progress. Howard

Usual solution Oldwing,. You have your butt chipped, if the bike doesnt recognise you it activates a 6" bolt and firing carge contraption below the seat.
That should put the thieving buggers off.
And a separate alarm isn't required as the screams will be audible in a 2 mile radius :-)

Kinda reminds me of the early days of NASA. It didn't take long for the first Astronauts to discover ball point pens didn't work in orbit. NASA spent three million dollars making what became the Fisher space pen with a pressurized ink supply.
The Russian Cosmonauts had discovered the same problem. They were told, "use a pencil".
Somtimes over engineering really isn't worth the cost.
