Fun Riding at Every Speed

Honda Riding Assist motorcycle, a concept model of our self-balancing motorcycle, was exhibited at CES 2017, the world's largest consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow.

In a global debut at CES, we 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 our 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."
