Honda launches Self-Balancing Motorcycle at CES 2017 January 6, 2017

Honda has revealed what it calls the ‘Riding Assist’ technology at the progressing Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Honda Riding Assist basically uses technology that permits the cruiser to adjust itself in slow speeds without the use of gyroscopes. This is achieved essentially by taking out the cruiser’s front forks and afterward moving the front wheel forward and also backward simply like cyclists do to adjust themselves at extremely slow speeds.

The most self-adjusting technology uses gyroscopes, yet that includes a ton of weight, which could confine a bike’s capacity to move. Rather, the Honda Riding Assist bike influences the organization’s Robotics technology. Whenever drew in, the system expands the fork point of the front suspension lengthening the bike’s wheelbase and, separating the front forks from the handlebars. The system then uses minute directing contributions to keep the bike perfectly balanced, without the use of heavy gyroscopes or different mass-moving gadgets. In fact, the concept bike Honda showcased at CES can even silently propel itself along following its owner, indicating that there is space for autonomous technology as well.

This is not the first run through such self-adjusting technology has been uncovered in concept form in bikes. In October 2016, BMW Motorrad divulged its self-adjusting Vision Next 100 Concept bike. As far as styling, not at all like BMW Motorrad’s futuristic concept, Honda’s self-adjusting Riding Assist cruiser is more in accordance with the present design trend. Actually, the bike showcased at CES looks especially like a production bike however Honda hasn’t declared any plans to put Riding Assist into its present models.

Regardless, such a technology won’t just have the capacity to make things less difficult for new riders, however, could likewise help numerous riders in moving heavy bikes like the Honda Goldwing at lower speeds.
