Video: Honda's self-balancing to be unveiled at Tokyo Motor Show

1 of 5

At the beginning of this year Honda unveiled their self-balancing concept bike at the Las Vegas CES tech show.

The bike unveiled then featured the same parallel twin engine as used in the NC series of bikes, and now Honda have revealed images of a new self-balancing bike which is all electric and will be unveiled to the public later this month at the Tokyo Motor Show.

Instead of using heavy gyroscopes to keep the bike upright, Honda have used computer technology from their famous ASIMO robot and UNI-MO self-balancing scooter to keep the bike upright

The technology will make it easier to keep the bike upright in slow-moving traffic and at a standstill too. You wouldn’t even have to be on the bike at all for it to remain perfectly balanced!

The system enters its ‘balance mode’ when the bike is moving three miles an hour or less, extending the forks and front wheel away from the motorcycle and providing greater stability.

The video from Honda’s initial launch in January can be seen below:
