If you thought you wouldn’t see a motorcycle drive itself in your lifetime, Honda just proved you wrong. The automotive marque has just unveiled its groundbreaking Riding Assist technology at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show, which comes in the form of a next-generation motorcycle that can balance itself regardless of whether it’s carrying a rider or not. More impressively, the bike can even autonomously track and follow behind you at walking speed. This is accomplished not by the use of gyroscopes, which proved to be too heavy, but by balancing systems developed for its ASIMO and Uni-Cub concepts.
However, don’t expect production models to hit the market any time soon as Riding Assist only represents Honda’s “dream” for now. Watch the fascinating video above.
