Honda’s amazing self-balancing motorcycle defies gravity
So far, a lot of innovative gadgets have been unveiled since the opening of CES 2017 but this self-balancing motorcycle couldn’t be better. Honda has achieved another mile stone by using the Riding Assist technology that doesn’t just keep the bike in the upright position but also makes it easy for the rider to handle the bike. Larger, heavier bikes are more difficult to handle and require more efforts to balance the bike especially when it’s slowing down. This tech aims at providing stability at slow speeds. The real magic is behind the forks (metal bars connecting to the front wheel). The bike autonomously adjusts the angle of front fork by using on-board sensors — calculating thousands of adjustments per second, in order to keep the driver and the bike in the upright position. Instead of gyroscope, it uses an electric motor in the front-wheel hub, that allows it to move by itself.
