A host of images and preliminary details about a new motorcycle concept Honda has created have emerged prior to the bike’s Tokyo Motor Show debut later this month.
Dubbed the Riding Assist-e, the bike is special because it is self-balancing. Ride Apart says that no concrete details have been confirmed about how the bike manages to maintain balance at low speed, however.
With that being said, it is assumed that the Riding Assist-e has a small electric motor under the seat and that the battery pack and gyroscope systems are mounted low in the chassis to offer optimum weight distribution and a low center of gravity.
Elsewhere, an image of the instrument panel reveals a small screen displaying all of the bike’s key functions, including its lean angle and speed.
Be sure to stay tuned as we learn more about the Riding Assist-e in the coming weeks.
