Honda’s self-balancing robot bike

Honda’s new ‘Riding Assist’ motorcycle shuns the gyroscopes used by other brands, which the Japanese company says add a great deal of weight and alter the riding experience. Instead, robotics technology from the ‘UNI-CUB’ self-balancing personal mobility device keeps the machine upright by rotating the bars and adjusting the rake to balance the centre of gravity.
