Honda Ride Assist

Honda recently unveiled its Ride Assist technology at the 2017 CES show, which allows a motorcycle to stand upright while stationary. The system does not use gyros, instead, it utilizes a steering actuator and a hinged triple clamp to make corrections to maintain balance. Judging by the footage in the video below of the motorcycle autonomously following a person through a building, it also has an electric powertrain to supplement what looks like a traditional internal combustion engine. This is all in the prototype phase at the moment, and we are unsure as to how and when it will arrive in the marketplace, though the technology could help to prevent many of those embarrassing low-speed debacles that every motorcyclists is subject to at one point or another.
