Honda Riding Assist motorcycle Wins Three Awards at CES 2017
Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today announced that Honda Riding Assist motorcycle, a concept model of Honda‘s self-balancing motorcycle, which was exhibited at the CES 2017, the world’s largest consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow held in Las Vegas from January 5 – 8, 2017, won three awards. The Honda Riding Assist motorcycle won the Best of CES 2017 “Best Innovation” and “Best Automotive Technology” awards as judged by Engadget, the official partner of the Best of CES Awards, as well as the Popular Mechanics magazine’s Best of CES “Editors’ Choice Awards.”
In a global debut at CES, Honda unveiled its Riding Assist technology, which leverages Honda’s robotics technology to create a self-balancing motorcycle that greatly reduces the possibility of falling over while the motorcycle is at rest. Rather than relying on gyroscopes, which add a great deal of weight and alter the riding experience as announced by other companies, the Honda Riding Assist incorporates technology originally developed for the company’s UNI-CUB personal mobility device. Honda Riding Assist is Honda’s proposal to make touring and everyday use of motorcycle more fun.
