Honda Riding Assist

Honda's all-new Riding Assist borrows technology found in the company's UNI-CUB personal mobility concept and Asimo robot to help motorcycles maintain balance at rest or when it's moving at slow speeds. Steering speeds under 3mph is controlled with the help of a small motor, which makes steering adjustments on the fly to keep itself stable. A separate motor, which is controlled by a device that sits under the headlight, extends the rake angle of the motorcycle at low speed, making it easier for the bike to balance on its own. That's not all, there's also a self-driving mode that can enable a motorcycle move on its own, thanks to a third electric motor located in the front wheel's hub.

Honda Motocompo Briefcase Scooter


If Tony Stark designed a folding motorcycle / scooter back in the 1980s, it would probably look something like the Honda Motocompo. Called a "Trunk Bike," this vehicle easily fits inside subcompact cars like the Honda City. The City's baggage compartment was actually developed around the Motocompo, since its handlebars, seat, and foot-pegs all fold into the scooter's rectangular plastic body. One things you may not have known, was that it was originally marketed in conjunction with the City in television ads featuring British ska/2-tone band Madness.
