Robo Motorcycles

Some interesting robotic features in the first 3 concept motorcycles. The first Honda disconnects the handlebars from the front wheel and self balances. Otto Pilot motorcycle...

  • Had a Honda 500 four get squirrelly on me by over breaking at 90mph. Didn't get it under control until somewhere in the 50s, Still get cold sweats thinking about it.

    Not sure I would want the handlebar disconnected, or even have the steering taken control of like car's have these days.

    It is nice to see anything developed in the way of safety, but a motorcycle is inherently dangerous, and requires the right care from the person to operate it safely.

    Over-braking definitely leads to both over and breaking. I've had both Honda and Yamaha enduros which I only rode on the street. Riding a motorcycle, it's not if but when and how bad you'll get hurt.
