Honda is riding Assist-e – At the Tokyo Motor Show, Honda will present the riding Assist-e. For the first time, it is integrated into an electric motorcycle. Honda Riding Assist-e should not only prevent the bike from falling over at low speeds. According to the announcement from the Japanese corporate headquarters, it should make motorcycling easier and safer by using state-of-the-art robot technology.

The Honda Riding Assist-e abandons the thermal motor to adopt electric traction. Not only that, the evolution of the bike that stands alone is no longer based on an existing model but is a whole new concept. At the base, there is always the technology that Honda has been developing for years on humanoid robots. But Honda does not reveal the secrets of his motorcycle that doesn’t fall. The Japanese brand is waiting to unveil them at the end of October at the Tokyo Motor Show. But some hypotheses can be made.
Looking at his digital instrumentation, we see a “Mode 4”. It shows different levels of help to get the bike to balance at low speeds. Also, the instruments also show the sign of the degrees of inclination of the motorcycle. The information is not important for those who touch the asphalt with knees and elbows, but for beginners to whom the Riding Assist-e is dedicated. The low saddle, and the center of gravity and urban design combined with electric traction, seem to confirm its destination.

In this announcement, the e-motorcycle is already referred to as a “model” by Honda. However, it is still unclear whether the Honda Riding Assist-e is a vehicle that will be built in series production, or whether it is a further concept study, as Honda already showed in the form of an NC 750 with a conventional internal combustion engine at the beginning of 2017. Honda has also announced that it will showcase the Honda CRF 250 Rally, CB 1300 Super Bol d’ Or and CB 400 Super Four models at the Tokyo Motor Show 2017. The 45th Tokyo Motor Show starts on Wednesday, October 25, 2017.
