    Honda Riding Assist-E

    An article in the latest issue of Motorcycle Consumer News describes the new Honda Riding Assist-E (catchy title, huh?). It is described as an "electric vehicle with a low center-of-gravity and very low seat height". However, its claim to fame is that it uses Honda's self-balancing technology that was announced last year. The bike uses a gyroscopic self-balancing device that apparently controls the number of degrees of lean that it will allow you to tilt when cornering. Safety first. There was no comment regarding the range or power of the vehicle. There was also no information regarding its availability or price. I guess installing an air bag in the Gold Wing wasn't enough safety for Honda. Happy days are here again.
