Yamaha’s Self-Riding Electric Bike
Yamaha isn’t new to the concept of self-riding motorcycles, with the original Motoroid being teased in 2017. However, what distinguishes the Motoroid 2 is its realization as a working prototype. It’s far from an ordinary bike, featuring gyroscopes that maintain impeccable balance, ensuring a smooth ride. Furthermore, it incorporates image recognition AI systems, effectively transforming the bike into an intelligent companion capable of navigating roads autonomously. It’s not limited to just staying upright; it can even embark on solo rides without a rider.
Yamaha envisions the Motoroid 2 as more than just an electric bike; it serves as a personalized mobility solution that recognizes its owner. Remarkably, it can gracefully rise from its kickstand and move alongside its rider, offering a “lifelike feel” when someone is riding it, akin to a trusted companion.
Japan Mobility Show 2023
Yamaha is all set to showcase the prototype of the Motoroid 2 at the Japan Mobility Show 2023 in Tokyo next month. Enthusiasts of motorcycles eagerly await a glimpse into the future of riding.
While Yamaha’s plans for a production model remain uncertain, the ongoing development of the Motoroid 2 underscores Yamaha’s commitment to incorporating its futuristic features into upcoming motorcycles.
