Call it steer-by-wire. There are no bulky, heavy gyroscopes. In Honda’s vision of the future, Riding Assist disengages the handlebars from the forks below 3 mph and diverts control of the front wheel to a computer. The computer senses lean, and then tiny, independent but synchronized electric motors controlling both the fork and handlebar provide minute steering inputs, moving the front wheel side-to-side thousands of times per second. It’s virtually imperceptible; the bike stands or slowly rolls perfectly upright, except in the case of more extreme tips where the wheel noticeably swings. Above 3 mph, two anchors engage and lock the forks in place, returning the motorcycle to conventional steering.
