Is Yamaha Fixin’ To Put An End To Humans Riding Motorcycles?

Yamaha has unveiled Motobot, a humanoid robot designed to ride superbikes. The initial version showcased here travels slowly and needs training wheels, but Yamaha says it hopes to get Motobot riding at speeds exceeding 120MPH on a race track. Enjoy the promo video below.

Yamaha sees its robotic rider as a testbed for rider safety and support systems, both of which have to work well under punishing conditions. It could also lead to technology that’s useful outside of the bike world.
