TOKYO Amid the rapid advances in motorcycle technology, Honda Motor is pushing the envelope even further with a self-balancing system that could pave the way for a whole new kind of ride.

Participating in the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January for the first time in 10 years, Honda stole the show with its self-balancing motorcycle. The prototype, which utilizes what Honda calls the Riding Assist system, was developed using technology the automaker accumulated through its Asimo series of humanoid robots and other projects.
