You may remember back in January when Honda debuted a prototype motorcycle that supposedly was an all-electric self-balancing bike of the future. Well, now we have our first look into the production version of this bike – called the Honda Riding Assist-e.

Slated for unveiling at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show, this bike in an all-electric ride complete with a low center of gravity and seat height that helps round out the proprietary self-balancing tech. Cleary aimed at beginner riders, while functioning at low speeds the tech kicks in and prevents common amateur mistakes and that would otherwise damage the bike. Few details have been officially released through, so while there is a fair bit of speculation out there regarding the powerplant, specs and different driving modes, we’ll have to wait until the official debut in the coming weeks before learning any more hard facts about this exciting new technology.
