Okay, we've all read and heard about the Swedish OkeMobile, right?
The enclosed motorcycle that drives balanced until it comes to a stop and two stabilizers drop down to prevent the vehicle from falling over.
Well, as of this date (Jan. 7, 2017) Yahoo News had a news spot about Honda developing a self-balancing motorcycle. When you come to a stop, it still stays upright... No outriggers or automatic stabilizers!

Of course we all want such for the Litestar and Pulse, but the act to create a properly balanced vehicle in the first place so the system works properly is another can of worms.

Like I said, I didn't read the news. Only looked at the headline and pictures. So, I have no idea what type of gyroscope is involved.
