The Tokyo Motor Show, understood for far-out concepts, is underway in Japan. We have actually already seen some rather unusual layouts our own selves, yet none of them are anything like exactly what Yamaha just revealed: a self-governing, motorcycle-riding humanoid robot called Motobot.

There’s little information other than an impressive video of Motobot navigating around an abandoned airfield. Obviously it take turns, touch the clutch, and twist the throttle, all while somehow staying upright. It’s quite an excellent view to witness, even if the robot still requires a pair of training wheels.

Yamaha claims that, at some point, the goal is for Motobot to be able to ride an unmodified motorbike on a racetrack at more than 200 kilometers each hr. Like many high-concept jobs, the idea is to take the lessons found out over the life of this project and apply them to Yamaha’s present business, with specific regard to cyclist security and also rider support systems. The company additionally claims it wishes to use the modern technology behind Motobot to “pioneer new lines of business.” We have no idea what that indicates, but certainly creates excitement to find out after seeing Motobot at work.

Office workers are made up of parts of the whole, working on the project.
