Using an unconventional balancing system in combination with a hard protective shell, the Honda Gyro² aims to target the consumer that doesn’t see the practicality or convenience of the traditional bike. This urban scooter uses two separte stabilizing technologies to balance its hard shell: Honda UX-3 software and a rotating gyrowheel. Using dual mono-swing arms the rider can steer at both the rear and front, avoiding lean at corners while maintaining balance.
The pictures from rear view cameras are projected on the inside of the transparent shell and three yellow warning lights increase in intensity in their corresponding direction as objects come closer. The transparent shell can also be covered in printed vinyl, enabling not only the standard choice of colors for the body, but patterns too.
