BMW Introduces Its Self-Balancing Motorcycle Of The Future
If you happen to be almost anyone on the planet, you probably know that you can’t get off a bike or motorcycle without using a kickstand. With a bicycle, it will fall over and mildly annoy you, but with a motorcycle, you could cause damage to it. We’ve already shown you the motorcycle helmet of the future, but BMW wants to give you the motorcycle of the future, which happens to self-balance itself when you get off of it.

This isn’t just any old bike that you’d see outside of a diner at 3 am, but something you’d see pass you in your self-driving car. BMW also claims that this bike is so safe that you can ride it without a helmet. Until we have a highly-developed system set up to prevent accidents on the road, I would see suggest wearing a helmet on any type of bike that leaves your extremities exposed. I would suggest the Skully AR-1 for that. Rocking that helmet with this bike would make you look like you traveled back in time.
Have a look at the bike below in the following videos. I will hold off on buying a motorcycle until I can get something like this.
