Attached Image We have no idea why they would want to invest the time and money in autonomous riding, but it seems like Yamaha feels there is a future in this area. Using a custom Yamaha R1M, with balance rods on the side, Yamaha introduced to us its humanoid robot, Motobot in the video below.

As of now, the robot is still in its infant stage, but its inventors and programmers believe that the robot will be able surpass biking champion, Valentino Rossi, who is riding for Yamaha in Moto GP now, in terms of skills in the future.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
