    You meet the nicest people on a Honda!

    I’m not clear on this, but isn’t this similar technology as the Segway?

    KYLE
    Similar but vastly differant.

    More, low tech ideas or Jap crap ! Right?
    Maybe they could place these on cruiser bikes so riders would be able to stop and go without paddling there feet for lack of technique. Then again there goes shoe / boot sales

    In the future we will be really fat but with little tiny stick legs. Ugh!

    Wow. Japan is always at the forefront when it comes to futuristic tech. Too bad it wouldn’t fit the walmart fat asses that we have over here. I can see it now. Some walmart three hundred pounder trying to return the thing because they sat on it and broke it!

    The implacations of this for vets that have lost thier legs in war are incredible and us garage and backyard mechanics can make anything cool, can you imagine a chopped harley with this tech but supercharged Tim Allen style? talk about high speed lane changes wow

    Like this thing or not it does prove one thing. This right here is why Honda is kicking Harley’s ass at building motorcycles.

    Honda employs the best engineers money can buy. They are the cream of the crop.

    Harley has willie G and his team of engineers that seem too believe re-designing the same bike over and over [ like that sportster they just released as a new design ] is good enough.

    Honda’s are constantly changing and they are faster than the HD counterpart and last longer and most important to most people they cost less. Although I personally believe in buying American, I can certainly see why so many people are buying the japanese bikes. I just wish Harley would wake up and build a bike that could compete with the Japanese bikes, in all aspect from price to quality.

    I believe HD needs a younger mind in their designing department. They should fire Willie and get someone that can relate to the younger riders too head up their design team before it is too late.

    more fat people!!!! cmon, and the prick that said “You meet the nicest people on a Honda!”

    My 3 Honda Accords were the best vehicles I have ever owned, bar none. Never cost me anything but an oil change every 6000 miles. No reason why all cars should not be that dependable. This invention shows that Honda is not just synonymous with dependability, but with innovation, too. You can’t bring a Segway on a plane as a carry-on, but this can be brought along by any traveler with mobility or breathing issues that make it hard for them to travel. It will fit in the overhead. The huge baby boomer population is going to be a big market for this item in the near future. I just hope this gadget is affordable when I need it. **I do agree with the comment above about the size of the Walmart shoppers’ derrieres. I feel sorry for those too fat to fit on one of these. I’m going to have fun on mine.

    True! just my opinion…Pam, I love my never been in the shop 17 yr old accord.

    HEY GUYS, LET’S STAY ON POINT. WHY DOES EVERY DEBATE HAVE TO TURN INTO A BASH HD FEST. I HAVE WORKED IN THE AUTO/MOTORCYLE INDUSTRY FOR OVER 35 YEARS IN BIKE AND CAR DEALERSHIPS. THE TRUTH IS AMERICAN CAR MAKERS PRODUCE SOME QUALITY PRODUCTS AND HAVE AT TIMES
    MADE SOME LEMONS JUST LIKE TOYOTA’S RECENT FLUBS. WHAT HAS THIS MOTORIZED POGO STICK HAVE TO DO WITH AMERICAN QUALITY OR HARLEY’S MARKETING STRATEGY? I DONT THINK THE WORLD IS GOING BEAT HONDA’S DOOR DOWN FOR A CHANCE TO THE OWN ARMCHAIR WE SEE HERE. HD’S SUCCESS IN THE FUTURE MAY REST ON DOING WHAT IT KNOWS , BUILDIND A THUMPING V-TWIN WITH CLASSIC STYLING AND LET THE JAPPERS DO WHAT THEY DO , CATER TO THEIR CROWD. MY 250 LB BUTT IS HAPPY WITH MY 25 YEAR OLD F150 AND MY BIG HARLEY AND YOU CAN BE HAPPY WITH YOUR WHATEVER. LIVEANDLETLIVETORIDEAGLIDE

    Wow, amazing engineering on the wheel, I don’t care who made it. I can see a lot of ankle injuries from dragging toes 1/4″ above a carpet, but the overall design elements of this thing are awesome. I predict Corbin will have a studded seat available for it by the end of the month.

    Okay.. now redo the video, but substitute the ‘girls’ with Sumo wrestlers!

    While I can appreciate the engineering within this device that may lead to innovative future products, this is only a gimmick product with no real use other than to create hype.
    Don’t believe it? Then try using it anywhere other than the room(s) where this footage was filmed. Better bring a chiropractor and a dentist along too. By the way, the ASIMO robot didn’t seem to be any more succesful with stairs than this thing would be!

    Add some chrome and flames and they can appeal to a whole new market.

  16. 16 maroco May 12th, 2010 at 4:40 pm

    very advanced tecnollogy, loots of aplications, and one more step to the future.

    my new Street Glide is way more fun.. Can eat bugs and watch the World roll by..

    Friggin’ Awesome!

    You can carry it on an airplane or stow it in a car, something you can’t do with a Sedgeway.

    It does have practical applications – This would be ideal for walking the 3 -day SEMA Show in Vegas, or the Indy Dealer Motorcycle Show.

    It doesn’t have much practicality for outdoor use like the bigger Sedgeway which is used by Police for law inforcement patroling and Tourists in resport areas.

    But once on the market I’m sure many other walking applications will find it. Cocktail waitresses, handicapped access to tight spaces, production line supervisors, etc….

    But I give Honda kudos for an incredible design.!!!!
