Yamaha makes just about everything powered by engines except for cars (although they’ve built car engines in the past). The Japanese brand makes everything from motorcycles to pressure washers and it’s getting more into growing tech fields like robotics and drones. Yamaha has some big plans for the annual International Consumer Electronics Show coming up in Las Vegas in January, let’s take a look at what we can expect to see.

With a goofy name that’s not to be confused with the Nintendo video game series, Yamaha’s MOTOROiD is a motorcycle with artificial intelligence. We don’t hear a lot about autonomy in motorcycles like we do with cars, but Yamaha is becoming one of the biggest players in autonomous motorcycle tech. MOTOROiD can interact with the rider by reading your biometrics and movements. The idea is that if it senses your about to fall, it can correct your movements and safely prop you back up. It’s still very much in a concept phase and we’re looking forward to seeing any technology from MOTOROiD make it to a production bike.

Chunky tires from Falken hug those shiny black wheels that have a blue outline to match the body paint. Technical specifications have not been provided, other than the concept’s dimensions: 4,490 millimeters (177 inches) long, 1,960 mm (77 in.) wide, and 1,750 mm (69 in.) tall.

MOTOBOT Version 2

Here’s a different take on motorcycle autonomy that’s a little more exciting than MOTOROiD. MOTOBOT is an autonomous race bike complete with a humanoid robot riding the bike serving as a place to store the hardware that makes it autonomous. It has the ability to exceed 200 kph (124 mph) and it can whip around a racetrack all by itself. Back in October, we reported on MOTOBOT’s attempt to beat living legend Valentino Rossi in a virtual race on a real race track, but the human seven-time MotoGP champion beat the robot’s lap time by a significant 31.764 seconds. Despite being beaten so badly, MOTOBOT is a pretty darn impressive machine. How many of you human riders can fall short of Rossi’s lap time by only 31 seconds? We reached out to Yamaha asking if any updates have been made since then and Yamaha confirmed this is the same Version 2 bot that raced Rossi with no significant changes made since the big race.

Yamaha's autonomous Motobot can't beat Valentino Rossi... yet

  Yamaha's autonomous Motobot can't beat Valentino Rossi... yet This racing robot can go fast, but Yamaha won't be satisfied until it can outrun a champion.Yamaha's Motobot goals for 2017 are twofold: Achieve a straight-line speed of 200 kph (124 mph) and beat Valentino Rossi -- a seven-time MotoGP champion -- in a lap around a racetrack. After accomplishing the first task, Yamaha set out to nail the second. Sadly, it was still about 30 seconds off Rossi's time, but it's getting there and that's the most important part.

06GEN Automated Public Personal Mobility

This little thing is like an autonomous golf cart. Intended for low speeds and short distances, 06GEN is “envisaged for use in environments shared with pedestrians covering a few kilometers,” providing “safe, comfortable and convenient on-demand low-speed mobility autonomously,” according to a press release.

Niken a Go Go: Yamaha’s Radical New Three-Wheeled Sportbike

  Niken a Go Go: Yamaha’s Radical New Three-Wheeled Sportbike Yamaha has been on a product tear over the past few years.Two wheels up front and one in the rear isn’t exactly a new idea. Can-Am’s Spyders offer an open-air experience for those who, for whatever reason, would rather not be astride a two-wheeler. The Morgan 3 Wheeler is an archaic hoot. And Piaggio has been building its MP3 line of scooters for over a decade now. It’s this last machine that the Niken most closely resembles.

Yamaha already makes all kinds of industrial robots and now it’s getting into the farm equipment game. The YMR-01 industrial drone has six rotor axes, two of which use vertical coaxial rotors making for a total of eight rotors. This is “to create ideal downward air currents regardless of travel direction.” It can spray farm fields with nozzles near the coaxial axes.

For a more precise spraying robot, the FAZER R offers all the features of existing unmanned helicopters plus a “Turn Assistance” feature. “The new technology realizes improved controllability and spraying performance by turning to maintain fixed spacing for spraying, holding evenly spaced flying paths, and maintaining flying speed,” says the press release. “Operated simply by turning the spraying switch on or off, this new function achieves improved spraying accuracy without relying on the operator’s flying skill."

From autonomous motorcycles to an autonomous golf cart to farm drones, Yamaha’s display at CES will be a nice snapshot of the diversity of the brand and what it’s capable of.

Yamaha is Bringing the FJR1300P Police Motorcycle to the U.S. .
Having seen success in Europe, Yamaha's sport touring cop bike is now reporting for duty in the States.There’s a new police bike you might start seeing patrolling American streets soon, and this one isn’t a big, shiny cruiser. Rather, it’s a sport touring bike that’s been modified for police duty. The Yamaha FJR1300P is Yamaha’s flagship police bike in Europe, but it wasn’t available in the United States until now. Other parts of the world rely heavily on motorcycles as police vehicles while over here they’re used more as decorations to put in parades.
