    Motorbikes. Hugely exciting things, but inherently unsafe ones. You can’t fall off a car, and so on. Well, the motorbike you see here apparently appeases some of the dangers of riding a bike without impacting upon the excitement. It doesn’t have stabilisers, after all…

    The Hypersport Pro is the work of Damon Motorcycles over in Canada, and it’s a fully electric, 4G-connected bike which will make its debut at CES 2020 in Las Vegas.

    Some sources say a motorcyclist is 27 times more likely to have a serious accident than a motor… carist, and “so far Damon is the only manufacturer dedicating itself to technology that proactively reduces the risk of accidents,” according to, well, Damon.

    Thus, the Hypersport Pro comes equipped with CoPilot technology. It’s not a self-riding motorbike – perhaps the least requested new invention on the planet – rather a bike that reads the roads via the same cocktail of sensors, cameras and radar you’ll find in cars with active safety tech.
