BMW promises it has no intention to take away riders' freedoms, but a safer motorcycle never sounds like a poor idea. He starts moving and he gets on the bandwagon stopping.

However, BMW Motorrad says it has no plans for completely eliminating the rider or developing an independent motorcycle.

BMW Motorrad has unveiled an autonomous motorcycle that is cooler than most of the autonomous cars that are out there. When it presented the contraption, Yamaha said the bike had little modifications made to it and was designed this way to tackle riding operations from a human rider's standpoint.

Motobot is a pretty good analogy for this whole scene, as it's gaining steam quickly, and this BMW self-balancing R1200GS is a very good example.

FEMA to test system allowing Trump to send emergency alerts
The system is already used to warn the public about "dangerous weather, missing children, and other critical situations". But it won't be a political message or attack on one of his perceived enemies-or at least, it's not supposed to be.

Last year BMW revealed to the world the R1200RS ConnectedRide prototype; with a host of technologies including Vehicle to Vehicle Communication and a Differential Global Navigation Satellite System, it aimed to make riding a motorcycle safer, more connected and less unsafe. As such, the drone is not planned.

BMW isn't the only company working on this kind of technology.

Special thanks to BMW Canada, BMW USA and BMW Europe for sharing this story with us and all our 300 million readers at Total Motorcycle. Pushing its curiosity for motorcycle dynamics, the company created the self-riding R to help further its understanding of the motorcycle's behavior and how it could eventually receive rider-assist technologies. All he could balance on the seat and at low speeds, and also to follow the owner, turning the steering wheel.

The automaker's BMW Motorrad division has demonstrated an autonomous adventure bike that can ride around a race track and even park itself.
