These days, everything is connected to the Internet, and we are on the verge of achieving self-driving vehicles controlled by artificial intelligence. By combining such exciting technology that will shape the future with our RIDEOLOGY development philosophy, Kawasaki intends to take our Joy of Riding Control to a whole new level. The model shown in the video is the latest iteration of the “J” concept vehicle that we announced at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.
“J” is an electric vehicle able to transform and adapt to the riding situation. We plan to equip it with two-way rider-machine communication technology. “J” would be able to pick up the rider’s intent and physical condition, and while taking into account weather, road surface and traffic conditions it could instantly optimize riding position or provide helpful information – all to support you in your pursuit of the ultimate riding experience. Today the team working behind our World Superbike champion provides highly advanced and personalized riding support. What we propose to offer is an even higher level of support, in real time, tailored to each individual rider.
That is the future Kawasaki is contemplating. Riders around the world, with complete peace of mind, each able to fully enjoy the riding experience without distraction. Part of our mission is to enrich the lives of people around the world, and that is the future KHI’s Motorcycle and Engine Company is working towards.
