Honda just announced that it will cease development of Asimo, the super cute humanoid that tours the world in the name of stunt marketing. Asimo was 18 years old. Asimo, once heralded as the future of robotics, was not even old enough to buy a beer. But it was always happy to help sell you a Honda automobile.
Heading into CES 2017, we had a good idea as to some of the big trends we’d see. And we weren’t totally wrong—Amazon’s Alexa assistant was baked into gadgets everywhere, even in cars! But looking back at all of our coverage, there was plenty we had no idea about. This is the best stuff we saw at CES 2o17.
If you’ve ever pushed a bike down a hill, you know that two-wheeled vehicles can balance themselves when traveling at higher speeds. It’s when you’re riding slower that balancing gets a little more challenging, unless your motorcycle’s equipped with Honda’s new experimental Riding Assist technology so it automatically…
These are the first full photos of the all-new 2016 Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin, perhaps the first bike to genuinely live up to the adventure motorcycle’s potential. Big dirt bike? Yep, and not much more.
Are you as excited for the 2016 Honda Africa Twin as we are? Real dirt performance in a light, affordable, reliable package. Now, we can see nearly the entire thing in this new patent filing.
I'm willing to bet that in the near future, we will live in a world without mirrors. Yes, it sounds absurd. But hear me out.
Honda had us all weepy-eyed with nostalgia during its first run of holiday ads this year that used our favorite '80s toys to lure us into buying a car. The strategy probably didn't convince every child of the '80s to run out and buy a new ride, but that's ok because it means Honda just keeps churning out more of these…
I'm so glad the latest videos in Honda's bizarre, toy-themed adverts are for good causes, because otherwise... well, these would be just as nightmarishly terrible, but there would be nothing hopeful to feel about after watching them!
Now that the children of the '80s are all grown up and have lots of expendable income, companies have realized that nostalgia can be a great marketing tool. That's why so many toys are being resurrected and re-issued, and why Honda is now selling cars using the likes of Skeletor, Jem, and even Stretch Armstrong as…
This is the all-new 2015 Honda Africa Twin in production form, just covered in dirt and fractalized camo. Why should you care? It just re-invented the adventure motorcycle class with honest-to-god, dirt-focussed performance.
This interactive ad is actually two commercials in one. If you let the video roll, you'll end up with your average car commercial. But if you press R in your keyboard while watching it, you'll see a badass action film. Of course, the combination of the two makes it even cooler. Watch the full ad here.
Here's the world-first review of the 2015 Honda NM4, a bike purposefully styled to resemble Kaneda's from Akira.
It's been almost 15 years since Honda first introduced Asimo, the company's attempt to create a humanoid robot that can walk and perform other human-like tasks. But Asimo's most recent upgrade introduces something unsettling: a pair of dead black eyes and a permanent smirk that leaves the bot looking more like an…
Shopping for your very first motorcycle? Start here. The 2015 Honda CB300F promises to be fun to ride, affordable and incredibly cheap to run. It's the perfect learning tool for new riders.
Screw flying cars—I just want the flying. The first production unit of Honda's first ever airplane has taken to the skies for the first time in Greensboro, North Carolina. This flight is a major milestone towards its certification—and a great excuse to post a gallery of HondaJet F3 porn. The cockpit is great.
Want to be World Champ Marc Marquez? Good news: next year Honda will release a replica of his RC213V race bike that will be as close as possible to the real thing. We've got exclusive details.
Here's the world-first review of the 2014 Honda CB1100 Deluxe. Not because we tried all that hard to scoop it, but because everyone else really is just that lazy.
Next year, Honda will take the wraps off its new, large-capacity adventure motorcycle. Will it be any good? To find out, we talked top-secret details with a company insider.
Honda's humanoid robot, ASIMO, recently celebrated its 14th birthday. The diminutive android has experienced some minor upgrades over the years, but nothing quite like it's latest batch of enhancements. Just watch what ASIMO can do now.
Pound for pound, there's no bit of technology that made me happier last year than the brand new Honda Grom motorcycle. Is it cheating that it's not strictly a gadget? I don't care. Even if the Grom still breaks fast on old-fashioned dino juice, its diminutive size paired with 50-state street legality changed the way I…
