Abstract

Since the two-wheel electric motorcycle has good portability and flexibility, it is popular in many countries nowadays. However, keeping the motorcycles balanced, which is a valuable research in an accelerating ageing society, has not been thoroughly researched. In this paper, a novel self-balancing electric motorcycle without the handlebar is put forward to cover this deficiency. By controlling the steering, the balance of the motorcycle can be kept with its wheels swaying. And the motorcycle direction can be operated by human body. Also, three different steering phases of handleless motorcycles were discussed. The difference of these three modes were showed by preliminary experimental results.
