AMONG Yamaha’s concepts set to appear at the Tokyo Motor Show at the end of October is a motorcycle-riding robot, presumably to save us from the drudgery of doing the job ourselves. 

Because that's what we all want, right? Along with robots to drink our beer, eat our Sunday roast and make love to our spouses. 

No, we don’t understand either. Self-driving cars, we get. Self-riding bikes are harder to get a handle on.

Yamaha says it will display 'an autonomous motorcycle-riding humanoid robot that combines motorcycle and robotics technologies'.

There’s no official information, but the firm has also trademarked the name ‘MotoBot' recently.

Just so you know, Yamaha, we're out.
