Feb. 24, 2021—Honda is toying with the idea of putting a drone in the tail of an electric motorcycle. 

The tail box, which normally serves as a rack or shelf, would open to reveal a quadcopter, because why not?

According to Electrek, the drone would be capable of navigating and returning to the motorcycle on its own, meaning drivers can focus on, well, driving. 

Honda offered a few explanations, like a drone that could be used to carry swappable batteries back and forth, and even a potential traffic-scouting drone. Electrek's take? "This is silly."
