BMW Motorrad has revealed a self-driving motorbike that can ride and park itself without the need of a rider.

The self-driving version of the R1200GS bike is powered by intelligent software that enables it to start its own engine, speed up and come to a complete stop.

Not built for consumers

The motorcycle can be started remotely, accelerates and handles corners on a race track before bringing itself to a stop.
