The conceptual Honda Prosthetic Arm has been created as a solution for professional motorcyclists that will provide them with essential support to maximize riding capabilities. Fitting seamlessly overtop of the rider's shoulder, the prosthetic is designed to plug directly into the handlebar on a motorcycle and will also send commands to the bike as it's driven. This enables acceleration, deceleration and even braking without the need for the rider to utilize a hand or palm to do so.

The conceptual Honda Prosthetic Arm is the design work of Tom Hylton who explained the functionality further saying, "The bike and the prosthetic communicate with each other and the rider to calculate appropriate lean angles and aid body positioning, it will also eject with the rider in the event of an accident. It Is modular to suit trans-humeral and trans-radial amputees and I’m currently designing a leg to go with."
