Okay, hold on to your hats here, since this is complicated, and I haven't got an inclination what this is about. It gets confounded by legal-speak used in the filed patent by Honda Open link in a new window.

Let me illustrate with the opening statement in the patent filed on the 22nd of September 2011.

Let's see if you can read this and understand in one go. I dare you......:

A system for performing posture control of a motorcycle is such that in outputting a synthesized output by adjusting a yaw direction output and a roll direction output outputted from a displacement detection sensor by an adjustment part respectively, a synthesized output in which the yaw direction output is larger than the roll direction output is outputted when a vehicle speed is low, and a synthesized output in which the roll direction output is larger than the yaw direction output is outputted when the vehicle speed is high.

There. Did that make sense to you?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the patent is for a device that will adjust the yaw & roll of your motorcycle, both at low and high speed. In other words, it's a computer system that will check the motorcycle's "posture", i.e. position in a curve, and depending on your speed and angle, will adjust itself.

Honda Posture Control Patent

I guess it might be awesome on a Gold Wing, which is used in the patents' illustration, but I don't think you'll see it in MotoGP bikes.

So between traction control, ABS and now "posture control", is there any need for the biker? Or can we do without?

Maybe motorcycle riding lawyers should read it.
