A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11884353B2) discloses a unique steering assembly for a vehicle. The assembly includes a track pivotable about a steering axis, a slider connected to the track, a handlebar connected to the slider, a lock actuator, and a rocker. The rocker is pivotable about a rocking axis in response to movement of the lock actuator, allowing the handlebar, slider, lock actuator, and rocker to pivot about the steering axis. In the locked position, the rocker presses the slider against the track, securing the position of the handlebar relative to the track.

Furthermore, the patent details various configurations and features of the steering assembly, such as complementary angled surfaces on the track and slider pressed together by the rocker in the locked position, a lever actuator for locking and unlocking the assembly, and the integration of a seat and instrument display within the assembly. The patent also extends to a vehicle incorporating this steering assembly, with the handlebar positioned forward of a straddle seat and connected to steerable components like wheels for steering the vehicle. Additional features include a frame, rear wheels, and a motor connected to the frame, highlighting the comprehensive design and functionality of the patented steering assembly in the context of a vehicle.
