What I like about this design is that the rider's legs reach the ground (good for balancing.)
And the rider can maintain eye-level height with other pedestrians.

Here's a video of the same -

Tough I highly appreciate Honda has a leader in robotics and engineering this rider doesn't look this comfortable, i bet after few minutes your back begins to ache it doesn't support your back and the seat looks pretty small. Other components looks pretty great.

I don't see why the back should ache. riding this robot is just like riding a regular two-wheeler.
