Scooters never quite caught on in the US like they did in many other parts of the world, but perhaps Honda’s latest offering this month could change that. Well, if the company planned to introduce this electric scooter here. This is the Wuyang-Honda U Be. It costs about $475, can go up to 50 miles on a charge and provides a fully seated position for riders to stay comfy in.
Right now, the joint venture company is only focused on Chinese sales, so don’t expect Honda Powersports to start stocking U Be scooters. However, with a price like this and what looks like a very tidy little package, it might be a surprise hit in various parts of the US where owning a car, frankly, sucks.
