Honda Recordsdata Trademark for Motocompacto
Honda has filed a trademark utility for “Motocompacto” with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Workplace. If that title sounds acquainted, it’s most likely as a result of it’s near “MotcCompo,” the title of Honda’s suitcase-sized fold-up scooter.
The unique Honda Motocompo was solely bought from 1981 to 1983, with solely about 54,000 ever produced. Regardless of its restricted run, the Motocompo gained a cult-like standing as a result of its distinctive design and idea. Designed to be saved within the trunk of a automotive, the Motocompo transforms from a compact type into a completely functioning scooter.
Honda’s been on a little bit of a retro minibike kick of late, producing a brand new Monkey and a Tremendous Cub C125. So, why not a contemporary Motocompo suitcase scooter?
Not like the gas-powered Tremendous Cub and Monkey, it seems just like the Motocompacto will probably be electrical, as the brand new trademark utility lists the supposed use as being for “land automobiles, specifically, electrical scooters.”
Honda has toyed with the concept of an electrical Motocompo earlier than, revealing its Motor Compo idea on the 2011 Tokyo Motor Present.

One function it would share with the idea is the usage of a detachable battery. Honda affords an electrical model of the PCX scooter in Japan that makes use of two energy packs that may be eliminated for recharging or to be swapped for absolutely charged packs.
