PhotobucketThe Honda Motocompo is a tiny folding scooter sold by Honda 1981-1983. The Motocompo was introduced as a "Trunk Bike" to fit inside subcompact cars like the Honda Today and the then new Honda City. The City's baggage compartment was actually developed around the Motocompo. The handlebars, seat, and foot-pegs fold into the scooter's rectangular plastic body to present a clean, box-shaped package of 1185 mm L × 240 mm W x 540 mm H. Honda's initial monthly sales projection for the domestic market was 8,000 City and 10,000 Motocompo. The City surpassed its targets, but in all only 53,369 Motocompos were sold by the end of production in 1983 (no more than 3,000 per month). - Wikipedia


PhotobucketO Honda Motocompo é um scooter dobrável fabricado pela montadora japonesa Honda entre os anos de 1981 e 1983. O Motocompo foi planejado para caber dentro de carros compactos da marca japonesa, como o Honda Today e o então novo Honda City. O porta-malas do Honda City foi desenvolvido especialmente para oMotocompo. A projeção de vendas mensais do Honda City era de 8.000 unidades e do Motocompo de 10.000. O Honda City alcançou sua meta, mas o mesmo não aconteceu com o Motocompo, que nos seus três curtos anos de fabricação vendeu apenas 53.369 unidades (uma média de três mil unidades por mês). - Wikipedia
