Volkswagen has trotted out a new electric bike to compliment one’s sense of how far one can drive past the “Empty” marking on the gas gauge. Honda had a similar concept back in the 1980s, to go along with their compact cars, called the Motocompo. The VW options seems like a nice design with single sided front suspension, as airplane designers intended. (Someone, please, tell me his wikipedia entry has some errors.)

Can’t talk about the Honda City/Motocompo without posting this!
The idea was you got the Motocompo instead of a spare tire. I guess, to ride to an auto parts store so you could pick up a can of Fix-a-Flat®.
During my SCCA club racing days I knew a guy who had a Motocompo. He was rather tall, and had to scrunch himself up to ride it. Sadly, I never got a picture…
