Man, this would be so much fun to have.

I only live a few blocks from the center of downtown, and I'd love to ride this to grab lunch or a few groceries instead of having to drive my car.

This would be so perfect to bring along to the track to scoot from photo spot to photo spot with. Must resist the urge to order one.

I want one so bad but I've blown this year's fun budget already. Maybe next year!

I ordered one today.  I just googled the part number to find one of the online parts places figuring the algorithm would discount it about the same as usual, and it did, so I'm saving 9% even after shipping.   Let's see if it works.

All the local dealers have looked and it says out of stock or not available yet. i am on the fence because a used sondors does so much more then this for me

It was on Motor Trend newsletter today , so now the public knows about them and they will probably be out of stock quick , 

Hopefully Honda has plans to keep building them after this first batch.

I mean, they're neat, but... I was just about to say that a 15mph top speed is kinda silly, "just get a road bike" until I realized that this folds up and looks like it might fit in a Miata trunk. That part is pretty rad. =)

It will easily fit in the rear hatch of an '85 CRX. Not that I've measured it or anything.

I was running around San Francisco last week, and this thing would have been perfect for taking on a ferry or BART and then zipping along to your destination. 

Unfortunately, I do not live in San Francisco (well, not THAT unfortunate, I like where I live more) and all of my justifications for the Motocompacto are transparent and thin. But boy, it would be cool to have one of those in the trunk of the CRX for pit bike duty.
