In less than 24 hours I’m off to shoot a video review of The Auto Moto. It’s a 3 wheeled scooter that uses a 4 stroke carbon copied GY6 Honda engine. What makes the Auto Moto truly unique is its 3 wheel build: 2 in the back and 1 in the front. Thanks to the ‘rocker’ system, the 2 rear wheels stay firmly planted on the ground while the vehicle’s entire cab can independently tilt left and right providing a motorcycle like experience. Top speed on the 150cc Automoto is about 6o mph, but unlike most scooters you’ve got an entire cab (sans door) over your head in addition to a full windscreen with a single wiper blade. Other notable features of the Auto Moto include a storage chest that can hold at least a few bags of groceries, room for two, full stereo system, auto CVT transmission, front disc break, rear drum break (via pedal), conversion kits (TBD) and a variety of color options.
The Auto Moto should be hitting dealers in the next 45 days and will carry a price tag of about $3800. Course, that’s nothing when you consider the gas savings you’ll get with 83 miles per gallon.
