First there was Sumo, the Japanese sport of heavyweight wrestling. Now, a much lighter and faster motorcycle called SUMO has entered the ring. The Sumo scooter version to be sold $2100!

    While none of us probably plan on trading in our v twins on one of these any time soon I can guarantee you that when the cost of fuel goes back up we will start seeing more and more of this type of vehicle on the road. I hate it but the damn ugly thing just makes sense for normal daily transportation.

    Once again… It appears Japan has beat us to the punch…

    That actually has a pretty good range and top speed! Now if they could just bundle it all up in a nice looking Cruiser/Chopper style I’d be happy.

    Wow that is so awesome… i ride a mountain bicyle to which i mounted a Japanese made weed eater 4 stroke gas engine, and get 150 mpg… i will definitely start saving up to purchase 1 of those beautiful magnetic machines… Imagine how fast it would go if the front wheel also had a motor intergrated into it? About 200 MPH?
