Honda Revives Retro Scooter with Modern Design: Meet the Motocompacto

Honda Introduces the Motocompacto, an Electric Scooter Inspired by the MotoCompo from the 1980s, Featuring a Compact and Foldable Design.

While the Motocompacto is not intended for long journeys, Honda describes it as a “fun-to-ride ‘first and last mile’ solution” suitable for neighborhood travel. It features a 490W electric motor with a top speed of 15 mph and a maximum range of up to 12 miles. The scooter can accelerate to 15 mph in just seven seconds, making it ideal for quick point-to-point trips.

One potential drawback of Honda’s scooter is its charging time, which takes 3.5 hours to reach a full charge. However, when compared to other e-scooters like the NIO KQi3 Pro with a six-hour charge time, the Motocompacto’s three-hour charging period appears relatively reasonable. Additionally, the scooter comes with a standard 110v plug, compatible with the common three-pronged input found in most American households.
