SCOOT PACKS A SUITCASE
APART from its old-style mini camper, (see page 2), Suzuki will also take its new Hustler Scoot to the Tokyo Motor Show.
Suzuki clearly likes the Hustler name, as it has named a 790 kg mini sport ute thus and also the T20 247 cc, two-stroke motorcycle from the sixties.
The latest Hustler Scoot pays tribute to the original bike and the ute, coming as it does with luggage compartments that can even store a tennis racket, while the under-seat luggage area is turned into a slide-out suitcase that can also sit between the rider’s feet.
A rear carrier and panniers have hooks and space for more luggage. Power for the moped comes from a 49 cc air-cooled thumper, which will be good for low-down torque in slow city traffic, but not so much on highways. A paint scheme inspired by comic strips completes the offering.
Suzuki’s Hustler Scoot concept pays tribute to two great transporters from the company’s past.
