  1. I think the title in this piece is deceptive. This vehicle does NOT combine the best elements of the 2 catgories. Instead it focuse on the WORST ones. First, it's dead slow, housing a Transalp engine. Secondly, it has no storage space. Third, it grounds the floorboards so easily, it's insance. So, it's not nearly as practical as a scooter, and not at all sporty. Plus, it puts the rider on a bad stance, killing his back after a while.
