Honda has revealed the Honda U-BE, an ultra-affordable and lightweight electric scooter that weighs just 54kg and costs $477. It is one of the cheapest electric two-wheelers on the market. 

The Honda U-BE was conceived and constructed with a basic design and a detachable battery just weeks after the firm revealed the U-GO electric scooter. Unlike the more expensive U-GO, the U-BE does not have a passenger compartment. It is relatively easy to move due to its small weight.  

The Honda U-BE electric scooter features LED illumination and an LCD display that displays information like speed, mileage, and battery percentage.

Wuyang Honda, the Chinese subsidiary of Japanese manufacturer Honda, unveiled U-BE as part of the company’s strategy to establish a firm presence in a fast-developing market. There are also plans to increase the production of these models in order to export them to the United States and Europe.  

 The 350 W geared motor on the U-BE allows for a top speed of 25 km/h. As envisioned by Honda, the device’s low price and capacity to transport its owner to any location in the city should make it immensely popular. The Honda U-BE comes with three battery options that provide a range of 55 to 80 kilometers.  

However, in a bid to ensure an increase in the production of the new lightweight electric scooter Honda, the company plans to export the novelty in the products to the United States of America and other countries in Europe.  

Honda hopes that a segment of the population will embrace the very affordable eScooter, which is even cheaper than some mid-range and flagship smartphone models. Its price and ability to take its owner to all parts of the city is the key design objective, and Honda hopes that a segment of the demography will embrace the very affordable eScooter, which is even far cheaper than some mid-range and flagship smartphone models.
