    Honda has taken the wraps off the SC e: electric scooter concept at the ongoing Japan Mobility Show (also referred to as the Tokyo Motor Show).

    The SC e: concept looks similiar to the EM 1e: e-scooter that's on sale in Europe. However, it looks to be a size bigger than the EM 1e:. Honda states that the SC e: concept features two removable battery packs with a capacity of ‘approximately 1.3kWh’ each. This means that the SC e: concept has a total capacity in the ballpark of 2.6kWh.

    No further mechanical details have been revealed, but we can see that the SC e: gets basic underpinnings such as a telescopic fork/monoshock and a disc brake/drum brake setup. Wheels at both ends appear to be of the same size, presumably 12-inch units. 

    There has been no indication of the SC e: concept spawning a series production model, but Honda states in its press release that it ‘will begin pursuing carbon neutrality of motorcycles starting from the commuter category’.

    For e scooters battery needs to be replaced in 5 years time costing about 80 K rupees making it financially unviable.
