Motorbikes are great. Easy parking. Lane-splitting.
But when it comes to cargo, they’re absolutely worthless.
Lit Motors is flipping that paradigm with their newfangled Kubo scooter — a first-of-breed vehicle with a 22", open-walled cargo hold and a 300-lb. capacity for carting goods and rider from street to hilly street.
It's all-electric, all-eclectic and hella practical.
Unless you're the sort of guy who never rolls with anything bigger than a breadbox.
The trick to the cargo hold is its system of rails and hooks, allowing for just about anything to be secured — plus there's storage under the seat for straps and what have you.
If the name sounds familiar, it's probably on account of Lit Motors' other project — the gyroscopically stabilized C-1.
Add in the city appropriate 45 MPH and 50-mile drive-radius and you've got a legitimate sport utility vehicle.
