One of my friends has a scooter. I happened to catch up to him at a light when I was in my Prelude. I revved my engine and he laughed.

One time I was with him and I commented that it looked like a guy went by on a motorcycle, but it sounded like a scooter. He said that more and more scooters were designed to look like motorcycles to be more "macho."

The best of both worlds?

Looking more macho than a Prius while providing better fuel-economy. That makes a lot of sense environmentally-wise. I may tell you I consider motorcycles and scooters the most reasonable vehicles regarding this aspect, since they require less replacement parts, lube oils, friction material for brakes and clutch, tyres, and also generate a smaller pressure over the soil.

No. Actually flame paint jobs in a modern vehicle look dumb.
