Honda Wonder Walk Concept, Another Connected E-Scooter?

The fact that Honda has been spearheading the personal transport segment for years is old news, so seeing yet another concept from the house of Tokyo is not exactly surprising. The Honda Wonder Walk was recently introduced at the Tokyo Motor Show, but still, the info in this vehicle is scarce, to say the least.

In the absence of detailed data about the Honda Wonder Walk, we are left with the photos that made it to the surface... and speculate. From what these pics reveal, the Honda Wonder Walk relies on batteries and at least an electric motor, with the negative space under the seat being able to accommodate a laptop backpack or similarly-sized luggage.

One of the nice features of the Honda Wonder Walk is the turning degree of the front wheels. It looks like they can turn 90 degrees, and this gives the Wonder Walk the upper hand in crowded spaces. Riders could turn this scoot around in tight spaces, improving functionality in crowded areas.The windshield/dash is the center of attention
Honda Wonder Walk comes with a generously-sized dashboard that conveys a lot of information and which is most likely the pivotal point of the entire vehicle.

The photos let us see that the dash displays navigation data and also has Phone and Message buttons, suggesting that the Wonder Walk will be paired to the rider's smartphone. We also spotted another interesting take on the direction of evolution in the shape of the wheels.

Honda is using solid rubber wheels instead of classic tires, and the rims are made from a composite honeycomb structure that reduces weight, makes steering easier and also absorbs a part of the shocks.

The fact that the seat can turn 180 degrees could also prove useful at times, but we need more info to understand why the Wonder Walk could have a serious impact on the future of mobility. In our book, there are many other personal transportation projects that look better and are far more interesting, but we are willing to wait to find out more.
