Produced by Suzuki from 2003-2007, The Choinori was designed to be a short distance scooter for commuting and running errands. The name "choinori" is derived from "tohnori" the Japanese term for a long-distance touring motorcycle. "Toh nori" means "long ride", "choi nori" is the opposite, meaning "short ride", or "short hop".
The Choinori was designed to minimize the use of materials, especially plastic parts and nuts and bolts. A new 49 cc pushrod OHV engine was designed for the Choinori. The aluminium engine had a linerless bore that was plated by a newly developed high-speed plating process, reducing both cost and weight. Another feature to reduce cost and weight was the lack of a rear suspension, with the rear axle being bolted directly to the frame. The minimalist design allowed the Choinori to be sold at an extremely low price compared to other scooters of the time.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase a new, never-started first year Choinori. This example has never had fuel in the tank and still has the owners manual taped to the handlebars.
Price excludes any government fees and tax, title, license fees for TX buyers.
