Hero's Diesel Scooter

Did you see the new diesel scooter that Hero (in India) is coming out with?  From Car and Driver:

"Hero’s Amazing AWD Diesel Two-Wheeler Is Vehicular Nerdery—and Unstoppable Scootering—Incarnate" by Clifford Atiyeh 

Why am I posting this, you ask?  Well, it is an interesting scooter.  Diesel for lots of torque, and an electrically driven front wheel.  Can be used as a generator, if needed.  Very practical.

But more importantly, if you've ever been to a third world country, you know how people often can't afford cars.  So they'll have a scooter or a small motorcycle, and they'll carry an outrageous amount of stuff, maybe even the whole family.

And that's why the first (as I write this) comment is priceless, made me laugh out loud:
Typical cramped third row seating.
Nailed it, absolutely nailed it.  Hilarious!
