Chappy (LB50II)

The Chappy was developed primarily for women in Japan’s cities, featuring small 8-inch tires to make it easier for smaller-framed riders to mount, and a simple-to-use 2-speed automatic transmission. With the addition of a hand-clutch 4-speed model, a centrifugal clutch 3-speed model, and numerous detail modifications to improve user-friendliness, this became a long-selling model as a mini-bike for around-town use that could be ridden by anyone.
