The Honda Kick ‘N’ Go scooter was a scooter produced during the mid 1970s by the Honda Motor Company in the United States.

Background

The Kick ‘N’ Go range of scooters were sold exclusively through Honda car dealerships across the United States. They proved successful until 1976, when two children were tragically killed in an accident whilst riding them. A safety committee decided that the scooters were too powerful to be controlled by children, and they were discontinued. Several thousand existing scooters were also recalled by Honda.

Go scooters
There were three different types of Kick ‘N’ Go scooter released by Honda. These were:

  • The Kick-N-Go – released in 1974, the three-wheeled version was intended for younger children weighing less than 135 pounds
  • The Kick-N-Go 2 – released in 1976, the larger two-wheeled version was intended for older children and adults
  • The Kick 'N Go Senior – released in 1976, this was an larger version of the original three-wheeled model aimed at older children and adults.

All three of the models featured the same mechanism, by which the scooters were powered by kicking a pedal which in turn pulled a chain attached to the rear wheel.
Each model was available in the colours red, silver, yellow and blue.

How much are Honda Kick ‘N’ Go scooters worth?

Vintage Kick ‘N’ Go can be popular with specialist collectors and buyers who restore old scooters to be ridden. Working models can sell on auction sites such as eBay for between $50 and $150 depending on their colour and condition.
