Mein Auto: A nice car
I don't think the production C series come with roof or seat belt, at least not from what I can see so far.

Found some close-up photos of the real thing, looks like in Japan:

I believe these are pretty popular in Europe or Asia where two wheeled vehicles are commonly used for urban transportation; I saw a bunch in Paris. Their automatic transmission makes them convenient to handle the stop-and-go city traffic; they are also lighter and easier to maneuver around the narrow streets. When you need to take them on a highway speed cruising, the big engine is also quite capable. I have always been a "real motorcycle" kind of guy (current have a crotch rocket and a R1200R), but I still find these maxi scooters quite versatile.
