1991 Honda Beat (PP1-100)
Funky JDM Kei-Car
with revvy, revvy rear-engine 650cc motor, quirky interior and diminutive size
from 5 year ownership
Dating from 1991 and
imported to the UK in June 1999 this diminutive JDM spec Kei-car was among the
last cars to be sanctioned by Soichiro Honda before he died in ’91. Powered by a
rear mounted 656cc 3-cylinder engine it does not use a turbocharger like the
Cappuccino also in the sale, a similar sort of Kei car, instead it used
individual throttle bodies on each of the 3-cylinders and MTREC (multi throttle
engine responsive control) system which meant it generated 63bhp driving the
rear wheels via manual transmission.
This first generation PP1-100 Beat

versions) and they are a rare sight here with a devoted fan club so we expect
this little yellow example to be popular. Off the road as a result of a deceased
estate since 2016 when it was MOT’d with 108,561Km recorded, it has just been
MOT’d again in July this year showing 108,836Km with no advisories recorded
showing how little the use the car has had in the last 5 years.
and running well considering its time off the road, the car would no doubt
benefit from a thorough service and check over before doing any serious mileage.
The car’s interior, jazzy with its Zebra print seats, funky dash and skinny
dimensions looks like an absolute hoot.
The history file includes only
the V5C showing just 2 former keepers (since import in ’99) to the current of 5
