I came across these weird machines last weekend in Stratford on Avon, Englandshire.
They are based off of one of the big scooters and have a fibreglass body shell and seats for two people. The idea is that you hire one to tour around the city and do a bit of sightseeing. I believe that an audio soundtrack is available to listen to while you cruise along.
Personally, I think that I’d rather walk than brave the traffic in an unfamiliar city while trying to pilot one of these contraptions.
They must really hate tourists!
