Fuji Rabbit - a scooter manufactured by the Japanese company Fuji Heavy Industries in 1946 - 1968 (a total of 637,487 units were produced).
In June 1946, the production of the first model, the S-1 with a 135 cc engine, began at the Otakita plant (Ota, Gumma Prefecture).
Fuji Rabbit, the first scooter manufactured in Japan, achieved some commercial success and revolutionized the local post-war automotive industry.
In the course of further upgrades, having received an electric starter, an automatic transmission and a pneumatic suspension system, he became one of the most technologically advanced models of motor vehicles of his era, as well as the first Japanese-made scooter capable of speeds above 95 km / h.
In May 1948, Fuji Rabbit and its main rival, Silver Pigeon from Mitsubishi, were presented to the Emperor of Japan.
In 1954, a new competitor appeared, the Honda Juno.
With the growth of the Japanese economy, the demand for scooters has declined in favor of more convenient 4-wheeled vehicles, compact and small cars. Fuji (already reorganized at that time in Subaru) switched to their production in 1958, releasing the P1 and Subaru 360 models.
The last Fuji scooter rolled off the assembly line on June 29, 1968.
