Minimal transportation, with a busy aircooled twin at the back of an all-independently sprung hull. Early ones gutless, but the 499cc 500D cruises at 50-55mph. Gearbox very crash indeed: double declutch both ways. Uprated engine and front-hinged doors from '65 (500F), better equipped 500L added from '68. Too noisy and cramped for long runs.
