There's a three-wheeled newcomer on the streets of O'ahu — the Mini Coupe — although it's actually a two-seater moped.

Mini Coupe Hawaii sales manager Jacob Wankasky said the company started renting the brightly colored little vehicles in February from a fleet of 31 based at the Hawaiian Monarch Hotel on Waikiki's Niu Street.

He said the company bought the coupes from a previous owner who had purchased them three years ago but needed to get legal approval for the three-wheeled two-seaters. Wankasky said that came through last year.

Despite a current downturn in tourism throughout the state, Wankasky said business is picking up a little more each week, especially on sunny summer days.
