true. but, there are many products that have been named with the intention of conveying something about that product's functionality. i was thinking specifically of some of panasonic's other folding bikes like, the Transit- a commuting bike, the Springbok- a fast and nimble folding road bike; and the Traincle - (clunky japenglish conjunction of train + bicycle) a multi-modal commute bike.
IMHO names of products mean very little. What am I to expect from my KHS Mocha, from a Cannondale Hooligan, from a Surly Pugsley? They're usually just names to evoke an emotional response and have little to do with the actual functionality of the product. Here's another Rodeo... I should have known it's a trick car.
