From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The Honda CT110 is a small motorcycle manufactured by Honda from 1980 to the present day and sold in various parts of the world. Perhaps one of Honda’s hidden success stories, this bike has sold well worldwide and has a faithful following to this day.

The CT110 in its classic form is a 105cc 4-stroke air-cooled single with a four-speed transmission and an automatic clutch, coupled with a roughly 2:1 ratio gear reduction box known as the dual range subtransmission which switched into operation using a small lever under the transmission case and allowed the CT to climb steep slopes with no difficulty. The cylinder was nearly horizontal in the step-through tube/stamping frame.

The CT110 started production in 1980, replacing the Honda CT90. which was essentially the same machine.

In the United States the 1980, CT110 lacked the dual range sub-transmission, however, it returned in following years, and it was imported from 1980 to 1986. It is still in production and sold in other countries around the world, most notably Australia and New Zealand .

The CT110 is called a Postie Bike in Australia and New Zealand due to their use by Australia Post and New Zealand Post as a delivery bike, without the dual range subtransmission. In Australia this also makes them the highest selling motorcycle in the country. A slightly modified version, the CT110 AG, is sold for agricultural use. This version is not road-registerable in Australia. however, is road-registerable in New Zealand.

The AG version has a dual range subtransmission.


CT-110s are well regarded for their extreme reliability, economy and ease of operation. The clutchless four speed transmission (centrifugal clutch) does not require a clutch lever. In Australia and New Zealand the freeing of the left hand of the rider – makes mail delivery easier for Post workers.

United States

The CT series were originally designed for the outdoors person for trail riding fun. Most CT’s, except the 1980, CT110, had the dual range subtransmission (or on the very early CT90’s which had a large overlay rear sprocket) and could go easily with a novice on the seat, where only very experienced riders on other motorcycles could go.

Many improvements to the CT series were made over the years, culminating in the CT110. Even though the CT110 was last imported into the United States in 1986, there are many used CT110’s available for purchase. Some Baby Boomers had a Honda CT in their youth and a resurgence in popularity is evidenced by retirees desiring to re-live those good times on a Honda CT.

Prices of used CT110’s have steadily climbed due to this resurgence in popularity.

There are plenty of stories today of people finding CT’s in barns and garages, after going neglected for many years, returning the CT back to operation with just a little effort due to the bike’s rugged and enduring construction. New and used parts are still widely available in Honda’s dealer network.
