Honda Vision Scooter

new 110cc scooter, the Vision is named, because we think have the same vision of the as many of us. With continuingly petrol prices they see more people turning to low scooters for their basic needs.

Indeed that vision is becoming a reality in the UK the Motor Cycle Industry (MCIA ) recently reported in 2011 “there is a growing in the use of bikes for commuting and as the industry’s Get On is taking effect there is an trend in smaller machines lower capacity bikes (up to gaining a 10.4% increase in market share. ‘Scooters’ had a 9.3% increase in their share.”

Honda has an unenviable in producing scooters with famous Super Cub scooters sold over 60 million world-wide since 1958.

since the 1950’s scooter has moved on somewhat and Honda’s new scooter exploits the latest advancements to claim an amazing economy figure of 140 MPG (50.2km/l) it’s air cooled 110cc … engine.

This engine has Honda’s fuel injection and electric and to bring the scooter to a controlled is fitted with Honda’s Braking System (CBS), links both the front and brakes.

Under seat

Scooters are very much practicality as well as fun and Honda endowed this scooter fairly generous under-seat space with the addition of holders on both sides of the compartment, to allow for the storage to be used solely for luggage or

In addition in the front leg shield two open compartments which can be for holding drink bottles.

We got the to test Honda’s new scooter a 160 mile round trip A roads, dual carriageways, B and it’s natural environment roads and were therefore to test the scooter in a wide of circumstances.

Firstly the scooter has a surprising of rider leg room, our road is in fact 6ft 3” tall and was to sit aboard this scooter room to spare, thanks to its inner floor and fairly wheelbase (1255mm).

The suspension consists of telescopic forks hydraulic damping and a compact damper at the rear provides for the part a smooth ride, but we did the set up a little on the firm side. this did benefit the handling proved to be light and very Nipping in out of town traffic a delight and safe filtering town centre traffic was easy.

For the most part the seat offered spacious but we found the padding a little towards the end of our 160 mile trip, but as the will in the main be used for distance journeys the seat is than sufficient.

The Vision only weighs kg (kerb weight) and therefore be very easy for riders and old to handle. We found its lightweight considerably in its low speed manoeuvrability and the with which it can be lifted on and off the stand. For added convenience the also has side stand was even easier to use when up.

In town the performance can best be as nippy and therefore it makes commuter transport. On the open the scooters top speed lies between 50 to 60mph depending on conditions, head wind and weight. As such in most the scooter can keep pace traffic on A, B C roads, it may however be a lacking on faster roads.

The produces 5.97kW of power but the and go fully automatic transmission the best use of the available power in circumstances.

This scooter is much about ease of use and the twist and go throttle and the combined make riding the scooter which will obviously novice riders. We found the nicely progressive rather overly sharp (as on many scooters) reducing the likelyhood of an rider overbraking.

Honda Vision instrumentation

is basic but clear, the analogue being easy to read and the gauge a useful addition.

the Honda Vision

Whilst designed for commuting the Vision is well able to undertake journeys as we found on our 160 mile trip to the seaside at Skegness and opens up the possibility of using the for pleasure and fun trips and not just With its 5.5 litre tank 150 plus range is available fill ups and therefore touring can be covered.

The scooter is fitted an rear rack, so you could strap an overnight bag to the rack.

Low cost of ownership we think be of paramount importance for the target for this scooter and with an on the price of just £1800, we the Vision scooter will be a proposition. We achieved a real fuel economy figure of but we rode the scooter hard all day on we feel Honda’s claimed of 140mpg will be a more figure for daily commuting.

A is required every 2,500 but this is only for 1 hours plus materials; so overall the should be very cheap to especially when it’s by Honda’s legendary build

Honda supply an extensive of additional accessories for the Vision to enhance its practicality and use these an alarm kit, a U-lock, top top box inner bag, high knuckle visor set and scooter The scooter will be available in a of colours which include Procyon Black, Boss Metallic, Pearl White, Lucid Red and Candy Aluja

Honda clearly hopes will have the vision to buy new scooter and for those that do it for an appealing and cost effective solution.
