  1. Introduction

Honda’s Forza 125 was designed specifically for discerning European customers who demand the very most out of their scooter in every respect. And right from its introduction in 2015 it has met and exceeded all expectations, evolving year on year in response to owner feedback, and selling over 80,000 units to date.

Straight out of the crate the Forza 125 hit the ground rolling, proving an instant sales hit thanks to its comprehensive mix of sporty and ‘GT’ elements wrapped up in a distinctive design package. A lively new four valve version of Honda’s eSP  (‘enhanced Smart Power’) engine, compact dimensions, sports-oriented attitude and handling ability provided traffic-busting agility around town, while its sit-in comfort, wind protection and strong top end power made easy work of longer-range highway commuting. Add in plenty of storage, premium features front to back, a new sharp-edged design aesthetic and Honda build quality, and the reasons for its immediate popularity are clear.

Fittingly, it’s never stood still, either. In 18YM – maintaining a steep development curve – the Forza 125 received a complete, sporty re-style and rider-focused upgrades that included full LED lighting and electric screen. 21YM saw the addition of enhanced desirability and practical functionality.

 

  1. Model Overview

For 21YM, cosmetic updates were applied to the front and side fairings, mirrors, rear side panels and engine covers to refresh the Forza 125’s styling, creating a sleeker overall look, and improving aerodynamics. The re-shaped electric screen adjusted with an extra 40mm travel to maximise wind protection. And a USB socket replaced the ACC charger.

The chassis remained unchanged, but the four-valve water-cooled SOHC engine received Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) to maintain rear tyre grip. It also gained EURO5 compliance.

For 22YM, two striking new colour options add further desirability and style.

 

  1. Key Features

 3.1 Styling & Equipment

  • Electric screen adjusts through 180mm,
  • Room for two full-face helmets under the seat; new USB charging socket
  • Smart Key operation of ignition and (optional) 45-litre top box
  • Emergency stop signal function (ESS) warns other road users of sudden braking

The Forza 125’s lines flow back from its electric screen (controlled by a switch on the left handlebar) which adjusts through 180mm. It’s designed to provide wind protection, with airflow directed around and over the rider’s head, and reduce wind noise.

Stability and comfort at higher speeds – and long distances – can be instantly exchanged for a greater sense of freedom around town, by lowering the screen. For comfort at higher speeds a larger front air duct manages negative pressure in front of the rider, reducing the natural effect of the wind pushing the rider back.

Sculpted for both style and aerodynamic efficiency, the Forza 125’s sharp design lines give a clean, smooth modernity, creating an impression of energetic sportiness and premium desirability. The styling team’s key words of ‘aggressive, technical and powerful’ find expression in a new spoiler-type surround below the headlight, refreshed fairing side panels with a distinctive ‘Z’ design line, and a steeply descending character line for the rear side panels that create a forward-looking, purposeful aesthetic.

Handlebar width remains 750mm as does mirror height of 1125mm, the perfect dimensions for slipping through congested city streets. Seat height is also unchanged at 780mm; there’s plenty of room for two and the riding position cups the rider securely. All lighting is LED.

Two full-face helmets can be stored under the seat, and it’s also possible to partition the storage area to house a helmet and/or rain gear and A4-sized bags. The front left inner fairing pocket is lockable and its internal space can be arranged for the rider’s convenience to hold a phone and water bottle, for instance. A USB socket replaces the ACC 12V charging point.

The Forza 125’s Smart Key – as well as controlling the main ignition switch knob and compartment locking – also manages the optional 45L Smart top box. With the Smart Key in the rider’s pocket the box is unlocked, and automatically locks when the rider walks away. It can also be locked from the key. To maintain the internal volume of the box the actuator mechanism is located in the rear body of the machine.

Instruments present analogue speedometer and rev-counter (with redesigned dials) flanking a digital display that can switch between 3 modes: 1) odometer, range remaining and current mpg, 2) trip meter, average mpg and timer and 3) ambient temperature thermometer and battery sensor.

 

3.2 Engine

  • 125cc engine puts out 11kW peak power with 12.2Nm torque
  • The engine features Honda’s eSP technologies, plus Idling Stop
  • 7km/l gives range of nearly 500km between fill-ups
  • Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) increases rider confidence

 The Forza 125’s enhanced Smart Power (eSP) four-valve, water-cooled SOHC powerplant delivers 11kW@ 8,750rpm, with peak torque of 12.2Nm @ 6,500rpm. Bore and stroke is set at 53.5 x 55.5mm with compression ratio of 11.5:1.

From a standing start the Forza 125 accelerates rapidly (0-200m is covered in just 13.3s) while sharp mid-range makes for responsive roll-on performance in the typical 40-60km/h around-town speed range. It will cruise happily around 90km/h and V-max is 108km/h.

Honda’s eSP low-friction technologies are found throughout the engine. A compact combustion chamber and PGM-FI fuel injection – fed by 4.7-litre airbox and 26mm diameter inlet duct – optimise combustion velocity and cooling performance. Clever packaging of items like the oil pump (which is built in to the crankcase) help to further heighten the efficiency.

An offset cylinder reduces friction caused by contact between piston and bore, efficiently transmitting combustion energy to the crankshaft. A ‘spiny’ cast-iron sleeve – with tiny surface extensions – keeps in check any distortion of the inner bore diameter. This design lowers tension in the piston ring, reducing friction.

A high-efficiency radiator – integrated into the exterior of the right-side crankcase – employs a small, light fan that reduces frictional losses and lowers drag. Rolling resistance within the transmission unit is reduced by the use of three low-friction main bearings, all designed to deal with the loads they individually receive. The drive pulley features a fin design that lowers air resistance and the follower pulley reduces pressure on the drive belt, cutting transmission losses.

The electronically controlled, brushless ACG starter is an integrated component mounted directly on the end of the crankshaft, serving as starter motor and alternator. It spins the engine directly, eliminating any noise from gear engagement or meshing. The redesigned engine cover and swingarm for 21YM, complement the new bodywork.

Idling Stop automatically stops the engine running after three seconds at idle when the Forza is stationary and the brakes applied, and re-starts it instantly when the throttle grip is twisted. It’s seamless in use thanks to ACG and the swing-back system that returns the crank to its position before air intake, and a decompression mechanism that negates cranking resistance from compression. It has the functionality to ‘read’ the battery charge and turns itself off to avoid excessive drain. The battery is a long-life YTZ8V unit.

One of the original aims of the Forza 125 is that the trip to the fuel station should happen just once a week for the average user, and a near 500km tank range is possible thanks to the engine’s fuel efficiency of approximately 42.7km/l (WMTC mode) and 11.5-litre tank.

The engine is homologated for EURO5, which from January 1st 2020 introduced significantly stricter engine emissions standards compared to EURO4. These requirements include substantial reductions in permitted carbon monoxide emissions, an over 40% decrease in total hydrocarbon emissions, tougher misfire detection and the introduction of a particulate matter limit.

An additional technology to boost rider confidence in wet conditions is the inclusion of Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), which works in the background to deftly manage rear wheel traction. A ‘T’ indicator flickers on the dash when HSTC is actively reducing wheelspin, and the system can be turned off completely.

 

3.3 Chassis

  • Steel frame, 33mm telescopic forks and preload adjustable twin shocks
  • Wet weight of just 161kg aids agility and ease of use
  • Cast aluminium wheels, front and rear disc brakes, ABS fitted as standard

Unchanged for the 22YM year model, the tubular steel frame that underpins the Forza 125’s chassis provides the necessary rigidity and strength for the broad variety of riding conditions it will face. Sturdy 33mm telescopic forks are matched by twin rear shock absorbers – adjustable through 7-stage spring preload – working through a 1-piece aluminium swingarm.

The Forza 125’s light weight, just 161kg, makes it easy to manage at walking speeds, and easy to park. A wheelbase of 1,505mm provides stability; the steering geometry – 26.5° rake and 89mm trail – delivers nimble steering.

The cast aluminium 15-inch front wheel is fitted with a 120/70-15 tyre while the 14-inch rear wears a 140/70-14 tyre, offering maximum traction and ride comfort. A large 256mm single disc performs stopping duties up front, mated to a 240mm rear, with the benefit of ABS for extra braking control on slippery surfaces.

 

  1. Accessories

A range of Genuine Honda Accessories are available for the Forza 125. They include:

  • 45-litre Smart top box
  • 35-litre top box
  • Rear carrier rack (direct fitment)
  • Inner bags

  1. Introduction

The Forza name has long been a powerful force in Honda’s two-wheeled line-up. Its history as a premium, mid-size scooter goes back to the year 2000: the first model set the template, delivering a lively ride, plenty of storage room and an innovative combined braking system. It was well received throughout Europe, where owners found its multi-role capability useful in every aspect of daily life.

While retaining its trademark mix of sporty and GT character, the Forza 300 has constantly evolved, aiming to exceed owners’ expectations with every upgrade. In 04YM it gained Honda’s S MATIC electronically controlled CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), a theft-deterring Smart key, highly efficient PGM-FI fuel injection for the engine and space for two full-face helmets under the seat.

05YM saw the addition of ABS brakes and, in 08YM, luxurious touches like an audio package and speakers plus upgraded S MATIC (with phased auto shift mode) and Combined ABS brakes were added. In 16YM it moved on again, as the Forza 300 with a new ‘sit-in’ design large enough to carry two people in total comfort, even at highways speeds.

18YM marked the unveiling of a radically revised Forza 300 – lighter, smaller, sharper and sportier – following in the hugely successful wheel tracks of its little sibling, the Forza 125, while retaining all the best attributes of its ‘GT’ nature. A ‘Limited-Edition’ model with Grey/Gloss Black colour scheme and matching Smart top box added an exclusive choice in 2020.

In 21YM it was time for another advance – the Forza 350. Faster, even more useful – with new features like Bluetooth connectivity and Honda Smartphone Voice Control system – and, of course, stylishly desirable with it.

Mechanically unchanged for 22YM, a premium new colour option adds further appeal.

 

  1. Model Overview

Developing 21.6kW and 31.9Nm, the Forza 350’s 330cc engine is strong all the way through its rev-range, delivering crisp acceleration and a top speed of 137km/h. It’s also EURO5 compliant.

Alongside the new engine, in 21YM, cosmetic and aerodynamic updates were applied to the front fairing sides, mirrors, rear side panels and engine cover for a sleeker overall look with even more premium appeal. The chassis was unchanged but connected to a lighter swingarm, and the adjustable electric screen gained an extra 40mm travel to improve wind protection.

The instrument panel was also refreshed, with the Forza 350 rider having the possibility of linking to their smartphone via Bluetooth via the Honda Smartphone Voice Control system which is available as an option from new.

A USB Type-C socket provides convenient charging, with room for two full-face helmets in the under seat storage compartment.

The front left inner fairing pocket is lockable, and its internal space can be arranged for the rider’s convenience, to hold a phone and water bottle, for instance. It also houses a USB socket. All lighting is premium LED.

Keeping its rider fully connected, the Forza 350 also has the Honda Smartphone Voice Control system available as an option from new, which links the rider to their smartphone while on the move and allows voice management of phone calls and music. A helmet-mounted headset is needed and the smartphone connects via Bluetooth; management of Honda Smartphone Voice Control System is from the left switchgear and dash.

The Forza 350’s Smart Key – as well as controlling the main ignition switch knob and compartment locking – also manages the optional 45L Smart top box. With the Smart Key in the rider’s pocket the box is unlocked, and automatically locks when the rider walks away. It can also be locked from the key. To maintain the internal volume of the box the actuator mechanism is located in the rear body of the machine.

The front and rear indicators of the Forza 350 have an auto-cancelling Emergency Stop Signal feature. Once the ABS modulator detects sudden braking, the rear indicators flash at high speed to warn other vehicles.

Instruments present analogue speedometer and rev-counter flanking a digital display that can switch between 3 modes: 1) odometer, range remaining and current mpg, 2) trip meter, average mpg and timer and 3) ambient temperature thermometer and battery sensor.

 

3.2 Engine

  • 330cc engine puts out 21.6Kw peak power with 31.9Nm torque
  • enhanced Smart Power+ (eSP+) technology ensures fuel economy of 30km/l (WMTC mode)
  • EURO5 compliance

The Forza 350’s eSP+ engine achieves both high environmental performance and strong output characteristic through comprehensive adoption of technologies for friction reduction.

Liquid-cooled the 330cc, fuel-injected SOHC four-valve unit produces peak power of 21.6kW @ 7,500rpm, with maximum torque of 31.9Nm @ 5,250rpm. Top speed is 137km/h and, from a standing start, the Forza 350 will cover 200m in 10.4s.

Bore is set at 77mm with stroke of 70.7mm; compression ratio is set at 10.5:1. Roller-type rocker arm, plain journal crank bearings and sealed crankcases deliver long-term reliability together with strong performance. To enhance piston cooling, an oil jet, as used on the CRF450R, sprays oil right to the back of the piston, advancing ignition timing and improving combustion performance. Oil capacity is 1.8 litres.

Air is supplied via a 5.5 litre airbox which feeds a 36mm throttle body. The intake port draws air efficiently, utilising a ‘tumble’ flow within the cylinder for more consistent fuel combustion. Exhaust gases are expelled via a straight exhaust port and, to reduce exhaust gas resistance, the muffler consists of two distinct chambers.

Internal friction is reduced through a 5mm offset cylinder, a hydraulic cam chain adjuster and the use of a scavenger pump. Used on high performance machines, the pump lowers the internal pressure within the engine, reduces oil agitation and decreases pumping losses and internal rotational friction. A balancer shaft further reduces vibration and contributes to a smooth enjoyable ride.

An automatic centrifugal clutch works a V-Matic transmission (with ratios set for fast low speed reaction and smart acceleration) and belt final drive.

The Forza 350’s engine is equipped with Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC). The system detects any difference between the front and rear wheel speeds, calculates the slip ratio and then controls engine torque via the fuel injection to regain rear wheel traction. HSTC can be switched ON-OFF via a switch on the left handlebar. A ‘T’ indicator in the digital display flickers when the system is working to manage grip.

The engine is homologated for EURO5, which from January 1st 2020 introduced significantly stricter engine emissions standards compared to EURO4. These requirements include substantial reductions in permitted carbon monoxide emissions, an over 40% decrease in total hydrocarbon emissions, tougher misfire detection and the introduction of a particulate matter limit.

Fuel economy is a frugal 30km/l (WMTC mode); the 11.5L tank capacity gives a potential 340km+ range.

 

3.3 Chassis

  • Short wheelbase with sharp steering geometry
  • Compact body dimensions paired with a practical seat height
  • Both wheels cast aluminium; 14-inch diameter rear and 15-inch front

A sturdy, yet lightweight, tubular steel frame is at the heart of the Forza 350’s reassuring feel on the road. Wheelbase is 1510mm, rake is 26.5° and trail 89mm. The radiator is located in front of the fuel tank for better cooling performance, and the battery is found between the fuel tank and the under-seat storage area, focusing mass to the centre. Wet weight is 184kg.

Seat height is 780mm and the riding position naturally upright, promoting excellent all-round visibility. Handlebar width is 754mm, with front width of 580mm and mirror width of 860mm; compact dimensions that make slipping through traffic-heavy streets easy.

Rigid 33mm telescopic forks are matched by twin rear shock absorbers – adjustable through 7-stage spring preload – working through 1-piece aluminium swingarm.

The cast aluminium 15-inch front wheel is fitted with a 120/70-15 tyre while the 14-inch rear wears a 140/70-14 tyre, offering maximum traction and ride comfort. A 256mm single disc performs stopping duties up front, mated to a 240mm rear, with the benefit of 2-channel ABS for braking control on slippery surfaces.

  1. Introduction

 

Part of the million-selling SH family whose founding member, the SH50, went on sale in 1984, the four-stroke Honda SH125 first hit the market in Europe in 2001. Ever since, it has quietly and consistently gone about its mission to provide stylish, fun and fuss-free transport – becoming one of the continent’s favourites along the way.

That first machine laid down the blueprint for success: a frugal-natured but lively engine tied to nimble, sure-footed handling underpinned by the stability that large diameter 16-inch wheels deliver – all wrapped in elegant, premium styling.

Fuel injected with PGM-FI in 05YM, over the last 14 years the SH125i has come to represent the ultimate in urban transport with the perfect balance of style, reliability, economy and downright usability.

And of course its story is one of constant, careful evolution reflecting the developing needs and expectations of owners, and Honda’s desire to keep on giving them an even better version of their SH. In 2013 it gained Honda’s eSP (enhanced Smart Power) low friction engine and Idling Stop, boosting both power delivery and fuel economy. And in 2017 the look was refreshed with more chiselled design lines, and LED front/rear lights and Honda Smart Key added.

In 20YM the SH125i – manufactured at Honda’s Atessa factory in Italy – was, effectively, a brand-new scooter. Standing squarely on the shoulders of its forbears it instantly became faster, even more stylish, comfortable, convenient to use and as cost effective as ever to own and run. Of course, it could never be anything else. It is an SH, after all.

For 22YM, two stylish new colour options make the SH125i even more desirable.

 

  1. Model Overview

Making the SH125i better was no easy goal for the 20YM update – it is one of Europe’s favourite scooters for a reason. But more power, torque and improved fuel-efficiency from a EURO5-compliant four-valve eSP+ engine was a good place to start. The addition of HSTC was also a bonus for any owner’s peace of mind.

A redesigned frame allowed extra and ever-useful storage space (plus inclusion of a USB charger) and optimisation of the rear suspension geometry enhanced comfort. And premium new bodywork and stylish front signature redefined and reinforced the SH125i’s presence, with full LED lighting and crisp LCD dash.

Five configurations are on offer:

  1. Standard SH125i without accessories
  2. SH125i with Smart top box
  3. SH125i with Smart top box, knuckle guards and windscreen
  4. SH125i with standard top box
  5. SH125i with standard top box, knuckle guards and windscreen.

 

  1. Key Features

3.1 Styling & Equipment

  • Stylish, SH signature flat-floored design
  • 28L total under seat storage capacity, with USB socket
  • All lighting LED with LCD instrument dash

 

Smooth and solid were the two words that led the design direction for the sleek, unified body style with the tension between the two reinforcing a premium presence. And the SH125i’s ‘face’ sets it apart – the fairing-mounted headlight (almost an LED ‘H’) features a central main beam splitting dual dip beams, while position lights reside above on the handlebar nacelle.

The elegant looks are matched to effortless practicality. The overall compactness, flat floor and upright riding position (essential for ease-of-use and visibility in busy town traffic) are conspicuous hallmarks of the SH look. Less obvious is the 28L of under seat storage, capable of holding a full-face helmet. A USB charging point is also included.

The flat seat provides plenty of support and room to move around and its carefully contoured shape, plus slim floor width, makes reaching the ground easy. As many journeys around town involve a pillion there’s plenty of room for two; retractable aluminium pillion footplates tuck away when not in use and provide a stable platform – especially under braking – when needed for the passenger.

The rear light is LED with a chrome surround, matching the front, and the LCD dash presents all warning lights – including Smart Key, HSTC/ABS and Idling Stop operation – neatly around a central digital speedo/odometer display. All operations on the dash are carried out via A/B buttons on the left handlebar.

The SH125i’s Smart Key resides in the rider’s pocket and does away with the need to constantly insert and withdraw a key for ignition, fuel cap and seat. It has two switches: the smart function on/off and ‘answer back’, which flickers the indicators for identification from a distance.

With the Smart Key present one push of the machine-mounted main switch powers it up and makes it possible to turn, giving the rider control of the ignition and steering lock, and, via two rocker switches, the fuel cap and seat. It also illuminates when pushed – or from the answer back function of the Smart Key – with a blue light.

 

3.2 Engine

Four-valve eSP+ engine produces 9.6kW peak power and 12Nm torque

  • Also employs Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC)
  • EURO5 compliant, with Idling Stop and low-friction technologies

The SH125i’s 125cc liquid-cooled four-valve enhanced Smart Power+ (eSP+) engine produces peak power of 9.6kW @ 8,250rpm with 12Nm torque delivered at 6,500rpm.

Full economy (without Idling Stop activated) is 45.7km/l (WMTC mode). And just as important to owners and for a machine that will spend most of its time in an urban environment, the SH125’s engine is EURO5 compliant; the allowable limits for exhaust tailpipe pollutants such as carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrous oxide specified by EURO5 are drastically lower than those of EURO4.

Technology to boost rider confidence in wet conditions is Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) that works in the background to deftly manage rear wheel traction. An indicator flashes on the dash when HSTC is actively reducing wheelspin and the system can also be turned off completely.

Bore is set at 53.5mm with stroke of 55.5mm; compression ratio is 11.5:1. The compact engine is a masterpiece of mass centralisation. The radiator, rather than being mounted at the front of the machine is built into the engine itself for a simple, light layout. Its highly efficient core allows for the use of an ultra-compact, light cooling fan.

Low-friction technologies are employed internally; the cylinder sleeve uses minute splines on its outer surface to keep oil consumption low and improve cooling and the cylinder is offset to keep frictional losses to a minimum. Rolling resistance within the transmission is kept in check by the use of three main bearings, all designed to deal with the loads they each individually receive.

A key fuel-saving technology incorporated into the SH125i is Idling Stop. It’s operated via a switch on the right handlebar and, when enabled, automatically stops the engine running after three seconds at idle, and re-starts it instantly when the throttle grip is twisted.

It is seamless in use, thanks to a swing-back system that returns the crank to its position before air intake, and a decompression mechanism that negates cranking resistance due to compression. The ACG starter also generates electricity, doing away with a conventional system’s motor and gears.

 

3.3 Chassis

  • High-tensile tubular steel underbone frame
  • Optimised rear suspension geometry ride comfort
  • 16-inch front and rear wheels deliver sure-footed confidence

The high-tensile tubular steel underbone frame sites the 7L fuel tank under the floor  beneath the rider’s feet, which frees up 10L additional space. Wheelbase is set at 1,350mm with rake and trail of 26°/85.2mm and turning radius of 2.05m. Seat height is 799mm with wet weight of 133.9kg.

For ride comfort the engine hanger link angle and rear suspension angle are optimised to reduce rotational load toward the engine link, making for supple bump absorption and control.

Lightweight 16-inch aluminium die-cast wheels have always been key to the SH125i’s sure-footed handling ability and stability on a variety of road surfaces and mount Michelin City Grip tubeless tyres sized 100/80-16 front and 120/80-16 rear.

The rear shocks feature 5-step preload adjustment with 83mm axle travel. The 33mm telescopic front forks, with 89mm of travel, ensure excellent road holding and are tuned to give a compliant, yet controlled ride. ABS is fitted as standard; both front and rear discs have a 240mm diameter; the front caliper is a two piston design, the rear a single piston.

 

  1. Accessories

Alongside the standard top box are the redesigned screen and knuckle guards for enhanced weather protection. The Smart top box – which operates together with the Smart Key – and opener kit can also be retro-fitted.

  1. Introduction

It’s not often in the world of motorcycling that a fresh line of thinking emerges to create a new breed of machine. But Honda specializes in innovation and in 16YM unveiled a completely new concept, straight out of left field – the X-ADV.

The thought processes that led to its birth? Consider the attributes of the average adventure-style motorcycle – tough go-anywhere appeal, an upright riding position giving superb visibility and remarkable all-round usefulness, work or play. Then take a look at the typical commuter; it might be a scooter or motorcycle, but in either case it will be easy to manage, nimble and loaded with convenience, efficiency and useful storage space. Honda’s forward-thinking engineers combined the two together, and something special happened.

The machine they created had a rugged, stylish SUV image fully at home navigating the urban sprawl. And while it was loaded with all of the premium features that enable easy life in the big city, it also had the looks, engine power and chassis ability to inject every ride with the promise of adventure.

The X-ADV captured the essence of two-wheeled freedom in an exciting new form and garnered the attention of an army of riders around Europe, eager for something new, and has proved itself a genuine sales success. And, proving its off-road credentials, in the hands of seasoned Italian racer Renato Zocchi a lightly modified version took overall Class 2 victory in the gruelling 7,000km 2019 Gibraltar Rally.

And it has not stood still. In 21YM Honda upped the X-ADV’s engine performance, trimmed weight, enhanced style and added even more usefulness. Making the X-ADV even cooler and more desirable in the process.

 

  1. Model Overview

The 21YM updates were comprehensive, starting with 3kW more peak power for the EURO5-spec engine, and an extra 600rpm to the redline. Shorter ratios for first, second and third gears delivered smarter acceleration, while taller fourth, fifth and sixth ratios allowed relaxed higher speed cruising and excellent fuel economy. Throttle By Wire (TBW) brought with it 4 default rider modes plus a custom choice. The Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) used Automatic shifting schedules that link with the riding modes.

A new frame and detail improvements saved 1kg alongside a sharper, more aggressive edge to the X-ADV’s bodywork. The dual LED headlights also gained Daytime Running Lights (DRL), as used by the CRF1100L Africa Twin.

For easier ground reach the seat was re-contoured at the shoulders. The redesigned under seat storage space grew in volume and also housed a USB charging point; relocating the parking brake to the right handlebar freed up space for a useful new glovebox. And a revised TFT instrument display also featured Honda Smartphone Voice Control System.

 

 

  1. Key Features

 3.1 Engine

  • Throttle By Wire control; peak power figure of 43.1kW with 69Nm torque
  • EURO5 compliant, with 3.6l/100km fuel efficiency
  • 35kW A2 licence version available

The design of the X-ADV’s liquid-cooled, SOHC 8-valve parallel twin-cylinder engine ensures punchy performance in the low-to-mid range. Its relatively long-stroke architecture and specially shaped combustion chambers combine with the high-inertial mass crankshaft to produce large amounts of effortless torque from very low rpm. A forward cant brings the centre of gravity down for optimum stability.

Peak power is set at 43.1kW @ 6,750rpm, with maximum torque of 69Nm @ 4,750rpm. From 30 km/h the X-ADV will cover 20m in 1.7s, 50m in 3.2s, while at 60km/h the torquey engine is turning at just 2,500rpm.

For A2 licence holders a 35kW version is available, which can be easily converted to the full power version by a Honda dealer at the appropriate time. Equally, it is possible to restrict the full power version to 35kW by a Honda dealer remapping the ECU.

Twin balancers counteract vibration from higher rpm inertia without affecting the distinct ‘throb’ delivered by the engine’s irregular firing order and 270° phased crankshaft. Bore and stroke is set at 77 x 80mm. Where possible components are made to do more than one job: the camshaft drives the water pump, while one of the balancer shafts drives the oil pump.

By keeping the number of parts to a minimum in this way, the engine is kept light, efficient and reliable.

The X-ADV engine sips fuel ­– with a measured consumption of 27.8km/l (WMTC mode) providing a potential 366km range from the 13.2-litre fuel tank. It is also compliant with EURO5 regulations, which from January 1st 2020 introduced significantly stricter engine emissions standards compared to EURO4. These requirements include substantial reductions in permitted carbon monoxide emissions, an over 40% decrease in total hydrocarbon emissions, tougher misfire detection and the introduction of a particulate matter limit.

 

3.2 Engine Electronics

  • Throttle By Wire delivers 4 default riding modes, plus USER customisation
  • Honda Selectable Torque Control features 3 levels of intervention

With TBW managing engine performance and character there are 4 modes for the rider to choose from, covering all riding conditions. Mode selection is managed by the left-hand switchgear.

  • STANDARD delivers a balanced middle point between engine power delivery, engine braking and HSTC intervention, with the strongest level of ABS intervention.
  • SPORT gives more aggressive engine power delivery and engine braking, with low HSTC intervention, high ABS.
  • RAIN transmits low engine power delivery and engine braking, high HSTC and ABS input.
  • GRAVEL employs high power and engine braking with low HSTC and ABS.
  • USER offers custom options of low/medium/high between engine power delivery and engine braking and low/medium/high/off for HSTC.

Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) offers refined control as it uses TBW to manage torque delivered to the rear wheel, with 3 levels of input:

Level 1 allows the minimum intervention for some rear wheel spin – on gravel or dirt for instance, and its level of intervention is reduced from the previous design.

Level 2 is the default setting and provides confidence-inspiring traction for general riding conditions.

Level 3 provides maximum control for slippery roads.

HSTC can also be switched OFF.

 

3.3 Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT

  • Differing shifting schedules link with riding modes
  • USER mode allows choice of 4 settings, from smooth to aggressive

Honda’s DCT technology is now in its 12th year of production, and over 200,000 units of DCT-equipped Honda two-wheelers have been sold in Europe. It delivers consistent, seamless gear changes up or down and very quickly becomes second nature in use. It uses two clutches: one for start-up and 1st, 3rd and 5th, the other for 2nd, 4th and 6th, with the mainshaft for each clutch located inside the other for compact packaging.

Each clutch is independently controlled by its own electro-hydraulic circuit. When a gear change occurs, the system pre-selects the target gear using the clutch not currently in use. The first clutch is then electronically disengaged as, simultaneously, the second clutch engages.

The result is a consistent, fast and seamless gear change. Furthermore, as the twin clutches transfer drive from one gear to the next with minimal interruption of the drive to the rear wheel, any gear change shock and pitching of the machine is minimised, making the change feel direct as well as smooth. Extra benefits include durability (as the gears cannot be damaged by missing a gear) impossibility of stalling, low stress urban riding and reduced rider fatigue.

The DCT system offers two distinct riding approaches – the Automatic settings, with pre-programmed shift patterns which constantly read vehicle speed, gear selected and engine rpm to decide when a shift should occur, and the Manual Transmission setting for gear changes using the paddle-shift style triggers on the left handlebar.

Through TBW control there are 5 Automatic shifting schedules available. Level 1 is the most relaxed, with upshifts and downshifts operating at relatively lower rpm; it is linked with the RAIN riding mode. Level 4, on the other extreme, shifts up at higher rpm and also downshifts earlier for more engine braking effect; it is linked with the SPORT mode. Level 2 is linked with STANDARD riding mode, with Level 3 situated between STANDARD and SPORT.

For the GRAVEL riding mode, the X-ADV uses the relatively sporty ‘G’ shifting pattern; this has the added functionality of a decreased level of ‘slip’ as the clutches operate from a fully open or closed throttle – to give the rider more direct feel for traction at the rear wheel, and the ability to perform controlled sliding off road. Whereas this functionality was previously activated by the separate G Switch, it is now integrated into the new ‘G’ shift pattern of the DCT.

The USER mode functionality allows the rider to select any of the DCT shift patterns with the preferred permutations of the other parameters – power delivery, engine braking, ABS and HSTC.

 

3.4 Styling & Equipment

  • Sharp, slim and aggressive SUV styling 
  • Honda Smartphone Voice Control System offers smartphone link through 5-inch TFT display
  • Twin LED headlights include Daytime Running Lights
  • Large 22L storage space includes a glovebox, and houses a USB charger

The X-ADV’s unique head-turning styling, originally conceived and developed by Honda’s R&D team in Italy, became slimmer and sharper in 2021. The silhouette still deliberately upright, but with each body-panel honed to create stronger intent.

Dual LED headlights feature Daytime Running Lights (DRL) that automatically adjust to ambient light intensity and give a bright, highly visible light improving safety. All lighting is LED.

In terms of ergonomics, the 820mm seat height (shaped for easy ground reach) and wide handlebar set at 910mm ensure a high eye point, giving great visibility. For commuting or touring, the X-ADV’s screen adjusts without tools through 5 positions from low-to-high to maximise or minimise airflow. The total height difference is 139mm, with an 11° rake between the highest and lowest points.

Incorporated into the X-ADV’s rider interface and viewed through the 5-inch TFT display is the Honda Smartphone Voice Control System, which links the rider to their smartphone while on the move and allows voice management of phone calls, email, music and navigation. A helmet-mounted headset is needed and the smartphone connects to the dash via Bluetooth; management of the system is also possible through buttons on the left switchgear.

Tough plastic hand guards deflect wind and rain, while adding protection for hands and levers from stones when off-road. A shot-peened 2.5mm thick aluminium bash plate guards the underside.

The under seat 22L luggage space accommodates a full-face helmet and is lit with an integral LED, whose textured surface delivers uniform illumination without glare. A USB charging socket is located at the rear of the compartment. A centre stand – with tilt sensor – is fitted as standard and allows the X-ADV to be parked on an incline without fear of toppling.

For added convenience the X-ADV uses a Smart Key, which lives in the rider’s pocket and does away with the need to use a key for ignition, fuel cap and seat. With the Smart Key present one push of the knob-type main switch powers it up and makes it possible to turn, giving the rider control of the ignition/steering lock and, via two rocker switches, the fuel cap and seat. It also has an ‘answer back’ function, which makes the indicators flash for easy identification from a distance, and locks and unlocks the optional Smart Top Box. A clutch mechanism in the main switch stops the handlebars unlocking by force.

The X-ADV’s rear indicators also have a self-cancelling Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) function. If negative acceleration of 6.0m/s2 is detected at a minimum speed of 53km/h with either brake working, the hazard lights flash to warn other road users a hard stop is in process. At the same speed the threshold is reduced if ABS is activated to a negative acceleration of a minimum 2.5m/s2.

The indicators also auto-cancel. Rather than using a simple timer, the system compares front and rear wheel speed difference and calculates when to cancel the indication relative to the situation.

 

3.5 Chassis

  • Lightweight tubular steel diamond frame 
  • 41mm cartridge-style USD fork and Pro-Link swingarm 
  • Radial mount four-piston front brake calipers, 296mm discs and ABS
  • 120/70 R17 and 160/60 R15 front and rear tyres

The X-ADV gained a new tubular steel diamond frame in for 21YM, which saved 1kg weight and freed up more useful space for the storage compartment.

Rake and trail are set at 27°/104mm with wheelbase of 1590mm. A 39° steering angle (and turning radius of 2.8m) makes the X-ADV manoeuvrable in tight traffic. Long travel suspension –153.5mm up front and 150mm from the rear – is matched to 165mm of ground clearance. Overall wet weight is 236kg.

For handling rough terrain, the 41mm cartridge-type USD fork adjusts for spring preload and rebound damping. The spring preload adjustable rear shock is a single tube split pressure design and operates the aluminium swingarm – constructed from a machined-hollow cross member and U-shaped (in cross section) arms – through Pro-Link.

The 17-inch front wheel and 15-inch rear use stainless steel rust-resistant spokes and contribute to the X-ADV’s ability to comfortably soak up rough terrain. Block-pattern tyres add to the ride quality and L-shape valve stems make checking air pressure easy. Tyres are sized 120/70 R17 and 160/60 R15 front and rear.

Dual radial-mount opposed four-piston calipers grip 296mm discs and work through ABS.

  1. Introduction

In 2016, when Honda unveiled the X-ADV – part big-bore scooter, part adventure motorcycle and clothed in all-new SUV-style bodywork – a rich vein of desire was opened with a bike that Europe didn’t know it needed. As an example of genuine innovation it has few equals in the past decade.

Its success has more than justified Honda’s decision to break that new ground – through September 2021, the X-ADV is second in the sales list in the hotly-contested ‘on-off’ category. And now it’s time for some of that forward thinking to filter down to the mid-capacity scooter market. Designed around the concept of ‘New Urban Adventure’ the new 22YM ADV350 mixes the sophistication and practicality of a polished scooter with rugged SUV style, drawing inspiration from the X-ADV.

It’s a fresh model that will appeal to a broad demographic (especially younger riders) and destined for a popular European segment. The ADV350 is born ready to explore the city, and beyond.

 

  1. Model Overview

With its tough stance the ADV350 already stands out from the homogenous crowd, and rugged angles and block colours promote the off-road look. The X-ADV is an obvious style benchmark, but so too is the CRF series of off-road performance machines.

Practicality has not been forgotten: there’s room for two full-face helmets under the seat, USB charger in the glovebox and convenience of Smart Key operation. The screen is height-adjustable and the LCD dash also integrates the Honda Smartphone Voice Control system.

The adventurous styling shows off the ADV350’s front end; the riding position offers natural control and the chassis – which includes 37mm USD forks, tubular steel frame and remote reservoir rear shocks – tuned to deliver agile steering, feedback and feel. Lightweight 15-inch front/14-inch rear wheels wear 120/70-15 front and 140/70-14 rear block-pattern tubeless tyres, allowing the ADV350 ample grip across all conditions. A 256mm single disc is matched to a 240mm rear.

There’s plenty of acceleration on tap, for urban and highway use. A 330cc, enhanced Smart Power+ (eSP+) SOHC four-valve engine delivers peak power of 21.6kW and 31.9Nm torque. Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and Emergency Stop Signals are standard.

 

  1. Key Features

 3.1 Styling & Equipment

  • Dual LED headlights lead the adventure style, set high above the front wheel
  • Two-stage height-adjustable screen
  • LCD instruments and Honda Smartphone Voice Control system
  • Two full-face helmets can be stored under the seat; USB Type-C socket in the glovebox and Smart Key operation

The ADV350’s styling gives more than a slight taste of adventure. Dual LED headlights (all lighting is LED) are set high above the front wheel, with the fairing sides cut out to show off the USD forks. Further accentuating the off-road feel, the painted panels are set high on blacked-out lower and rear seat cowl, giving an impression of the higher centre of gravity of machines like the X-ADV and competition-specification CRF450R.

A host of detail features are found around the ADV350 to add genuine versatility. The screen adjusts easily with a slide-lock mechanism through 2 stages and 133mm travel. In the high position airflow is controlled to wrap around the shoulders to reduce fatigue during longer, higher speed journeys. For city environments – where some cooling air is often appreciated, as is open visibility – the low position is perfect.

There’s plenty of room under the seat – 48L in total – which means two full-face helmets can tuck neatly away. The compartment can be divided using a separator plate, to suit the owner’s preference. A USB Type-C socket is also found in the lockable front left glove box, for smartphone charging. Seat height is an easy-to-manage 795mm.

Keeping its rider fully connected, the ADV350’s LCD dash integrates the Honda Smartphone Voice Control system, which links the rider to their smartphone while on the move and allows voice management of phone calls and music. A helmet-mounted headset and Honda’s RoadSync app are all that is needed to activate the system, and the smartphone connects via Bluetooth; management of Honda Smartphone Voice Control System is from the left switchgear.

Another convenient feature is the Smart Key, which controls the main ignition switch knob and seat locking from the rider’s pocket, and automatically locks the ADV350 when the rider walks away. It also manages the optional 50L Smart top box; with the Smart Key present the box is unlocked. An answer back switch also flashes the indicators for easy location.

 

3.2 Chassis

  • Lightweight tubular steel frame, 37mm USD forks and remote reservoir rear shocks deliver agile handling and natural control.
  • Six-spoke cast aluminium wheels run block-pattern tubeless tyres
  • Disc brakes front and rear plus Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) technology

As a scooter designed to handle the rough-road rigours of the city – and even light off-road conditions – the ADV350’s chassis is built to be confidence-inspiring. A lightweight tubular steel frame provides core strength; wheelbase is set at 1520mm, with rake of 26.5° and 89mm trail. Wet weight is 186kg.

Motorcycle-style 37mm USD forks (with 125mm stroke) are clamped by motorcycle-style top and bottom yokes, increasing rigidity for the entire front end. Twin remote reservoir shock absorbers use progressive, dual rate springs and offer excellent suspension reaction on a variety of road surfaces, and when two-up. With 130mm travel, they work a one-piece aluminium swingarm.

The wheel design is a new one for any Honda scooter. Cast aluminium and finished in black, the lightweight 15-inch front/14-inch rear use an X-shaped 6-spoke criss-cross pattern. The design elevates road feel and all-round agility; 120/70-15 front and 140/70-14 rear block-pattern tubeless tyres offer a supple ride thanks to wide tread width and ample air volume.

A 256mm single disc performs stopping duties up front, mated to a 240mm rear, with the benefit of 2-channel ABS for braking control. The Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) system also operates (and self-cancels) the rear indicators during a hard-stop situation, alerting road users behind.

 

3.3 Engine

  • 330cc, enhanced Smart Power+ (eSP+) SOHC four-valve engine
  • Peak power of6kW @ 7,500rpm31.9Nm torque @ 5,250rpm
  • Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC)
  • 5L fuel tank and 30km/l economy (WMTC mode) gives a potential 340km+ range

The ADV350’s 330cc, enhanced Smart Power+ (eSP+) SOHC four-valve engine achieves both high environmental performance and strong output characteristic – for use in and out of the city – through comprehensive adoption of low-friction technology.

Peak power of 21.5kW @ 7,500rpm is matched to 31.5Nm torque @ 5,250rpm. Bore and stroke are set at 77mm x 70.7mm, with compression ratio of 10.5:1. A roller-type rocker arm, plain journal crank bearings and sealed crankcases deliver long-term reliability together with strong performance. To enhance piston cooling, an oil jet, as used on the CRF450R, sprays oil right to the back of the piston, advancing ignition timing and improving combustion performance. Oil capacity is 1.8 litres.

Air is supplied via a 5.5 litre airbox and a 36mm throttle body feeds fuel/air mixture to 28mm inlet valves. The intake port draws air in efficiently, using a ‘tumble’ flow within the cylinder for consistent fuel combustion. Exhaust gases are expelled via a straight exhaust port. To reduce exhaust gas resistance the muffler uses dual chambers.

Internal friction is reduced through a 5mm offset cylinder, hydraulic cam chain adjuster and the use of a scavenger pump. Used on high performance machines, the pump lowers the internal pressure within the engine, reduces oil agitation and decreases pumping losses and internal rotational friction.  A balancer shaft further reduces vibration and contributes to a smooth, enjoyable ride. An automatic centrifugal clutch works V-Matic transmission (with ratios set for fast low speed reaction and smart acceleration) and belt final drive.

The ADV350’s engine is also equipped with two level Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC). The system detects any difference between the front and rear wheel speeds, calculates the slip ratio and then controls engine torque via the fuel injection to regain rear wheel traction. HSTC can be switched ON-OFF via a switch on the left handlebar. A ‘T’ indicator in the display flickers when the system is working to manage grip.

The engine is homologated for EURO5, which from January 1st 2020, introduced significantly stricter engine emissions standards compared to EURO4. These requirements include substantial reductions in permitted carbon monoxide emissions, an over 40% decrease in total hydrocarbon emissions, tougher misfire detection and the introduction of a particulate matter limit.

Fuel economy is a frugal 30km/l (WMTC mode); the 11.5L tank capacity gives a potential 340km+ range.

  1. Introduction

The very first Super Cub C100 was introduced in 1958, Honda’s 10th year of existence. Created by Soichiro Honda and his long-time business partner Takeo Fujisawa, its stated aim was straightforward: ‘to provide the joy of playing a useful part in people’s lives’.

Nearly 60 years later, in 2017, the 100 millionth Super Cub was built, cementing its status as the most popular motor vehicle the world has ever seen. Along the way the Super Cub’s simple attributes of unique styling, reliability, frugality and sheer usability have never gone out of fashion. And it has quietly achieved exactly what Soichiro and Takeo wanted: to get people mobile and keep them mobile.

Up to late 2018 the Super Cub  series had only been available in Japan, where it has long been popular with business users including the Japanese Post Office, and in South East Asia, where it retains an important role in people’s lives as private transport. Well aware of the number of urban European riders – across a wide range of age demographics – who look for credible retro-inspired machinery and head-turning style, Honda unveiled the Super Cub 125 in 2018 as a modern evolution of the legendary name, marking a new chapter in its long history.

For the 2022 year model, the Super Cub 125 receives further advances for its European audience. The timeless look is unchanged, but a brand-new EURO5-compliant engine and host of improvements drive it on, just as Soichiro and Takeo would have wanted.

 

  1. Model Overview

A new air-cooled SOHC engine design, with ECU setting, intake and exhaust to match, gains the Super Cub 125 EURO5 compliance. It produces slightly more power, and is more efficient, returning fuel economy of 1.5 litres/100km (WMTC mode). The ACG output is also uprated.

The classic styling is unchanged, and standard-fit pillion seat and footpegs are now added. Revised spring rates for front and rear suspension smooth the ride on rougher city streets.

 

  1. Key Features

3.1 Engine

  • Completely new engine is smoother, more powerful and more efficient
  • Revised ECU settings, intake and exhaust for EURO5 compliance
  • Alternating Current Generator (ACG) gains uprated output

Efficient and durable, the Super Cub 125’s new 124cc air-cooled engine combines the bottom-end (with re-designed crankcases) of the current Japanese-market C110 with the SOHC two-valve cylinder head and top-end of the latest MSX Grom. Bore is set at 50mm, stroke at 63.1mm with compression ratio of 10.0:1. Peak power of 7.2kW (a 0.1kW increase) arrives @ 7,500rpm, with peak torque of 10.4Nm @ 6,250rpm.

Smoothing airflow on the clean side, the new airbox, designed to match the new engine, is smaller and combines with the new connecting tube and new injector position to improve driveability.

The outward appearance of the muffler – one of the many elements of the Super Cub’s ‘mythology’ – stays the same while the internals are re-worked; two catalysers were in place on the previous engine but, with the gain in combustion efficiency for EURO5 compliance, a single, more efficient catalyser is used. The ECU has new programming to maximise performance and efficiency and the Alternating Current Generator (ACG) output increased.

The gearbox remains a 4-speed unit (with neutral at the bottom) and ­­– in true Super Cub tradition – is operated via ‘automatic’ centrifugal clutch, without the need for a clutch lever. At standstill the rider simply selects the gear required with the left hand foot lever and, as the throttle is opened, the clutch operates automatically and does so through each ratio change, up or down. Final drive ratio is 2.50 with 14T drive and 35T driven sprockets. A helical primary gear reduces ‘mechanical’ noise.

The Super Cub C125 engine returns amazing fuel economy – 1.5litres/100km (66.7km/l) (WMTC mode) giving a range of approx. 250km from the 3.7 litre fuel tank.

 

3.2 Styling & Chassis

  • Evocative styling unchanged; pillion pad and footpegs now standard-fit
  • New springs for fork and rear shock absorbers improve ride quality
  • As before, all lighting is LED and Smart Key operation comes as standard

The Super Cub 125’s time-tested, evocative styling – defined instantly by the leg-guards and fully enclosed mechanical parts – remains unchanged, and is a design with one word in mind: ‘universality’. In other words, it has to be easy for a wide range of people to use. A key part of this ethos is the laid-forward ‘S-shaped silhouette’ which runs from the step-through space to rear mudguard, making access on and off easy. New for the 2022 year model is the addition of a pillion seat and foot pegs as standard equipment.

Also instantly recognisable as Super Cub is the ‘unit’ steering, which unifies the separate elements – forks, handlebars and leg shields – into one cohesive whole. On the original machine the handlebars, shaped to be like the wings of a bird, were a tactile and welcoming sales point and the modern day Super Cub C125 with its forged, tapered handlebar wrapped in curvaceous moulded resin incorporating the switchgear and instruments, pays loyal homage to the original.

The grips are placed in a natural, easy-to-hold position and complement the straight-backed riding position, which gives excellent all-round visibility. Aiding comfort, the seat uses thick, high-density urethane foam. It is also cut back on both sides up front, helping ground reach.

All lighting is contemporary LED while the instruments highlight the depth of the overall design with two lenses separated by dual chrome rings. The outer ring houses the sweep of the analogue speedometer’s needle plus warning lights; the inner an understated digital display.

A modern finishing touch is the Honda Smart Key which also controls the immobiliser as an extra theft deterrent, and is equipped with an ‘answer back’ function whereby the indicators will ‘blink’ at the push of a button to make finding the vehicle easy in busy parking areas. And, with a nod to its forebears (and underlining its place in Honda’s history) a historical 3D ‘Classic Wing’ logo crowns the Smart Key fob.

Fun, easy handling has always been another Super Cub strength. To this end, the tubular steel ‘backbone’ frame has a rigidity balance carefully tuned around the headstock and between the engine mounting points, to optimise performance for the 124cc engine; the redesigned engine crankcases have new mounting hangers. Both handlebars and seat are rubber mounted and the footpegs also feature rubber inserts.

Rake and trail are set at 26.5°/71mm with wheelbase of 1,245mm. Wet weight is 110kg. 100mm travel telescopic forks feature new springs improving control; the twin rear shocks (matched to body colour) also use new springs and bump-stop material for a smoother ride on bumpy roads, while elegant 17-inch die-cast aluminium wheels (with machined rims and spokes) add stability and steering precision. Tubeless tyres are fitted, sized 70/90-17 front and 80/90-17 rear.

A 220mm front disc brake and single-piston caliper are matched by a 110mm rear drum.

 

  1. Super Cub facts

Unsurprisingly, over six decades of production, the Super Cub has some remarkable stories and achievements behind it. Here are just fifteen:

  • The first prototype wasn’t drawn out on paper, but using a clay model, into which Mr. Honda himself had strong input, using some ideas from a fact-finding trip to Europe in 1956.
  • The first 1958 Super Cub C100’s low-floor backbone frame (for easy step-through), large leg shields (for protection from dust from unpaved roads), fully ‘enclosed’ bodywork (to hide the engine and harnesses), seagull-inspired handlebar shape and sky-inspired blue fairing laid down a universal template for decades to come.
  • The size 17 inch wheels (relatively large in order to handle Japan’s uneven road surfaces) were designed and made exclusively for the Super Cub.
  • It has always used a four stroke engine – even from its first 1958 incarnation.
  • It had to avoid the need for a clutch lever so a delivery rider could ride one-handed with a stack of Soba noodle boxes on his left shoulder.
  • Honda’s Suzuka factory was built in 1960 to help meet the demand for the hit product.
  • The Super Cub has been produced in 16 factories across 15 different countries, and sold in 160 different countries.
  • The Super Cub went on sale in the USA in 1959, with a sticker price of just $295. It took west coast surfing youth by storm and paved the way for much bigger things for Honda in America.
  • The first European production of Super Cub started in Honda Belgium (the second ‘overseas’ factory to product the vehicle).
  • It also starred in the ‘You meet the nicest people on a Honda’ ad campaign that changed the American perception of motorcycles away from being vehicles associated mainly with ‘biker gangs’.
  • The Beach Boys made it even more famous in 1964 with their song ‘My Little Honda’.
  • Also introduced to South Asia in 1964 the Super Cub became prized family transport that neatly dealt with the overwhelming traffic of the ever-growing major cities.
  • The Japanese Patent Office awarded it a 3D trademark registration in 2014, recognising its shape and design as an iconic Honda product, and making it the first vehicle to achieve this status.
  • Original sales were projected to be possibly 30,000 a month, which was amazing at the time as total motorcycle production in Japan was around 40,000 units a month, but something of an underestimate in the end.
  • In typical, low-key Super Cub way on October 29th, 2017 a commemorative ceremony was held at Honda’s Kumamoto factory to mark worldwide production of 100 million units.

  1. Introduction

The Vision 110, introduced to Europe in 2012, was created to offer reliable, fun mobility at an attractively low price. And, as a machine intended for daily use by a huge range of customers, qualities such as durability, dependability, safety and convenient usability were considered key priorities.

Thanks to its simple, reliable and efficient air-cooled, fuel-injected ‘enhanced Smart Power (eSP) engine’, stable chassis, the safety of Honda’s Combined Braking System (CBS) and extensive storage space, the Vision 110 has proved to be a smart and reassuring choice in the crowded entry-level scooter market.

And it builds on a proud heritage. The first Honda scooter, the 1954 Juno K, featured a range of new technology and materials, and was followed four years later by the revolutionary four-stroke Super Cub. With more than 100 million manufactured worldwide, the Super Cub is the best-selling motor vehicle in history – and still going strong today.

Set against ever-increasing customer expectations, it’s time for a brand-new Vision 110. Still using the same base formula set by the outgoing design but even smarter, lighter and ever more useful.

 

 

  1. Model Overview

The Vision 110’s contemporary styling update is wrapped around a new, lighter enhanced Smart Architecture Frame (eSAF) and redesigned, more fuel-efficient enhanced Smart Power eSP) air-cooled engine. New features include Smart Key operation of ignition and seat and a new LCD instrument panel.

 

  1. Key Features

3.1 Styling & Equipment

  • Crisply redesigned body retains practicality of a flat floor
  • Smart Key operation of ignition and new instrumentation

While it’s designed to be simple, easy transport, that does not mean the Vision 110 lacks a feeling of Honda quality and presence. For its 2021 makeover new styling stem to stern brings it bang up to date, and the common DNA with the rest of Honda’s scooter range is obvious. The updated look features a clear, dynamic character line with clean, elegant surfaces.

Like the iconic SH series, the Vision 110 has an upright posture and useful flat floor; it now also has plentiful under-seat storage volume, at 17.7L.

A Smart Key is also a welcome addition to the specification. Kept in a pocket, it controls both ignition and seat locking, adding genuine convenience in support of busy urban life. New instruments combine analogue speedometer with an LCD information panel. 

 

3.2 Engine

  • New, more fuel efficient ‘enhanced Smart Power’ two-valve, air-cooled SOHC engine
  • With Idling Stop, plus EURO5 compliance

The 109.5cc ‘enhanced Smart Power’ (eSP), two-valve air-cooled, fuel-injected SOHC powerplant is completely redesigned for 2021 and is light (weighing just 22kg) tough and efficient. It delivers a healthy 6.4kW@ 7,500rpm, with peak torque of 9.0Nm @ 5,750rpm. Bore and stroke is set at 47 x 63.1mm, with compression ratio of 10:1.

It’s very easy to use, with crisp throttle response perfect for the urban rider. And it sips fuel, with a 5% improvement in efficiency compared to the previous design. A range of over 260km is possible thanks to the ability to return approximately 54.5km/l (WMTC mode) and 4.9L under-seat fuel tank.

Low friction technologies, like the use of double-cog belts, are found throughout and incorporated into the engine’s architecture. The electronically controlled, brushless ACG starter is an integrated component mounted directly on the end of the crankshaft, serving as starter motor and alternator. It spins the engine directly, eliminating any noise from gear engagement or meshing.

Idling Stop automatically stops the engine running after three seconds at idle when the scooter is stationary and the brakes applied, and re-starts it instantly the throttle grip is twisted. It’s seamless in use thanks to ACG and the swing-back system that returns the crank to its position before air intake, and a decompression mechanism that negates cranking resistance from compression.

The Vision 110 engine is also now EURO5 compliant.

 

 

3.3 Chassis

  • All-new, lighter enhanced Smart Architecture Frame
  • 2kg weight removed overall
  • 16-inch front, 14” rear wheel

An advanced, lightweight next-generation enhanced Smart Architecture Frame (eSAF) replaces the tubular steel underbone design of the previous model. Constructed from laser-welded pressed steel, with a carefully engineered rigidity balance, it offers good handling feel, with enhanced stability, ride comfort and durability – perfect for the variety of daily rigours the Vision 110 is designed to endure.

Rake is set at 26° 30’, with 71mm trail and wheelbase of 1,280mm. Kerb weight is 2kg lighter, at 100kg; the overall result is an outstandingly agile and user-friendly scooter for riders of varying experience and abilities.

Sturdy telescopic forks are matched with a compliant rear shock absorber. The cast-aluminium wheels are unchanged in design and mount 80/90-16 and 90/90-14 front and rear tyres.

Up front the 220mm hydraulic disc brake links to a rear 130mm drum via CBS, ensuring smooth and evenly distributed braking force at all times, including hard and emergency stops.
