121mpg from Honda's new Vision 110 commuter

1 of 2

Honda's new Vision 110 scooter is the latest low-cost bike from the Japanese firm, with a phenomenally low RRP of £1800.

Replacing the Lead 110, it's a 110cc fuel-injected, OHC, four-stroke single that returns a proven 121mpg from a 5.5 litre tank.

Features include electric start, a low 760mm seat height, under-seat storage capable of taking a full face helmet and two leg-shield cubby holes large enough for drinks or a set of full-length gloves.

The analogue dash provides the bare minimum of speedo, fuel gauge and warning lights. Honda's Combined Braking system links the front 190mm disc to the rear drum and provides confident braking from the 63mph top speed to standstill.

With surprisingly good wind protection, the Vision is a perfectly useable tool for both urban commuting and venturing our of town. Ultimately, the price and running costs are the biggest selling point. But while this is budget two-wheeling, you can expect quality as well.
