    What a great design! Hats off to Honda for bringing it back with enough improvements to make it better yet keeping it very close in looks to the original. I wish vespa would do the same with their smallframes. I’m glad to see they changed the forks. It was a strange experience using the front brake on the original ones!

    Like it – it’s not trying to be something different

    Fabulous bike! Had the C100, C50 & C90 bikes when I was a youngster. Love each one. Totally dependable. Put 30,000 miles on the C100. It only needed a new front wheel bearing and new clutch in all that time. Engine was still ok when I sold her, but I did maintain it religiously.

    I like the look of the new bike and the fact it has 4 gears instead of the original bikes 3, and a bigger motor can only be a good thing. I understand it can hit 188mpg on the WMTC test. Probably means it will go 150mpg on the road. Probably cruise at 55+mph for ever and ever. As a Vespa GTS300 owner, I can see one of these sitting in the garage next my current ride…can’t wait to test ride one.

    Thanks for the road test Scooterlabs.

    Am I right in thinking as a 125cc it is restricted in some way? Not meaning just this model. I seem recall when 250’s where banned for learners, 125’s took over but had to be restricted power wise. Just wondering if this is still true on today’s modern machines?
    Last time I rode a modern 125 it did feel that at 60mph something kicked in to stop it going any faster. Shame if it has to be this way.
