Test Ride

Honda got this one right. The bike handles like it was made for the roads. It seems to anticipate your every move and corners like a dream. First impression was, ’This looks old school, I like it!’ A very nice and dependable bike. The low seat height is very easy on & off. I like the location & ease of use of the controls especially the choke & fuel valve. The speedometer on the tank gives an open look over the handlebars. If you drive harder, you may want a larger bike.


Great Handling, Great Maneuverability, Great fuel mileage (48.8 City). The acceleration and shifting are fantastic, and the shaft drive makes the ride very smooth. The bike as a whole is very forgiving, and the visual appeal of the bike is fantastic. This bike is a true joy to ride!! All I can say is it’s worth the money.
Keep up the great work Honda.
