Honda unveiled the new Vision, a wheeled scooter mid-high that is dedicated to urban mobility since arriving in 2012 and has been studied (both technically and aesthetically) to be successfully marketed internationally. The new model, that the intention of the giant Tokyo should continue the successful tradition of products such as Honda SH, has a four-stroke engine of 110 cc with PGM-FI electronic fuel injection and Euro3. The chassis features tubular steel frame, telescopic front fork and monoshock rear, both tuned to optimize the ride comfort.
The braking system consists of a 220 mm front disc and rear drum of 130 mm, both operated with only the left brake lever thanks to Honda CBS combined braking system, which increases safety when braking in the same (the lever right brake caliper operates the only front).
The wide saddle (as well as the compartment located underneath it), the instrumentation is neat, ergonomic design and sporty (but at the same time very simple), the wide variety of colors and accessories (theft, cover hands and cover the leg, lock, windshield) complete the technical equipment of a scooter that will be available on the Italian market and that the contract will most likely be characterized by a quality / price point competitive to consolidate and expand the deserved success Tokyo Home Italy also is getting into the scooter segment.
Modern design and extraordinary practicality – Honda has managed to combine these qualities in the new Honda Vision. Modern scooter perfectly fit into any lifestyle with a variety of wishes. Honda Vision meets all the requirements of a full-fledged urban scooter, it is safe, comfortable, beautiful and incredibly functional.
The high-tech 4-stroke engine offers even more power. Its balanced settings correspond to heavy city driving modes, and the responsiveness of the accelerator knob will allow you to quickly bypass all obstacles, maneuvering in a dense traffic flow. The innovative PGM-FI injection significantly improves fuel efficiency, and an installed exhaust system with a catalyst reduces harmful emissions to the atmosphere.
The spacious Honda Vision saddle is equally comfortable to ride alone or with a passenger. The lockable compartment under the seat allows you to quickly fold the necessary things, and additional niches near the legs will be useful for less overall small things. As an option for Honda Vision, an anti-theft system and an aerodynamic windshield are offered.
The scooter is designed for a city with heavy traffic. Model Honda Vision 110 is designed for people from 16 years, but the Honda Vision 50 – for the youngest scooter fans aged 14 years. The compartment under the saddle is not large, but the helmet intervenes. The scooter is designed to provide good ergonomics, comfort, reliability and low fuel consumption.
