Good about this bike

Fuel Economy, Perkiest pick up in the segment

Not so good about this bike

Braking, Poor plastics in switch gear, 5th gear is sorely missed

Full Review

Style

A simple basic style is a delight for a conservative commuter. Certainly not the best looking when it comes to styling yet one could not find faults with the looks. Considering the looks of the bike is very much dependent upon the perceptions, one can certainly say it will not look out of place for any user from a teenager to a senior citizen. The quality of the plastic used in switch panels coild have been better. Overall 7 on 10 rating.

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox

A wonderful engine. Truely a Honda experience. Smooth functioning and unbelievably perky for a 110 cubic capacity. Fuel Economy on a slightly lower side compared to a certain Bajaj Discover yet I managed about 55Km/l in superheavy Mumbai traffic. On highway it returned around 62 kmpl at a consistent speed of 60-65 Kmph. Gear Shift is impressive. Little hard in a lower shift from 1st to neutral but that may be a peculiar case with the specific bike. I must say one surely misses a 5th gear taking into account the unbelievable power delivery of the 110 CC Honda Engine.

Ride Quality & Handling

Extremely Light and easy to handle. A delight in heavyy city traffics as it slips throgh the traffice with the ease of fish in water. It is quite perky in pick up and does a real good job till about 70kmph; beyond that vibrations are exprienced but who rides a commuter above that speed. Suspension could have been better and the back takes its toll on Monsoon roads in Mumbai with full of potholes. However, it was too much to expect from a commuter and the suspension is on no better-not worse terms with its competitiors.

Braking is extremely poor. Forget the nonavialabilitty of disc breaks, the available drum brakes are no good. Even at the speed of 40 you have a braking distance of 8-10 meteres. Can get really emabarassing in traffics. 

Final Words

Probably the best commuter segment bike in the market. Can't call it a value for moneyy as it is sold at premium compared to the competitors. However, Honda it is and You feel it when you ride. 

Areas of improvement  

Asthetics, braking, a 5th gear in a reportair will take it to a different high.
