Sorry, I can't figure how to embed from my tablet.
I just ran across this video of a brand new 110. Just looks so perfect I thought I should share. I see some decent shocks, heated grips, and the beloved low range box. :clap
I would really like a pair of those in the garage !

That is SO cool! Yes I want one too! I love that neat bag on the downtube also! :clap

Drum brakes still? And a 150cc engine would be nice.

isn't that just one of the new ones they ve been making and selling down under to the post office ? I wonder if they are now bring back to other country .

Moat 01-01-2013 06:04 PM

Yep... WANT! (damnit)
Hey Honda - maybe the time is ripe to bring the CT110 back to the States...

With the front rack, enclosed chain and cool shocks, of course.I dig the black rims and crash bars, too. Aaarrghh...:becca

Can anyone help me find a site showing the CT-110's in any country's Honda motorcycle lineup? I looked for an hour and didn't find anything.

I was under the impression that they went out of production four or five years ago. I sure hope I'm wrong.

They were last listed in the Austrailian and New Zealand Honda motorcycle lineup as "agricultural bikes" but they're not there anymore.

It just isn't fair. But as much as I want one, most people do not, and they would not likely sell here. And they probably do not meet U.S. EPA and DOT standards. I'll bet it still has a carb on it.

A drum brake is perfectly sufficient on a bike that size, and is a lot cheaper to manufacture and maintain. It is also less vulnerable to off road damage. I have snagged and cut the front brake hose on my XT225 twice while trail riding. A cable is a lot tougher, cheaper, and easier to replace. And in a crash, a drum brake does not have a caliper stuck out there on the fork to get smashed. And for off road or dirt road use, traction is the limiting factor in braking anyway, not how strong the brakes are.

Standard motorcycle maker crap . Usa/canada is a high end market where you ll see scooter eg bmw new hit the streets but not others they make. From what I understand 1/2 million bikes and scooters are sold in this market every year. Honda sold 800 000 scooters in just tyeland last year. In Mexico honda has the 150cc honda cargo bike for 1800 bucks. Thats cheap but you ll never see it here. You could buy one and bring it back to Canada but I don't know if you could do that for the USA. The day you see people going shit we need bike for daily trasport because we can't afford the gas for a car then you ll see bike like the ct110 come back. I just wondering doesn't someone bring in a china clone of the ct110 to the usa?

About 10 years ago, when they were still being manufactured in Mexico, and sold for about $8000 brand new, I tried to find a way to bring a brand new air cooled VW Beetle into the U.S. I was tired of all the problems I was having with my old beat up rusted out bugs. Basically I was told "no how no way" They actually could be brought here, but could not be legally registered here. I think the EPA and DOT are a big part of the reason we don't get a lot of cool bikes here that you can get a lot of other places. It costs serious money to "certify" a vehicle for the U.S. market, that CT would likely have to have a disc brake, different turn signals, fuel injection, a catalytic exhaust, etc, etc. By the time they did all that it would cost way more than anyone would be willing to pay for it. And I'm afraid a Chinese copy would turn out like the Chinese clone of the Big Ruckus, basically junk. A real Honda CT110 is a bike you can count on to take you pretty much anywhere. Without breaking down.

950,000 YEN = 10914.55 USD = Not for me.

I can't find any Honda sites showing them for sale. But I looked up the shop that put the video up:

I have no idea what any of that says.
