2012 CT110 (Japan)

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.
I would really like a pair of those in the garage !

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

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...

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.

I can't find any Honda sites showing them for sale. But I looked up the shop that put the video up:
http://homepage3.nifty.com/cilindro/bike1.htm

I have no idea what any of that says.

...and from the pics on that website, it appears that Honda showed a Cross Cub concept in November.

I doubt they would bring it to the US. But it's nice to see Honda still thinks about the old trail cubs.

The CTX200 looks like a nice bike but it's basically the old XR-200 in a street-legal form with racks. For farm use where you'd be getting on and off of it all day long I'd think the CT-110 with it's step-through frame would be superior for this use. On the other hand given that the XR-200R was at one time the state-of-the-art in smallbore enduro bikes (although that was 25 years or more ago) it might be more fun to ride at a spirited pace. "Gee, dad, the fence line sure needs to be run again..."

Guess I'll be forced to continue to hunt for old junquers to get my CT fix. Thanks again for the links to the vids.

One of the close-ups shows a build date of 9/11 which would be a 2012 model. As long as they're still in production we can hope.

The reason is the EPA, that simple!! Here is a site for CT's if you want info or just like them as I do.

If anybody can find the bag on the CT in the video I'd sure like 1 and could sell a bunch. Searched all over since I saw and no luck, even with the name on the bag.
