A 150ADV and a rebel
Still not a bad choice
Red bike should have a black rack like the tan/grey bike.
If you put a deposit on a bike with no set price yet, are you agreeing to whatever price and fees they come up with?
I have wondered why on the new motors they changed the fin direction..
I would have thought fins in line with the air flow would be better instead
of having the first fin shadowing the ones behind from the air flow..
maybe the head and cylinder are used on a up right motor as well...
Probably for stylistic reasons. In all honesty I don't think waste heat dissipation is a problem with this motor, it hasn't been before and they used to be a lot less efficient.
Guessing that slower going and not as much forced air around the head they want heat to be able to escape upwards for most efficient dissipation.
Whatever the reason, I'm sure it works.
At my dealership the deposit is simply just a place holder. You are really not agreeing to anything. However if its a hot model with several people in line you pretty much have to take it if you want it. Luckily the last few bikes I purchased my dealer was fairly honest and straight forward. They did not give them away it was about what was expected. My dealer tends to be a straight shooter when it comes to brand new and current units and especially Honda lately. I am not sure but is as if Honda cracked a whip or something. Now when it comes to new old stock units my dealer gets crazy. Yeah you can buy that 3 year old leftover bike for half the MSRP price but then they fee it up an incredible amount. Often its not such a deal after all especially on a 3 year old bike.
Hit a milestone a few days ago. I now have $4500 in cash saved up for the CT125 just by making fake payments into an escrow (closet fund) bit by bit. This is pretty close to what it may end up costing within a few hundred. I will slowly build my saving a little higher but as of right now will be able to pay cash for it. Hopefully I won't have to tap those funds in the future. I also still owe about $1500 on my Super Cub 125 and about $1800 on my Monkey. So depending on the state of things when the CT125 actually comes out I may use those funds to pay off those bikes. If its a long wait I think I an retain the savings and pay off those bikes which is the ideal thing to do!
Ok, I wasn't sure. Thanks for the info.
CUB House Chonburi just shared pictures of a YELLOW CT125 on Facebook. Not sure if they painted it or it rolled off the assembly line.
We had two red and one yellow CT90s growing up. I’d buy that!
To save me poring over the parts lists has anybody yet worked out whether the Supercub's chain case will fit on the CT?
It might....looks very similar but the CT doesn't have mounting points for the cover
If they ever do one in orange with gray accents like the 70’s CT90’s I might have a nostalgia heart attack.
That's what I was afraid of. I could cobble something up but to be honest I can't be arsed. I think I'll just stick a decent o-ring chain on it and be done with it.
Has anyone figured out what brand of tire is coming on the CT125s? I haven't seen any pics where I could read the name on the side wall and not many 80/90-17 tires are available in the US. All I find is more commuter oriented tires, (which makes sense from previous fitments), like Michelin City Pro and Continental ContiStreet.
We’ve been over this, there are a shitload of good 17x 2.5” or 2.75” tires out there, get those.
Do what you do, I'll do what I do. Math is important in life. 80mm/25.4 = 3.15". If you want to put a narrower tube tire on your loaded up CT125, go for it. I will continue to pursue tubeless options in the correct size or perhaps a little wider, if clearance is there. I simply asked if anyone knows what the OEM tires are, manufacturer wise?
I did ping the mother ship yesterday asking if the C125 front wheel is a direct swap to the CT125, and if there was an existing disk brake, cast rear wheel that could be swapped to the CT125. Honda offers cast wheel options in other markets for small bikes, but I suspect I'll get a standard liability answer of "we don't recommend that". I'll share what I hear back if it's enlightening.
