The Vision 110, introduced to Europe in 2012, was created to offer reliable, fun mobility at an attractively low price. And, as a machine intended for daily use by a huge range of customers, qualities such as durability, dependability, safety and convenient usability were considered key priorities.
Thanks to its simple, reliable and efficient air-cooled, fuel-injected ‘enhanced Smart Power (eSP) engine’, stable chassis, the safety of Honda’s Combined Braking System (CBS) and extensive storage space, the Vision 110 has proved to be a smart and reassuring choice in the crowded entry-level scooter market.
And it builds on a proud heritage. The first Honda scooter, the 1954 Juno K, featured a range of new technology and materials, and was followed four years later by the revolutionary four-stroke Super Cub. With more than 100 million manufactured worldwide, the Super Cub is the best-selling motor vehicle in history – and still going strong today.
For 21YM – and set against ever-increasing customer expectations – a brand-new Vision 110 rolled out, using the same base formula set by the outgoing design but smarter, lighter and ever more useful. For 23YM two new colour choices inject additional appeal, desirability and value to Honda’s everyday scooter.
The Vision 110’s contemporary styling, which includes the convenience of a flat floor, is wrapped around a lightweight enhanced Smart Architecture Frame (eSAF). Producing 6.4kW 9.0Nm @ the enhanced Smart Power eSP) air-cooled engine returns impressive fuel efficiency of 54.5km/l (WMTC mode). Smart Key operation of ignition and seat is a premium feature, as is the LCD instrument panel.
For 23YM, the Vision 110 will be available in the following colour options:
Pearl Jupiter Gray **NEW**
Matt Suit Blue Metallic **NEW**
Pearl Jasmine White
Matt Galaxy Black Metallic
Smart body style with flat floored practicality
Smart Key operation of ignition and seat
While it’s designed to be simple, easy transport that does not mean the Vision 110 lacks a feeling of Honda quality and presence and its clean, elegant styling shares common DNA with the rest of Honda’s scooter range. Like the iconic SH series, the Vision 110 has an upright posture and useful flat floor; it also has plentiful under-seat storage volume, at 17.7L. Smart Key operation is a premium, and useful, feature. Kept in a pocket, the key controls both ignition and seat locking, adding genuine convenience in support of busy urban life. The instruments comprise analogue speedometer with an LCD information panel. Fuel efficient ‘enhanced Smart Power’two-valve, air-cooled SOHC engine
and Idling Stop technology are on offer.
The 109.5cc ‘enhanced Smart Power’ (eSP), two-valve air-cooled, fuel-injected SOHC powerplant weighs just 22kg and is both durable and efficient. It delivers a healthy 6.4kW@ 7,500rpm, with peak torque of 9.0Nm @ 5,750rpm. Bore and stroke is set at 47 x 63.1mm, with compression ratio of 10:1. It’s very easy to use, with crisp throttle response perfect for the urban rider. And it sips fuel, with a range of over 260km possible thanks to the ability to return approximately 54.5km/l (WMTC mode) and 4.9L under-seat fuel tank.
Low friction technologies, like the use of double-cog belts, are found throughout and incorporated into the engine’s architecture. The electronically controlled, brushless ACG starter is an integrated component mounted directly on the end of the crankshaft, serving as starter motor and alternator. It spins the engine directly, eliminating any noise from gear engagement or meshing.
Idling Stop automatically stops the engine running after three seconds at idle when the scooter is stationary, and the brakes applied and re-starts it instantly the throttle grip is twisted. It’s seamless in use thanks to ACG and the swing-back system that returns the crank to its position before air intake, and a decompression mechanism that negates cranking resistance from compression.
Enhanced Smart Architecture Frame (eSAF)
Stability of 16-inch front wheel and 14” rear wheel

The advanced, lightweight next generation enhanced Smart Architecture Frame (eSAF) is constructed from laser-welded pressed steel, with a carefully engineered rigidity balance.
