|Bikers should rejoice as Boon Siew Honda today brought forth the new Honda Wave 110 for the masses. The former Honda Wave, introduced in ’06. had been a favorite amongst domestic ‘Kapcai’ riders, having sold 274,000 units during its eight-year lifespan.|
Now the 2013 Honda Wave, available in two versions – DX110 and S110, takes up a more stylish package, thanks to contemporary body stripes and rugged cast wheels. At the front, redesigned multi-reflector halogen headlight allows better visibility, especially at dusk. While, the rearlight gives brighter luminescence with clear signaling that works best in low-light conditions.
The convenient U-Box at the rear offers storage of personal items, including smartphones, tablets, and quite possibly, a helmet.
The Honda Wave 110 is powered by a 4-stroke engine that gives 7.67PS at 7500 rpm and 8.32Nm of torque. The bike is categorized to meet Euro-2 emission standards, while fuel efficiency is most incredible at 52.5km/l; that’s a 3.1km further than the previous Honda Wave. The figures are testified by ECE 40.
Braking has been enhanced from the previous edition, the new Honda Wave 110 features Front Disc Brake (DX version). The Honda Wave 110 has improved ride quality and a quieter ride, thanks to a new thermal protector exhaust pipe to the bike and an ergonomic handlebar. The exhaust provides added protection from heat, whereas the user-friendly handlebar is well suited for natural hand movements.
