Ever tried riding a scooter that looks similar to all other scooters? If so then I'm sure you'll love the new Honda Click I 110i Special Version, it's exactly what you need. The new Honda Click I range has really come on in the looks department, so if you've not seen the latest offerings it's maybe time to find a local Honda dealer and have a look. I picked this one up from a Honda dealer in Bangkok. This stylish very modern 4-stroke scooter comes in two color options, Challenge Black Yellow (B-Y) and Eager Red Black (R-B) and has a host of features that you'd usually expect to find on a scooter from Honda.
The raspy 4-stroke, 108cc single-cylinder engine, with a extra high compression ratio of 11:1, burst quickly into life at the first try to start it and I was soon easing out into Bangkok afternoon traffic. Despite its small 110cc capacity, the Honda Click I 110i Special Version accelerates quite quickly which helps to give you an advantage, unlike quite a few other scooters that tend to struggle low down because they're basically over-geared. The new Honda Click I 110i Special Version doesn't have that problems as it uses the latest V-Matic (Honda's Constant Variable Transmission) technology, which improves the power delivery and reduces friction. Everybody wants to get to their destination as fast as possible. The 2012 Honda Click I 110i is also equipped with the latest generation of Honda's fuel injection systems (PGM-FI), performance is excellent, I had never the feel that the 110cc class engine didn't had enough power. I need to tell that owners need to be a bit careful on the new tires, especially with a heavy downpour and some flooding on the street.
Overall the 2012 Honda Click I 110i gave a smooth and stable ride, but the seating position was a bit cramped (I'm 195cm) and the legshields could offer a bit more space for more comfort. The target market for this new sporty styled Honda scooter isn't likely to be too bothered about the minor details I have with it, so I'll concentrate on the all important detailing which will make it appeal to the youth of today instead.
The dash comes equipped with a tasty white-faced speedo. A couple of useful additions are the fuel-gauge which is located symmetrically to the right. An array of warning lights including FI, temperature, direction indicator lights. And high- low- beam.
Attention to detail throughout the 2012 Honda Click I 110i includes the all the color details on the body work and the matt black exhaust heat-shield which helps the scooter to look nice for longer. Pillion footpegs are well crafted and have the same matt black color. The styling of the new Honda Click I 110i is very well thougout and the fit and finish is second to none. A powerful headlight and clear indicators blend smoothly into the well-painted bodywork and help to finish things off nicely. The underseat area is fairly roomy and should just about swallow a regular size helmet.
