Honda shows hot new concept based on the Thai-spec CZ-i110


A 110cc step-thru that can do 160km/h?!

According to a report on Gizmag, Honda recently showed an 110cc step-thru bike in Thailand. And before you snort in utter contempt, get this – the concept bike, based on the Honda CZ-i110 that’s sold in Thailand, features Honda’s PGM-FI tech, and is capable of hitting a top speed of around 160km/h! That kind of performance, from a bike that’s fitted with a single-cylinder, four-stroke 110cc engine, would be nothing short of absolutely stunning…

The Honda CZ-i110, with its fuel-injected single-cylinder engine, delivers up to 57km/l in fuel efficiency, and it can run on E20, a 20/80 blend of ethanol and petrol. But while the CZ-i110 has been designed for fuel efficiency, the yet unnamed Honda concept you see here has been tweaked for outright performance.

In keeping with its performance intent, the concept features USD forks, big brake discs, monoshock rear suspension and carbonfibre bodywork. Of course, there is no word yet on whether Honda will actually produce this machine or whether it’s only a one-off concept bike. More details as, when and if available… :-)
