Is it a good scooter for carrying a passenger?
It has a twIn seat and rear footpegs. As far as power is concerned, the door has very good low end power in fact you may be surprised at this. Ideal for two people really.. Don't get the 50cc model though.
91 octane, 95, 98, or E10 fuel or doesnt it matter?
Yeah agree with Raysa. Dont like E10 but pretty sure it would run on it if you must. Often run the higher spec fuels, probably doesnt need it but if only adds a few cents with the frugal use and small tank.
Hello. I have Honda NSC110 Dio (for just a month) and I like it very much. I do have few issues though. One is: I am 150 cm tall and generally I am 'small' = small palms. I can use the break handles on both sides but they are a little too far for me to reach them - I need to use just my finger tips rather then, say, the first knuckle. Is there a way to get the break levers closer to the handle bars?
Is it a belt driven or a shalf drivenot?
It is a fully enclosed constantly variable transmission, so it has a vee belt with two variable pitch pulleys. It is very positive, smooth & quiet in operation.
I'm planning to buy a first scooter. I'm 4'8 ft tall so about 148cm. I'll move to Parkes and requires a scooter to commute to work. But to get to the workplace, I need to be onto A39 highway. Do you think honda dio 110cc can handle A39 highway? I have L license which max speed is only 80km/hr. And A39 highway is relatively not a busy highway. Do you think its worth it to get this? Thanks heaps!
For highway riding.. you need something with a bit more power incase you need to get yourself out of a dangerous situation.. maybe take a look at the Yamaha BeeWee YW125. Has slightly more go for highway driving/riding. Depends on your budget of course. The Yamaha's seat height is only 2cm higher then the Honda Dio.. so being vertically challenged.. should still suit your needs. The Yamaha has dual rear shock absorbers which would be much better for country roads. Either way.. love the Dio :)
Absolutely. I regularly ride mine at over 100km per hour and am usually ahead of other traffic as I find this the safest way to ride. I also ride mine fairly regularly on trips of over 100kms and find it has more than enough power to get out of any tricky situations. Honda is a solid brand and I would definitely recommend you go with the D10. I hope this helps Stev. Happy scootering.
Im 1.82 meters and weight over 105kg...I was going t by the Suzuki address 110 but having test driven both...the dio is far better..I have done over 90kph but at over 100kg and im very happy with the performance. To be honest, I would like to see an option to turn off the headlight, It does have driving lights after all.
Very good though
how to turn off head light i couldnt see any switch in real scooter ?
Do you think that the honda dio 110cc is a good choice for a first timer?
Hi Danni, sure it is. It was my first scooter having only ridden once before on a Honda 50cc for my learners test. Its a great ride and its still my primary mode of transportation. Take care and be careful when riding over tram tracks if you're in the inner suburbs- the skinny tyres dont help. Peter.
