Honda visionary scooter motorbike. Honda motorcycles from Grantham Honda Bikes are an excellent transportation alternative, provided a few cautions are observed. They are very compact and easy to use, as well as very affordable. They tend to be economical in terms of mileage, especially in terms of the Honda Vision line. Compactness also brings problems.
Storage space is at a premium, although it’s plenty for trips to the grocery store and back. There is only room for one passenger. While highly efficient, its range is around 150 miles due to the small fuel tank. Speeds reach around 50 or 60 mph, which might make highway impossible depending on what your local traffic is like. If all you need is a fast and fun way for you and possibly guests to get around town, a scooter might be just what you’ve been looking for.
In terms of quality and user friendliness, the Honda Vision 50, like the one on Grantham Honda Bikes, is hard to beat. As mentioned, the range is about 150 miles on a full tank. A full tank, in this case, is a gallon. This means the Vision can achieve up to 150 mpg, something that is unattainable by any car on the market today. Getting mpg that high requires significant restraint on the throttle, though if you tend to let it go you can still expect to get around 120 or 130 mpg.
The transfer of power from the throttle to the engine and then the rear wheel is quick and responsive, allowing for deft maneuvers while in traffic and ample acceleration after stopping at a red light. Braking is done via the handle bar and utilizes Honda’s Combined Braking System. Basically this means that a single press will activate the brakes on the front and rear wheels simultaneously. It will stop where and when you need it.
Optional features include an alarm, extra storage, a smart bag that comes with that extra storage, knuckle protection, windscreen and scooter covers. In terms of maintenance, a yearly inspection is sufficient for most drivers. The total cost, even with insurance, will amount to $3,000 to $4,000 to get from the dealer to the street. The quality and reliability we expect from Honda cars is still present in the two-wheeled version.
