In review: Honda CB110 Twister

I’ve been cruisin along ortigas extension for my daily office route. A Honda CB 110 overtook me with caution and politeness. Curious in my Hayate 125 I tailgate him. It seems the looks are good but the power is Less. Yes you are right this is only a 110cc bike. What the heck Honda  is thinking all about? They have rescaled the CB1000 and this tiny little big bike wannabe that is equipped with only a 110cc engine came about. Is this a big bike or an underbone? an alternative to the very expensive CBR 150 that can’t out run the Raider 150. What am I talking about here? It’s not because it can’t out run my Hayate for a reason (but actually yes) I could say its a slow bike. I was looking over my speedometer when I’m tailgating the Bike and it only registers a 100kph. I hear the engines roar and its too much. It seems the rider is squeezing to much on the throttle. I wonder how many juice did he made. Kidding.

I think this price is fair enough. I believe the speed thingy can be address from a wife variety of Borekits. Tuning a Underbone bike is much easier that a scooter. All you need to do is to upgrade to a borekit . A 150cc bore kit will do then some PNP and Big carb and that’s it. Sometimes Honda launch bikes that are weird and I don’t blame them. It has been a history to them when the not so good XRM dual sports came up and everyone is buying it. after all Suzuki Raider J came up also. hahahahhhaha…sometimes we Filipino should read more and observe more rather than buying a bike because your neighbor has. Be confident and read so you’ll understand.

What are the features of this Honda CB110?

I’d like to reiterate from Honda Philippines website.

Head turning style meets sporty power!
The CB110 takes the urban sports bike riding to a whole new level. Combining the power and sleek style, this revolutionary bike will forever change your riding experience!

-- I don’t see any head turning with this bike. Its an awful bike for a big bike wannabee.

--You wish to compare your HP with a 125? so here’s the suzuki Hayate’s HP[

You also mentioned 78.8km/l that’s too high…hmmmm so what is the average driving speed to attain this? 5km/l I better walk.
