2010 Honda Elite Scooter Review

by David
(Montgomery, AL)

I just recently purchased (August) a new 2010 Honda Elite 110 (NXH110WH) scooter and am pretty happy with my purchase. I've already put over 1000 miles on it with no problems except a funny squeak that I can't quite find.

  1. Electronic Fuel Injection
  2. Huge under seat compartment
  3. Great gas mileage (70-80 miles)
  4. Water cooled
  5. Starts up easily and quickly
  6. Gas tank opening in the floor... very smart... with a spill hole so you won't be standing in gasoline if you overfill your tank.

  1. 108ccs is not enough for me, should have been 125-150ccs. $3000 should get you a few more ccs. My wife rides a Vespa LX150 and she can dust my butt any time she wants
  2. Top Speed at 45, after that way too scary and shaky.
  3. No kickstart
  4. The Honda Genuine Windshield and rear box prices will make you search long and hard for after market and clone items.

I bought the 2 year extended warranty and a service agreement with the local dealer. Highly advise "non-mechanical" types, like myself, buy the extra protection.

for Scooters, efficiency and comfort are more important
by: Anonymous

Seems to me the advantage of Hondas (and Japanese scooter makes in general) is they all seem to have electronic fuel injection - so they seem to get more mpg.

Currently the local Honda dealer is advertising his Elites at $800 off the MSRP. That's about $2200 dollars. For that, you get nationwide dealer network, 2 year warranty and advertised 110 mpg. The Elite will get up over 45mph.

That's all a scooter needs to do - that and accept a full face helmet in its underseat storage. The Elite does all the minimums. At $2200, That's a pretty good deal.

For what it's worth I like the Elite's styling better than the 150, and having sat on both of them, found the Elite more comfortable for my 6'2" frame. But if I have a choice, THE scooter to get is the PCX because it has the most optimum compromise between styling, efficiency and performance.

I want everyone to have access to transportation that gets them over 100mpg. I think that's important for the economy overall and family budgets specifically, not to mention the environment.

I have a 150cc scooter. I like it, it gets up to 62 mph, but it gets around 75 to 80 mpg and I find myself refueling after only 80 miles. I want better than that kind of mileage. If I want better performance, I'm not sure I stay with a scooter.

Nice Scoot, But
by: Jim Zeiser

The Kymco Super 8, Lance Cali Classic or SYM Fiddle II are less or the same. They have bigger engines, are faster and will last just as long. Plus the Super 8 will give your wife fits. Brand names are nice, horsepower is better.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...
