I have had the Honda SCV Lead for one year now and have put 18,000 extra kilometers on the clock. In all that time I had just one problem - a snapped CVT belt. Why it snapped I do not know as it was changed at 25,000 kms and the new one broke at 31000! Although I have had 85kph going downhill on a long road I find the little scooter will cruise all day happily at 60-65 kph without using oil and offering wonderful fuel consumption. It starts first time every time and I have used it every day… Read Full Review

A good little scooter, very small and light. Acceleration is very good - it'll beat most cars away from the lights (unless they're really going for it). Top speed is not so good. Bank on a cruising speed of 45MPH maximum, the variator keeps it moving along on the hills well enough. Performance wise it's a little faster than a C90 most of the time and quite a bit faster than a C90 up the hills. Servicing is easy, screw and locknut tappets and a litre or so of 10W40 oil and you're done. Handling… Read Full Review

I have it already one and a half year and it works perfectlym, till now it hasn't any problem exept that it burns a little oil after 2000 km. I would recomend it to everyone that wants an economical, powerful and safe motorcycle. I live in a village of Greece that has many uphills, I am 95 kilos and it can transfer me through these uphills easily. The only thing that I don't like is that it's not very fast only once I runned with 85 kilometers per hour and since then I can only reach 80 km. The… Read Full Review

I have had a Honda SCV100 Lead since April. I have had only 1 problem with it in that when it is a hot day the engine will stall if I stop at traffic lights. I overcome this by slightly revving the engine. Apart from this problem (not much of one with the British summer!)I have travelled over 3,000 miles both locally and on long journeys of about 150 miles without any other problems… Read Full Review

38k miles, not one break down or serious issue at all in four years of ownership and it cost me just fuel, oil and tyres & two drive belts (changed at service). These little underated scooters are what Honda do best. I know you can get a 125 Chinese scooter with disc brakes, stylish plastics, & a little more power, and free top boxes etc for quite a bit less, but would it last as long as one of these? I doubt it very much. It's not the most powerful of scooters, nor is it high tech either… Read Full Review

Great bike. I previously owned a Suzuki 400 Burgman and did find The Honda a bit slow at first but appreciate it's lightness and fuel economy. It is actually good fun to ride. I am always amazed by how much stuff it will carry. I have had bags under the seat, in the topbox, strapped to the rear seat and hanging from the hook in the footwell. I then had a backpack with more stuff. I have used it for short local trips, regular 40 mile round trips to visit family and so far, one 400 mile round… Read Full Review

Had my Honda Lead 108cc for 8 months now and have done 3000 miles.
Very reliable and cheap to run. About 100 miles to gallon. Im 15 stone and can get top speed 52 mph and is very fast in getting there. First service 600 miles costs £70 at honda dealer and second sevice 2500 miles cost £110. This is my first scooter im a car driver age 40 years so took a bit of getting used to. The only problem with the small wheels is the pot holes and drain covers. The under seat storage is perfect for 2 bike… Read Full Review

My SCV 100 was the first scooter I had ridden for 40 years.(Age and 750 Kawasakis are not a good mix.) Appreciated good handling and automatic drive, the perfomance was perfectly adequate for commuting and the excellent windscreen even made wet journeys bearable. 90mpg, 45mph, £15 tax and £1250 new with the screen, its a snip.
Age demands some grumpiness: The engine 'feels' weak BUT,it has been totally reliable, and it needs 12" wheels and better rear suspension to cope with the potholed cart… Read Full Review

I have had the honda lead 110 for only 2 weeks now and it is an excellent little machine for my work and play.Very quick acceleration and a top speed of about 55mph. Very low maintainance and good ride makes this a great first scooter.
No problems so far ive done about 350 miles in 2 weeks.
Fuel consumption is excellent, it costs about £5 to fill. Storage is excellent with plenty of space under the seat. Ride quality is good plus comfy which is a bonus.
Totally Recommended… Read Full Review

Having picked up my brand new lead110 in march it has been excellent until 3 weeks ago it would not start.The honda garage where i bourght it said it was the starter motor which they done under warranty but took 2 weeks to do and they would not give me a hire bike.My first service cost me 70pounds from where i got the bike which is 30 miles away and the honda dealership 3 miles away said it would be 200 pounds just because i did not buy it from them.CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF THEY ARE ALLOWED TO DO… Read Full Review

Had the scooter just over a year now and have had no mechanical issues with it.Top speed is between 40-45 depending on incline or wind. Get about 90 miles to a tank 6 litres but i do tend to ride it flat out everywhere,economy does improve if ridden smoother.I ride to work everyday which is a 30 mile round trip and the scooter is comfortable enough.I wish i had bought a 125cc but thats because i would like a bit more speed, acceleration is ok though… Read Full Review

Bought it to travel to work and still using it. Have bumped the front fairing and right side front panel so if you can help I would appreciate it. Thanks. John Thomas. It is quite sturdy and very nippy. Light to handle, easy to drive as its twist and go, my first one of this type… Read Full Review

HONDA LEAD 108cc scooter
I have had mine 6 months now and it is an excellent little machine for my work. With quick acceleration and a top speed of 52mph. Very low maintainance and good ride makes this a great first scooter/bike.
Very few problems with it, the only one being a slow start when it got to -7 degrees and the indicator froze on once.
Fuel consumption is OK, it costs £4.50 to fill which lasts me a week or so on my 6 miles a day. Storage is excellent with plenty of space under the… Read Full Review

I have had this bike for 13 months, the built quality is perfect and it's the most reliable vehicle i've owned. I've done 4000 miles so far and there hasn't been a problem, or any sign of a problem so far. The only problem with the Honda is that when you indicate, it makes a clicking noise like you're in a car. But let's be fair, that's petty! Top Class!… Read Full Review

Having recently bought my Honda Lead 110 brand new from Rochdale Honda, i can honestly say this bike appears to be brilliant.
However, after reading other peoples' reviews, i do struggle to reach 100mpg, and get to about 90mpg. this though, could be due to my over-twisting arm utilising its speed away from the traffic lights, it leaves cars for dead, but, when mine reaches 48 / 49/ 50 mph, after about 5 seconds, it does start to drag, and feels as though its struggling, but overall… Read Full Review
