“Great Little Bike”

Written on: 13/04/2014 by BeckhamShort17 (1 review written)

I love love love my honda reflex! Gas mileage is great, always starts. Handles well, and gives a soft, cushy ride with it's oversized seat. Not too heavy to pick up if it's tipped over. Wind is a r-e-a-l problem though, because it's so light. Wish a 20 mph wind or semi wake didn't throw you all over the road… Read Full Review

“Glad I purchased it! can't go wrong”

Written on: 03/10/2013 by AlexPP (1 review written)

Purchased a 2002 Reflex in March 2013 with 16,000 miles on it. Being a newbie, I was looking for a good starter bike and a friend recommended I stay with Honda, Yamaha, or Suzuki. I choose the Reflex based on the rave reviews others had for it and that I thought it would be the easiest to learn on since it is lighter than the 400 cc models from Suzuki and Yamaha. After about 1,500 miles thus far, I can say that it was a great choice. Gets great gas mileage (65-75 mpg) , has good acceleration… Read Full Review

“I Love it More Than My Sportster”

Written on: 26/04/2013 by JustAsIseeIt (1 review written)

As a fluke, I bought a 7 year old 2006 Reflex 250 recently, mainly because I can't pass up a bargain. I didn't initially have plans to own it, but after a few trips around the block, there is no way I'm selling this little jewel. I can't explain it, especially to other hog owners, but I prefer riding the Reflex over my 2009 Sportster 1200. Go figure. Now that I've had it a couple of weeks, would I buy it again? My answer is, 'Yes', and probably at twice the price… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/09/2010

I have a 1996 Honda Freeway in Japan that I've ridden for 5 years whenever we're there. I liked it so much I bought a 2007 used Reflex a couple years ago with only 300 miles on it. The old Freeway is comparable to the Reflex in size and design with the same size engine. Funny thing is I have the same problem with both of them. They both are hard to get running after they sit for a while. They both are starved for gas and in both cases I end up needing to get to the carb and squirt some gas into… Read Full Review

I have the same problem - starting after sitting for a while, but it seems that the battery is always dying. Two new batteries so far and they become unchargeable on the trickle charger. Looking for help myself; that's why I am out here,

The addition of ethanol (alcohol) to US Fuels in the past 5-10 years has made vapor-locking a real problem on many older carbureted designs. Makes 'em very hard to start once they're warm. That's possibly what's going on. Try pouring a gallon of ice water on the carburetor some time when you're having the problem and see if it starts immediately. Or ask your local gasoline DISTRIBUTOR if there's anywhere in your area you can buy alcohol free fuel.

“After many years of riding motorcycles the scooter bug...”

Written on: 21/08/2010

After many years of riding motorcycles the scooter bug has hit hard. This little bike is just a joy...nimble and well made. The 73 mpg makes for guilt-free riding and I just can't stay off this thing.

I weigh 215 lbs and honestly feel it has adequate power, however highway riding is not my pleasure. Roads posted for 55 mph are fine, but I do not like to push a 250 cc motor, even if this Honda engine can take it.

Written on: 30/03/2010

This thing is HUGE. It is WAYYY too big. It's got a fair bit of power, and decent enough storage, but besides being probably the ugliest two wheeled vehicle I have ever seen, it's just too big. It's built more as a commuter than a touring bike, and it shines there, it gets reasonable mileage in the 60-70mpg range even around town. It'd be fine for touring too because you dont need to go 80mph. On most highways 75 is speeding anyways. And the 4 stroke Honda engine is bulletproof.
Really though… Read Full Review

I have never heard anyone denograte a Reflex before you. Having owned a BMW, British bikes, Harley and many others I find my Reflex the most practical of them all for around and short trips. Are you riding Mopeds or what? It is only 360lbs. I have only put gas in it and changed the oil. It doesn't get easier than that. One hundred percent reliable! Just what do you ride???

How can you CHOOSE to buy a bike that's too big and then slam it? I don't understand. The review is for the bike, not your stupidity.

Written on: 06/03/2010

Have owned over 20 different motorcycles ranging from 250 to 1500 cc. I have to say this is my first scooter. I find myself looking to upshift on the freeway, but that's only because I am trying to go past 80 mph. It is totally reliable and easy to maintain. This scooter has brought a new found respect for the scooter world and I would recommend that any motorcyclist give the super scooters a try for a week and you'll be sold on them. Storage, comfort, 70 mpg, ease of use, affordability and… Read Full Review

Great transportation vehicle that is practical and look cool. I ride a ZX6R Kawasaki Ninja, and sold that bike and kept this Honda Reflex 250. Plus the people I love prefer riding with this over sports bike any day. :D

“ I have a 2004 Reflex. I ride almost daily and commute...”

Written on: 21/12/2008 by prh142 (1 review written)

I have a 2004 Reflex. I ride almost daily and commute 40 miles each day. I won't say it is a great bike on the highway. Here in Florida the highway traffic tends to run at 75+, The Reflex seems happiest at 55-60 on the highway. Around town, it's probably the best bike on the road. Plenty of room for storing a helmet, books or a bag of groceries. I get about 63 mpg which considering the 18 mpg I get from my truck is pretty incredible!
Took the bike in for an 8k maintenance check a few months… Read Full Review

The Honda Reflex is the perfect around town scooter. If you want to ride on the higway, get a bigger bone, A Silverwing, a Burgman or a motorcycle. But if you ride is 10-20 miles around town the reflex is a fine ride. Easy to handle and lots of fun… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/06/2008

I have driven over 1500 miles and I have nothing bad to say about the reflex. I know that a few have made comments about the lack of speed on the highway. This unit can keep up with traffic on the interstate 65-75 mph however anyone buying this bike should know that this is not a touring bike, basicly made for city use. It is true that it has a breakdown between 30-40 mph, if you try to push it, if you just apply a constant roll on the throttle it will be less noticed. I started out getting… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/05/2008 by michaelmgz (1 review written)

The Honda Reflex is my 4th scooter in over 30 years, and THREE of them were Honda. I strayed, briefly, to another brand (a chinese brand called Tank), but regretted it immediately. The price and MPG was great, but, the poor design, and shoddy assembly left a lot to be desired. I always felt unsure and worried that there'd be an unpleasant surprise waiting for me whenever I fired it up.
Ive never felt this with any of my Hondas!… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/04/2008

I own a 2006 Honda Reflex and I would recommend this scooter for any rider, especially beginners. If you are looking for speed, this is not your bag. Every single aspect of this scooter is great - except for the speed. I'm thinking about getting some of the roller weights removed for some higher rpms (I've read that this is supposed to greatly increase acceleration). If Honda makes a 400 or 500cc reflex, I'll be the first to buy. I give it a 9 out of 10. If the acceleration was better I would… Read Full Review
