    Here's a few pics of my Honda Vision i won on ebay back in september.I last owned one of these as a spotty teenager in the early 90's and loved it so wanted another one to kick off my riding career again.bought it mainly to use to commute to and from work with the price of fuel on the up and up as my other vehicle is a 1998 Mitsubishi Shogun V6 which is great but not the most economical car on the planet,but i love it.

    Very nice condition for its age! A perfect example of Honda quality. Any tuning plans for it or will you keep it original?

    the vision - vision x - medlody deluxe in the uk, but over in america they were called the honda aero 50. horse power was around 3.9hp at 6000rpms and 3.5lbs-ft torque at 5000rpms. it depends as the motors changed and some were unable to carry aftermarket carbs due to a funny bolt hole layout for the manifold so you ended up stuck with a stock carb or unless you made your own aftermarket carb manifold. some models could be fitted with 65cc big bore kits and pull around 50-55mph ( 87 onwards). they stopped producing the vision in early 90's when honda changed to fourstroke motors ( honda GY6 motor )

    * Width: 24.6” / 625mm
    * Height: 38.0” / 965mm
    * Wheelbase: 44.5” / 1130mm
    * Dry weight: 121.3 lbs / 55 kg
    * Max Load: 180 lbs / 82 kg

    * Final Reduction Ratio: 11.097:1
    * Seat height: 27.2” / 690mm
