3. Model details


3.1 Styling

Superior styling

The machine’s appearance is dominated by the large-diameter 17" wheels front and rear, which give a solid and purposeful stance on the road while also contributing to its excellent on-road handling. The scooter’s sculpted bodywork clearly communicates the advanced technology that lies beneath.


Integrated storage compartment

The Wave 110i is 709mm wide and contains a large 7.1-litre internal storage space. Accessed by lifting up the seat, this compartment is large enough to securely hold some varieties of open-faced helmet.

3.2 Ergonomic Design

Comfortable riding position

The Wave 110i is a comfortable machine to ride for all journeys. The slim dimensions of the body also play a role in this comfort and ease of use, making it easy for the rider to put down a steadying foot when coming to a stop.


Easy-to-read instruments

The Wave 110i uses a very simple instrument display that communicates important information at a glance. The display also features a gear positioning light, making it clear when neutral has been selected.


3.3 Chassis

Superb manoeuvrability

With its single-cylinder engine, the Wave 110i’s natural environment is busy city streets but it is equally at home on twisty rural lanes. The vehicle’s compact chassis makes it manageable in both riding environments. The geometry is designed for agility, with the relatively short 1227mm wheelbase helping to provide a full 45° of steering angle. Together these factors give the rider the confidence to turn quickly and easily along city streets and rural roads alike. The strong 220mm front disc brake and powerful 110mm rear drum brake provide secure and effective braking in all conditions.

Built to tackle any kind of road

The Wave 110i is built around a rugged steel backbone frame; providing rigidity for safe, confident riding. It also allows for increased ergonomic efficiency, maximising storage space and fuel tank size. The 26mm telescopic front suspension forks offer a secure ride on a range of road surfaces, whilst not detracting from the nimble nature of the machine.


3.4 Engine

Rugged, easy-to-use single-cylinder engine

The Wave 110i is powered by a simple yet powerful single-cylinder four-stroke engine with PGM-FI fuel injection. The fuel injection system and electric start function mean easy choke-less starting and no hassle – the Wave 110i is ready to ride at the push of a button. The four-speed transmission makes for an equally effortless ride. The drive chain is also protected from road dirt and debris by the chaincase; meaning improved reliability and reduced maintenance.


Clean, quiet and usable power

The Wave 110i has a precise fuel injection system which uses an oxygen sensor in the exhaust system to constantly optimise the engine’s running, making for quiet operation and low exhaust gas emissions; compliant with the EURO 3 standards.


Highly fuel-efficient

The NF110 uses a simple and highly efficient SOHC single-cylinder engine to deliver superb economy of up to 160.2mpg in normal riding conditions. This allows the rider to travel up to 131 miles between fuel stops.


4. Colours

The 2012 Wave 110i will be launched in two colours.


- Pearl Procyon Black

- Candy Lucid Red


5. Model history

The humble Honda Super Cub has mobilised millions of people the world over since its release in 1958. Rugged, affordable, fun to ride and above all easy to use, the Cub has succeeded because it perfectly satisfies the needs of those who ride it, and because it enriches their daily lives, making everyday journeys swift and convenient. Often the first taste of powered personal transport for many of its riders, the Super Cub has always offered the same intuitive user experience as a bicycle but with far greater speed, convenience and load-carrying ability.


While the world has changed a great deal since the Super Cub’s launch, the demand for affordable and reliable personal transport has not diminished. Ever-expanding cities and rising fuel costs mean that society’s requirement for convenient and affordable mobility is stronger than ever.

It is against this backdrop that Honda has developed the Wave 110i, the latest model in a line that can trace its evolution back to Soichiro Honda’s original Super Cub. With clean, responsive and almost maintenance-free four-stroke power, together with carefully considered ergonomic design details the 2012 Wave 110i is ready to mobilise a new generation of riders.
