Honda CT110 AG
one of the greats.Got my first ct100ag 30 years ago, were on dairy farm,other than normal maintenance and every young man riding it , it was still going but rusted out on the mud guards. what a bike. Moved into town and traded my four wheeler for -what i was told one of the last CT110AG 6volts ever made, the sales man said. any way, had for 8years now,for running around the city.Done 35000km now, never missed a bea t, had two back tyres and one front. run along the motorway at a good 80k. can do 90 but don't push it.Up hills back to 60km. its fine . bought home two truck battery's on the carrier today, every body was smiling. the wet clutch works so well when changing gears. when got this new bike had it under sealed , still looks like new. Is just the best in city traffic, you can dive in and out and park on the foot path, its not to big to up set the people. plus in nz people think you just another postie, i hope. Only changed spark once, but carry a spare. and something like a tyre pander, for if i get a puncture. Has been well worth it . Was a dear bike to buy cost 4700 dollars. So want to get my moneys worth. so far so good. I do use the high low ratio abit, when taking the dogs for around, Had no troubles.Was this review helpful?
Honda CT 110The humble CT 110 Postie. I thought a lot about what bike I wanted to commute to work on. Sports, dual sport, supermoto, tourer. Turns out that when you get to the nuts and guts of it the postie is all the commuter you'd need. I realised that I will come off this bike. It's going to be knocked over, bumped into and rained on. What bike could be cheaper to own and run than this. I work out t hat if I use $10 a week in fuel i'll be out of pocket less than $1000 per year all told on the road inc rego. Plus it's as cheap as chips to repair and service. Drum brakes, skinny tyres, simple bulletproof electrics, comfy seat, big rear rack. No expensive plastics or computers to go wrong. City traffic is now easy to deal with. Bus lanes and T2/3 here we come. It may not be very manly but under my helmet who cares. I am the stig. Will do 80kph no probs and blitzs at the lights. Not fast but fast enough for get around Sydney traffic.+ Easy of convenience, initail purchase and ownership costs, fuel efficient, easy to repair, heaps of parts, ergonomics,- Not fast or sexy1 person found this helpful, do you?
OKI have been riding a CBF250 for nine months before I was cut off and went to the ground. (Bike got written off) Thought a CT110 would be a good option while waiting to get my open licence and get the bike I really want. The bike was second hand and felt more like a push bike than motorbike. It made 70kph ok but did not make the 80kph claimed top speed, (I'm 80kgs). Once it got past 60kph it was re ally unstable and felt like I had to adjust it constantly so it wouldn't go off the road. Now to the brakes. It has drum brakes front and back. The second hand dealer took me for a ride (on his own CT110) up the back streets to open them up. (Yea right)He never went faster than 70 either. We turned around and I came close to him so as to over take him (to see if I could go faster than 70kph), but he started turning to pull over (to show me something) and I could not stop with the brakes, and I was too close. So get ready to laugh, I ran into him and we both fell over like a couple of idiots. I had only just bought a new $600 helmet the day before and my head hit the ground making it dangerous to use again. (the quickest $600 I have burnt to date!).
So if any one out there thinks it's a good idea to get a CT110 here is my advice. Don't take a piece of machinery desined to go no faster than 20kph up and down gutters delivering letters, and expect to use it in place of a real motorcycle! My CBF250 was way better. I felt really safe on it even taking steep lean angles,sometimes enough to scrape the pegs.
I know people tour on CT110s and they are known for their reliability and very low running costs. If you plan to go over 60kph, just be careful.+ Cost, from purchase price to running costs.- stability, speed, brakes.6 people found this helpful, do you?
Questions & AnswersHi mate. To be entirely honest I have no idea about the legality of registration. The bikes should have a compliance plate on the near side or triple clamp bearing tube. Is the bike previously stolen?BErica replied on Jun 05, 2014
can a bigger front sprocket be fitted on a ct110 AG (hi and low gears)Richard asked on Mar 08, 2014
I don't see why not. Just be aware that gearing it up with a front sprocket with more teeth will give it a higher top speed at the expense of low down torque.
Switching it over to the low range will still give you more grunt for slow going, but it will not be quite as torquey as it was before.A Trowel replied on May 02, 2014
how many have been mademarcelpiat asked on Jan 02, 2014
Hey mate, I'm unsure how many have been made to date. Hundreds of thousands of units in the CT110 guise. The "CT" part I believe is the "Cub Trail" harking back to the early Honda singles like the 50cc Supercub and the trail 70s and 90s of the 1960's i think. The AG part denotes it was intended for use on farm, AGricultural, geddit! Hope it helpsBErica replied on Jan 04, 2014
