    Hey all,

    I've noticed that a lot of Australia Post riders are now on the newer updated Honda CC110 (replacing the classic CT110) as a 'Cross Cub' version.

    Does anyone know where I can buy one? Is it available for general sale, or do we have to wait until the first batch on the roads now are up at auction after a few thousand k's?

  2. We have the nbc110 "super cub", that last red one looks exactly the same, bar colours. A lot better bike than i was expecting. No idea when or if they will be sold sorry.

  4. Except at the auspost auctions I doubt that you will be able to buy one. No one bought the ct110 when they offered it for sale new a few years ago. Honda wont bother again, especially until they see how this goes on the second hand market.

    I believe Sym makes a copy. Symba i think its called

  5. The thing is, I can't see anything Japanese production motorcycles have that would contravene Australian rego ADRs, so you should be just able to chuck one in a box & ship it over to Aust, sell it, rego it & Bob's your uncle.
    What's Honda's problem with that formula?

  6. What are the major differences between a Japanese and Australian bike in terms of homologations/certification/regulations? Is it that big of a difference?

  7. That is such a difficult question.

    If you want to do it that way then I would go talk to an importer that imports jap vehicles to get one for you. I wouldnt expect change from $5k though.

    Seriously go look at the symba to tie you over for a couple years until auspost starts to get rid of theirs.

  8. I wouldn't mind seeing a "symba" next to the new posty, just to compare the quality of parts.
    There's some real dodgy looking bits on these things - mainly the chain (tiny, no rings, has to checked every 500km) and spokes (flex way to easy). The rear could use less pre-load and more dampening as well.
    Fun to dead ride though :D
    Sorry about the double post earlier as well, my net shit itself a bit and I can't go back and edit the posts.

  9. I don't think they would sell it here to consumers, it's meant for countries like vietnam etc and i assume honda believes that we would not be interested in such a bike for daily use as there are already plenty of scooters saturating the market
