As wuyang rightly states my vision is incredibly bad on inclines. My sons zip 50 4t was amazingly superior and did 30 mph everywhere.
Echoing what AE86 says, I'm now wondering if there's a flat spot built in so it passes emissions tests. It manifests itself on some small scoots as a faint hesitation somewhere between 30 and 40 mph on the flat, particularly if there is a headwind. It might be that it affects the Vision more on hills.
Whatever, you won't have the same issues with an SH300. My only gripe with the old model was that I couldn't fit my size 12s in the footwell without maintaining a sitting position like a penguin. They've improved that significantly, I believe.
As for the Honda vision 110,it does what it does,no more,no less.
Owned two sh300's, neither ever cut out.....ever,,,,,,and I never had any problems with my seat......odd. The early sh300's have had a recall, because of the stalling.....maybe the ones which stalled never got took back to Honda.
Have now ridden two sh125's, an carb sh125 and a inj 05 reg one. The carb one seemed more peppy and flew up hills the 05 inj one felt to have more low down torque and felt a more luxurious bike.
The vision 110 was nice, but short sharp hills see a good 50 flying by.........I wonder how the 110 lead compares to the vision up hill.
Richie did you have a favourite in your sh125's?
