Anybody ridden one? Just wondering people's thoughts on them. Ridden plenty of innovas and Cubs but never had a go on the wave.....curious.

I have a 17' Wave 110 and an 18' Wave 125 (Innova). I'm small and I like the Wave better for the slightly lighter weight. It's not much, but I can feel the difference. I also like the more rev happy motor which has power passed 6-7k rpm, vs. the 125s drop after high rpm.

Only thing I don't like about the Wave is that the injection (mines a carb) feels too linear and smooth while the carb has that little punch at low throttle, kind of like the C90. Being nit picky. Speeds up to 40 mph feel very nice and stable vs. the 90. I've never taken it faster than 45 though.

Approaching 10k miles, no breakdowns, dirty carb once and one headlamp bulb is all it's needed.

Thanks......look cracking little bikes. I did wonder about the revs as the 110's I've checked out on YouTube did seem to rev well like the c90 which appeals to me. There's a fella on YouTube who takes his off the beaten track, looks standard apart from the chunky tyres.
