So glad I came across this. I am just collecting my Vision 110 today and the one concern I have is its lack of road presence. Also, unlike the PCX, there is no dedicated owners club - or even a Haynes manual.

Hi Andrew,

Congratulations on your new purchase. Don’t worry about the lack of Haynes manual. I have a near complete workshop manual for the latest model Vision 110 so if you need any tolerances, valve clearance specs or torque settings etc just drop me a pm and I’ll share with you the info you need. I also have a diagnostic lead for Honda bikes and scooters and it works a treat with the fault code section I downloaded. We recently tried it on my workmate’s Vision and correctly diagnosed a faulty V speed sensor.
I’m in the process of playing with a spare 110cc esp engine I have in the garage, turning it into a 130cc to see if bigger bore and injector gives a little more without changing the head or the exhaust. We will see......
Best regards
Scoots

Andrew,
Just another thought about the road presence issue on a small scooter. I have also changed over to a different H4 LED headlight bulb made by OSRAM. It’s called an LEDriving H4 and only consumes 14 watts leaving a bit extra power for heated goodies if you ride in the cold. The beauty of this bulb is the ballast resistor is built into the bulb itself so there are no issues with finding a place to house the extra box in the power lead.
Hope that helps

Hey Andrew,
Just curious why you went for the Vision over the PCX. I'm currently debating which to purchase when I've got my CBT. There's not a lot in it money wise if you can get a good pre-reg deal, and you get more road presence, LED lights, more storage and ABS front brake... it also opens up the A1 licence if you want to do it.

What were the pros for the Vision the swayed you?

Cheers.

I Went for the vision 110 because I had one before a 2013 reg in white,brilliant little scoot,and reading on hear how the new one is better and I got a pre-reg one cheaper with free mounting plate and free top-box and in red.
But there is also the Honda sh 125 mode.too

Cheers Richie,
I definitely haven't ruled it out, booked in for taster and CBT during Easter break on a Vision, so will have better idea of what I'm after then. I've looked at the SH mode too, though most places are selling them at pretty much the same price as PCX, which seems like the better bike.... Though self servicing would be much more of a pain on the PCX by the looks of it. Assuming LED upgrades are cheap the Vision would probably be perfect

Well now you’ve mentioned the performance is better, I’ll give a little update on mine. I’ve now done just shy of 10,000 miles through all the weather that Scotland has. Where I live is a road I pass regularly and it’s flooded deep and quite often through the winter. So far this year I have had two technical problems with mine. The first was a CKP sensor covered under warranty (crankshaft position sensor). The second happened just this week, a throttle position sensor which led to rough idle and a drop in performance. To be honest I put both of these faults down to constant riding through a flood up and over the floorboards in winter. It’s not designed to do that but it’s done it without complaint and besides, I diagnosed both easily with my diagnostic lead and reset the TP sensor with it too.( you have to short the oil temp sensor at the same time).
This has now led me to have a bit of a go eeking out a little more performance so I did some research and found out the throttle body size and standard injector capacity. Quite restrictive by all accounts so as I’m at home for the next month or so I ordered a larger throttle body and bigger capacity injector to see if I can spice the Vision up a little. New parts will be in the post tomorrow and should be here in a week or so depending on the post.
If anyone is interested I shall let you know how it goes
