Honda Helix (CN250) Motorcycles Reviews on Cycle Insider

honda helix review

The V-matic transmission is an absolute pleasure to use! All the work I've done is tires, brakes just because I was in there , rebuilt the rear clutch and oil changes. I am 63 years young and am having a blast with my new 2005 Helix. I've ridden many motorcycles and also have a Genuine Stella. I do not like the Reflex's dashboard near as well as the Helix's. The gas gauge is also more linear than most, possibly due to a compensating computer algorithm. Increasing appeal to the older customers, third party accessories such as sidecars and tricycle kits were available. I have had the scooter over 70 mph as indicated by the dash , but suspect it's about 2-3 mph less than that.

Ya, thats right no Swapo back. Another gauge reminds Helix owners that it is nearing oil change time. The front suspension was a Bottom link; 3. The first was a '87 we bought from private party and kept for 4 years. The second blind man feels the elephant's trunk and says the beast is shaped like a snake. Still, an extra five mph or so would be nice for those impromptu top speed races with Winnebagos.

2007 Honda Helix

Don't expect to sneak up on any sportbikes though, because the Helix's pogoing soft suspension limits the fun at, uh, higher speeds. However, the interesting thing is that the scooter was only known as Helix in the United States but, in other parts of the world, it became popular under the Fusion or Spazio name. The product was so successful that as of 2006, it is still in production. Therefore it must be a scooter. To find out I decided to put the bike through my standard testing procedure to find out exactly where its strengths and weaknesses lay. The first grabs its tail and says an elephant is like a rope. If there is something for humble motorcycle testers to learn from this story, it is that we mustn't judge a bike by our initial impressions.

Here's Why The Honda Helix Is The BEST SCOOTER Ever Made

The 2004 Honda Helix also comes with standard lockable storage and a standard rear rack as well. And with a luggage bag on the back seat to lean against, the riding position is so comfy you can travel hundreds of miles; the biggest danger is falling asleep :. Upon receiving it, I immediately noticed the difference in quality. I was able to do most of the restoration myself. This bike has a lot of practicality to it, too! It was mostly the body that got tore up. One of the best features of this scooter is the rear storage compartment which can hold more items than one might imagine. This will be remedied with a backrest I purchased recently.

It is user friendly with the automatic transmission and electric start. My body did not get thrown forward. In Europe, the Japanese put Italian makers under pressure to improve their scooters' capabilities and reliability. I heard about one guy whose only vehicle was a Honda Helix much like me , and he has around 150,000 miles, and it was still running! Given the nice sized trunk bigger than that of many motorcycles and a backpack, I can haul home about 6-8 bags of groceries. Furthermore, the understressed 250cc liquid cooled single cylinder engine could take the machine on 1000 mile tours with no issues whatsoever. Very little internal damage occurred.

2007 Honda Helix

This bike has a lot of practicality to it, too! However, production within Canada was halted after the initial production year of 1986. No, but I might stream N64 Goldeneye at some point. Cons: Needs a tad more power another 50+ cc. It is here, splitting lanes and zipping through urban congestion that the Helix shines. Halogen headlights and rearview mirrors are also standard on the 2004 model. Hydraulic front disc brake and lightweight drum rear brake offer excellent stopping power. My husband all but insisted that we buy it and sell my motorcycle.
