The Honda Wave is a learner friendly underbone bike with large wheels and scooter styling. It’s powered by a Euro 3 compliant air cooled 109.1 cc four stroke single cylinder engine, producing 8.4 bhp at 7,500 rpm and maximum torque at 5,500 rpm.
The Honda Wave line has proven to be a multi-purpose two-wheeler. Aside from being a daily shuttle, this iconic motorcycle is used for business purposes like deliveries. Through the years, the Honda Wave has built a reputation as a sturdy workhorse resulting in many owners keeping them for a long time.
As the design plainly reveals, the Wave 110S is more of a utility bike than a race-inspired machine. From the decals to the semi-body fairings, it’s obvious that Honda designers applied a minimalist theme to this bike to cut costs.
The headlight and front cowl exudes a balance of simplicity and functionality, although the sharp-looking taillight with the integrated signal lights enhance the styling on the Wave’s tail end. Overall it looks sleek with no protruding signal lights on both front and rear.

Having proper gears rather than a CVT gearbox makes it somewhere between a 125 cc bike and a 125 cc traditional scooter.
For storage you get a 7.1 litre compartment under the seat, which isn’t quite enough for a full face helmet and there’s a chain guard as standard.
The 17″ 5-spoke wheels take a 70/90 tyre at the front and 80/90 at the rear.
