Who remembers this little gem? If you were born in the 80’s You’re most likely to remember your dad or someone else owning one of these, there’s a very good chance this is the bike you learned to ride on. Many years later and Honda is still producing the CG110 and although the technology used to produce the motorcycle has improved the shape is still reminiscent of the old 80’s bike.
Honda decided to expand the market for the CG110 all the way to Nigeria. This makes a whole lot of business sense for Honda because the congestion and sheer amount of small capacity motorcycles already to be found in Nigeria, the reliability of the Honda and the relatively cheap price tag of 100 000 naira (roughly R6549) should make them sell like hotcakes.
In addition to the CG110, Honda introduced and began sales of two updated 125cc-class models named Ace CB125 and Ace CB125-D which underwent a minor model change. Since their market introduction on September 29, 2011, Ace CB125 has been well received for its excellent fuel economy and practical utility and Ace CB125-D has been well received for its excellent rider comfort and cargo capacity made possible by the adoption of a long seat.
By adding an eagerly awaited, highly practical and affordable new model in the 110cc class, the largest segment in the motorcycle market in Nigeria, Honda will strive to further expand its motorcycle sales in Nigeria.
