Honda's retro scooter gets timely updates

Honda Thailand unveiled a much awaited update to their retro styled scooter, the Scoopy. Competing against the Yamaha Fino, the newer Scoopy carries over much of the design cues of the previous, but now integrates signal lights into the head and tail light cluster. Its headlights also boast of LED lighting.

Another addition is the new eSP (enhanced Smart Power) powertrain. It's composed of a 110cc liquid-cooled and fuel injected single cylinder engine. This is coupled with a continuously variable automatic transmission, that delivers power to the rear wheels via a V-belt. As expected, the new Scoopy also boasts of many of the features of Honda's eSP-equipped scooters, such as the idling stop system, and a built-in parking brake.

Honda displayed both the stock unit and one souped up with original accessories that include corrugated upholstery, a chrome exhaust, bar-end mounted mirrors, aftermarket stepboards, and rear cargo rails.
