c.1985 Kinetic Honda 79cc NH80 Lead Scooter
Honda's NH series of scooters was offered in a variety of engine capacities and sold under different names depending on the destination market. Thus in the USA the NH was sold as the 'Aero', in Canada as the 'Mascot', and outside of North America as the 'Lead' and (after 1987) 'Vision'. For the NH, Honda abandoned its favoured four-stroke engine and adopted the ubiquitous two-stroke used by virtually every other scooter manufacturer. Electric starting and constantly variable 'twist 'n go' transmission (CVT) were common to all models. The NH series was also manufactured in India as a joint venture between Kinetic Engineering Ltd of Ahmednagar and the Honda Motor Company between 1984 and 2008 when the project was sold to Mahindra. The vendor advises us that this Kinetic Honda is a factory test bike that should have been scrapped (the frame and engine numbers have been removed). This vehicle, having completed less than 6,000kms, may be deemed to fall in the NMT category under NOVA if the vehicle is registered in the UK. Please visit www.hmrc.gov.uk/nova/ for further information.
