After the failures of the quirkily styled and overly complex Japan-only Juno scooters of the 1950s and early 1960s, Honda turned its back on the scooter market for the next 20 years. When it returned in the early 1980s, it was with a range of more conventional and immensely more appealing models. Among them was the NH series, which 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, as used for the Junos, 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. This low-mileage example's light cosmetic blemishes have resulted from its standing for a considerable time containerised. (The missing side panels are easily and cheaply replaced). Costing less than a third of the purchase price when new, it represents excellent value and comes with copies of Dutch registration documents. 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. No reserve.
