1961 Honda 169cc M85 Juno Scooter
Registration no. not UK registered
Frame no. ME856443763
Engine no. to be advised

In 1960 Honda introduced the all-new M80 Juno scooter. Its engine was an overhead-valve, horizontally opposed twin, unique among scooter power units. Mounted transversely immediately behind the front wheel for optimum cooling and ideal weight distribution, it incorporated hydraulic tappets and was coupled to a variable-ratio hydraulic transmission. A twist-grip on the left handlebar altered the ratio. Originally displacing 125cc, the engine was bored out to 169cc, this version's designation changing to M85. However, Honda overestimated the scooter market's appetite for complex and expensive machinery, and production of both Juno models had ceased by early 1964. Only 5,880 M85s were made. Not surprisingly, given its innovative new technology and necessary complexity, the Juno was not sold outside Japan and there are few in Europe.

A rare and fascinating piece of Honda history, this restored Juno scooter was purchased from a collector in Japan and imported into Belgium. The machine comes with its original instruction manuals but is not registered.
