Boon Siew Honda launched the new Honda Wave 110 this morning in Petaling Jaya. A successor to the Wave 100, this basic kapcai is an all-new model and it was revealed at the launch that Malaysia is the first market to launch the bike. With the tagline Satu Untuk Semua (One for All), the Wave 110 is billed as a versatile people’s bike.

The new Wave 110 is powered by a four-stroke 110 cc engine with 7.67 PS at 7,500 rpm and 8.32 Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm. Boon Siew Honda says that it’s the first 110 cc engine in Malaysia to comply with Euro 2 emission standards. The improved engine has a lighter piston (by 10%) with a surface coating that reduces friction, and a roller rocker arm that works to achieve the same.


The company also highlights the new bike’s fuel efficiency – it’s capable of 52.5 km/l in the ECE 40 test mode, compared to 49.4 km/l for the Wave 100. The bike should be better riding thanks to a more rigid and lighter frame, bigger tyres and a centre of gravity that’s pushed forward. In Honda’s own 0-200m test, the Wave 110 covered ground in 14.1 seconds, four tenths faster than the Wave 100.

New or improved features include redesigned head (multi reflector halogen) and tail lamps, front disc brake (DX variant only), a new exhaust pipe with thermal protector and ergonomically designed switches on the handle bar.


Not listed in the brochure, but shared at the launch, are subtle changes like the bigger fender (better wind and water protection), a more comfortable seat (better dispersion of pressure) and easier main stand operation. The latter is thanks to optimisation of the centre of gravity, grip position and the main stand itself.

Two variants of the Wave 110 are available – the basic S and the fancier DX. The DX adds on an electric starter, clear signal lenses, sportier graphics, front disc brake, five-spoke cast wheels, chrome muffler cover and black painted parts (engine case, fork, steps). Three body colours are available, with one unique hue for each variant – orange for DX and blue for S.

Priced at RM3,898 for the S and RM4,498 for the DX, the new Wave 110 comes with an improved warranty period of two years or 20,000 km.
