|New Release: Honda Today|
|The development goal for the
Today was to create a scooter that is "easy to ride, easy to buy, and
easy to feel familiar with."
The newly designed, air-cooled, 4-stroke engine is not only highly environment-friendly, it also offers power output characteristics and fuel economy that make it ideal for city driving. Loaded with features such as a body sized for easy manoeuvring, ample space for helmet storage, an anti-theft system, and a "combi brake" front-rear brake-force distribution system for a secure braking feel, this low-priced model offers a new level of value for the scooter market.
Taking advantage of Honda's global network, the Today is the product of Japanese research and development, appropriate parts procurement from various countries throughout Asia and assembly in China under rigorous quality control standards by Sundiro Honda Motorcycle Co., Ltd.
With a name inspired by the familiar expression, "Let's go somewhere today", the Today was created with the goal of providing a scooter that is fun, convenient, and economical to as many people as possible.
