There’s nothing flash about the Lead; there’s no neon lights, no turbo boost button and certainly no carbon fiber time phase de friblerators (This is a bit of a shame as they are a lot of fun, sadly I can’t tell you what they actually do as it’s a state secret…really, Google it.) The Lead is a scooter, well yes I’m sure you know that from looking at the pictures but I’m trying to make a point here. It’s just a scooter, it’s not a fashion statement and it’s certainly no penis extension. Honda should really have named it "The Chameleon". You really do blend in on the Lead. I certainly didn’t have any kids pointing and remarking about how cool my scooter was, most people just didn’t know they’d even seen me. Anonymity is a good and bad thing depending on your perspective. If you like attention then the Lead 100 is certainly not your bag, go and buy a Lamborghini. If however you see a scooter as a device to get you from A to B then the Lead could be the ultimate scooter.

The good bits. First off the Lead is cheap, it’s basically the same price as a 50cc scooter; It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to work out that buying a 50cc scooter instead of a 100cc Lead for near the same price is well…stupid. The Lead also handles surprising well considering its low price; it soaks up most bumps well and is generally well sorted when it comes to cornering. As a bonus fuel economy is brilliant; in fact it’s currently in our top five bikes...period. Like most Honda’s one would also expect the Lead to be totally reliable. I’d beat that you could probably just change the oil and tires and the Lead would still be running exactly the same in 8 million years. I guess you’d probably have to do the brakes as well at some point otherwise you’d be what’s sometimes called….dead. Stopping can be important. Especially when you’re approaching a large heard of wild hairy cave dwelling wildebeest’s…happens all the time down here in New Zealand.
