    Re: Honda DN-01, scooter or motorcycle?

    Hi Way. Have always liked the DN01. But I am firmly attached to my Honda SH300i and can not justify owning a DN01 as well. 

    But, just like a dog walking service, I could look after your DN01. Take it for daily ride. Show it off to the world and keep it happy. 

    I saw a black one in Paris a few weeks ago. Pillion passenger and all. And in Paris, the land of the Maxi scooter, the DN01 looked right at home. Not a head turned. Just missed that second front wheel (ala MP3).

     The Honda Dn01 is most definetly one of the worlds first automatic motorcylcles, as much as id love to call it scooter it's simply not, my decision was made by being up close to one of these recently

    Hey guys and gals,

    Anyone looking to buy a DN-01?  I am looking to sell mine.  Just don't have the space and don't use it.  It has done less than 900km.  Mine has an after market exhaust that makes it sound like a proper twin!  Bike has never been dropped.  Thanks.

     Hi cbell, I am in Melbourne, which is a long way from Perth!  I am looking for $8,000.

     You are right, Melbourne is a long way from Perth. I had to ship my other DN-01 from Newcastle and that cost nearly $1,000 but $8,000 and 800km's is getting close to the point where it is worthwhile. I will get my wife on the bike over the weekend and let you know her thoughts. Can you send an email to cbell62@hotmail.com so that we can talk outside the forum?

    I saw one of these beasties in it's natural habitat today. It was being ridden by a woman on Ls being escorted by her hubby who was on an old Honda motorbike. They had ridden 420km from Perth to Albany for an overnight stay. Talking with her, as hubby paid for petrol, she was well impressed (and obviously enjoyed having someone approach to ask her about it) with the bike having "graduated" from a 250cc scooter (I forgot to ask which one), has consistantly done about 1000km a month on it since buying it secondhand with a little over 1000km on the clock. It was a burgundy red colour & definitley very nice to look at, in a martian kind of way. Smile

    Re: Honda DN-01, scooter or motorcycle?

    we're not on LAMS yet so any rider has to have a R or R-A license to ride anything over 250cc. Unless they're escorted by someone with an equivalent license. I don't think she needed the L plate though.

    SharonVespaGirl:

    I don't see how anyone possibly could consider it to be a scooter. There's nothing "scootery" about it. It's an automatic motorcycle!

     

     

    I would definately agree with that, it doesn't fit the definition of a scooter, no step through frame, not footwell area.  Its an automatic motorbike.

    enjoy yourself its later than you think
