About Honda Win 100cc

Honda Win 100cc: light weight, easy to ride, fast and reliable. This bike shares the same engine and may parts like the popular Honda Wave or Dream 100cc which makes it the cheapest option for a manual clutch bike in Vietnam. We upgraded the ignition system to CDI and 12V. The generic Chinese version of this Honda Win is now every where on the mountain roads, however this genuine Honda Win (rebuilt in late 2010) is far more reliable than a Chinese copy! We feel that this bike doesn’t fit well with our Western customers and we use the much larger road bike or cruiser 125cc.

This model was made based on the Honda CD90cc model which started in 1971 by the joint venture between PT Federal Motor and Honda Japan as CKD (Completely Knocked Down). The first Honda Win 100cc was made in 1986 and the last one in 2005. There is no change in design, just mud guards and stickers.

About The Chinese Win

99% of used or new so called “Honda Win’s” now is a Chinese copy!

How to tell if it’s a Chinese copy that people lie as Honda Win?
To tell if it’s a Honda product or a Chinese bike just do these checks:
1. Look at the blue registration card and in case you don’t see Honda printed anywhere in the brand section then it’s a Chinese bike.
2. If the bike comes with both electric start and kick start then 99% it’s a Chinese. In reality, the real Honda Win comes with only kick start like in the photos on this page. We’ve seen some Chinese copy cats with only kick start but they were very old models.
3. Look at prices offered. 100-400$US range is for a Chinese bike. A working Japanese Honda Win usually starts from around 600$US to as much as 2,000$US!
4. Follow this link and look at photos.

Bike dealers or rental companies in Vietnam usually cheat tourists and advertise Honda Win even it’s a Chinese copy. We are honest and against this plot so we don’t use this model. Your experience with a Chinese fake after all can be more trouble than fun! Many people joked “Chinese Win is a Chinese Loose“!

    Hey Guys,

    I just brought one (Honda Win 100) in Vietnam about to head north and hopefully head into Laos if I can cross the boarder. I see it’s Harder said than done. I literally got it 3 hrs ago and the language barrier was pretty bad so I would just like to confirm that its a four stroke and you don’t need to mix the fuel. If I could get a confirmation on that it would be great. Thanks in advance!

      Hello Steve. It seemed you didn’t know about engines, right? If you do it’s not difficult to tell. All Win’s (Japanese and Chinese) are four stroke. Your bike could be a Chinese copy (99% of these bikes bow) if you don’t see Honda printed in the blue registration card or the bike comes with electric start. be careful with Chinese copy, if it’s old your experience is more trouble than fun. You can’t expect much from a very cheap Chinese bike. Good luck.

    Greeting from Bali…

    Best regards,

    Steve

      Hello Steve. We discontinued this small manual bike 8 years ago. Parts are still available but only Chinese (guess the quality). Genuine parts are expensive, even old. Sorry we don’t do anything with this model and can’t help you this time. Good luck.

    Hi,
    I recently bought a Honda Win copy and it’s running good. However, I want to learn more about basic maintenance of the bike but can’t seem to find anything specific to the Win online. Do you know the model number or is it just a ‘Honda Win’? If so, is there another, more globally popular bike that is similar that I might find some info on?
    Cheers!
    Felix.

      Hello Filix. I owned a real Japanese Honda Win but never liked it because it’s so light and under-powered. Therefore, you can imagine my feeling for a Chinese copy! Unfortunately, we have no part or support for this discontinued model and have been quite busy that we are not able to spend sometime with you to explain about mechanic basics. Repair costs in Vietnam are not expensive but many mechanics are dishonest. Knowing some mechanic basics saves you in the long run. Good luck.

    Sorry mate. I should disagree with you on bigger 125 and above is needed for mountain pass.

    I am owner of 1999’s Honda Win100 from Indonesia. It is actually very good at handling sloopy tracks and high altitudes. The best part is it’s lightweight. You can easily drag it on turns.

    Here is a proof, on top of Doroncanga, Dompu, Sumbawa Island, West Nusa Tenggara. Where every custom trail bike here never hike it to the top. No modification on engine, except the gold paint. 😀

      If you pay money and do a motorbike trip, I am sure you won’t like Win. I personally dislike the steering and feel that it’s dangerous and easy to loose control of the bike. In addition, Japanese Honda Win is a bit old now. We would prefer the new XR125L 2013/14 model. Our customers have had very positive reviews of this bike and it’s our standard and default bike option from early 2014.

    What is the top speed on this bike? I have a beautiful red 92 win 🙂

    • Anh Wu Reply

      Top speed I ever tested was 110km/h but that’s very unstable and dangerous. Luckily, I was on a closed road. To be honest, I never like Honda Win, I would prefer the bigger GL Pro 160cc.

    Hey, I’m an Indonesian. I have a 1999 red one full original, except the cover under the back seat is missing, both very very reliable. Only one time light service in 5 years:) but change the engine oil monthly. So many friends want to buy it from me:) I said ‘no thanks’

    • Anh Wu Reply

      I agree. This model shared the same engine with Honda Dream (or Astrea) but with manual clutch system. The displacement was only 100cc, it’s hard to break down a little bike like this one. If you ever head up the mountain passes, you probably need a larger bike like Honda GL Pro or Mega Pro 160cc. One thing I didn’t like on this bike is the steering which is very light and unstable.

    i have this motor, the win 100
    wonderfull motorcycle.

    • Anh Wu Reply

      Yes, I agree, as long as it’s a genuine Honda product. In Vietnam, there are many Chinese copy cats and they still call “Honda Win”. That’s a lie and you all know the quality of a copy cat. Honda Win from Indonesia is my personal preferred little manual bike.
