Dislikes: A little hard to work on so I take it to a friend when needed. I zip tied an egg crate to the back and can easily carry a week's worth of groceries. It has new fuel and oil as well. Return to the main page. The Honda Spree is slow off the start due to the lack of torque, but once you hit 15 mph, it really picks up.
However, I ended up using it to get to and from work and to do most of my small errands in town almost every day from May through late October that first year I had it. It brings many fond memories. There are some resistance checks in the Honda Spree service manual at this site. Compared to my motorcycle and bicycle, the Spree feels more like a toy. Here is what I tried.
Guys have found failures of any of those components. Now, I just have to think about what that points to. Have rain suit to keep in trunk. No spark can be from the coil and stator coils. No real world street numbers as I refuse to push the engine.
I trailered it home and I could not get it started. It is for putting a smile on your face. If you're thinking about getting one, I would recommend it. I love it and have no complaints! Want to sell your scooter or point out a good deal? Want to talk about self-balancing scooters? Has 25,000 miles and still runs great. Mine has no problem on takeoff and starts flying at 10 to 26 mph. The scooter is now beautiful, and has achieved a top speed of an astounding 47mph on the dyno!! It handled very well and it was lightweight.
I've put close to 2000 miles on it and the only thing I've had to fix was a broken brake cable. Soon after, my son just fell in love with it so we decided to restore it for him. All in all, my experience with the Spree has been a positive one. Some of the reviews are complaining about a lack of storage, but I really don't see the problem. I want this vintage scoot looking and running awesome for many years to come.
It's older than I am, yet still running very strong. I would recommend a Honda Moped to anyone! Gotta love that 2-stroke feel. That's not what we're here for, but check out if you want to talk about those cool little machines. If you want your subreddit to be linked here, send a message to bacondog. Then headed over to to find out more information on what it is I had.
It surely doesn't look as good as it once did, but I still love it and it's a blast to ride! You can trail-brake these scooters through corners! My Moped takes care of me and I take care of it. I live in the heart of my town so getting around on roads at 30 mph isn't a problem, but if you live in a suburb or anywhere where the speed limit is 35 mph or faster or anywhere with lots of hills , then don't even bother with a Spree. You will have fun on this Historic scooter. But I can say with the engine overhaul and upgrades, you'll easily hit 35 with a big smile on your face. It's great for getting around downtown of a city. Red one tops out 30mph still has restrictor. There's a marked up diagram about 3 postings down in this thread.
Honestly, mine has been nothing but fun and every time I ride it, I can't stop smiling. I have talked to many around town and have noticed lots of Honda Scooters showing up only 1700 population. My muscles get a no stress workout from balancing. It's so light that I can easily pick it up. I recommend adding a windshield and replacing the slick front tire.
