I work for dominos pizza. In my store we have quite a lot of skys, but only 2 are running. They have done 40K+ miles, which is quite impressive as they still start up first time. I quite like them but unfortunately they havn't been unrestricted so max out at 30mph. When it is icy beware! But in the dry, they corner quite well.
Have owned a Kawasaki ZR750 for two years and wanted something a bit easier to use round town. Chose the honda sky as it seemed so light and easy to use. I am very impressed and use any excuse I can to go out on it.
Its very light and easy to get out of garage. Easy to strart and its very reliable.
its a 1999 model done 4,000 mile and would recommend it to anyone.
i have a honda sky, i love her it gets me to work it gets me shopping all be it a mini shop !! Even in cold wet horriable weather she pops up first time. The only time i dont use her is when its icey she dont grip very well in very slippy conditions .Other than that she is s reg with low mileage cost me 500 quid 3 years ago .She is easy to maintaine , parts are cheap , cost me just under 3.00 quid to fill her up and off we putt , great little bike !!! She may not win no beauty contest nor race with her top speed of 40 derestricted ...eventually. Wouldnt swap her for the world ...hum well maybe a harley lol
Going to keep it short and sweet! Got the bike two weeks ago now and it has never missed a beat.
I brought the bike from a Honda dealer for £520 on a T reg with 680 miles on the clock. It was the same bike I used on my CBT but this one is de-restricted, although it only does 40mph. It is not the best looking bike on the road but it gets me around and I have had no problems with it.
I do have one or two complaints about it though, first of all it has no under seat storage so anything I want to carry has to be carried in a back pack, second the fuel tank is tiny, it costs me about £2.00 to fill the tank when the fuel light comes on but will only do about 40 miles till it needs filling up again. This works out about 100mpg, so it is good on fuel just needs filling up regularly. One other problem I have was when I was checking though the manual and the first 12 pages of the English manual was in a different language!!
I have had one accident on it when I slipped on a wet white line in the road when I pulled out of a junction but the only damage done was a scratched break lever a few marks on the rear indicator and front light it kept running and nothing needed replacing.
The insurance was cheap; I got it though Honda for £190 Third party only which compared to the RS50 where I was being quoted £500 I think is a bargin!
I would recommend this bike to anyone wanting to get out on the road but cant afford to buy something like a RS50.
