honda cb160

Hey all,

How reasonable is it to get a honda cb160 for a 6ft 170 lb person to ride around town on? Would it have enough power to be a decent dd? Also the bike is a 65 i beleive.

hell yea. (if it runs good) and you maintain it. i rode a 50cc yammy for a couple of years as a dd and it was zippy enough in 50 mph city traffic. id even be passing and taking cars off the line from lights. although i maintained it well and replaced the top end twice. it was a 2stroke and i winded the sh*t out of it alot

haha, I rode 954's bike around a good amount too. even though it was a lil 50cc, it never got boring riding it around. you will not be dissapointed by the 160 in terms of daily drivability.

I had a CB160 when I was a kid, and I was 6'-3" weighing about 170lbs. It pulled me just fine. I even took my girlfriends riding on it. They are great little bikes if they are in good condition.
