Any biker would know any dick can go fast in a straight line.

Lol, if you think going fast in a straight line on a bike doesn't take skill, try it sometime.

Actually no don't, you'll die.

Seriously? 200kph is 125mph. A 600 sportsbike could do that within 20 seconds. Even in Cambodia.

I’ve regularly hit 170mph on 1000cc and 900cc bikes in EU and AU. Scared yes but zero skill involved. Just some balls and faith in your maintenance levels.

Watch IOM TT. That’s skill and bravery.

I don't particularly like them but they are very solid and hold their value. A lot of the bikes they are being compared to are made in countries like Vietnam, Thailand and China that have aren't seen for quality like Japan has. I'm always amazed how much loving care I've seen many Dream owners put into their bikes, they wash them lovingly every evening. Top bike for being targeted and stolen too.

I find the Honda Dream is a really great bike; well designed, and really reliable. It also holds its value really well in Cambodia because of its popularity. It is so easy to fix, most especially because of parts availability and familiarity. Best of all, it is actually attractive design. I love it.

For anyone that wants a bike, just buy a new one, it really doesn't depreciate much, if you keep it for 2-3 years.

I've had a couple of Honda dreams, I think it's a good bike, never let me down, I payed 1100$ for the one I got now the bikes tip top, the farther in law just bought a wave brand new 2019 he says he payed 800$, he says he can't have a registration plate that's why it's cheap this is down in sinhoukville, I think our Dorris gave him a grand more than she said, since I told her only give him a grand cos All He does is sell them and buy a cheaper one and pocket the difference, I bought him a brand new dream 5years back within 2 years he was riding a 200$ moped.

In 2010 a new Honda Dream would cost you just under 1.500 USD. Now you pay 2.380 for the same.

Inflation is through the roof if you use the 'Dream index'.

I like the Dream too, but I will never buy one. The Wave with the disc brake gives you a similar engine and because it's nearly 50% cheaper it'll give you more bang for your bucks, and spare are available everywhere as well. Yamaha Spark is a good competitor as well, although spares can be more difficult to obtain.

Anyone able to squeeze 50 km out of a liter of gas on a Dream either:
- exaggerates
- weighs under 10 kg
- did the run on a special track with a prepared motorbike in the most economic mode. In reality 1-30 is more realistic I think.

Can the wave carry a 200 lb Barang and his lady up Phnom Kulen? I never once considered the gas, that's pretty flint.

Cost is relative to resale though. So, ours is now close to 5 years old. I think we could easily sell it fast for $1200. That means it cost us less than $160 a year. $3.07 a week. I had a shiny reliable ride that makes me feel safe all the while.

The Wave 110 has a 5,57 KW engine, so it will make it to the top. And the resale value is pretty high as well, not as good as the Dream though, but still good. And it's 1.100 USD cheaper and comes with a disc brake (which I prefer over drum).
