About Honda Wave
Honda Wave to sweep the light weight motorcycle segment
The Honda Wave is a series of lightweight motorcycles manufactured and marketed by Honda that made its debut in 1995. It goes with many names as it is called Innova in Europe, Supra X in Indonesia and NF series. The Wave series is a successor to Honda Cub that made use of pressed steel both for cosmetic purposes and structural chassis. This series is available in 100 cc, 110 cc and 125 cc variants. The first two engine designs are similar to those found on Honda Cub while the 125 cc version has a comparatively larger engine.
In the Philippines, Honda Wave gained a steady fan following who prefer utility and sporty feeling that a motorcycle from this series offers. In 2006, the Wave Series was face-lifted and the 125 cc model received a key slot cover to protect against theft. From 2007, Fuel Injection got introduced and saw its use on models available in Europe.

Popularity in the Philippines
Honda Wave gained massive popularity in the Philippines because of the polarity that exists in the market. There are top-grade bike enthusiasts who buy sports bikes like Kawasaki Ninja or Ducati series, there are also people who prefer scooters because of low maintenance costs and ease of commute. People who are casual riders prefer the light and sporty feel of scooters and the attractive price it comes at. With fuel prices being always on the rise, most Filipinos are looking forward to alternative modes of transport, this is where the low budget bikes come to play. Competing with many giants in the market, Honda made quite a name for itself in the low cost motorcycle segment.
Latest news in the Philippines
Astra Honda Motor started exporting two types of motorcycles to the shores of Philippines because of its geographic and demographic similarities. AHM president Toshiyuki Inuma said in a recent interview that they want to expand their market, not just limit their operations in Indonesia. This news can only be taken on an extremely positive note because the light weight motorcycle arena has lack of competitors at the very moment. Increase in competitiveness will only set the ball rolling in favor of the consumers who spend their hard earned money on such bikes.
Controversy regarding Honda motorcycles
It came to notice of the company that Honda Wave replicas were being sold in the market in the Philippines after which they filed a complaint against National Bureau of investigation. After the investigation was complete, numerous people were arrested in charge of theft, abuse and piracy of a product. Despite of efforts, Honda clones are still sold widely in countries like China and Thailand.
