2007 S-Wing 125 – E5
Styling
The new S-Wing features an elegant and sleekly cosmopolitan European design that
is sure to attract admiring glances on every road it’s seen. Its generous frontal proportions
impressively integrate dual headlights, a tall windscreen and aero-styled rear-view mirrors
into the attractive chiselled lines of its smoothly aerodynamic front cowl. From any angle,
the new S-Wing presents a commanding presence and sense of pride and grandeur in
keeping with its premier executive class commuter development concept.
The S-Wing’s wide-coverage front cowl is not only designed for impressive
looks, it also provides excellent wind protection and luxurious comfort that belie its
actual size. Its tall built-in windscreen features an air intake port under its nose that
directs air up the inside surface of the screen to effectively expand its area of wind
protection at higher speeds to achieve exceptional riding comfort for its class.
Luxurious riding comfort is further enhanced by the S-Wing’s relaxed riding
position and comfortably contoured stepped tandem seat, while day-to-day convenience
is enhanced by its spacious under-seat carrying compartment, which is one of the largest
in its class.
Large Dual Headlights
One styling touch that really distinguishes the new S-Wing from any other scooter
in its class can be seen in its large, ‘wide-eyed’ dual headlights. Sleekly integrated
behind elegantly curved polycarbonate lenses, its pairs of multi-reflector halogen
headlights, position lights and indicators combine to create a prominent forward visage
that really grabs attention while maximising visibility both day and night. At the rear,
the S-Wing’s dual taillights and clear-lens indicators provide an eye-catching accent on
its neatly curved tail.

exciting sense of cosmopolitan style.
The new S-Wing takes to the streets in a brilliant metallic silver that attractively
accentuates its sinewy curves in a glistening lustre of modern European style. The SWing appears especially fast and potent in a deeply shimmering pearlescent black that
looks sleek and sophisticated on every street it roams. Quality and prestige shine
through in a breathtaking metallic bronze that accentuates the S-Wing’s presence in
every scene it graces. Finally, in rich pearlescent purple, the S-Wing seems to evoke the
sultry hues of the evening sky wherever it is seen.

Engine
Like the latest of Honda’s growing range of 125cc-class scooter models, the
exciting new S-Wing 125 (and S-Wing 150) delivers an impressive rush of performance
from a quiet, smooth and highly reliable liquid-cooled 4-stroke engine that’s been
specially tuned for powerful low-to-midrange torque, quick take-offs and smooth,
strong acceleration. This highly efficient engine’s fully computerised PGM-FI
electronic fuel injection system not only ensures a strong, instantly responsive power
delivery, but also excellent fuel economy, low running costs and remarkably low
exhaust emissions for dependable transportation that meets the needs of the times while
minimising its impact on the environment.
The new S-Wing’s compact, forward-oriented single-cylinder engine is mounted
in essentially the same location as most scooters of its class, as an integral part of the
chassis’ fully suspended unit swingarm. Its liquid-cooled configuration makes a major
contribution to the engine’s low mechanical noise while playing a critical role in
stabilising operating temperatures for more exacting control of exhaust emissions. Like
other Honda scooters of this type, the engine’s compact radiator is located in the frame
well under the front of the seat, where it receives a steady stream of cooling air through
large louvered ports located behind the front wheel. The radiator is also fitted with an
electric fan to maintain stable operating temperatures and performance on even the
hottest days.
Advanced PGM-FI Electronic Fuel Injection System
In the interests of strong, responsive performance, low fuel consumption and low
emissions to meet the most stringent environmental regulations, all of Honda’s latest
scooters feature the precision control of a fully digital Programmed Fuel Injection
(PGM-FI) system. Like these other models, the new fuel-injected S-Wing sets the
standard for fuel economy and clean emissions, while providing exceptionally strong,
smooth and reliable performance.
This compact system fully integrates the throttle body, sensors, injector and
digital electronic control unit (ECU) for both the fuel injection and ignition systems into
one compact and lightweight unit to further ensure quick starts and smooth, reliable
response for optimised power and performance. In these times of rising fuel prices, top
fuel economy and low running costs are especially important to daily commuters, and
2007 S-Wing 125 – E8
the new S-Wing really stands out with its extended riding range on a tank full of petrol
and its long-term, low-maintenance reliability.
High-Accuracy Digital Ignition
As noted above, the S-Wing’s digital electronic ignition is fully integrated into the
PGM-FI fuel injection system’s ECU to maintain optimal combustion characteristics for
easy starts and smooth operation in all riding conditions. Delivering a precise, highvoltage charge, this system uses a convenient push-button electric starter to ensure
quick and easy starts, and smooth, dependable long-term performance.
Ultra-Low Exhaust Emissions
Like most of Honda’s latest fuel-injected scooters and motorcycles, the new SWing 125 and S-Wing 150 are also equipped with Honda’s most advanced HECS3
oxygen-sensing catalytic emissions system for the lowest exhaust emissions in their
class. With its electronic circuitry integrated into the fuel injection system’s ECU, this
system monitors both the fuel injection sensors and an oxygen sensor installed in the
exhaust system to precisely maintain the optimal fuel/air mixture for its metal catalyser
element to minimise emissions of carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HC) and
nitrous oxides (NOX). The end result meets the highest standards of environmental
protection, and easily clears the strict limits imposed by the latest EURO-3 exhaust
emissions regulations.
2007 S-Wing 125 – E9
Chassis
Like several other fine Honda scooters in this competitive class, the new S-Wing
features stunningly modern and attractive bodywork that organically surrounds a slim yet
rigidly constructed tubular steel frame. With a low seat height and relaxed riding position
for easy long-term commuting comfort, the S-Wing’s compliant, light-handling
suspension systems offer reassuring handling stability and smoothly confident control.
Introducing Honda’s First Full ABS-Equipped Scooter in the 125cc Class
The Deluxe versions of the new S-Wing 125 and S-Wing 150 proudly introduce
the enhanced confidence and control of the first complete front and rear disc Antilock
Brake System ever featured in the Honda 125cc scooter class. Like the systems
currently featured on several of Honda’s larger scooters, this new ABS works in concert
with Honda’s innovative Combined Brake System to provide exceptionally smooth and
confidence-inspiring braking control in the most extreme braking conditions, where
riders of all skill levels need it most.
At the heart of this advanced system is a compact, motor-driven modulator that
exerts precise control over the operation of both front and rear brakes. Its high-speed
16-bit computerised ECU constantly monitors a pair of Hall-effect sensors which track
the rotating speed of a pulsar ring attached to the centre of each rotating wheel, and
instantly reacts when needed.
ABS Operation
Whenever the slightest hint of tyre slippage is detected—registering as minute
fluctuations in the relative speeds of the front and rear wheels that are usually far too
small for riders to detect—the ABS ECU instantly activates the electro-hydraulic
modulator to stop tyre slip before it can start. This is achieved with a rapid cycling of
‘Decrease – Hold – Increase’ brake pressure intervals that maintains just enough brake
pressure to provide smooth and steady deceleration, but without allowing either the
front or rear wheel to stop, slip and lose control.
Honda’s scooter-oriented ABS is one of the simplest, most compact and most
efficient such systems in motorcycling. As such, the S-Wing’s development team felt that
the time was right to introduce this remarkable system into Honda’s 125cc line-up of
2007 S-Wing 125 – E10
scooters in order to give users of this high-quality Executive Commuter the most
effective braking control available for the ultimate in riding confidence and control.
With the added capabilities of ABS complementing the excellent response and
performance of its Combined Brake System, the Deluxe version of the S-Wing
reassures its riders with the most comfortable and confident braking control to be found
in the 125cc class. Over such variable traction surfaces as wet crossing lines or metal
plates, this added control can make all the difference in maximising a rider’s confidence
and security, and should prove to be a highly welcome feature that helps riders utilise
the S-Wing’s brakes to their full potential.
Like all other Honda models equipped with ABS, the S-Wing’s system features an
automatic self-diagnostic program which constantly monitors all main electronic and
hydraulic system components. If any malfunction is detected, the system automatically
shuts itself off and reverts to standard, fully reliable brake operation. A red LED
warning light on the instrument panel simultaneously lights to provide a visible
indication of system irregularities and the need for timely service.
Easy-Operation Combined Brake System
Like most of the scooters in the Honda line-up, both Deluxe and Standard
versions of the S-Wing feature the enhanced braking ease and control of Honda’s
innovative Combined Brake System. Linking together the operation of a single 240mm
three-piston calliper front disc brake with a 220mm single-piston calliper rear disc, this
highly effective system provides both novice and experienced riders with easy,
reassuring braking control.
In this relatively simple system, the right-side brake lever operates like a
conventional motorcycle brake system, controlling the two outer pistons of the threepiston front brake calliper for strong, responsive braking operation. Breaking with
conventional designs, the left-side brake lever controls not only the rear disc brake, it
also actuates the centre piston of the front brake calliper by way of an inline pressure
equaliser. This smoothly balanced combination of front and rear brake operation
gives riders an extra boost in braking control, even if only the left-side lever is used.
When both levers are used, the S-Wing provides the same sharply responsive feel of
braking control one would expect with many larger motorcycles.

Spacious Riding Comfort
The S-Wing’s relaxed and roomy riding position is highlighted by its widecoverage front cowl which effectively keeps the blast of wind at bay, its plush, deeply
contoured stepped seat, and its comfortably positioned handlebars. This layout
contributes to the S-Wing’s effortless handling in virtually all traffic conditions, while its
slim proportions in the seat area assure an easy reach to the ground for riders of all sizes.
Its spacious contoured seat also provides comfortable and secure seating for two, even on
longer rides.
2007 S-Wing 125 – E12
Equipment
Attractive, Automotive-Style Instrument Panel
The S-Wing’s wide, recessed instrument panel conveys the look of a luxury sedan
with its attractively designed four-dial façade. Its smartly appointed design provides a
steady reminder of Honda’s unerring attention to detail. Instruments include a large,
easy-to-read speedometer and tachometer pair positioned within easy view at the
panel’s centre surrounded by paired coolant temperature and fuel gauges. Prominently
positioned indicator lights and a large LCD digital clock and dual-trip meter complete
the design together with a handy average fuel consumption readout that continually
gauges fuel economy based on, among other factors, throttle operation. Finally, the
whole assembly is recessed behind an attractively styled clear plastic lens and backlit by
coolly illuminating white LEDs (Standard version: amber).
Spacious Under-Seat Carrying Compartment
As with most of the models in Honda’s fine line-up of scooters, the new S-Wing
features a handy carrying compartment under its locking tilt-up seat for ample carrying
convenience and a secure place to store one’s helmet or daily necessities. Designed to
hold a full-face helmet with room to spare, this spacious compartment also provides
ample capacity for an A3 briefcase, a load of shopping or other travelling essentials.
For the busy executives the S-Wing commuter is specially directed at, this compartment
also features a handy 12V DC utility socket for charging mobile phones and other
accessories.
Up front, a compact locking compartment further enhances the S-Wing’s carrying
convenience and security by keeping such small essentials as gloves, papers and other
articles close at hand without having to leave the seat. Shopping bags and other bulky
items with handles or straps can be easily and securely hung from the convenient foldout carrying hook centrally located to the right of the compartment door.
Compact Rear Carrier
Behind the S-Wing’s comfortable tandem seat is located a compact moulded resin
rear carrier that also offers a comfortable hand grip for pillion passengers. Like similar
carriers found on Honda’s SH series of big-wheeled scooters, this rack is specially
designed with moulded-in attachment points to allow for easy one-touch mounting of a
2007 S-Wing 125 – E13
specially designed 35-litre top box (optionally available), which quickly clips directly
onto the carrier and can be secured with a key. No other mounting hardware is required.
