A Few Words About Safety
Your safety, and the safety of others, is very
important. Operating this scooter safely is an
important responsibility.
To help you make informed decisions about
safety, we have provided operating
procedures and other information on safety
labels and in this manual. This information
alerts you to potential hazards that could
hurt you or others.
Of course, it is not practical or possible to
warn you about all hazards associated with
operating or maintaining a scooter. You
must use your own good judgement.
You will find important safety information in
a variety of forms, including:
● Safety labels on the scooter.
● Safety Messages preceded by a safety alert
symbol and one of three signal words:
DANGER, WARNING, or CAUTION.
These signal words mean:
3 DANGER
You WILL be KILLED or SERIOUSLY
HURT if you don’t follow instructions.
3 WARNING
You CAN be KILLED or SERIOUSLY
HURT if you don’t follow instructions.
3 CAUTION
You CAN be HURT if you don’t follow
instructions.
Other important information is
provided under the following titles:
NOTICE Information to help you avoid
damage to your scooter, other
property, or the environment.

Safety Guidelines
Safety Guidelines
Always Wear a Helmet
It’s a proven fact: helmets and protective
apparel significantly reduce the number and
severity of head and other injuries. So always
wear an approved motorcycle helmet and
protective apparel. 2 P. 11
Before Riding
Take Time to Learn & Practice
Even if you have ridden other scooters, practice
riding in a safe area to become familiar with
how this scooter works and handles, and to
become accustomed to the scooter’s size and
weight.
Ride Defensively
Always pay attention to other vehicles around
you, and do not assume that other drivers see
you. Be prepared to stop quickly or perform an
evasive maneuver.
Make sure that you are physically fit, mentally
focused and free of alcohol and drugs. Check
continued 3
Scooter Safety
Follow these guidelines to enhance your safety:
● Perform all routine and regular inspections
specified in this manual.
● Stop the engine and keep sparks and flame
away before filling the fuel tank.
● Do not run the engine in enclosed or partly
enclosed areas. Carbon monoxide in exhaust
gases is toxic and can kill you.
that you and your passenger are both wearing
an approved motorcycle helmet and protective
apparel. Instruct your passenger on holding
onto the grab rail or your waist, leaning with
you in turns, and keeping their feet on the
footpegs, even when the scooter is stopped.
Safety Guidelines
Make Yourself Easy to See
Scooter Safety
Make yourself more visible, especially at night,
by wearing bright reflective clothing,
positioning yourself so other drivers can see
you, signaling before turning or changing lanes,
and using your horn when necessary.
Ride within Your Limits
Never ride beyond your personal abilities or
faster than conditions warrant. Fatigue and
inattention can impair your ability to use good
judgement and ride safely.
Don’t Drink and Ride
Alcohol and riding don’t mix. Even one
alcoholic drink can reduce your ability to
respond to changing conditions, and your
reaction time gets worse with every additional
drink. Don’t drink and ride, and don’t let your
friends drink and ride either.

Keep Your Honda in Safe Condition
It’s important to keep your scooter properly
maintained and in safe riding condition.
Inspect your scooter before every ride and
perform all recommended maintenance. Never
exceed load limits (2 P. 17), and do not modify
your scooter or install accessories that would
make your scooter unsafe (2 P. 16).
If You are Involved in a Crash
Personal safety is your first priority. If you or
anyone else has been injured, take time to
assess the severity of the injuries and whether it
is safe to continue riding. Call for emergency
assistance if needed. Also follow applicable
laws and regulations if another person or
vehicle is involved in the crash.
If you decide to continue riding, first turn the
ignition switch to off, and evaluate the
condition of your scooter. Inspect for fluid

Scooter Safety
leaks, check the tightness of critical nuts and
bolts, and check the handlebar, brake levers,
brakes, and wheels. Ride slowly and cautiously.
Your scooter may have suffered damage that is
not immediately apparent. Have your scooter
thoroughly checked at a qualified service facility
as soon as possible.
Carbon monoxide gas is toxic.
Breathing it can cause
unconsciousness and even kill you.
Avoid any areas or activities that
expose you to carbon monoxide.
Carbon Monoxide Hazard
Exhaust contains poisonous carbon monoxide,
a colourless, odorless gas. Breathing carbon
monoxide can cause loss of consciousness and
may lead to death.
If you run the engine in confined or even partly
enclosed area, the air you breathe could contain
a dangerous amount of carbon monoxide.
Never run your scooter inside a garage or other
enclosure.

Riding Precautions
Riding Precautions
Scooter Safety
Running-in Period
During the first 500 km (300 miles) of running,
follow these guidelines to ensure your scooter’s
future reliability and performance.
● Avoid full-throttle starts and rapid
acceleration.
● Avoid hard braking.
● Ride conservatively.
Brakes
Observe the following guidelines:
● For full brake effectiveness, operate both the
front and rear brakes together.
● Avoid excessively hard braking.
u Sudden braking can reduce the scooter’s
stability.
u Where possible, reduce speed before
turning; otherwise you risk sliding out.
12
● Exercise caution on low traction surfaces.
u The tyres slip more easily on such surfaces
and braking distances are longer.
● Avoid continuous braking.
u Repeated braking, such as when
descending long, steep slopes can
seriously overheat the brakes, reducing
their effectiveness.
❙ Combi Brake
Your scooter is equipped with a brake system
that distributes the braking force between the
front and rear brakes.
The distribution of the braking force applied to
the front and rear brakes when operating the
front brake lever only and when operating the
rear brake lever only is different.
For full braking effectiveness, operate both the
front and rear brakes together.
Riding Precautions
❙ Combined ABS (Anti-lock Brake System)
This model is also equipped with an Anti-lock
Brake System (ABS) designed to help prevent
the brakes from locking up during hard braking.
Always use the recommended tyres to ensure
correct ABS operation.
● ABS does not reduce braking distance. In
certain circumstances, ABS may result in a
longer stopping distance.
● ABS does not function at speeds below 10
km/h (6 mph).
● The brake lever and pedal may recoil slightly
when applying the brakes. This is normal.
❙ Wet or Rainy Conditions
Road surfaces are slippery when wet, and wet
brakes further reduce braking efficiency.
Exercise extra caution when braking in wet
conditions.
If the brakes get wet, apply the brakes while
riding at low speed to help them dry.
Scooter Safety
(NSS300A only)
Parking
● Park on a firm, level surface.
● If you must park on a slight incline or loose
surface, park so that the scooter cannot
move or fall over.
● Make sure that high-temperature parts
cannot come into contact with flammable
materials.
● Do not touch the engine, muffler, brakes and
other high-temperature parts until they cool
down.

Importance of Maintenance
Maintenance
Keeping your scooter well-maintained is
absolutely essential to your safety and to
protect your investment, obtain maximum
performance, avoid breakdowns, and reduce air
pollution. Maintenance is the owner’s
responsibility. Be sure to inspect your scooter
before each ride, and perform the periodic
checks specified in the Maintenance Schedule.
2 P. 45
3 WARNING
Improperly maintaining your scooter
or failing to correct a problem before
you ride can cause a crash in which
you can be seriously hurt or killed.
Always follow the inspection and
maintenance recommendations and
schedules in this owner’s manual.
44
Maintenance Safety
Always read the maintenance instructions
before you begin each task, and make sure that
you have the tools, parts, and skills required.
We cannot warn you of every conceivable
hazard that can arise in performing
maintenance. Only you can decide whether or
not you should perform a given task.
Follow these guidelines when performing
maintenance.
● Stop the engine and remove the key.
● Park your scooter on a firm, level surface
using the side stand, centre stand or a
maintenance stand to provide support.
● Allow the engine, muffler, brakes, and other
high-temperature parts to cool before
servicing as you can get burned.
● Run the engine only when instructed, and do
so in a well-ventilated area.
Maintenance Schedule
The maintenance schedule specifies the
maintenance requirements necessary to
ensure safe, dependable performance, and
proper emission control.
Honda recommends that your dealer should
road test your scooter after each periodic
maintenance is carried out.
Maintenance
Maintenance work should be performed in
accordance with Honda’s standards and
specifications by properly trained and
equipped technicians. Your dealer meets all
of these requirements. Keep an accurate
record of maintenance to help ensure that
your scooter is properly maintained. Make
sure that whomever performs the
maintenance completes this record.
All scheduled maintenance is considered a
normal owner operating cost and will be
charged for by your dealer. Retain all
receipts. If you sell the scooter, these receipts
should be transferred with the scooter to the
new owner.

Caring for Your Scooter
Caring for Your Scooter
Information
Frequent cleaning and polishing is important to
ensure the life of your Honda. A clean scooter
makes it easier to spot potential problems.
In particular, seawater and salts used to prevent
ice on roads promote the formation of
corrosion. Always wash your scooter
thoroughly after riding on coastal or treated
roads.
Washing
Allow the engine, muffler, brakes, and other
high-temperature parts to cool before washing.
1. Rinse your scooter thoroughly using a garden
hose to remove loose dirt.
2. If necessary, use a sponge or a soft towel
with mild cleaner to remove road grime.
u Clean the windscreen, headlight lens,
panels, and other plastic components with
extra care to avoid scratching them. Avoid
directing water into the air cleaner,
102
muffler, and electrical parts.
3. Thoroughly rinse your scooter with plenty of
clean water and dry with a soft, clean cloth.
4. After the scooter dries, lubricate any moving
parts.
u Make sure that no lubricant spills onto the
brakes or tyres. Brake disc or pads
contaminated with oil will suffer greatly
reduced braking effectiveness and can
lead to a crash.
5. Apply a coat of wax to prevent corrosion.
u Avoid products that contain harsh
detergents or chemical solvents. These can
damage the metal, paint, and plastic on
your scooter.
Keep the wax clear of the tyres and brakes.
u If your scooter has any matte painted
parts, do not apply a coat of wax to the
matte painted surface.
Caring for Your Scooter
❙ Washing Precautions
u Any condensation inside the headlights
should dissipate after a few minutes of
running the engine.
Aluminium Components
Aluminium will corrode from contact with dirt,
mud, or road salt. Clean aluminium parts
regularly and follow these guidelines to avoid
scratches:
● Do not use stiff brushes, steel wool, or
cleaners containing abrasives.
● Avoid riding over or scraping against curbs.
Information
Follow these guidelines when washing:
● Do not use high-pressure washers:
u High-pressure water cleaners can damage
moving parts and electrical parts,
rendering them inoperable.
● Do not direct water at the muffler:
u Water in the muffler can prevent starting
and causes rust in the muffler.
● Dry the brakes:
u Water adversely affects braking
effectiveness. After washing, apply the
brakes intermittently at low speed to help
dry them.
● Do not direct water under the seat:
u Water in the under seat compartment can
damage your documents and other
belongings.
● Do not direct water at the air cleaner:
u Water in the air cleaner can prevent the
engine from starting.
● Do not direct water near the headlights:
Panels
Follow these guidelines to prevent scratches
and blemishes:
● Wash gently using a soft sponge and plenty
of water.
● To remove stubborn stains, use diluted
detergent and rinse thoroughly with plenty of
water.
continued 103
Storing Your Scooter
● Avoid getting petrol, brake fluid, or
detergents on the instruments, panels, or
headlights.
Exhaust Pipe and Muffler
Information
104
When the exhaust pipe and muffler are painted,
do not use a commercially available abrasive
kitchen cleaning compound. Use a neutral
detergent to clean the painted surface on the
exhaust pipe and muffler. If you are not sure if
your exhaust pipe and muffler are painted,
contact your dealer.
Storing Your Scooter
If you store your scooter outdoors, you should
consider using a full-body motorcycle cover.
If you won’t be riding for an extended period,
follow these guidelines:
● Wash your scooter and wax all painted
surfaces (except matte painted surfaces).
Coat chrome pieces with rust-inhibiting oil.
● Place your scooter on its centre stand and
position a block so that both tyres are off the
ground.
● After rain, remove the body cover and allow
the scooter to dry.
● Remove the battery (2 P. 62) to prevent
discharge.
Charge the battery in a shaded, wellventilated area.
u If you leave the battery in place,
disconnect the negative - terminal to
prevent discharge.
Transporting Your Scooter
