TAKING HOME THE AWARD: Honda (UK) received three awards in three different categories at the 2012 Motorcycle News Awards.

Honda (UK) is celebrating after a successful haul at the 2012 Motorcycle News Awards.

The Honda NC700X was awarded ‘Best All-rounder’, with affordability and ease-of-use highlighted as the key attributes of the middleweight machine. MCN said: “If I were commuting in a city this bike would be at the top of my list. Why have a superscoot when you can have a proper bike with proper handling that does exactly the same thing?"

In the small bike class, the Honda Vision 110 was awarded the accolade of ‘Best Scooter’, with excellent fuel economy figures, riding position and the security of the combined braking system the key factors behind the decision. MCN commented: “Wind protection is surprisingly good, the riding position is spot on and even two up it offered decent ride quality.

The CBS provides confident and secure braking."

Steve Martindale, general manager for Honda (UK) Motorcycles, commented: “We'rere delighted to have been awarded such accolades for two of our most popular models. We’ve been very pleased with how they have been received by the market since their launches and to receive further recognition from one the most respected voices in the industry is fantastic."
