The CT110 replaced the CT90, which was essentially the same machine but with a smaller displacement engine.
The base CT110 105 cc (6.4 cu in) four-stroke air-cooled single-cylinder engine which is nearly horizontal in the step-through tube/stamping frame. It has a semi-automatic four-speed transmission and a centrifugal clutch. That coupled with a 2:1 ratio gear reduction box known as the dual range sub-transmission, which switched into operation using a small lever under the transmission case, allowed the bike to climb steep slopes.
In the US the CT110 comes with factory street legal lighting and mirrors, a large luggage rack, center stand, and an auxiliary gas can. The 1980 model of CT110 lacked the dual range sub-transmission, but that returned in following years. The motorcycle was imported from 1980 to 1986.
Australia and New Zealand
The CT110 is still in production and sold in other countries around the world. In Australia and New Zealand it is known as a "Postie Bike" due to its use by Australia Post and New Zealand Post as a delivery bike, without the dual range sub-transmission. A slightly modified version, the CT110 AG, is sold for agricultural use.
Apart from the Australian market, large numbers of CT110 and CT90 models were also brought to Tanzania in east Africa, where many are still in use today. Among the original users was Danish aid organisation Danida. During the late 1970s and 1980s they were the standard issue motorcycle for volunteers.
