A 1986 Honda Spree

The Honda Spree or Nifty 50 (NQ50) is a 49 cc (3.0 cu in) motor scooter made by Honda in the mid 1980s. Honda marketed three different models based on the Spree's design. In some U.S. states it was legally classified as a moped.

Model year changes[edit]

  • 1984: The Spree was available in Sparkling Red (US Only), Cortina White, and Vista Blue (Canada Only) The speedometer design was also slightly different than the 1985-7 Sprees, instead speed numbers were 10-20-30-40, '85-7 Sprees were 5-15-25-35 The logo was also much smaller than later years.
  • 1985: The Spree logo was much larger than the '84 Sprees, making it more visible.
  • 1986: The Spree gets a kick starter.
  • 1986: Honda also produced a "Special Edition" Spree, with a Shasta White & Lollipop Green Color combo. Nowadays this Spree is extremely rare and hard to find, as this style was only produced in 1986.
  • 1987: The dashboard, front indicators and tail lamps were redesigned to a more aerodynamic shape. Also added was a glovebox located behind the shield or front of the scooter, underneath the handlebars and in front of the floorboard.
