Where is the battery located on Honda Vision 110?
if you have the latest Honda Vision 110 (2022) and need to gain access to the battery it is located on the floor panel where your feet are positioned (see image below with orange arrow).
You will need to unscrew the screws and remove the black panel with a screw driver. Once the panel has been removed you will need to remove a black plastic box which covers the battery. This may be a little difficult and may require two people to help.
If you have an older Honda Vision 110 the battery location is in a different place to the newer model and is easier to get access to. The battery is located under the main head light on the front of the scooter (see image below with orange arrow) underneath the panel.
