The Honda H100S Super was a two stroke motorcycle introduced in 1986 and designed to compete with similar two stroke 100 cc motorcycles. Honda was losing ground in the 100 cc class, as their four stroke models like the S 110 and later the CG 125 proved to be too slow compared to those of other Japanese manufacturers (especially Kawasaki) with their quicker and sleeker two stroke motorcycles.

This was an upgrade from the Honda MB 100. It had good styling and could reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 12 seconds, which was fast for a 100 cc bike at that time. Due to its small ends, the connecting rod had problems; the motor also didn't last long. The pistons were the first to go and gave in very quickly. Production was discontinued 2 years later as stricter emission levels made two stroke motorcycles redundant.
