Hi all,
I have checked and could not see a thread dedicated to the SH125/150 scooter from Honda - so I thought I start one.
I am riding a SH125i ABS since September this year and use it mainly for my daily commute - 40 mile round trip.
The little scooter is ultra practical and so far 100% reliable. I have added some knuckle guards and also use a scooter blanket (highly recommended) on the colder days!
here are a couple of pics of the BEAST!


The scooter is powerful enough to float in traffic and slim enough to carve through it. It will even reach above 70mph on the Motorway but its most comfortable between 50-60mph.
with the topbox and underseat storage I get all my gym gear and work gear stored with ease and its all watertight too..
most impressed I am with the fuel economy - i get over 100mpg regardsless of riding style. that is the main reason why i use it as my daily ride...my CB1000R get 30mpg! (has a bit more power though!!!:evil)
I keep track of the fuel consumption as you an see below...

Anyway, who else uses or has used an SH125/150?
I look forward reading your reviews...
Thx Lars

I used one for 3 years to do the London Taxi Knowledge. Paid £1100 for it then spent £500...new tyres, front disc, battery etc. 17000 miles around London without a problem other than 3 rear punctures. Mine was a 125cc. Big wheeled scooter...perfect for the pot holed roads in London. I sold it for £700. Can't fault them. A mate of mine has the 300cc as he is doing the Knowledge too and has to come up from Maidstone in Kent. He loves it.

I was more partial to the PCX125, more relaxed riding position and a lower centre of gravity made it feel more stable. Same with the FES125.
