Honda celebrate 25 years of the "SH Family" in 2009, which has become the best selling scooter range in Europe. The original SH of 1984 became a familiar sight on city streets with its distinctive high wheels, flat footboard and generous carrying space. It further pioneered many features now deemed â€˜normalâ€™ for scooters.
The new SH is claiming near 100mpg fuel economy and emissions of just 69.522g/km which are figures well in keeping with Honda's "clean and green" policy globally. Overall styling of the SH range has been altered with the front profile of the SH125i now smoother and in line with a more tapered rear section. Along with this there are some dimension changes including a 10mm drop in seat height plus 20mm (wow 2 whole centimeters) of leg room. There is also an option with a rear 240mm disc brake... why this isn't standard across the board rather than a choice of disc or drum. To top off the styling there are a few new colour options available including "Pearl Acid Yellow" which sounds somewhat like an intestinal disorder, a Red Pearl, White Pearl, Pearl Blue, Pearl Black and Metallic Silver.
