Honda SH 150i (2005-2009): Loyal friend in townEngine: Friendly, smooth power output, economy are the three key factors for the engine. Its a decent engine for inexperienced riders who need to feel safe. Its also powerful enough to go first at green light in front of the majority of cars. ‘he top speed is somewhat higher than 100Km/h.
On the road: On town rides the feeling of light weight and the low center of gravity is impressing. Rider gets a good supervision of the road, agility is unique, as well as handlebar movement. These together with the scooter's thin shape, make it a really easy to use and pleasant vehicle in town.
Suspension is very good, providing comfortable rides as well as superb handling. The 16 inch wheels compensate to that, so potholes are hardly noticed for this category standards. Rider gets a lot of feedback when cornering. The rear brake is powerful, while the front is ok.
Comments: Storage underseat area is small, an open helmet will not be taken. Therefore, the rear topbox and the level foot floor will be used for carrying objects. The seat is comfortable for the passenger as well.
