I looked at my hand; slowly I lifted it to the gently does it now, I the rubber hand grip and tightened my knuckles. I moved my towards the road ahead…nothing. No no bikes, no kids on skateboards…nothing to my progress.

I’d been for this moment for a long I was about to unleash the Honda SH Time slowed, I sucked in a minute breath and twisted the to full open…

Now in comparison to say a Kawasaki ZX-10R I can’t say that the SH was fast, not at all. for a standard sized scooter the SH is the benchmark for rapidness.

Initial was a little on the weak side for the second or so, then wammo the fully engages and I smoothly continuously to over 140kph. my helmet a grin forms on my This is more like it; is what a scooter should like.

Why on earth has it taken so for scooter manufactures to give us we actually want?

Someone at Honda Italy a decision a few years back to a scooter from the ground up. threw away all the crappy old designs and started with a slate…the SH series was born. Now to say the SH was a success is a total understatement, the SH is the new

Honda’s target was total of the lucrative Italian scooter Target reached, target completely to *^#% bits. In the SH 150 was the number one selling scooter in the SH 300 was number two and the SH 125 was number three.

Not Toyota has a sales success powerful, especially not with a model.

I’m not going to you a complete technical rundown on the SH, just not my style. That’s for people, other websites and humans sometimes called…NERDS. I will do is tell you what the SH is to ride.

The SH 300 is the first scooter I have ridden that I actually to ride HARD. The improved and tight suspension give the road holding that scooters could only of. Hell, on a really twisty I’d have a hard keeping up with an SH300 on a The rear suspension is a little on the side, but it suits the bikes nature far better than the cushy scooter set-up.

The 16 inch wheels do a superb job of out most road imperfections

So after falling in love the SH’s superb handling I the brakes. Holy cow! I stress how much better the brakes are than a standard The SH runs Honda’s linked system which links the and rear brakes off a single This gives you added power under panic when you’re only to get a single hand on the lever.

Now these linked brakes a powerful and foolproof ABS (anti braking system) and you have best brakes of any scooter ridden. Actually the brakes on the SH the brakes on most motorcycles for After riding the SH 300 in terrible wet I’d say I’d NEVER a bike without ABS.

It’s just that Welcome to the future. If the scooter looking at buying doesn’t run simply don’t buy it. In comparison to the SH, junk.

As I said at the beginning of review the Honda SH 300 is fast; the SH 300 27hp. That isn’t a number by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a big in scooter-land. Basically, Honda an engine from one of their off motorcycles and de-tuned it to run a smoother curve and better fuel What they also did was the crap out of the competition. All of the SH’s bikes make a miserable

The extra 5-6hp means the Honda simply rides from all of them in a straight In our tests the SH hit 100kph in just seconds. That’s significantly than any other non-maxi we’ve tested to date.

of use wise the SH 300 is a breeze to live The bikes small size and mean it’s easy to around at low speed and fairly to put on the center stand. Combine with remote seat off the ignition, a detailed set of gauges and a glove box and you have a near scooter.

I say near perfect the SH does have one major point. The under seat area is tiny and won’t fit any of full face helmet. Honda wanted to keep the height to a minimum and just fit a larger storage area raising the seat further. You can fit a top box to a larger helmet but really, is a pain.

Hopefully Honda can this poor storage in the future. We reviewed the SYM’s new 300i and it simply kills the SH it comes to storage. Finally, you get solid build quality and reliability combined with fuel economy for such a bike of 3.5L/100kms (67MPG).

Summing up the Honda SH 300. have set the benchmark with the SH; probably the best scooter in the Most other manufacturers are to offer a competitor, but they to be missing the mark; some by a long way. Vespa with the new GTS 300 Super but sadly the new is a total joke and only 1hp more than their model. No chance.

Piaggio who own are using the same 300 motor actually only a 278cc across their various So I expect the new Aprilia’s, Gilera’s and will be no match for the SH 300’s until they actually a 300cc engine that decent power.

The SH 300 is a lot of money for a scooter but, of it as the Porsche 911 of current scooters. So for money, it isn’t bad at all. It deserves to cost more because it’s significantly than its competitors. If I was buying a wheeled scooter today are only two real options. new Citycom 300i or the Honda SH

The Citycom is a fantastic bike at a price, but the Honda is better in nearly every department. It comes down to money; if you can it…buy the Honda.
