While Honda Australia at the SH150i, Honda Europe a larger capacity of the ever large wheeled scooter.

the debut of the exciting new SH300i, proudly presents the sleek and new standard of mid-displacement scooters for to come. A direct DNA descendant of best-selling scooter, the SH150i/SH125i, the attractive new SH300i inherits its design concept of ‘light, and best balanced.’ It also the original SH’s distinctive 16 wheels, wide, flat floorboard, sleek design and riding proportions that made the SH150i such a hit on the urban streets of Europe.

The larger-displacement SH also features a new fuel-injected four-valve, four-… that delivers the strongest in its class, and a rigid new chassis with an innovative floating system that ensures handling on both crowded streets and open suburban

Honda’s engineers saw a glaring for a perfect model to bridge the gap the slim size and effortless ease of the popular SH150i/SH125i and the performance of the bigger and bulkier found in the scooter market’s displacement classes. They boldly set out to create an entirely new concept that could the exhilarating power, acceleration and of a larger- displacement scooter or while maintaining the more size and proportionsand effortless have made the SH150i/SH125i one of the popular scooters on the streets of

With an eye toward expanding the appeal of scooters beyond the traffic of city centres to open suburban roads and Honda’s engineers designed the new from the ground up to provide an yet totally satisfying blend of comfort and convenience that surely establish it as the strongest and versatile mid-distance city on the roads of Europe.

Slender and for the ultimate in riding ease, yet powerful, and sure- handling to longer distances with assured confidence, the new SH300i is fully equipped with carrying capacity and convenience

Development Concept

Starting the chosen goal of creating ‘Best Commuting Partner,’ scooter development team set out to on the established attractions of the popular with the added benefits of performance and confident high-speed ease.

Four points of were determined from the

1. Light weight and compact for brisk, light-handling manoeuvrability

2. and convenient operation

3. High and comfort in both look and

Desired features included:

1) A powerful engine with the acceleration and smoothest operation in its class. However, without the and weight common to other engines in this class.

2) A and lightweight configuration with the wheelbase in its class, for easier and sharper cornering control.

3) The 16 wheels made popular the SH series, which provide and more comfortable handling, at the higher speeds that new mid-displacement scooter would be of reaching.

4) The spacious flat area also strongly with the SH concept, which easy mounting and dismounting, and foot and leg positioning freedom, the large central frame designs found on many in the class.

5) Ample and secure capacity.

6) Large-diameter hydraulic brakes with ABS also in an additional version.

7) Low noise and to complement its stronger high-speed

8) Low fuel consumption and ultra-low emissions to reflect the world’s concern for the environment and comply the latest, most strict emissions regulations.

However, these and other related proved to be much easier to of than to actually carry An entirely new engine had to be designed and that could deliver the top performance from an

unprecedented form. A new approach to frame also had to be thought out inorder to the highest degree of rigidity for top performance and handling ease still preserving the main that make the SH series so such as its slim proportions and floorboard.

Simply maintaining the characteristic spacious flat only one of its kind in the entire mid scooter classproved to be a major and unique design innovations developed to ensure that the could capably withstand the power and torsional forces would be exerted on a higher-displacement of the SH at motorway speeds.

Exceptional and control were also in this new scooter’s design, and design innovations in the form of a floating link unit make possible one of the smoothest, and most comfortable rides to be in any class of scooter, yet remarkably with the swift, responsive handling that can make commutes a more pleasant and only thought possible on a

motorcycle till now.

In keeping with its stated goal of becoming ‘Europe’s Commuting Partner,’ the new SH300i was designed from the start to be with Honda’s most Combined antilock brake (Combined ABS), for effortless control on par with the new model’s performance and handling, and a unique in its class.

Slim, compact and attractive styling; breathtaking performance and acceleration; precise and handing on both city and high-speed motorways; luxurious modern convenience and impeccable to detail.

Never before possible, and only made by the world’s number one motorcycle Not just another scooter, time for the world to make for the all-new Honda SH300i. The generation of two-wheeled transportation has arrived.

The all-new SH300i a ‘Solid and Elegant’ design of sleek lines and slim that exude the highest of quality and prestige. Borrowing of its distinctive design fundamentals the phenomenally popular SH150i/SH125i scooter that has taken by storm since its 2001 the new SH300i carries the slim and SH concept to a larger class and a new of riding and commuting pleasure.

Compact Configuration

Specially to be slimmer and easier to handle the vast majority of scooters in the class, the SH300i’s overall is only 3% longer than of its smaller-displacement predecessor, the SH150i/SH125i. One of the narrowest and most compact in its class, the SH300i establishes a new in scooter design and function, exceptionally comfortable riding combined with its impressively power delivery and crisper, sporty handling.

Like its the SH300i’s most distinctive features include:

a) Slim especially compared to other in its displacement class,

b) Spacious floorboard area for easy and dismounting and enhanced leg and foot ease while on the move and

c) motorcycle-like 16-inch (40.6cm) wheels mounted with low-profile tyres, which a smooth and confidently assured that compares more to a real motorcycle than do the smaller wheels found on other scooters.

d) Easy-mounting seat height, which an ideal balance of optimal eye level and comfortable seating a relatively easy reach to the thanks to its narrow proportions.


The SH300’s fuller, elegantly curvaceous scooter comfortably surrounds the rider, and is in front by a large clear-lens headlight designed to provide illumination over a wide for excellent night-time visibility. The front bodywork also distinctive clear-face front with amber bulbs its smooth design, which feature ever-on position positioned behind clear lenses which work with the headlight to enhance and ease other motorists’ of the vehicle’s distance and approaching At the rear, a fully integrated and rear indicator assembly.

The new SH300i is powered by an all-new fuel-injected engine which the highest performance and strongest in its class. Not merely a larger version of an existing design, the advanced power unit was developed and crafted to meet its needs, and packed with features and technologies developed in the world and then adapted to next-generation scooter.

Advanced Racing Technology for the Smallest in the 250cc Scooter Class

The newly developed 279cm3 4-valve engine borrows of its highly advanced technology Honda’s famous CRF series of racers, which are powered by of the most compact, lightweight and

competitive engines in their classes. In particular, its innovative crankcase configuration, directly by Honda’s high-performance CRF engine makes possible much and more

compact dimensions any single-cylinder scooter engine in its

Besides being the most scooter engine ever in its displacement class, the SH300i’s new crankcase engine design maximises power output by internal resistance losses.

Resistance Minimised For Stronger

Reduced Air Pressure

The SH300i’s new engine was designed to minimise power associated with air pressure within its compact crank As an engine’s piston falls on the and power-producing combustion strokes, the air the lower crankcase compresses, air pressure resistance or pumping that

Floating Link System

The SH300i’s three-piece articulating link system hangs a single pivot point the back of the lower frame. A yoke section reaches back from the first hanger and surrounds the

engine’s swingarm pivot. Finally, up from the swingarm pivot is a swing rod, which directly to the side of the engine by way of vibration-damping rubber bushings.

The of these three linked and joints permits a measured of free fore-and-aft engine and movement that minimises the of rear wheel shocks and to the frame.

It also effectively most of the engine’s primary which is generated along the longitudinal axis.

Rubber used in the attachment of the vertical rod to the engine also permit a amount of vertical engine and pivot movement that damp out vibration in this as well.

In the horizontal axis, the floating link system’s of three linked parallel points, which utilise needle roller bearings and bushings, provides a solid against the twisting
