All throughout Europe, sales of the Honda SH125 have gone very well and in the United Kingdom, the amended 2009 hybrid appears as if it will prove very popular. One seeking a model that is very economical should probably look at the 125cc motorbike with gears instead of the auto transmission which is so power consuming. However, for convenience and easy riding, it is very hard to beat the SH.
About every other model in Europe was outsold by the original SH125, but there were many UK bikers that were a bit apprehensive in regard to the 16 inch large wheels. In truth, this caution was misplaced. Improved stability and superior quality of ride were facilitated by the large wheels, in comparison with the scooter’s smaller ones.
2009 model other amendments include a rear disc brake rather than a drum. It was just as much for aesthetic reasons this amendment was made, as it was for any issues with the stopper which was now defunct. And for the other updates, appearance was the underlying theme.
Even though the original SH was so successful, for it’s bizarre appearance, in particular the face, it received a lot of criticism and has been revamped significantly. Now with more discreet curves, the visage looks sleeker. There are elegant, sweeping lines at the rear in the bodywork that offer a touch of sophistication to the SV.
Because the power pick up is so smooth, the engine, frame and transmission are unaltered. This helps simplify U turns and traffic trickling. Virtually eliminated is any vibration and in addition, performance is strong.
The SH Honda claims offers excellent emission and efficiency figures. However, it is difficult to be completely convinced of this as the data they supply is relatively vague. For example, 97mpg is reported to be the fuel consumption, but this is meaningless since no conditions are specified for speed.
Online there is a Honda SH125 review stating that about 85mpg is in fact possible(with full speed on country roads and start/stop riding in town), so this figure is more believable. With Honda’s dependability and build quality, ultimately compared to the majority of other scooters, the SH is truly far superior. For the latest motorbikes and scooters, visit Motoden today!
