SH125i / Overview

Honda’s SH scooter family, which began in 1984 with the humble SH50, has today become a brand in its own right, having sold over 1 million units in Europe. The original four-stroke SH125, introduced in 2001, was intended initially for global consumption by Honda, and found instant success in Europe thanks to its combination of engine performance, frugal nature and nimble, sure-footed handling and stability from its large diameter 16-inch wheels.

Ever evolving – the 2005 SH125i featured PGM-FI fuel injection – over the last decade the SH has come to represent the ultimate in urban transport for hundreds of thousands of people. And the knowledge gained by Honda, in producing a machine so useful to so many for so long, has created a scooter with the perfect balance of everything needed: style, reliability, economy and downright usability.

Now, in every parking bay and teeming through towns and cities across Europe, you’ll find the SH125: in 2011, with 12,938 units sold it was one of the best selling powered two-wheelers in Europe. Everyday it transports people to work, college, the shops or simply wherever they need to be. In doing so it’s woven itself into the very fabric of life, and become an indispensable tool for living.
