SH300i / Overview

Timeless style. Refined performance

Born to satisfy commuting professionals, the SH300i has made the city streets of Europe its own since its launch in 2007. The combination of a powerful 280cm3 engine, which effortlessly tackles motorways and long commutes, and the amazing agility of a small-capacity scooter helps the SH300i establish itself as the ideal machine for people in need of fast, efficient, urban and suburban transport.

And to enhance its appeal to such riders, the 2011 SH300i now boasts a few changes that makes it the most dynamically refined, and unrivalled machine in its class.

Bumpy city streets, to open roads. The SH300i takes it all in its stride

Stylish-conscious professionals will not only appreciate the new bodywork and a striking lightweight wheel design, but also the changes made to the chassis. We gave the SH300i an underbone type steel frame to ensure chassis rigidity and a low kerb weight while also being compact, giving plenty of space within the body of the scooter.

To help cement the SH300i’s status as the best-handling and most dynamically refined machine in its class, we also designed a new premium suspension system too. The revised settings on the 35mm front telescopic fork and rear duel-damper unit swingarm enhance high-speed stability and control. The SH300i is as happy on bumpy city streets as it is cruising the open road.

If you need another good reason to ride the SH300i: the engine offers superb performance and versatility, all while thinking about your wallet.

While you’re effortlessly carving through town, enjoying the 279.1cm3 engine which employs a four-valve cylinder head and PGM-FI fuel injection, unwavering focus on reducing internal friction means the SH300i ensures you get the best possible fuel efficiency.
