Honda SH Mode

The SH Mode is designed from the outset around some key baselines. Firstly, a comfortable and upright riding position plus compact body style and low seat height. Ease of use - wheeling it around, getting on and off, and operation were also important considerations. And as a model aimed, in the main, at the fashion-conscious young rider it had to look good, both when parked and when being ridden. All-round utility and accessibility is provided by plenty of useful storage space, compliant suspension and a comfortable ride. Standard fitment Combined Braking System (CBS) ensures confident stopping for the less experienced rider while the SH Mode’s 125cc engine - tuned for easy control at low-to-mid rpm - serves up gentle and usable acceleration with outstanding fuel economy and reliability.

Honda SH Mode

At the start of development Honda engineers took the SH125i engine and set about tailoring it specifically for the SH Mode125. Their aim was to produce a well-balanced and easy-to-use power delivery - with flat, linear torque from zero rpm - perfect for urban environments and riders with diverse riding experience and expectations. The basic architecture of the liquid-cooled four-stroke SOHC 2-valve engine - with eSP (enhanced Smart Power) - is built around a host of low-friction technologies all working together to minimize fuel consumption and maximize output. With Idle Stop technology, operable via a switch on the right handlebar. When enabled it automatically stops the engine running after three seconds at idle and re-starts it instantly the throttle grip is twisted.
