2014 Honda SH125i

Posted on by  

When it comes to scooters, Honda is certainly one of the top manufacturers. Its products have never disappointed in terms of safety and reliability and the SH125i makes no exception.

Built with practicality and ergonomy in mind, the Honda SH125i promises to reward you with a fun riding experience each time you jump on its saddle.

The scooter’s compact dimensions and low weight help it move through the congested city streets without too much fuss and you also get a new liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, SOHC single engine with PGM-FI fuel injection.

The 125 cc unit generates a maximum power of 8.7kW at 8,500 rpm and 11 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. This power is kept in check by a V-Matic transmission. For enhanced efficiency, the new engine features Idling-Stop technology, which helps it delivers 25% more fuel efficiency compared to the previous model (133.9mpg).

Overview

Honda SH125i

The overwhelmingly popular SH125i offers unrivalled practicality, comfort and safety. With a low seat height, generous legroom and a colour matched top box fitted as standard, the SH125i is the ultimate feel-good transport, and the best loved scooter across Europe. At the heart of the new SH125i is its brand new engine known as ’eSP’ (enhanced Smart Power); built from the ground up with low-friction technology, and featuring Idling-Stop, it delivers an incredible 25% more fuel efficiency in direct comparison to the previous model (133.9mpg). Re-programmed PGM-FI fuel injection and improved combustion also provide plenty of real-world power and torque, in the rev-range most used in the cut-and-thrust of urban riding.

A completely revised chassis - with trademark 16-inch wheels - delivers enhanced handling and stability while ABS is now an option instead of the standard CBS (Combined Brake System). Fresh off the drawing board, the SH125i bodywork possesses a strong, and highly individual, personality - yet is still slim enough to wriggle through the tightest of traffic - and will now store a full-face helmet under the seat.
