Honda revealed its new SH150i, a practical daily commuter designed for urban use. At the heart of the scooter lies a fuel injected 153 cc four stroke engine paired with Honda’s V-matic transmission. The engine is fed by a decently sized 1.8 gallons (including 0.5-gallon reserve) fuel tank. Like any respectable scooter, the Honda SH150i puts efficiency on top of its priorities list rewarding you with an average fuel consumption of only 91 MPG.

As far as style goes, the Honda SH150i features a distinctive design language that underlines its practical character. We especially like the spacious saddle that offers space for up to two people and the ergonomically designed handlebar which is fitted with a modern instrument panel.

The scooter rides on relatively big 16 inch wheels which are kept in check by Honda’s modern Combined Braking System (CBS).
