2010 Honda SH 150i Gas Scooter Review

by VR
(White Mnts, Arizona)

The Honda SH 150i is a well made scooter. The large 16 inch wheels add to the appearance and make a nice ride even on dirt roads. Great suspension for a scooter soaks up the washboard on my one mile ride to the pavement.

I have had this scooter for two months and now have 900 miles on it. I have the Honda top case and windshield. Both of which I recommend. I can get it up to about 65 mph but 50 to 60 is easier to ride. Head wind or tail wind can add or subtract from your speed. The speedometer is accurate. (Which is not the case on most scooters)

The machine has great performance in town and can easily keep up with traffic. On the highway or freeway you're a little short of the power you would want, but if you are careful you can handle short trips. I have averaged 84 mpg over the 900 miles so far. Most of that being city riding between 30 and 50 mph. My best mileage was 91 mpg on a couple of tanks used for riding the back roads out in the country at a steady 50 to 55 mph. I really enjoy this scooter.

The cons for this machine in my view are lack of a side kickstand (center stand only); relatively short service interval (2500 miles between oil change and valve inspections); and for the price ($4,400), the top case and windscreen ought to be included.

My best mileage was even 92 mpg with this series of scooters! They are really unbeatable in terms of velocity!

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
