2010 Honda SH150i Scooter Review

by Dan
(Hamilton, OH USA)

I've only had this Honda SH150i scooter for a short time but it hasn't disappointed. If you can get past the hefty 4K price tag, then you will have a well built and fast machine.

Here is what to love about the Elite's big sister; I still have my Elite, my wife rides now and I love it as well.
  • The SH has big wheels (16"), which are excellent for stability, hitting bumps and control on windy days
  • a 153cc fuel injected & liquid cooled engine producing speeds up to 70mph
  • unheard of gas mpg for a 150 class scoot at 96mpg
  • large comfortable seat for riding "two up" etc.

The only negatives that I wish were better is there is minimal storage and no ignition lock, both strong points on the Elite.

I'm having a blast on this bike, and it looks and feels more like a motorcycle than a scooter. It may be a little costly but like all Hondas, it will last and last with minimal maintenance.

Sparkle Pony
by: Dave

I went looking for a Honda PCX 125 but ended up buying an SH 150i because the dealer didn't have the PCX and because the Honda Elite 110s were just too toylike in comparison with the SH 150i.

This scooter is exactly what I need. I'm 5 miles away from work and with the scooter the trip is almost too short. (Previously I was riding my bicycle and in the Phoenix heat -- 115 degrees in the shade on day the trip was way too far.)

Didn't really consider a motorcycle because the scooter is strictly a commuter and this is so much more convenient.

My 13 year old daughter goes out in the garage just to sit on it. (She noticed that the paint sparkles -- hence the scooter's new name "Sparkle Pony")

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.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

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