Increased cubic capacity for Honda’s range-topping SH brings with it faster top speed and improved acceleration. The engine is also now EURO5 compliant. A refined frame design saves weight while all-new bodywork evolves the style and includes LED headlight, taillight, indicators and LCD meter panel. There’s also now a USB Type-C socket under the seat.
Look around Europe’s capital cities and two letters will be constantly, obviously, on the move around you: SH. Over a million SH scooters have been sold in Europe over the last 36 years, earning the SH tag the status of a brand-within-a-brand, underpinned by Honda’s famed build quality and reliability.
The SH300i, with its compact, flat-floored step-through design and 16-inch front and rear wheels carried all of the SH signature touches and packed something extra – a powerful engine delivering maximum response for both city and highway use.
It became the first Honda to gain EURO4 compliance back in 2015; at the same time its engine got a boost in torque output and fuel efficiency. Its look, too, was made more muscular while the chassis received revisions to expand storage space and maintain its razor-sharp handling. In 2019 it gained Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and Smart Key operation.
For 2021 the story continues: the new SH350i gains cubic capacity, thus power and torque plus an elegant re-style, further cementing its position as the perfect all-round scooter.
