2009 Honda SH300i ABS


The SH’s slim, curvaceous profile has become such a familiar sight that it’s hard to remember European streets without it! In spite of its compact proportions, the SH300i packs the punch of a sporting motorcycle with thrilling performance from its compact fuel-injected engine and deft, confidence-inspiring control to match. Powerful rushes of acceleration, thrilling performance and carefree ease of handling make it one of the most attractive commuters on two wheels. Its superior ride comfort is down to a beautifully contoured stepped seat that easily carries two, a roomy, flat step-through floorboard offering plenty of legroom, and large 16" aluminium wheels that provide responsive and reassuring control. Add ample carrying capacity and sleek, attractive lines that draw admiring glances wherever you go, and you can see why the SH300i has set the style and performance standards by which all large-format scooters are judged.

Need an elegant and energetic partner to share your enthusiasm for your busy, fun-packed schedule? The SH300i could be the one.
