2010 Honda SH Review


The 2010 Honda SH is one of a kind. Thousands were offered in production, but Honda chose to manufacture the SH 150 only during 2010. Even so, the model was incredibly popular, and served to lure many scooter enthusiasts and first-time riders to a great 150cc scooter option. The handsome styling on this model is matched by surprising performance, excellent handling, and the ability to cruise through town or comfortably at highway speeds.

The 2010 Honda SH is powered by a 153cc single cylinder four-stroke, fuel injected engine. What this means in terms of practicality: riders can count on great gas mileage. Riders can expect to enjoy over 80mpg, and many owners have reported getting close to 90mpg per average tank, when riding at cruising speed. The SH is also surprisingly quick off the line, and offers excellent handling. The 16 inch wheels present handling that is reminiscent of larger motorcycles.

This Honda scooter is a full body model, presenting a simple, aerodynamic front fairing. A stock windshield offers some protection from bugs, dust, and pebbles, without clouding the sporty aesthetics. The simple design continues through the floorboard, and into the operator and passenger seats. The rear fairing finishes high, similar to many sport class bikes, and contains the low profile rear fender, which drops to possess the tail light assembly, and license plate holder. The rear fairing is also capable of mounted accessories such as trunks and racks.

The instrumentation on the 2010 Honda SH is found just below the windshield. For a 150cc scooter, Honda put together an impressive cluster of indicator lights and gauges. With many motorcycles and scooters, it's necessary to peek in the tank to see fuel levels, but with the Honda SH's tank being well hidden in the rear of the bike near the engine, the gas gauge will ensure that you don't miss the opportunity to fill up.

This Honda scooter is an excellent option for beginners, as well as experienced riders who are looking for an incredibly efficient, amply powerful, and agile ride. This scooter is capable of toting a passenger, as well as a few daily necessities. There are several color schemes to choose from, which will allow for more applied personal preference when shopping for the perfect scooter. And as one might expect, these scooters bearing the Honda name possess excellent mechanical reputations and impressive resale value.
