Honda SH125 - Any good?

Post by laverdabru » Wed Dec 18, 2019 6:56 pm

Been a while since I've posted, the carbed 2005 Innova had been going well, & as some blind idiot drove into the parked ZX-9R in Spring, it's been my only transport. But the Innovas been getting a bit temperamental of late. As I don't drive, & the public transport is virtually non existent out in the sticks, been thinking about another small bike as back up for the 12 mile commute.
A friend of a friend has a Honda SH125 for sale. As far as I can make out, it is a twist & go bike.
Anyone here owned one or had experience of them?

Thanks in advance,

Bruce

I think the SH 125 is a great scoot.

Richie probably has more miles on an SH125 than anyone I know.

I'm sure he will be along to comment soon.

You'll not go wrong with an SH125. Get it bought.

if it belonged to a mate so known history/ treated kindly then you can't go wrong and as you say is twist n go so nice n easy for the winter commute.

Stick on a blanket (will scratch bodywork but small price for warm legs, set of bar mitts and good to go)

Ritchie is the high mileage SH wizard

Yes I'd own one

Yep here I am,on my 4th Honda sh 125,and they have been different. Brillant scoot big in size/lots of m.p.g big range ,from few years ago gone key-less which I don't like,thats why I might go for Honda sh 125 mode next time.
But I do run a Suzuki [x2] 110 address,s which is lot cheaper the best is my opinion is what I ride.Have to say all the miles I have done is the sh 125.

I have the SH300 and that's terrific. Makes a great commute scooter, light agile and good weather protection, when fitted with a screen.

Thanks for the thoughts - I'll find out some more about the bike being sold. All I know so far is it's got 10k on the clock, & has been garaged & used as a 2nd bike. It's from the neighbour of an ex workmate I keep in touch with.

All the best
Bru
