New Honda

Timeless Grey


You always notice the top of the class.

Living in the city, we know your life runs fast. A whirlwind blur of where and when to be. You need to stay ahead. And have a load of fun while you do it. By instinct and design, so does our beautiful, brand new SH125i. It keeps ahead of the pack thanks to its smooth, freshly sculpted sporty style wrapping a more powerful, more fuel efficient HSTC-equipped 4V four-stroke eSP+ engine.

Ultra-modern mobility

Adding convenience, a USB port has been integrated for charging on the move. At the same time a careful redesign of rear suspension geometry has improved ride quality and comfort for you and your passenger. A brand-new LCD dash presents exactly what you need to know clearly and precisely, while complete LED lighting is sharp and highly visible.

Ride easy

You’ve got the ease of a Honda Smart Key which operates the ignition, seat, filler cap and steering lock from your pocket, plus the option to add a Smart Top Box that locks automatically and simply opens via a carrier-mounted button. There’s also the choice of extra weather protection from windscreen and knuckle guards for winter commuting.

We’ve moved things around a little and with a lightweight new frame have created over 50% extra room, meaning you can store a full-face helmet with plenty of additional space.


The SH125i’s new liquid-cooled 4V eSP+ engine is faster, leaner and cleaner than ever before.

To maintain the SH125i’s number one status, we’ve given it a redesigned 124.8cc, liquid-cooled 4V four-stroke eSP+ engine that smoothly develops more power (9.2kW @ 8,250rpm) and torque (11.4Nm @ 6,500rpm). So standing start and passing acceleration times are faster than the previous SH125i, as is top speed. All of which is useful for beating busy traffic.

Lean and clean

Fuel economy (without Idling Stop activated) goes from the 43.3km/l of the 2V eSP+ engine to the 4V eSP+ engine’s 44.6km/l (WMTC mode). And just as important to owners and for a machine that will spend most of its time in an urban environment the SH125i’s eSP+ engine is now EURO5 compliant; the allowable limits for exhaust emissions specified by EURO5 are drastically reduced compared to those of EURO4.


Two new razor-sharp new paint options add sports appeal to the SH125i.

Want your SH125i to stand out from the crowd? Choose between stealthy Matte Rock Gray or subtle Matte Pearl Cool White and enjoy a contemporary look with sporting edge, distinctive floor stripe with SH logo, red SH and Honda logo detailing, as well as sporty headlight stripes.
