    If you look at what is on offer globally, there aren't that many scoots from which to make a choice locally. Reference your Honda UK model line-up.

    I might be wrong about the 4 year warranty

    Well, it has finally arrived in the showroom, the reintroduction of the SH150. So what do I think, given my anticipation for this machine; who actually cares what I think, but in summary: It's too big. If you told me it was a 300, then maybe. Maybe the bland green surfaces make it look larger. I feel that I would need to go to Ron Bennett menswear to buy a new suit, to wear when riding it, but who goes to Ron Bennett! Quoted at $5.7k ride away, no ABS and IRC tyres, I have never seen this livery represented anywhere else on the net. I am sure it would be an adequate performer, catering to local duties two-up, a good utilitarian local work horse, but it will be interesting to see what numbers they push out the door.

    I would rather tip my money, now, into something about which I could feel passionate. Even the little lizard Dio smiles back at me, which this doesn't.

    I swung past the Honda showroom for another squiz at the SH 150. Repositioned now on their busy showroom floor, and standing side-by-side with a PCX 150, it allowed me to make a direct physical comparison between these 150 scoots.. What I think I see in the SH is a scooter with an ergonomic design accent in support of practical two-up commuting; space, comfort and handling (16" wheels) that will allow realistic urban/city transport for two people. So, if you want to take your best girl out n about town, on this scoot, there is a good chance that she will want to make the return journey home with you. Actually, if you have that need, it makes sense.

    Of real interest, belying the local Honda stats sheet, on closer inspection, is that it is running a rear disc brake and not the advertized drum brake. And I thought it was mostly Piaggio/Vespa that had you checking twice and cutting once with advertized specs. There is no 'cool' factor about this scoot, to me, looking so boring in green. They need to bring back the 'Sporty' version; waiting to see what they look like (in white) out of the showroom and in their natural habitat. I have been offered a test ride.

    I keep swinging past Scooterworld, and others, to catch a sighting of the new Honda SH 150i out of the showroom and on the street. Staff there are enthusiastic about my undertaking a test ride. No surprises there. Some of the staff to whom I have spoken speak most highly about performance and ride characteristics. Altough on paper it is reasonably similar in size the the Medley, it just looks bigger. It is a big 150. Most of the comparison reports for Medley 150 vs SH150i are in some SE Asian dialect, thus far. One article, translated, desribed the new SH 150i as, 'Big man scooter'. Yep!

    Yet to sight a white one or one in the jungle. Oh, the green is so sanitized, imo. I am advised that they are starting to move out the front door.
