Honda SH 125 Mode

Post by hw97k2000 » Mon Apr 09, 2018 6:21 pm

Well here she is, have got just over 30 miles under her wheels since picking her up this morning.
Thoughts so far:
The seat, far more comfortable than the Innova.
The suspension feels a little on the hard side.
Very similar riding position to the Innova exept for feet a little further forward.
Indicator switch seems a little fiddly especially when turning right, I suppose I will get used to it.
Decent ammount of storage under the seat, not tried to fit a helmet in there as yet.
Mirrors fold up nicely which is useful for getting the bike down the side of my house.
Brakes are very good even before they have bedded in properly.
No regrets at all in swopping the Innova for the Mode, next on the shopping list, a screen and a top box.

That is a great looking scoot, I recall being really tempted by one of them until I had to go back to something a little bigger

I had the same experience with my 2017 Vision 110 esp when new. The indicator switch does loosen up after around 3-4000 miles of commuting and the ride quality improved when I changed the fork oil to 7.5 weight oil.
If you quiz the parts department at Honda, they will give you the specs needed to sort your fork oil if you’re tempted to play with it. I just put 13 gram Dr Pulley sliders in my Variator, 2 grams lighter from the standard Honda ones (15gm) and it has transformed the Vision on hill climbs too.
Hope that helps

Yep I’ve got one as my knees , back couldn’t do punctures any more . Lovely little machines
... use the dearer petrol as you get more MPG and you get a better ride .... IMO.it May be worth getting a plug kit .... for those punctures...
