In the last part of the test of the 2013 Honda Scoopy SH125i, a shorter chapter than usual because we have not been able to test it thoroughly on the highway or with a passenger, we are going to delve into some details that have remained in the pipeline but that I do not want to stop commenting with you, such as the load capacity and the finishes.

2013 Honda Scoopy SH125i, now with more cargo capacity

2013 Honda Scoopy SH125i

As we told in the first part, the Honda Scoopy SH125i has a glove box behind the shield, specifically on its left side. This has been possible after the displacement of the radiator to the side of the engine itself, minimizing to the maximum the travel of the cooling circuit that now does not need pipes so that the fluid can go from the radiator to the engine and vice versa.

Accessory inside of car, usually to save docs it does not have a key lock rather, it does so by simply pressing the finger. With a press, the lid opens a little, enough so that we can pull it out and access its interior, which has a correct hole, neither too big nor too small.

To close it, then reverse operation and pressing with the finger it closes again … or it should because the lid moves a little and doesn't always close properly the first time if the hitch is not correctly faced.

Those who regularly read my tests will have seen that I always detail the seat opening system and sometimes I comment that what is the use of putting a remote button if the contact has to be given for it. In others, in addition to the remote button, it can be accessed from the key by turning it the other way round, something that slightly improves the practicality to open the seat in most occasions.

Well, the Honda Scoopy SH125i goes one step further and for this it incorporates a remote button next to the ignition key. So far nothing new except that to be able to open it is not necessary to give the contact but to there is a position between OFF and ON that only this button leaves us operative, so that the motorcycle does not have to do the checking and the injection does not carry out the fuel load to prepare for the start. And even the lights don't turn on either since it's not necessary.

Under the seat we find the cap that gives us access to the fuel tank and the great novelty: the hole that allows you to store any full face helmet. And I guarantee that it is big because for a hair I did not take my bad-bad-ass helmet (the one that I wear not that you already know that I never take it off but another one that I always wear to the tests for the occasion). With this, what I want to say to you that with a little skill you can still store some other small things such as wallets along with sunglasses or the like. And no, it is not necessary to put them inside the helmet.

Of course there is no lack of hook to carry objects taking advantage of its flat platform and also others under the seat, in the front part, to wear or leave a second helmet hanging from the ring. There is not much style here, but it is in other countries.

We do not forget the rear-view mirrors because in Barcelona I used them intensively and why don't you know that it was the only thing I couldn't see for them: my elbows. But everything that happened behind it did. Correctly sized and a position is very successful We can use them and not only to put the helmet when we stop to wait for the chat.

2013 Honda Scoopy SH125i, full of multiple details and magnificent finishes

Let's talk almost to finish the finishes of the 2013 Honda Scoopy SH125i which I could only summarize as magnificent. It is filled with a multitude of details such as the 3D logos on the sides, the embossments on the top of the fuel tank or even the initials SH that adorn the interior of the lamp holder.

Some of you will say that these are simply silly little details that will only concern the most gourmets. Well then, then stop for a moment to observe the union between the two pieces that make up the frontal shield. Can you find them? No right? Indeed because they are not where they should be.

The normal thing is that the manufacture of this part is carried out with a front and a rear cover, so that the union joint remains on the outer edge, in view. However in the Honda Scoopy SH125i, the front piece turns around and continues inside until it joins the other so that the joint is completely concealed in the own lines of the inner part of the shield. They are those things that show that a lot of thought has been given to the final result.

And this end result translates into a price of 3,499 for the 2013 Honda Scoopy SH125i equipped with ABS brakes. Logically, when the CBS combined braking version is put on sale, the price will be somewhat lower. Expensive? Well it depends a lot on your approach but I have to make it clear that The 2013 Honda Scoopy SH125i is the best Scoopy ever made. Users' complaints have been resolved in one fell swoop and also, incorporating new and better ones.

Without at doubt it is the most sophisticated high wheel scooter and what better performance you get overall. It is the first time that I can not say: hey, well this is that I did not like anything at all. There may be some small detail such as the operation of the glove compartment closure or that for some the benefits are not enough (you have to see the use that gives it because it would still have to jump to a 300) but nothing more to object.

AND to show the thousands of users of this model, especially in Barcelona, ​​who use it daily and are delighted because they have not suffered the slightest problem or left them lying down (except when it has been stolen from you). And all this with the old model. With the 2013 Honda Scoopy SH125i they are going to have to give away a visit to a dentist because you won't stop smiling. I assure you. And no, for this test they haven't bought me either.
