Hi John
used the fitting kit for the SH 125 05-08 model I think it was the PL175 very little work to do just a few extra pieces of thin steel to make it sturdy,the Givi E21 panniers
are a real asset for carrying items on the scoot with the lack of underseat storage.

Another question for Big Albi: Does the top part of that windscreen come completely off? If so, could you post a picture of it with the top section removed or failing that, at its lowest point?
Thanks
Steve

Hi Steve,
I have the same Givi screen (which replaced a tiny Puig Scoopy screen that was not really sturdy enough at high speed) and can confirm that the top half removes completely. So one has 3 choices - top off, top on & lowered or somewhat higher. There is bound to a setting that suits you.
Sell any old screen that you might have on Ebay - there will always be a taker!

It mounts sturdily and easily, as per usual with Givi.

HTH,

John

Givi E21 Panniers

Hi Big Albi.

Found the fitting kit after a lot of searching - just hours before you replied.

Out of curiosity, are there any problems with the left-hand pannier and engine plastics making contact when going over a bump/falling down one our wonderful potholes?

Hi John
they are well clear of the plastic covers for the air filter.The fittings are just a bit tight with the the body panels see photo.

Kymco People GTi 300 ABS

Here is a 300 scooter from Kymco that looks like it has more room than the sh300. I like the look, riding two up, just seems a bit stretched compared to the honda. I would consider trading my ride for this Kymco 300. I can only hope we will get a chance at it. Does anyone know if dealers have heard about or can get this GTi300

I sure hope the US gets that scoot (along with the SH300i) as I am interested in that size/caliber scooter. Saw my first Kymco product (People 250S ) for the first time last weekend and that thing just oozed quality! I was very impressed with the fit and finish.

That People 300 is a beast if it arrives onshore. I think I am going to go ahead and jump at a Downtown 300i though. Same great engine and probably better body for two up and weekend cruising. Since we can't lane-split here in Kentucky, I think I'll be fine with the size of the Downtown for commuting. It's big, but no bigger than the Xciting 250, really it's a smidge smaller in most dimensions.

If I had the money though for a commuter and a weekend bike, that People would be my choice.

I bet you're right about that, the downtown is such a neat scoot too. I like the way it looks as well. I don't see how you can go wrong with it, after readings about Guy's short ride, seems like a smart move.

There's a downtown 300i folder here, would like to here more impressions or ideas- post them there. I doubt we will see either the Kymco or the Honda sh300 style here, until competing models create some excess inventory in Italy, (where I guess everybody has to have a cool scooter.)

Bring the Sh300i to the U.S.

Howdy,

Don't know if it's been mentioned in this thread yet, but Honda needs to do just two things with the Sh150i:

1. Assemble it in Asia to keep costs down
2. Make sure it has a rear disc and even a small front glove compartment

And lastly, bring the Sh-300i to the U.S.
