Here in the US, where "mine has always been bigger than yours" and engine output have too long exceeded gas-sucking ridiculousness, scooters have always been viewed as some pest you clean from the grille of your V8 pickup truck. It's taken scooters a long time to find respect and an image worthy of cultivating. My theory is, it has a lot to do with the name "scooter," because as a basic commuter they make a stupid amount of sense.
Replacement Air Filter for the 2007-2012 Honda SH300i
Unfortunately, here in the States the only Honda SH model available is the smaller 150i, the one that doesn't do enough to up the overall scooter image. Honda's SH300i big-wheel scooter on the other hand would go a long way to change that. The SH300i isn't yet available in the States, but over in Europe they've been riding them for a number of years. In fact, in Italy the 2011 SH300i was the best-selling scooter, not just in Honda's line-up, but in the country's entire scooter segment.
The Honda SH300i is a wolf in sheep's clothing; it rides like a full-on sports scooter, accelerates reasonably well from a standing start, has loads of power for passing and it'll stop on a sixpence thanks to optionally available ABS/CBS equipped brakes. The Honda brakes are second-to-none, with a system so well sorted that you hardly know it's there, unless of course you need to brake hard on a wet or slippery surface.

The SH300i handles exceptionally well, more like a sports scooter than a lot of scooters that claim to be in that category. The 279cc fuel injected engine has plenty of grunt and it taps-out at around 85mph, which certainly takes the mute out of commuting. And now, by simply replacing the factory installed disposable air filter with K&N's HA-3011 reusable air filter, you can instantly add a lifetime of performance to your twist-and-go SH300i.
The HA-3011 high-performance replacement motorcycle air filter is designed to fit effortlessly into the existing air box without requiring any modifications. Plus, it's engineered to increase horsepower and acceleration while providing exceptional levels of air filtration. Finding the right balance of airflow, filtration efficiency, and dirt capacity is why K&N has become world-famous.
What's more, regardless of how and where you scoot, the HA-3011 will be the last air filter you'll ever buy for your SH300i, because it's backed with K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty. In addition, you won't even need to think about cleaning your HA-3011 air filter for up to 50,000 trouble-free miles, depending on driving conditions, and that's like scooting twice around the planet. Then when it is time to clean the filter, you simply wash, oil and reuse it using one of K&N's Recharger Kits.

2012 Honda SH300i
