A big hello from Vietnam

Post by moines56 » Wed Nov 15, 2017 1:01 pm

I have just become a proud owner of a brand new SH 150I. This morning it took just 10 minutes at the Honda dealership to exchange many VN Dong bank notes for a new scooter ( that I was not allowed to try out before purchase).
I have to go back in 4 weeks to get my number plates, so for the moment driving is limited to my town where the local police know the Honda shop.
Unfortunately I don't speak Vietnamese so you can see me coming when I say I just don't understand the user's manual titled "KY THUAT LAI XE AN TOAN".
I see that a lot of things in the manual are common sense. You change tyres with no tread, you wear your helmet, you put in petrol when the needle points to empty. (A good check list).
BUT, when you get to the electronic key's multiple functions, engine start, communications areas, thief protection, find your scoot in a crowd fonction , and so on, I'm completely lost. Thngs have changed since my Lambretta mods and rocker days.
A first ride on the the SH150i went off without incident, so far I am very happy with my acquisition.
For tomorrow's ride, can anyone tell where to find a Manual in english (not available at Honda VN).
Thanks for the help and I'll keep you posted.

Welcome to the Forum Moines56 and congradulations on your new purchase. Though you bought it without being able to 'try' it; I am most certain that you made the right choice and will be very happy with your decision.
I only have literature for the 2010 SH150i (.pdf) and am as familiar with the 2017 as you are. I do have this below link concerning the 'Smart Key' though, and maybe it might be of some help.
Hopefully some other 2017 owner will respond here too and help.
Take care, enjoy yourself and you'll soon figure it out......
