Nice article bizzy, but a footnote may be needed, since the Honda Service Manual references a starter motor powered by the 12V battery in its Starting System - Component Location Index. Perhaps the IMA motor is used for auto stop / start, which might explain the smoothness, but a cold start (from key-off) probably uses the starter motor; the article needs to be updated, otherwise it's very informative!
