Honda PCX 150

Honda have on a winner ever since the of the PCX in Australia. It has all the ingredients that it the perfect commuter scooter. it’s a little more when compared to other in the budget sector, though as would know, the PCX is far from

Now with the introduction of a 150 cc version, the PCX continues.


Our first with the PCX was back at the launch in 2010. Immediately apparent was the of a rigid frame and 14 inch We also noted a comfortable position, ample storage and Honda build quality.

we were amazed by the fuel and performance from the 125 cc package.

on, and the PCX 150 makes an appearance in a body looks no different from the 125 it replaces. The easy way to tell apart is by the chrome badge highlights the 150 designation. The new, 150 cc — Candy Red colour, is a … giveaway.

The PCX 150 takes from 8.6 Kw’s(125) into figure territory, peaking at 10 for the larger 153 cc capacity. Still a 2 liquid cooled engine, and fuel injected like the before it.

The PCX saves space by incorporating the system and motor into one Being liquid cooled, is able to increase efficiency, and power when compared to air cooled engines of similar

The PCX 150 features the same brushless system as the 125. No turning the motor over, one push and the instantly and silently fires life. Again like the system, the starter motor is into the engine, saving on and making for one very compact

The Start/Stop technology used in the 125 features on the 150 model. Engaged, the PCX will stop running a few seconds of coming to a standstill. the throttle and the scooter will within a fraction of a second. A smart feature that the PCX achieve those suggested 50 km/l fuel consumption

The Start/Stop feature can be switched

The long body design a comfortable seat for one or two. You the seat via a separate switch the ignition. The same switch as access for fuel. Under the there’s enough room for a helmet plus more. is actually quite carnivorous, you can your helmet externally if

The seat height comes in at 760 mm makes it suitable for the short The bars are set relatively low and also a little, the position is very for learner riders. The bars on the PCX are exposed and chrome.

The gauges and have a classy feel them. A large speedo front and centre. Fuel and travelled is by digital readout to the the left is dominated by the Start/Stop light. Still no clock which is just weird for a that offers everything

On the Road

The increase in capacity not immediately apparent is noticeable in the that matter. More so at the top end of where speeds reach figures. Acceleration and mid-range like they’ve been a helping hand, all thanks to an in available torque (14 Nm compared to 12 This was always going to be the I wasn’t expecting a huge My feeling was the 150 would provide a mid-range and an improvement in holding speeds.

Given the way the PCX would sit on the at a true 100 km/h, this was to prove that the increase in has made a real world If given the room the PCX will reach 120 km/h and beyond.

The of the PCX is still incredibly refined. The way the PCX silently and comes to a steady is one of those mysteries of life. On our review we pretty much the Start/Stop feature.

This we just let the PCX do its thing. No dramas, no worked seamlessly, time time. The flashing warning on the dash informs you that the function is in operation.

The efficiency factor of Honda’s PCX has not It seemed like an eternity we needed a refill. My best puts fuel consumption 40 km/l mark in everyday conditions, which is pretty

Given the fuel tank of near 6 litres, a range of in the vicinity of 250 km’s seems Hard to see this ever

Handling, I’m happy to is still something of a standout for me. has something to do with those 14 inch tyres and helped by the integrity of the frame and the positioning of the tank down low. the case may be, this is still one of the handling, lower capacity on the market.

Rear shocks like they’ve been a feed, no bottoming out and riding a pillion was welcome. Sure the PCX is on the road but it’s also stiff and I like the fact you can turn into corners you’re on rails. The seating also helps the rider themselves on the road.

You feel your well over the wheel, this makes and getting through tight a breeze.

The central tunnel providing the PCX with structure can get a little scuffed if you’re not As you climb on and off the PCX your shoes can on the plastic. Would be best to see you can find to protect this from scuffing.


Most reviews on the PCX 150 centre around the use of Start/Stop or the Honda’s ability to start Sure these are both features but for me the PCX offers more, more. For me, it’s about how this scooter is in a day to day sense.

The cooled engine is by far the most efficient I’ve experienced(for the and I like the fact that efficiency doesn’t come at the of power.

Sticking with a capacity engine comes further benefits. Keeping the low means that in most you will reap the rewards of registration and insurance costs. It keeps things light and

It’s of no surprise that will continue to sell a load of PCX scooters here in It would suit many a rider and has all the hallmarks of being a commuter. For the experienced, it’s a fun ride when the corners themselves.

Seen what the HART and girls can do on a PCX?

I should a mention of parts and accessories, and availability. Being made for the market in Thailand means you options, and lots of them. If you find them here in you’ll readily find a heap of mind blowing online, and they’re cheap.

The PCX is not a class scooter. It sits this segment and has the features and that justify the higher point. Spending a little in this case will pay off. Honda’s PCX 150 comes a manufacturers list price of on roads). Warranty is 12 months purchase.

Available in Black, and Candy Red.
