The first thing you notice Honda’s new budget-priced scooter is it look cheap.

It might be $3990 but the PCX 125 exudes quality. The fit and of the lustrously painted panels are than the equivalents on most motorcycles, let alone cheap

In fact, it is finished better even Honda’s most scooters. And it also brings to the useful new technology to help excellent economy.

A new idle-stop cuts the engine automatically three seconds of idling and the is restarted automatically when you the throttle.

The system can be disabled via a button on the block. It takes a little accustomed to but we learnt to trust the quickly.

We were a little at first when the engine stop as we sat at a set of traffic lights by heavy vehicles but the engine into life instantaneously and as you hit the throttle.

The PCX 125 out-accelerates most to 60km/h easily, even if you for the green light before the throttle and waking the engine up.

It is slick and clearly the way of the future. It allows the engine to warm up as it will only cut the ignition if when a rider is seated.

The system and smart fuel-injection help the PCX 125 to a claimed 46 kilometres per That figure is difficult to in the real world, when the is wound to the stop on the highways, its 100km/h top speed.

But even that punishment and a tight new with just five on the clock, I still managed to get 100 from 3.5 litres of fuel.

We’re sure that on the commute and with the engine run in, it be possible to get consumption down to That makes for seriously motoring.

Of maximum braking power is applied when both are pulled on hard but for commuting, the rear lever is needed.

On all-out emergency stops, the PCX 125 up well, with the suspension fairly neutral and a slight from the rear as you come to a stop. It’s a good

The PCX 125 chassis is steps above entry-level scooters. A 180-kilogram capacity puts some touring motorcycles to shame and the is capable of carrying an average-size and pillion while still off most bumps.

The instrumentation is and concise but, annoyingly, has no function. A decent amount of storage is available and a small in the front fascia swallows a more gear.

Convenience can be extended further by the optional 26-litre top box for $299 and has an accessories line for the PCX as long as arm.

The PCX 125 is comfortable, dynamically and exudes quality and flair far that of other scooters at its price point of $3990.
