Scoot! Rides the 2013 PCX 150

In 2010 Honda launched the PCX 125 with the Elite 100 and SH150i.  As as I thought it was, I remember that it had a 150cc engine. Two later my wish is answered.

Honda considers this  model” which can be sold the globe, it wanted to increase the of the engine to make it more for the U.S. market.  The U.S. is a big with Americans willing to farther and use expressways and freeways. many states require a of a 150cc engine to use freeways, not all are created equally and I doubt I’d many of them on a freeway.

  as part of our test I took the PCX 150 on a Los Angles freeway. The scooter got up to without hesitation, easily achieving 65 There was room for more but it was to take quite a bit of time to beyond that cruising On hills it was adequate topping-out 55 mph on some mid-sized hills.

Acceleration at low speed was met with response. So when riding at speeds (25-25 mph) is plenty of power left for or accelerating out of a tight situation. two-up seems to make impact on its acceleration and handling.

At low- and high speeds the PCX out turns making for an enjoyable It’s relatively light at 286 making it easy to maneuver in lots or around city Honda uses CBS, a braking system, so as you apply the brake the front brake activates, but at a graduated rate.

However you may just use the front The linked braking makes for stopping, but I’d like to see disc on both front and rear for braking. However, that to the sticker price, which price the PCX out of competition with 150′s.

In the Captain’s Chair

The PCX plenty of legroom. The seat is padded, but there is a pronounced on the seat between the rider and the seat. It may be helpful when is a passenger, but when riding it means one can’t scoot This will only be an for those that like to their position and move and forth. The passenger’s section is flat rather than as some scooters can be.

How beneficial that will be is upon the passenger. If you plan to a passenger, it’s worth this bike two-up to sure the seat fits of your needs.

One of the major between a motorcycle and a scooter is the design that is typical of The PCX floorboards are more like a with a large hump in the that one must step As much as I like the styling it takes from sport I still hope for a bike I can step through.

The Scoot! unanimously dislike this of floorboard.  We want to carry bags and camp-out gear, or and that hump really in the way. This can also be an for some “senior” riders who scooters over motorcycles they can’t lift legs as high as they to.

The “hump” seems especially on this bike, which is like a shrunken-down maxi

Subtle Differences Add Up

Honda PCX

At a glance, you may not the updates that Honda Of course, there is the new engine. Not does it have a larger its fuel economy improves the previous model by a whopping 27

Apparently the PGM-FI (fuel-injected) motor and digital ignition electronic advance really a difference The rear suspension was slightly from 2.9″ to probably not noticeable to most but you be surprised how little changes this really affect  This year they the pearl white color for black, but the candy red returns. I’m that in order to reduce they declined to add a clock on model.

The PCX is priced at $1,000 less its Honda sibling the SH150i. Two alternatives are the Genuine Buddy for $3,299, which has more of a lots of accessories and a two-year and the SYM HD200 EVO for $3,499 with a engine and two-year warranty.

The PCX 150 is urban commuter.  It’s enough to go from a tight parking spot to a jaunt on the to avoid traffic-snarled city It has lots of additional Honda that are lacking in the competition, an ignition security cover and a toggle switch to open the door and underseat storage. a quality bike that either appeal to your style and aesthetics, or not.

It’s worth taking for a to see.
