PGO PMX110 Review

The PGO PMX 110 is the perfect scooter for those high-speed gravel runs, or if you find the regular 50ccs too small.

Storage capability on the PMX 110 is better than average.

The scooter comes standard with a set of semi knobbly tyres, which add to the off-road look.

The PGO PMX 110 runs a hydraulic disk up front, and firm shocks front and rear, producing a pretty good overall handling package.

With a top speed closing on 105kph, the PMX 110 proves it’s no slow poke.

Who has seen that ad floating about the TV channels at the moment with the dude who, once he eats a chocolate-covered peanut bar, then goes on to back-flip a Vespa? Now that’s something I’d pay to see. Although I’m not sure if a Vespa would be the best scooter to back-flip.

What would be good though is the little PGO PMX110 that I recently borrowed from Triumph.

You have to ask yourself what the PGO engineers were smoking when they designed this scooter. Did half of them want a 110 MX bike and the other half a main stream scooter? Whatever the design process, what we have here is a scooter just as happy on gravel as it is nipping through the urban jungle.

It’s a big 110cc scooter, running big wheels and a big seat. Just as well, for this big-ass meat-puppet.

The PGO engineers must agreed that having a big scooter was a good idea, and I’d have to agree it can easily hold someone of my physique. There is a definite market for bigger, lower-powered scooters, as the financial downturn sinks its teeth further into our economy and with petrol prices still hovering around the $1.60 a litre mark a scooter is still the cheapest form of urban transport out there.

Right off the bat, I have to say that the styling on the 110 is rather weird. There are odd-looking plastic hand protectors better suited to a trail bike, which don’t do a great deal other than partially block the wind from your hands. I say partially block, as they’ve got a big cut-out in the centre.

They would break instantly in a crash or if you bounce off the odd tree or pedestrian, providing no protection.

The scoot also comes standard with a set of semi knobbly tyres, which add to the off-road look, but don’t help PMX’s on-road ability much. Although they do provide good cushioning when you’re curb-jumping. And, if your morning trip to work sees you traversing gravel roads and a river crossing, then they would be a big help.

The PMX may look a bit confused, but in a straight line it’s a true weapon. With a top speed closing on 105kph, it’s no slow poke. It doesn’t get there in record time though, but it does get up to 60kph at a decent clip.

In the braking and cornering department the PGO PMX is well sorted, running a hydraulic disk up front, and firm shocks front and rear, producing a pretty good overall handling package.

Storage capability on the PMX is better than average. It’ll swallow a full face helmet under the seat and there’s a little glove box up front to take your cell phone and keys (or google tear-offs if your trailing the thing!).

The PGO PMX is the perfect 110cc scooter for those high-speed gravel runs, or if you’re more on the meaty side and find the regular 50ccs too small. If your morning commute involves motorway riding or various road surfaces then the PMX would be a good choice. Seriously though, with a good top speed and a fairly decent amount of storage, the PGO PMX had some pretty nifty features.
