Honda PCX Scooter First Look

Friday, September 18, 2009
Honda is adding yet another small-displacement scooter to its lineup with the debut of the PCX scooter. The Japanese marque announced the new model, a 125cc 4-stroke, will be on sale in Thailand starting this November. The scooter will be manufactured in the Southeast Asian country and exported throughout the region, with plans for eventual import to Japan, Europe and the United States.

Honda PCX Scooter
The new Honda PCX scooter features an idling stop system, where the engine shuts down at idle to increase efficiency.
Powering the PCX is a liquid-cooled, 125cc 4-stroke Single. It will source Honda’s electronic fuel injection (PGM-FI) and the same linked CBS (Combined Braking System) found on the 2010 Honda Elite and SH150i scooters.

But the big news regarding the PCX is the new “idling stop system.” The idea being, once at a stop, the engine shuts down – thus further reducing emissions and increasing fuel efficiency to a claimed 50 km/l, which translates to us non-metricized Americans as 117 mpg.

Oddly enough, Honda specifies the U.S. model will not feature the new idling stop system. Assuming the promises of American import are true, the PCX will reside smack dab in the middle of the 110cc Elite and 150cc SH150i.

Stay tuned for Honda PCX scooter developments.

Just in case no one has found out yet, the USA price is $3,395.00. For a 125cc scoot that's a LOT! But, one cannot beat Honda quality, thus peace of mind. Still,that's expensive bros and sisters in scooter-land.................!

Its very cool, the finish is more like a car than a normal scooter, more refined, then idle system is very good, the fuel tank is bigger than most so combined with 117mpg means less stops at the pumps

Hi Guys,
I got a black one today, it's beautiful, efficient and powerful. It has a trunk also to keep the personal belongings. The ideling stop is a very good feature as talking about fuel efficiency and greener environment. The side stand switch is also great. The price is on a lil bit higher side, @ 70000 THB which is much more than a Yamaha Nouvo which carries a 135 cc engine costs 52000 THB compare to 125 cc of pcx. Still understand the money is for technology but so much?????? Overall its great, I will give 9.75 out of 10.
