2011 Honda PCX Scooter First Look

Wednesday, May 12, 2010
2011 Honda PCX Scooter
Honda is already showing off their 2011 Scooters starting with the PCX.
Take a look at the 2011 Honda PCX Scooter. This fuel-injected 125cc liquid-cooled single cylinder four stroke powered machine is the new mid-sized offering from Big Red. Aimed directly at the consumer who is looking for an all-around vehicle that is equal parts commuter, daily driver and fun mover, the PCX has potential to be a success. It rolls on stylish 5-spoke 14-inch wheels with a braking system that consists of a single 220mm disc with 3-piston caliper up front and a drum rear brake. The PCX features a 31mm fork with 3.5 inches of travel works with the Unit swingarm to offer a low maintenance and plush ride. With a relatively long wheelbase of 51.4 inches it should be stable for riders that take it out on the curvy open roads.

The PCX features Honda’s V-Matic automatic transmission, a sizeable storage area capable of hauling a full face helmet, large locking glove box and stylized bodywork reminiscent of the new VFR1200F. Its large seat sits at 29.9 inches off the ground but its step-through scooter design will make it easy to climb aboard and the wide floorboards should provide plenty of room for taller riders and a measure of wind protection form its extended bodywork near the rider’s feet. An anti-theft deterrent ignition cover and center stand rounds out the nifty array of features that Honda feels will make the PCX appealing to riders of all experience levels. Price and availability have yet to be announced.

“We’ve enjoyed tremendous success with our line of scooters,” said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino, “and now along with the 2011 Ruckus we’re introducing the brand-new PCX, a very stylish 125cc scooter that adds even more depth to Honda’s scooter line.”

The Honda Ruckus is back!
The little 49cc all-around scooter is one of the cool 2-wheelers in Honda’s 2011 line-up. It’s a popular selling bare-bones machine that is great for the urban environment where less is sometimes more. It’s a great in town bike looks tough and fits the bill as a durable in-town commuter.

Hakan -going up hill with pcx  October 7, 2010 08:46 PM
I took this model for a test ride a week ago together with my wife, 300 lbs total weight. Takes off very quick. My wife had to hold on me tight because she was not expecting it to take off so fast like that. I hit 50 mph very easy and road was up hill coming up. The scooter`s speed went down to 40 mph from 50 because of the hill. That was down side of it. So if We were riding on it on a highway speed limit 55 and my speed would go down to 40 because of up hill? Dang it! That is the reason i am thinking if i should buy it or not. It is definetly twice more powerfull than my turtle Elite 80 but I hate to buy this PCX and see that trafic to pile up behind of me while I am trying to go up hill with it! If any of you have more better experience with this scooter going up hill, please e-mail me and tell me your side of story so i make my mind about pcx. hakanseckin@hotmail.com

Susan -Honda PCX 125i--so where is it???  August 19, 2010 09:40 AM
I'm glad SOMEBODY is getting a chance to ride/buy one of these bikes. At first Honda said we would see them in the late Spring of 2010, ahh great, plenty of riding time ahead. Then it went to "by the end of June". From there we got early July, then DEFINIATELY the first week of August. Now my dealer says October 8th, really, really really! Yeah, well great! I just spent much of the summer scoot-less because I sold my current scoot to get the PCX. Why does Honda do this? They could've sold a ton of these in the spring if they had them here. This bike has been out for months and months in other areas of the world. Now I'm thinking I'm gonna get me a Kymco.

bat039 -PCX in Thailand  May 14, 2010 02:55 AM
I drove this PCX in Thailand for 6 days.
It's a winner !
Great looks, easy and fun to drive, good breaks, comfortable.
Don't worry about the fact that the PCX is build in Thailand. It has all the qualities of a Honda. All this for a low price.
Only one negative point : the windscreen is inadequate for driving faster than 45 mph.
Harley_#1 -Quality Scooter  May 13, 2010 07:54 PM
I wished Harley made a scooter with lots of chrome. Its quality would be very high.
AFwestPunk -PCX  May 13, 2010 01:31 AM
I purchased this scoot once it was released here in Japan. It is a definate headturner and can move pretty well. Just wish the color selection was expanded to include the other colors from Thailand models.
