2010 Honda PCX125 Scooter Goes to the UK
text size: A- A+
Under the dark, tinted screen is a dual-headlight, behind which sits a high-tech instrument panel with speedometer, fuel gauge and an indicator for the engine’s Idle Stop Switch.
The lockable storage space is large enough for a full-face helmet and more. In addition you also have a glove box and the ability to fit an optional 26-litre top box on the rear carrier. With 14-inch wheels and Combined Brake System, the scooter is not only good looking but safe too.
Thanks to the Idle Stop Switch and Brushless ACG Starter, the PCX delivers up to 130 mpg (1.81 l/100km). The brushless ACG works as both a starter motor at ignition and a generator while on the move, making the engine lighter. On the other hand, when the Idle Stop Switch is enabled, the engine stops running after three seconds of idling, but it re-starts when the throttle is twisted open again.
“With all these attributes, the PCX can easily move from being a reliable daily commuter, to stylish evening transport or a machine capable of taking rider, pillion and luggage out of town,” a company statement reads.
With a range of accessories for each of the three colour options available - Pearl Himalaya White, Asteroid Black Metallic and Seal Silver Metallic, the Honda PCX125 scooter wears a price tag of £2,270 on the road.
