Honda PCX 125 Receives an Update, More Efficient Than Ever
Europe’s favourite 125cc scooter is made Euro4 compliant for 2016. The PCX’s 375 kilometre range – from its ultra-efficient (47.4km/litre) engine with Idling Stop technology – premium LED lights and all-round style and comfort create a compelling package.
Compact dual LED headlights give a sporty edge and maintain light distribution with the arrangement of low-high-low beams.
The large left hand fairing pocket will happily hold a water bottle or drinks can. It also contains the 12V AC adaptor for charging a phone. There’s under seat storage for a full-face helmet and the stepped seat itself has a sprung hinge, so it stays up when open.
Seat height is a very manageable 760mm with a ‘straddling’ height of 540mm. Both the seat and fuel lid are opened via one-touch switches and the ignition has a key shutter for extra security.
A central console presents all the information within a neat, concise design. Speed is displayed by a luminous needle moving around the outside of the LCD panel, which contains an odometer, trip meter, fuel gauge, the additional fuel efficiency meter and clock.
The 2017 Honda PCX125 is powered by a liquid-cooled SOHC two-valve 125cc engine that produces 12bhp and 12Nm of torque. Critical of course is its impressive fuel economy of 47.4km/litres without Idling Stop (WMTC mode). This results in a tank range of over 375km thanks to the eight litre tank.
