Honda NSS300 and PCX Now Available in Candy Caribbean Blue Sea
Boon Siew Honda continues its product offensive for 2017 with the launch of the latest version of the NSS300 and PCX scooters, which feature a new colour scheme called Candy Caribbean Blue Sea.
First launched in Malaysia in 2014, the NSS300 is a sleekly styled premium mid-size scooter that offers excellent comfort and value.
It is powered by a liquid-cooled, 279 cc single cylinder engine that churns out 25.5 hp at 7,500 rpm and 26 Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm. The output is sent to the rear wheel via a V-Matic continuously variable transmission.
Sharp appearance aside, the NSS300 also provides practicality through its twin halogen headlights and instrument cluster. The latter features a speedometer, clock, dual trip-meters plus fuel and temperature gauges and oil level warning light.
The scooter is also equipped with a utility box underneath the seat that can store two full face helmets, as well as ABS for added safety.
Also available in the existing Pearl Himalayas White and Seal Silver Metallic colour schemes, the new NSS300 is priced from RM30,727.28 (recommended showroom price with GST, without road tax, insurance and registration). It is backed by a two-year or 20,000-km manufacturer warranty.
The PCX made its first appearance in Malaysia in 2012, followed by an updated version in 2015. The latest iteration of the scooter retains its liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 149 cc engine that produces 12.5 hp at 8,500 rpm and 13 Nm at 5,500 rpm.
Fuel is fed to the engine via the PGM-FI electronic fuel injection system, while power is channeled to the rear wheel through the V-matic transmission.
Tipping the scales at 131 kg, the PCX features a telescopic suspension up front and a twin setup at the rear. It gets plenty of braking power from a hydraulic front disc and a rear drum brake.
Apart from the new shade, the PCX can be had in Asteroid Black Metallic and Pearl Metalloid White as before. It can be yours from RM11,658.94 (recommended showroom price with GST, without road tax, insurance and registration). It comes with a manufacturer warranty of two years or 20,000 km.
