Review of the Honda PCX 125. Also see another review I’ve posted about the replacement seat I’ve just fitted.
1st Price for making a bike ugly !
One of my favs. Would have bought one if it had ABS. Ended up with her big sister instead.
I have a scooter this week. Driveability perfecto little windy to dam up to 70 km_h. I feel a little sorry that it s not 11kw but 8,4-6 ? But satisfaction. sry language. from slovakia.
Can you post where in China you are getting your replacement seat from, thanks. The seat’s the ONLY thing that puts me off this bike!! Thanks GadgetEnquirer
Great review, thanks for uploading 🙂
Why not take your full test I did passed and went on the motorway I don’t have this scooter but have a 125cc sym scooter and go everyware on it
sold my honda cbr 600 rr 2013 and buying this. people say me crazy but i think this is better and safe.
It looks beautiful. Most scooters look quirky and have an awkward shape sometimes. This bike has a very simplistic and sporty style without trying to over compensate the fact it is not a motorcycle.
That hump goes away the less you fill up. That’s what a pcx owner in Egypt told me.
16 coca- colas and a baguette. That’s a balanced diet right there.
I’m 1.69m (5ft 5″) and don’t have a problem with the hump. In fact, it is perfectly positioned for my size. It’s the height of the rider and the inseam that is the issue. However, i wonder why it isn’t an issue for you given your 6ft4 height 🙂 Perhaps you’re accustomed to what i’d call the ‘foetal/crouching tiger’ position 😉
I considered the Yamaha BWs 125, but it was too high for me (780mm). It would, however, be good for those who have a problem with the PCX’s seat height and hump.
how am i gonna carry a 30 pack? i like the scooters with the flat floor.
Nice job – thinking of getting one of these to commute and keep the miles off my Bandit. Just to help you out, the grille on the right side is in fact where the radiator is located for the water cooling system, the black box above the swing arm on the left is your air intake.
Have you had a chance to ride it for extended high speeds yet, and if so, how does it handle it? Is the windblast manageable? What’re the service intervals/costs like?
You’re right. I meant to say radiator.
whats the power like? Does it have enough pull/power?
My pcx 150 is awesome shitty back tires though.
im getting one in one week are they as good as people say,ive looked at the reviews and everyone is positive
Nice video! Just a tip though, to close the ignition shield, you don’t need the key. Just pull that protruding piece of metal up ;). Also the taller windscreen is not perfect but it’s an improvement over the stock. Also, if you don’t use the bike every day, don’t use the idle stop feature, or it will drain your battery dry. One last thing. That pretty chromed handlebar will rust like hell unless you regularly apply like WD40 or something like that. I was pretty disappointed with that little detail being used to other bigger Honda bikes and the usual quality.
Very enlightened view – that motorcycles are stuck in the dark ages with their clunky gears. I always took it as a given and never questioned it until your perspective, and i think you put a comment in ‘motorcyclenews’ as well.
I was inclined toward a geared bike, but after the TOO basic training given at the CBT stage for those new to geared bikes – which puts riders and others in danger – i moved toward considering the PCX. And that is what i’ll get. Thanks muchos!
i got a white pcx 125 one it is one of the best scooters iv ever had
m hoping to change it next year iv had it since may 2012 very comfy nice to ride on a local scale cause its 125 and im still on cbt certicate
Is this better than the SH 125?
thats economic scooters no 700 integra
Does this scooter have power. Like pick up. Or is it slow
Glad you’re happy with the PCX which is a nice scooter but, to be fair, the ‘jerkiness’ on your VL125 was not caused by the throttle, but rather your inability to use the clutch correctly!!!
This is a very nice looking scooter? Where you got your top case and which lock you recommend?
jerky jerky lol
True. I learnt to use a geared bike 20+ years ago when i took lessons and didn’t have problems with any jerkiness after a while. It’s the skill. But i think the point made by GE is that one has to get past this hurdle in the first place, whereas with a scooter, one doesn’t.
I just sat on the PCX 125 today in Chelmsford and i must say the hump on the seat is perfectly positioned….for me. The height is perfect too as i can place my feet just about flat on the ground. My height is 1.69m. So i’d say anyone of the same height or slightly more will love the feel.
Additionally, the bike feels really well-made when i sat on it. I’d say it feels better than it looks.
This is my best scooter ever and I had many…
Good video mate. Iv had my pcx for 2 years from new and just love it. Only problem is the seat hump holds water and is a bit of a pain.
