Standing out as a best-seller worldwide thanks to its modern design and remarkable value for money in terms of initial purchase price, low operating costs and thrifty fuel efficiency. Stylish, nimble and incredibly practical, meet Honda’s most innovative scooter, the PCX150.The PCX150 boasts Honda’s innovative eSP (enhanced Smart Power) engine, which employs a host of low-friction technologies to improve efficiency while also offering enhanced durability and quiet operation.Honda was the first manufacturer, in 2006, to announce voluntary, per-unit CO2 emission reduction targets for all of its products and the plants that produce them. The new generation of engines as seen in the PCX150 represents a step forward in environmental terms in keeping with this approach. The 153cc single-cylinder, four-stroke, liquid-cooled SOHC two-valve unit employs a host of low-friction technologies to improve efficiency in terms of output and economy.The overall weight and physical dimensions of the engine have been minimized to allow a greater packaging choice around it for a variety of platforms to come.A compact combustion chamber, fed fuel/air mixture precisely by PGM-FI fuel injection, optimises burning velocity and cooling performance, tailoring torque characteristics to suit the rpm ranges typically used by a small capacity scooter rider. Smooth and extremely quiet starting is achieved by the electronically-controlled ACG starter and a decompression mechanism that reduces cranking resistance due to compression
The Idling Stop Switch is operated via a switch on the right handlebar. When enabled, the engine automatically stops running after three seconds at idle, and re-starts instantly when the throttle grip is twisted. A full function high-tech dash provides a speedo (with a needle that sweeps through its arc on ignition) and fuel gauge, plus indicator for the Idle Stop Switch.A V-Matic wide-ratio continuously variable transmission employs a quiet, durable drive belt manufactured from a newly developed high-elasticity rubber. It’s highly efficient in delivering drive to the back wheel and thereby optimising fuel economy. The Combined Brake System operates between the front 220mm front disc/three-piston calliper and 130mm rear drum, and equalises the braking forces for smooth, progressive and effective performance.A durable tubular steel underbone frame allows a low seat height (760mm) while the 1,315mm wheelbase and relaxed steering geometry combine to create a very reassuring and stable ride. The turning radius is a tight 1.98m, allowing for easy manoeuvres in tricky spaces, while 14” cast aluminium wheels add stability and rider confidence.
