STYLISH, LIGHTWEIGHT AND FUEL EFFICIENT
The SOHC, 149cc liquid-cooled two-valve enhanced Smart Power (eSP) engine powered by the PCX150 provides lightweight reliability with excellent light output plus calm, smooth operation and reduced CO2 emissions. More power at high rpm, with no low torque loss, was the goal for better output at higher speed ranges.
ENHANCED SMART POWER ENGINE
PCX150's engine also has a 'spiny' cast-iron sleeve that prevents any distortion of the inner bore diameter in place. A shell-type needle bearing is used for the rocker arm shaft while small and light rollers operate in combination with the cam profile and the spring load of the valve.
Selectable Idling Stop immediately prevents the engine running idle after three seconds and re-starts it instantly as soon as the throttle handle is turned. The Idling Stop device has the potential to 'sense' the battery charge and turn it off to prevent unnecessary runoff.
The V-Matic continuously variable transmission retains low-speed acceleration (compared to the previous model) and provides linear – and faster – acceleration at mid-to high-speed. It also decreases pressure on the pipe, which leads to excellent fuel efficiency.
Both the seat and the fuel lid are opened by one-touch switches and the ignition has a main shutter for extra protection. The internal storage capacity is 28L and can comfortably accommodate a full-face helmet.
The PCX150 also has a clear appearance from the front; LED headlights and razor-thin place lights slant upwards individually, with LED markers discreetly rounding out the top, outer ends.
