INTRODUCING THE PCX150
Eye-catching looks have always been key to the PCX150’s appeal and for its 2019 upgraded natural contours and subtle chamfers give an even stronger substance to its trademark ‘flowing’ style. But there’s function too; more freedom to move for the rider, increased under-seat carrying capacity and crisp LCD instrumentation to match the LED head and tail-lights.
A new tubular steel duplex frame maintains the PCX’s around-town agility while improving handling; redesigned wheels save weight and wear larger tyres. The shock absorbers feature tri-rate springs and extended travel.
While maintaining its outstanding fuel efficiency, the engine makes more peak power, thanks to redesigned airbox, inlet and exhaust, without sacrifices at the bottom of the rpm range.
A design signature of the PCX150 has always been the bodywork – with its strong character line and ‘block’ primary paint colour – flowing together as a whole, front to rear. The new PCX150 expands on the theme, and employs new, natural contours of continuously varying curves, delivering a strong visual statement with an upmarket feel. Again, the smooth, large areas are painted in the primary colour and link front to rear without interruption, and the lower bodywork is also much more integrated into the overall styling.
Another detail redesign is the engine cover and airbox inlet, which are styled together as integrated parts. Finished in metallic silver, the engine cover emphasizes a solid mechanical strength; above it, a black cover – which incorporates the air inlet – is elegantly shaped with a mixture of firm lines and softer curves. From the front, the PCX150 also stakes out a strong identity; the LED headlights and razor-thin position lights slant independently upwards, with LED indicators discreetly filling out the upper, outer tips. This new ‘face’ also changes subtly between high and low beam. The slim LED rear tail light/indicator unit is still two-tiered, but larger in size for increased visibility.
The rider’s view of the cockpit has been enhanced – the use of black against chrome around the handlebars adds a premium touch, as do chromed, tapered handlebar bar ends. The large left hand fairing pocket will easily hold a water bottle or drinks can and now has an extended lid (compared to the old design) to allow the rider to access the contents easily. It also contains a 12V AC adaptor.
The new bodywork allows the floor area to extend forward, giving more legroom. Both the seat and fuel lid are opened via one-touch switches (the seat itself has a sprung hinge, so it stays up when open) and the ignition has a key shutter for extra security. Internal capacity of the underseat storage has been increased 1L to 28L, with no increase in body width, and will easily hold a full-face helmet. The owner’s manual and tool kit are now located on the underside of the seat. A new central console design presents all the information neatly and concisely in an easy-to-read format. An inverted LCD displays the speed, while other information available includes odometer, trip meter, fuel gauge, average fuel consumption and Idling Stop indicator.
The 2019 PCX150 has a new chassis; the tubular steel ‘underbone’ design of the previous model has been replaced with a full steel duplex cradle. This has improved the machine’s handling ability and feel, without losing the in-town manoeuvrability the PCX has always been famous for, plus its user-friendliness and relaxed riding position. Also (for the first time on a Honda scooter) a plastic main fairing stay has replaced the steel structure used before; this, and the frame redesign has shaved 2.4kg from the structure, further aiding agility.
Wheelbase is 2mm shorter at 1,313mm and overall kerb weight is 131kg. Tyre sizes are larger, 100/80-14 front and 120/70-14 rear (as opposed to 90/90-14 and 100/90-14) and combined with the new wheels not only ensure lighter handling but also contrib
