Honda PCX 150 – general description
Honda PCX is a highly regarded and popular scooter in Thailand. Its advantages are quiet engine operation and a comfortable seat. This scooter, although it comes under the category of maxi scooters is really light.
Designers gave the Honda PCX 150 a more modern, sport look, and in addition they added a few details that affect the comfort of use. LEDs have been installed in all lamps, an emergency button has been added, a cockpit timer and a 12-volt socket for eg charging the phone. Under the seat of the Honda PCX 150 there is a place to fit the helmet.
Honda in a press release emphasizes that the modifications also concerned fuel savings. Two years ago a new engine with reduced vibrations was introduced. In the 2014 model, the drive unit was even more refined from this angle, which resulted in lower fuel consumption. Also, the use of LED lights has reduced the load on the engine in terms of generating electricity. Further savings were achieved thanks to the use of tires with lower rolling resistance.
The manufacturer claims that a liter of fuel now allows you to drive 44 km (2.27 l / 100 km), and an increased tank from 5.9 to 8 liters allows you to drive up to 350 km on a single tank.
A single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with a capacity of 149 cc allows for a quick start. From zero to 50 km / h it accelerates in 4.9 seconds. The engine reaches its maximum power – 13.6 HP at 8500 RPM. This allows you to achieve a speed of over 100 km / h.
