Got an invitation from the AHM to bloggers KoBoi, Saturday, June 26, 2010 with the theme “Riding Experience With PCX Honda 125.” at BONDIES Cafe & Lounge, Jl. Ampera Raya, Jakarta Selatan.
4 PCX motorcycles provided by AHM to do the tes on streets, Ok let do its..
PCX discuss the concept of this machine and I’ll try to summarize in the text below.
At Honda, ‘small-displacement’ never means a compromise on comfort or style. The PCX is a perfect example of this principle. Its styling is youthful with a long, low and curvaceous shape. Its unique front face and the flowing lines of its bodywork give it a dynamic presence and a luxurious feel. By day, the PCX is a quick and convenient way to get around, for work or play. By night, it easily adapts to the smartest venues in the city. It can also whisk a rider, passenger and light luggage out of town for a weekend. Wherever it goes, its original styling and air of confidence give it the quality of a true trend-setter.
A dark-tinted windscreen gives the scooter a modern image as well as providing wind protection for the rider. Its sleek contours integrate perfectly with the full-bodied front cowl. Its dual headlight design is flanked by sleek, upward-slanting indicators, giving the front an exclusive look. The high-tech instrument panel has a speedometer needle that sweeps the dial at ignition, hinting at the fun to come. The cockpit also features an indicator for the engine’s innovative Idle Stop switch, a fuel indicator and other practical readouts, adding to the vehicle’s modern feel.
The scooter incorporates a low seat height and long, spacious footrests creating a secure and relaxed ride feel that complements its smooth performance. The comfortable seat incorporates back support for the rider and a generous pillion area. Underneath, its lockable storage compartment holds a full-face helmet with room to spare. In addition, a convenient glove box is provided at the front. If more storage space is needed, the rear carrier can also carry a standard 26-litre top box (not included).
The technology built into the new PCX has been carefully chosen to create the most enjoyable experience possible in its class. Its engine operates with a quiet, smooth proficiency. With a lightweight, compact SOHC configuration, it is surprisingly powerful, delivering quick starting acceleration. It also integrates a liquid cooling system with the radiator built into the engine for compact size and light weight. The engine features a Honda PGM-FI fuel injection system that ensures seamless, effortless power delivery via the smooth V-belt transmission, while also reducing emissions and fuel consumption. The PCX delivers an impressive 28.6 miles per litre (130mpg)* with Idle Stop , which means plenty of riding enjoyment between trips to the service station to fill up its 6.2-litre tank.

Idle Stop Switch
The engine’s fuel efficiency is boosted even further by the addition of an innovative Id throttle grip is twisted. Idle Stop mode is enabled or disabled via a convenient switch on the right handlebar, and improves fuel efficiency by another 5%.*
Brushless ACG starter
A brushless ACG starter also contributes to fuel economy. This system has a dual purpose, functioning as a starter motor at ignition and afterwards generating electricity for such functions as the spark plug and lights. The brushless system was pioneered on our 50cc Zoomer, and is applied here for the first time on a 125cc scooter. Its compact size allows the engine’s size and weight to be reduced, while its low-friction operation results in high fuel efficiency and prolonged durability. The system also creates an amazingly hushed engine start-up.
The distinctive form of the PCX is based around a tubular steel underbone frame. Complementing the low seat and extended foot area, the 1,305mm wheelbase creates a feeling of easy, stable balance. The turning radius is short, easing manoeuvres in tight spaces.
High quality 14″ tyres add to the comfortable ride. The lightweight five-spoke cast aluminium wheels are stopped by a smooth-acting Combined Brake System. This system effectively equalises the forces applied to a 220mm front disc brake and a sturdy drum brake at the rear, giving smooth, progressive braking that adds to stability and boosts confidence.
The scooter’s suspension systems are developed for light, easy control and smooth comfort. A responsive ø 31mm telescopic front fork and a compliant unit swingarm rear suspension with dual dampers combine to ensure a stable, cushioned ride.
