PCX discuss the concept of this machine and I’ll try to summarize in the text below.

Styling :

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).
