The curb weight is really low at 286.  My Bet & Win weighs about 350. 

That will be a down right zippy scoot and easy throw about.

Sounds just about right for me then.    Seriously, I really like this scooter.  I'd love to have one as a little buddy for my Silver Wing.

We were going to get one of these or a Vespa 125/150 scoot for Serena (and me) before we moved to Boston.  While Serena liked her Grand Vista she didn't care for the 400lbs.  Traffic is to crazy here for her to ride... Serena's opinion not my own.

It looks like an awesome product from Honda but that 29.9 inch seat height kills it for my wife and other short people.

I'd say try to test in the showroom first before dismissing it.  You get some compression to the height when you sit on it, the seat is fairly narrow so your legs can drop straight down and it is very, very light.

We looked at the 2011 PCX125 and she couldn't flat foot it....2013 seems to have close to same specs just bigger engine.  Ended up buying a Honda Helix with 26.2 inch seat height.  The PCX150 would fit me just fine and I prefer that style but I wasn't the one buying it..lol

Our Honda dealer got one in today and it is sharp.  You can tell the engine is bigger and I like how it now says PCX150 on the sides.  3,449, they will be hot sellers!!

I hope your right! It is a very sharp looking scoot! Scooters need to take off in this country! (As far as sales)

For me, My Helix fits the bill & would have to die before I could justify owning one.

Howdy,

 I seem to recall reading somewhere on the internets about the PCX 150 having short (2,000 miles?) valve adjustment intervals; a deal-breaker if true. Otherwise, this scoot looks like the best thing since M&Ms.

Thanks for posting those.  Honda has really hit the nail on the head with this one.  Glad to see they put so much effort into a lower-priced bike.

I'm torn because I would want a more traditional look but this thing is just too good in so many ways.  Performance, light weight, storage, low price, mileage, etc.......

Wonder how much better the mileage would be if they could have sold us the version with the start/stop feature?

You know, the black one is almost butch.......
OK, so it's not but I still like it.

I hope that's not true. If it is they'd better be accessible and easy for a middling home mechanic. 14k is my minimum for valve adjustments.

Yeah but your B&W is a 250 isn't it?

Stock it is yes but it is modified to about 310cc. 

Still at that lower weight should still be able to zip about I would think....

So your Bet & Win's engine is about twice the size of the PCX's, yet it only weighs about 25% more. I don't know about cornering but off the line it sounds like your Bet & Win would eat the PCX for breakfast.

My Bet & Win eats 400cc scooters off the line so would have no issues with the PCX . Corners well just doesn't have that extra speed out of a corner like a bigger scoot.  

It's still my favorite scoot to ride of all 5 scoots we own.

I don't know how My Helix fares to the PCX. And I know it probably won't blow away any 400 cc scooter. My Burgman (as fun as it is) I'll probably sell someday for an upgrade.

Its my favorite! Hands down. Don't ask me to explain........

The difference is mine is modified from stock. I have alternating sized rollers, a big bore kit and racing clutch.  I won't beat a 400cc in the long run but for a bit it is fun.

I'm interested in the PCX150 by proxy since a buddy I ride with bought one because he wants to ride on the freeway with it and for some reason his Honda Ruckus just didn't cut it for that purpose I figured even the PCX was underpowered for freeway duty so I looked up some videos on YouTube to see what it could do and was really surprised to see it can go almost 130kmh/80mph. I figured it's top end would be closer to 110kmh/65mph. The even more amazing thing was, that it's predecessor, the PCX125 could do the same top speed.
