Honda PCX125 Bike Overview
If you are looking for a scooter which is economical to ride, looks good and is perfect for the daily commute then Honda‘s PCX125 is going to be right up your street. This four stroke scooter is the first ever two-wheeler to feature a fuel-saving idle stop system; if you are stationary for more than 3 seconds then the engine cuts out. Whether you think this is a necessary addition to the bike or nothing more than a gimmick, you can’t deny that every little helps when it comes to saving fuel, especially when you are commuting and potentially sitting in traffic for a large portion of time.
Aside from this, the PCX125 has a liquid-cooled, 4 stroke, 2V engine which is as good at 70mph as it is cruising around the city. It is quick to start and owners describe it as a nippy machine which they are proud to be seen on the back of especially when you consider it against other scooters it really is in a league of its own. It offers plenty of leg-room and practical storage options too. Whilst many owners report loving the bike and state that they would be happy to take it out on longer journeys as well as those around more urban areas, the bike does have some issues with rear suspension and struggles with big bumps or ruts in the road.
Perhaps the best part however is that despite offering far more than your average scooter, the PCX125 is very competitively priced with cheap insurance and low tax. Combine this with the fuel economy it offers and you have yourself a nice all-round package.

This scooter is Awesome and goes really fast when needed. Great Mielage and Good storage compartment . I travel through motorway at 50/mph twice a week , and this scooter hasn't failed to surprise me with maneuverability. It's idle start / stop at traffic , is great feature to save Petrol and it has always started at first go . I ride my scooter almost everyday or second day , It has good pick up 0 – 60 km and good set of break . I have left few motorcycle's of its weight & cc behind , when needed would be good if it went beyond 60/mph . Seat is quiet comfortable , Good leg space for rider and Rear set for pillion too . I would Highly recommend it . Very reliable !!
Seating not comfortable for long trips makes back ache,handlebars to wide & to high, no clock
Fuel economy, cheap parts smooth engine which performs very well
Immobiliser, bigger space under the seat.
Tyres are so slim in order to achieve fuel economy, therefore road handling is poor.
Great sprinter but after 50mph the performance is poor.
A tank of fuel which is around 8litres it goes around 110miles
No problems so far.
Nimble light easy to handle with auto transmission good acceleration and braking. Also very good storage capacity.
Just a tad more power at the top end would make it perfect.
For a scooter handles superbly and very smooth with the auto transmission and very lightweight to handle. A superb urban tool.
Would benefit from a few extra horse power as it only produces 11.5 bhp I believe the limit due to uk learner regs is 15 so if the engine could be uprated to this would give a bit more for those motorway trips as with the current output one is mixing with HGVs more than one would wish.
Well It does 135mpg more or less all the time as for overall running costs very cheap insurance about £80 tax £21. I got this bike as I am getting older a cannot handle the larger bikes I used to all 600cc plus so a cost comparison cannot be made as the big bikes cost a lot more to run.
Looks and feels very solid and has not given any problems at all so far.
Brakes are fantastic and grip is good they fill me with confidence on the frantic urban trips I do. It appears to be a front rear balanced system. But no ABS.
It is heavy but smooth
Not that powerful but good to get me to work and back
Don't know how much it costs me only had it 3 days
It is built well and no I have never had any problems with
No I don't know the braking system but it breaks can it good
