2018 Honda PCX125 Scooter comes with a new chassis, new rear suspension
2018 Honda PCX125 Scooter: Honda has shown the upgraded PCX125 scooter for 2018, using natural new shapes interspersed among the conventional PCX flowing design outlines. Also new is a metal duplex framework, new brakes, along with tyres and an updated rear suspension. Underseat storage was improved, the scooter has LED headlights and taillights and an LCD device console, using a blue backlit layout.
The superior peak power is accomplished using a bigger airbox, bigger throttle body, and upgraded exhaust internals. Also updated are the pulley wheels of this constantly variable transmission (CVT), which are bigger and feature compact profiles enlarging the array of gears.
According to Honda, this shift has caused a more powerful acceleration from the mid- and high revs. Fuel efficiency is a maintained 47.6 kmpl, along with the scooter also includes selectable idling stop mechanism, which automatically stops the motor running after three minutes at idle and re-starts it immediately with a twist of the throttle. Braking is handled with a 220 mm hydraulic disk gripped with a two-piston caliper using ABS on the front wheel, along with a 130 mm drum in the back.
The Honda PCX125 has offered over 1,40,000 units in Europe because of 2010, and together with all the upgrades such as 2018, Honda will aspire to rise to the achievement of the 125 cc maxi-scooter. Practicality has been among the PCX125’s most important advantages, also for 2018, under seat storage was improved to 28 liters, large enough to keep a full-face helmet with space to put away a couple more knick-knacks.
There is no word on Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) intending to start the PCX125 in India, however, with Suzuki preparing to start the Burgman Street 125 shortly, the entry maxi-scooter distance will surely open up new possibilities in the planet’s biggest two-wheeler marketplace.
