PCX150 for Sale at Springwood Honda in Springwood, QLD | Specifications and Review Information
Eye-catching looks have always been key to the PCX150's appeal and the natural contours and subtle chamfers give a strong substance to its trademark 'flowing' style. The PCX150 offers plenty of freedom to the rider with ample under-seat carrying capacity and crisp LCD instrumentation to match the LED head and tail lights. The tubular steel duplex frame maintains the PCX's around-town agility offering lightweight handling. Plus, ABS and an engine that produces more peak power while maintaining outstanding fuel efficiency makes the PCX150 an ideal all-rounder.
Selectable Idling Stop automatically stops the engine running after three seconds at idle and re-starts it instantly as soon as the throttle grip is twisted. It's seamless in use thanks to ACG and the swing-back system that returns the crank to its position before air intake, and a decompression mechanism that negates cranking resistance from compression. The Idling Stop system has the functionality to 'read' the battery charge and turn itself off to avoid excessive drain.
The SOHC, liquid-cooled two-valve 149cc enhanced Smart Power (eSP) engine powering the PCX150 offers compact durability with excellent performance away from the lights plus quiet, smooth operation and reduced CO2 production. At this stage of its development, more power at high rpm Ã¢â‚¬â€œ with no loss of torque down low - was the target for improved performance in higher speed ranges. To achieve the gain in power, the airbox now has a 1L larger volume than the previous design (achieved thanks to the rear shocks moving backwards). The intake is positioned to the left and the location and profile of internal parts have been revised to allow the smoothest airflow path possible.
ENHANCED SMART POWER ENGINE
The PCX150 boasts Honda's innovative eSP (enhanced Smart Power) engine, which employs a host of low-friction technologies to improve efficiency while also offering enhanced durability and quiet operation. The PCX150's engine also has a 'spiny' cast-iron sleeve - with tiny surface extensions - which keeps in check any distortion of the inner bore diameter. This design lowers tension in the piston ring, reducing friction. A shell-type needle bearing is used for the rocker arm shaft while small and light rollers work in conjunction with cam profile and valve spring load.
To make daily life that little bit more convenient it's fitted with the Honda Smart Key system. The Smart Key itself resides in the rider's pocket and does away with the need to constantly insert and withdraw a key for ignition, fuel cap, and seat. Revised instruments present analog speedometer and rev-counter dials flanking a digital display that can switch between 3 modes (controlled by a switch on the left handlebar): odometer, range remaining, and current fuel consumption; trip meter, average fuel consumption, and timer; or ambient temperature thermometer and battery sensor.
The V-Matic continuously variable transmission, maintains acceleration in the low-speed range (compared to the previous model) and delivers linear - and stronger - acceleration at mid-to high-speed. It also reduces belt friction, which contributes to outstanding fuel efficiency.
COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
The riding position ensures you'll have a clear view of the cockpit plus the use of black against chrome around the handlebars adds a premium touch, as do chromed, tapered handlebar bar ends. The large left-hand fairing pocket will easily hold a water bottle or can of drink and allow the rider to access the contents easily. It also contains a 12V AC adaptor. The central console design presents all the information neatly and concisely in an easy-to-read format. An inverted LCD displays the speed, while other information available includes odometer, trip meter, fuel gauge, average fuel consumption, and Idling Stop indicator.
From the front, the PCX150 also stakes out a strong identity; the LED headlights and razor-thin position lights slant independently upwards, with LED indicators discreetly filling out the upper, outer tips. This 'face' also changes subtly between high and low beams. The slim LED rear tail light/indicator unit is two-tiered and offers increased visibility.
Both the seat and fuel lid are opened via one-touch switches (the seat itself has a sprung hinge, so it stays up when open) and the ignition has a key shutter for extra security. The internal capacity of the under-seat storage is 28L and will easily hold a full-face helmet. The owner's manual and tool kit are located on the underside of the seat.
Perfect for learner riders, the PCX is LAMS approved.
