    Great write up boys, couldnt see if they now have LED tail or headlights.


    Ps the braking should be 70% front and 30% rear.

    Sure? There are changes to the 2015 LED lights anyway. The lighting is terrific at night. Lights up the whole road on the low beams and almost a spotlight on high.

    Honda is calling it the 2015
    2015 PCX150 Overview - Honda Powersports

    The original PCX 2009-10 had the hump. You could unbolt the hump leaving two holes in your seat. I think it then became optional?

    That's a US site? asks to enter a zip code to find a dealer. That model will have fuel marked in gallons,speed in mph and possibly some other differences for the US market?

    In Asia it's the latest 2014 model,has fuel marked in litres and speed in kph?

    I,and others, have a 2013 PCX 150 with a seat hump on it....same motor and bike except a few subtle differences as noted.

    It's in kph. I see the bike as the 2015 PCX in most places. I think the marketing is just inconsistent.

    Even in Oz they're calling it a new 2014 model...seems the US is behind the times 555

    An improvement on an already well established up market scoot…. Honda surely have a winner with the PCX 150.

    The bloated, ugly Tricity is a loser by comparison.

    Just to clear up a couple of things.

    The steel cable or bungy as mentioned under the seat is for locking a helmet onto the hook at the front of the under seat compartment. Thread it through a steel buckle on the helmet and put the 2 eyes of the cable onto the hook under the seat then lock the seat.

    The 3 calliper thing on the front brake is a 3 piston brake calliper.

    Great reports guys
    I think you should keep them coming (how about some bar reports too?)

    The PCX is a large scooter though and takes a lot of space to park. Certainly more than the Yamaha TriCity.
    Not being a step through means you cannot easily carry a carton of beer or a twin pack of 6 litre water.

    I found the Yamaha TriCity great in heavy Patong traffic but the PCX seems even wider.
    Any one been threading theirs through tight traffic?

    Looks like your "2105" PCX will be trumped as soon it hits the showroom floor by a "baby Forza" 125.

    The big H's new 'high-performance 125cc scooter'.

    HONDA has just unveiled what the firm is calling a new 'high-performance 125cc scooter for 2015'.

    The Forza 125 makes 14hp, does a claimed 123mpg and comes with ABS as standard.


    The new 125cc liquid-cooled engine is a four-valve unit with an intake and exhaust system designed for strong mid-range and top end power. It offers swift pick-up from standstill, class-leading rolling acceleration from 55mph and strong high-speed performance. A host of low-friction technologies mean that this is combined with impressive fuel economy of approximately 123mpg (WMTC mode).

    To manage city streets and cruise open highways, the steel frame - with carefully optimised wheelbase and steering geometry - employs supple 33mm telescopic forks and twin rear shock absorbers. A 15-inch front wheel provides stability and confidence, backed up by the 14-inch rear. Large diameter single disc brakes front and rear come with ABS as standard.








    Honda unveils new Forza 125 scooter - Motorcycle news: New bikes - Visordown

    4 valve head and bigger front wheel is a big plus in LOS if they are released here.

    Mmm, my travel insurance only covers me up to 125cc; the point TLH made about step thru, I don't particularly like them but they are 100% handy around the baan for the many many local shopping trips; when I was in Cambo a step through taxi bike took me and my large wheely from the bus station to my hotel in PP.
