Sharper Than Ever, And Just As Versatile…
The Honda PCX150 is one of the most versatile, practical and sensible scooters on the planet, and a blast to ride! With new colors for 2016, it offers excellent fuel efficiency and plenty of room to carry a passenger. A large fuel tank gives you a long range, while dual headlights and sharp bodywork for a great look. Integrated storage for those trips to the market? Of course. Automatic transmission? Naturally.
Power To The People.
With its 150cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engine, the PCX150 is great for urban commutes, trips around town, and is freeway-legal, should you need to head onto the highway.
Go Further On A Tank.
How far can you go on a tank of gas? With its 100-miles-per-gallon fuel efficiency and a large gas tank, the PCX150 makes even more sense.
Dual front LED headlights along with bold bodywork really make the PCX150 stand out. Who says practical can’t also be stylish?

2016 Honda PCX150 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
Engine & Drivetrain
Reduced rolling resistance
Rolling resistance within the transmission unit is reduced by the use of three low-friction main bearings, each specifically designed to deal with the loads it individually receives.
Reduced frictional losses
A compact high-efficiency radiator – integrated into the exterior of the right-side crankcase – employs a small, light fan reducing frictional losses, lowering drag.
Turn the throttle and go
A compact combustion chamber and PGM-FI fuel injection system optimize burning rate, tailoring torque characteristics to suit the rpm ranges typically used in urban situations.
Easy automatic transmission
A V-Matic wide-ratio continuously variable transmission employs a quiet, durable drive belt, manufactured from high-elasticity rubber, delivering efficient drive to the rear wheel.
The electronically controlled brushless ACG starter is an integrated component mounted directly on the end of the crankshaft. Serving as both starter motor
Technologies designed for efficiency
The engine layout is built around a host of low-friction technologies working in harmony. An offset cylinder reduces friction caused by contact between piston and bore efficiently transmitting combustion energy to the crankshaft. A ‘spiny’ cast-iron sleeve – with tiny surface extensions – reduces distortion of the inner bore diameter allowing lowered tension in the piston rings, reducing friction. A shell-type needle bearing is used for the rocker arm shaft while small and light rollers work in conjunction with carefully chosen cam profiles and low tension valve springs to minimize valvetrain friction.
A blast to ride
The lightweight and compact liquid-cooled SOHC two-valve 153 cc engine powering the PCX150 offers high durability with excellent performance, plus quiet, smooth operation and reduced CO2 production.
Chassis & Suspension
A commanding view of the road from the broad, plush seat helps you choose the best path through urban congestion.
Improved fuel efficiency
A tight 2m turning radius, allows easy manoeuvring in tricky spaces, while 5-spoke 14” cast aluminum wheels add stability and rider confidence. Special Dunlop tires – with a compound designed to reduce drag – are fitted and contribute toward improved fuel efficiency.
Combined braking system
An advanced Combined Braking System links the front and rear wheels for balanced stopping when pedestrians or other road users do the unexpected.
Durable tubular steel underbone frame features a short 1,315 mm wheelbase and optimized steering geometry to provide nimble handling and a stable, comfortable experience for rider and passenger.
The low-slung fuel tank is mounted under the floorboards to keep the center of gravity low, enhancing maneuverability around urban obstacles.
Transferable one-year, unlimited-mileage limited warranty; extended coverage available with a Honda Protection Plan.
A hazard function that flashes all four turn signals provides additional conspicuity when needed.
Versatile store & charge
12V power outlet in the glove compartment allows convenient charging of personal electronics.
Opening both the seat and fuel lid is via one-touch switches. The seat features a sprung hinge so it stays up when open.
Handy glove compartment up front allows quick access to the essentials gum, sun glasses, cell phone, wallet or even a bottle of water.
Protection from dirt
Protective bodywork sweeps back into generous floorboards for the feet, that help shield the rider from urban grime.
Information at a glance
A central console presents all the information within a neat, concise design. Speed is displayed by a luminous needle moving around the outside of the LCD panel, which contains an odometer, trip meter, fuel gauge, plus the new for 2015 fuel efficiency meter and clock.
Convenient, spacious under-seat storage area easily accommodates a laptop or most full-face helmets.
New lights, new look
Sporty but elegant styling is never out of place and is complimented by full LED lighting.
