Honda PCX 160
The Honda PCX has already made a mark as a scooter that pampers riders with its wide, well-cushioned seats and ample-spaced step board. The bike offers an upright riding position that is comfortable even during heavy traffic.
The PCX’s two-step seat and high-positioned foot pegs give the passenger a good sense of safety by having a good view of what’s up ahead. The grab rail, however, needs to be stretched a bit to prevent the pillion rider from moving backward just to get a safer grip.
There was also an improvement in the locking system of the underseat compartment. Unlike the one on the current PCX, which takes several attempts to close, the locking mechanism here catches the seat’s metal U-bar with precision. That’s the fit and finish Honda motorcycles are known for.
The new scooter is packed with a bit of additional power after Honda increased the engine capacity from 149cc to 157cc. Its little mill now produces 15.6hp, as compared to the PCX150’s 13.3hp. The new eSP+ (Enhanced Smart Power Plus) engine technology still applies a four-valve, SOHC, liquid-cooled layout.

Introducing the 2021 Honda PCX150,
While qualities like fuel economy, simple operation, congestion-busting maneuverability and ease of parking are all factors with most scooter purchases, Honda’s PCX has long shown that such practical considerations needn’t come at the cost of a comfortable ride. Now for 2021, the PCX gets a significant upgrade that includes new, elegant styling, advanced equipment and a larger engine that is freeway-capable. Equally suitable for new riders and more experienced customers, the PCX offers a relaxed, fulfilling ride in a wide variety of situations, including around-town travel, highway commuting and suburban touring. It’s still the ultimate tool for tackling urban environments in style, but it has also evolved to a new level of comfort.
Since it was introduced abroad in 2009, the PCX125 (as it was called then) has always been about a high-quality, relaxing scooter experience. It grew to a 150 in 2009, with the fuel-sipping eSP engine. LED lighting came five years later, and the PCX150 was first offered to U.S. customers in 2015. A new double-underbone frame structure offered an improved ride starting in 2018. For 2021, it has been renamed as the PCX.
THE 2021 PCX.
Scooters are such a perfect solution for so many of our transportation needs. You can park them just about anywhere. Zip through congestion. They’re affordable, and get great gas mileage. And when you’re on a Honda PCX, you get all of that combined with Honda engineering and quality. And here’s the best news of all: For 2021, the PCX is even better, because at Honda we take our scooters as seriously as everything else we build. That’s why we gave the PCX a new, larger engine, a new frame structure, and wrapped it all up in some tasty new styling too. And now the engine features a four-valve design too, making it cleaner and more economical. Around town or just cruising on a weekend, the new 2021 PCX isn’t just another scooter—it’s a premium Honda experience.
