2011 Honda PCX Review


The 2011 Honda PCX was launched internationally as a fit for those looking for something more than an entry level scooter and smaller than a street bike. That is partially to do with the fact Honda hoped to reach out to first time buyers in the two-wheel market. The Honda PCX has maximum braking abilities due to a mechanism that prevents the back brake from engaging first. It also has attractive details that catch the eye and a seat that is the right height and the right width at the front to provide comfort and great handling for both short and tall riders. Stability is a benefit the Honda PCX offers as well, using a longer wheelbase than some scooters in its competition range.The Honda PCX also offers a center stand and a side stand for use during its off time. The ‘twist-n-go’ drive system specially offered by Honda avoids the need for manipulation of either shifters or clutches. This makes for another benefit for first-time riders.

In summary, the 2011 Honda PCX is a middle-of-the-road bike for those wanting the best of a street bike and a scooter. It has impressive fuel economy but better performance than simple scooters from other companies. Also, it is coupled with legendary Honda reliability, which ensures that it will be on the road for many years to come.
