2024 Honda PCX Scooter Preview

Honda keeps the easy-riding PCX in the scooter line for 2024.

American Honda has announced the return of its purposeful PCX scooter for 2024, a tried-and-true urban commuter that makes riding as easy as can be. The highway-capable 157cc single-powered machine will be available in Matte Brown Metallic only and will be priced at $4,249, a $100 increase over the 2023 Honda PCX.

As with last year’s model, the PCX will be available in the ABS version only. The news comes on the heels of a number of carryover models for Big Red, though unlike bikes like the CBR600RR, the PCX has enjoyed a fairly recent update.

For 2021, Honda engineers revised the single cylinder, increasing output to 157cc thanks to a new valve design and revised bore and stroke. The frame was updated to reduce overall weight, LED lighting was added throughout, and styling tweaks gave the platform a refreshed look.

For those needing a convenient urban ride, the PCX remains a compelling option. The generous underseat storage area is capable of holding a full-face helmet, the V-Matic auto transmission is a truly simple twist-and-go setup, the hydraulic cam-chain adjuster aids in reducing the amount of ongoing maintenance riders need to be concerned with, and the nimble chassis provides effortless handling. Even with the slight price increase, the PCX remains a budget-friendly machine that is as approachable as it gets.
