2013 Honda PCX150 Review: (Barely) Freeway Legal

2013 Honda PCX150 Scooter Review

In what may be one of the greatest two-wheeled bargains of 2012, Honda's old PCX125 becomes the PCX150 and gains 22 percent more motor for a price bump of only $50... but the biggest differentiator between old and new PCX models isn't just the incrementally larger engine, it's the fact that the new scooter is (barely) freeway legal.

Are there tradeoffs for the gain, or is this a case of win/win for scooter aficionados?

Find out in my 2013 Honda PCX150 Scooter Review.

As usual a nice, unbiased & honest review. However I’d appreciate some info on how the scooter deals with poor/damaged roads, potholes, bumps etc. in urban commuting, as a good (factory) dialed suspension seems to make quite a difference in scooter riding (e.g Honda and Piaggio are usually good and other brands not so much).

I find Honda’s own Elite just acceptable when dealing with this, I imagine that compared to that the PCX is quite an improvement.

The PCX handles potholes relatively well for a scooter– and it’s got more suspension than the Elite (.4 more inches at the front, and .3 more at the rear.) But it’s still a scooter; you simply can’t match the kind of ride you can get from a motorcycle.
