The ever-popular PCX125 scooter gets a complete style upgrade for 2018, with natural new contours interspersed among the traditional PCX flowing design lines. It also receives a new tubular steel duplex cradle frame, new wheels and tyres and an upgraded rear suspension. Plus ABS, and an engine that produces more peak power while maintaining outstanding fuel efficiency.

Features

LED

From the front, the PCX125 also stakes out a strong identity; the LED headlights and razor-thin position lights slant independently upwards, with LED indicators discreetly filling out the upper, outer tips. This new ‘face’ also changes subtly between high and low beam. The slim LED rear tail light/indicator unit is still two-tiered, but larger in size for increased visibility.

New Style

The new PCX125 expands on the original strong bodywork, and employs new, natural contours of continuously varying curves, delivering a strong visual statement with an upmarket feel. Again, the smooth, large areas are painted in the primary colour and link front to rear without interruption, and the lower bodywork is also much more integrated into the overall styling.

Engine Cover

Another detail redesign is the engine cover and airbox inlet, which are styled together as integrated parts. Finished in metallic silver, the engine cover emphasizes a solid mechanical strength; above it a black cover – which incorporates the air inlet – is elegantly shaped with a mixture of firm lines and softer curves.

Ease of use

The rider’s view of the cockpit has been enhanced – the use of black against chrome around the handlebars adds a premium touch, as do chromed, tapered handlebar bar ends. The large left hand fairing pocket will easily hold a water bottle or drinks can and now has an extended lid (compared to the old design) to allow the rider to access the contents easily. It also contains a 12V AC adaptor.

Sit tall

Seat height is up 4mm to 764mm, but still very manageable with a ‘straddling’ height of 540mm; the new bodywork allows the floor area to extend forward, giving more legroom. Both the seat and fuel lid are opened via one-touch switches (the seat itself has a sprung hinge, so it stays up when open) and the ignition has a key shutter for extra security.

Plenty of storage

Internal capacity of the underseat storage is 28L, and will easily hold a full-face helmet. The owner’s manual and tool kit are now located on the underside of the seat.

Easy to see

A new central console design presents all the information neatly and concisely in an easy-to-read format.

LCD

An inverted LCD displays the speed, while other information available includes odometer, trip meter, fuel gauge, average fuel consumption and Idling Stop indicator.

Full steel

The 2018 PCX125 has a new chassis; the tubular steel ‘underbone’ design of the previous model has been replaced with a full steel duplex cradle. This has improved the machine’s handling ability and feel, without losing the in-town manoeuvrability, plus its user-friendliness and relaxed riding position.

Smart Power Engine

The SOHC, liquid-cooled two-valve 125cc enhanced Smart Power (eSP) engine powering the PCX125 offers compact durability with excellent performance away from the lights plus quiet, smooth operation and reduced CO2 production.

Low fuel consumption, high preformance

Eye-catching looks have always been key to the PCX125’s appeal, and for its 2018 upgrade upgrade natural contours and subtle chamfers give an even stronger substance to its trademark ‘flowing’ style. But there’s function too; more freedom to move for the rider, increased underseat carrying capacity and crisp LCD instrumentation to match the LED head and tail-lights.
