PCX125A

Honda’s popular PCX125 evolves its style with a crisper edge. It also features more under seat storage, a USB Type-C charging socket and Smart Key operation. Power is drawn from a new, enhanced Smart Power Plus (eSP+) four-valve EURO5-specification engine, now with Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC). A redesigned frame incorporates longer suspension travel at the rear, and larger-sized tyres.

At a Glance:

  • Bodywork completely redrawn in crisp evolution of the futuristic looks.

 

  • New LED headlight features signature running light.

 

  • More room under the seat; USB charging socket in the glove box.

Features

LED

Premium LED lighting also sets the PCX125 apart from the crowd. The headlight is new and features a signature running light with 5 narrow flash lines positioned in parallel. It’s matched to an X-shaped taillight using multi-optic technology to give an intense, 3D effect.

New Style

The new PCX125 lines and angles have been subtly re-carved, to dramatic effect. The front fairing flares in its upper portion but elegantly draws in at the waist; alongside a slightly larger, blacked-out screen this produces improved wind protection without excess bulk.

Engine Cover

Through the 2021 update the engine cover and swingarm have been redesigned to complement the new bodywork. Revisions to internal structure of the muffler and the repositioning of the catalyser have enhanced gas purification performance, helping the engine secure EURO5 compliance.

Smart Key

A Smart Key is also a fresh addition to the PCX125’s armoury. As well as controlling the main ignition switch knob and compartment locking it can also manage the (optional) 35L removable Smart top box. With the Smart Key in the rider’s pocket the box is unlocked, and automatically locks when the rider walks away. It can also be locked from the key.

Sit tall

The seat is contoured for both rider/pillion comfort and easy ground reach; there’s also 30mm extra foot space forward and at the sides. Seat height remains 764mm, but is very manageable with a ‘straddling’ height of 540mm.

Easy to see

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

LCD

A new, ‘widescreen’ central console instrument layout presents all information neatly and concisely, in an easy-to-read format. 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 new PCX125 has a redesigned duplex steel cradle frame designed to deliver the durability needed for the rigours of urban life, without losing the in-town manoeuvrability the PCX has always been famous for, 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.

Eye-catching

Eye-catching looks have always been key to the PCX125’s appeal, and for its 2021 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.
