The Honda PCX is a scooter developed by Honda. It was produced by Thai Honda Manufacturing until 2013; starting from 2014 it is produced by Honda Vietnam. The Honda PCX was first introduced for sale in November 2009.[9]

History[edit]

2011[edit]

In 2011, the Honda PCX 150/125 was revealed to the world and sold in some Asian and European markets.

2012 update[edit]

In 2012, the original engine was redesigned to decrease friction, increasing efficiency, and the displacement was increased to 152.9 cc (9.33 cu in).[10] The new engine is based on Honda's eSP (Enhanced Smart Power) design.[11] Honda continues to produce the 125 cc (7.6 cu in) version (with eSP) for export to select markets,[12][13] such as Europe, where local licence requirements favour this engine displacement.

2014[edit]

In 2014, Honda PCX received a major facelift. Including new LED headlights, redesigned body, and a few other tweaks.[14]

2018 update[edit]

Honda unveiled two new version of Honda PCX at 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, hybrid and electric version. The new version of Honda PCX is expected to launched to public in 2018.[15]

Technology[edit]

The global version of the Honda PCX is equipped with an idling stop system, which automatically shuts off the engine after a few seconds of idle.[16] This feature is not included on the US/Canada model due to safety concerns, having a kill switch and a parking brake instead.[17] To prevent excessive wear on a separate starter motor, the Honda PCX uses its alternator by supplying power to the stator (see Brushless DC electric motor). As a result, engine start is completely muted. This same technology was released in the new 2018 Honda Goldwing.[18]

Other Honda 125/150 scooters with eSP share a common engine with the Honda PCX.[19]
