    I wonder if they might have a larger model in the pipeline... 200cc, for example? 125cc is really kinda small for me to go back to, but if they had 200cc option I would consider it as a replacement for my 'nearly perfect but a bit short on storage space' HD200...

    wish we got US option of Cherry Red!
     

    Good find! Yes, the three colours supplied to the Oz market are so DULL! It needs some bright colours to make it stand out!

    And the only other thing that doesn't look good in the photos is the skinny tires. Need some FAT on it!!

    i got to see two white ones in the flesh yesterday. they are a very nice scooter. look a lot smaller in real life than in the pictures. which to me is a good thing. the photos made them look like a maxi scooter. they look great, the front end ties up with the vfr1200. i noticed non adjustable rear suspension. the guys in the shop were trying to work out where it came from. they were thinking spain? as the vin code was different to a thailand sourced vehicle.

    For the price I would expect to have a disc brake on the rear wheel it would make them being combined more efficient.

    A few years ago I remember reading an article about some modern cars still using drums on the rear and it was said that there were advantages to drums. One of course, is they maintain performance in the wet (because they don't have a disc to get slippery and loose gripping power) and they are easier to connect a handbrake to. It was also said that a disc/drum setup on a car combined with ABS can still perform extremely well. I've found this to be the case on my car, whihc runs a disc/drum ABS setup and the brakes work almost too good! The response is immediate and ridiculously effective! So a drum can still work well!

    i agree, my car has front disc and rear drum. very effective, sometimes too effective.

    no i can't remember any numbers they were quoting for the vinSad

    I have a test mule in the garage now, certainly no problem with rear drum as brakes are linked so even when you pull on the left lever you still get a piston braking on the front as well as the back. So brakes work well. Yeh would like a disc for that price but other features make up the price for me

    ah the PCX is a sexy looking scooter, especially in white! Nah I haven't started selling for Honday, I just like the look of this beast.

    I saw a silver one today, a very nice piece of kit. looks like a mini superbike from the front. Quite thin tyres bit like a postie on steroids. Cant wait to toss my leg over one.
