    I reckon that the only downside is that you have to buy one from a Honda dealer Stick out tongue

    Ouch!  Even expecting you won't pay duty next year, that's quite a bite for the CTP.  Over here CTP for a Fly 150 is just $134 (plus GST).

    Ouch!! Indeed,
    If this was a budget priced scooter with a sale price of, say $2390 ride away the government and insurance companies would be receiving about 25-30% of the purchase price, that more than the dealer gets??? As it is they are getting about 16% on the honda

    Yes Great Price = Value for Money!

     Well I have gotten about 120kms on the speedo now.  I think I have used about half the tank.

    I came down the M1 during the cager crawl.  This is a total new experience for me, never commuted like that, even in the car, except the odd time.  I felt really confident on the PCX.  Followed a bike up the shoulder for a km or so, and got caught up, but easily moved thru the traffic, It kept up with the flow (maybe around 80kms) (think the usual 8 - 10kms discrepincy speedo)  I got a little nervous when the traffic flowed at 100 or so, but that was also the approch to the 110 zone. I hoped off there and came the service roads.  Then back in a hundred zone along smith st.  Speedo hit 100 easy, and it had been drizzling when I came to the end and lights, but everything performed how it should.  The headlight is great,

    A really nice easy ride.  I think I a nice open road, this PCX will be a great mini tourer.  But around the city for those that need and enjoy getting thru the traffic easy & zippy will make it really easy to do.  I feel this is going to be a great loyal bike that I will be riding well for a long time.  I am going to be heading for a ride around the coast in the morning, and will maybe start a reveiw thread to keep you up to date.

     and before some of you jump back on a whine that you could get a scooter for half that that will do the same things.  The Honda PCX will be like all the other Honda bikes I know friends own.  Still doing the same job in 5, 10, 20 years time.

    good review. Your scoot will still be doing the same when the cheaper ones have had engine rebuilds then gone to the great twisty road in the sky. You also have a good dealership to back you up for servicing & parts, although you can take it to any qualified mechanic.

    I'm SO glad you've found a scoot you're so happy & impressed with. I'm just jealous & want one too. Big Smile

    What a fantastic scooter this Honda 125cc is. It is fast becoming the the cult scoot of its class. I'll have to test ride one one day. And compare it to the Italian SH series and the @125 and the Indian Lead.

    I remember this ad jingle from the 60's and its still in my mind. Talk about the power of advertising.

    "The best way to get from A to B, hop on a Honda.

    The only way to go economically.

    5 straight miles for a halfpenny or so,

    5 straight miles anywhere you want to go,

    The beach, the town, the country where breezes blow,

    Hop on a Honda and Go"

    except we used to sing "Greasers blow"

    Re: Honda PCX 125

     Hello,

    Thank you to everyone who has shared their experiences of this scooter.  It has been very useful. 

    I was wondering if anybody could share how much room there is under the seat?  How much stuff can be stored there?  

    I am very interested in this scooter but I reckon I would miss not having a shopping bag hook! Smile   But maybe it does have one? 

    Does the non-traditional seating arrangement of this scooter - more like a motorbike - make people feel like they have more on road balance and control and thus feel safer?

    Thanks from Happy
