2010 Honda PCX125 from United States of America
Honda quality and efficiency
I was driving a gas guzzling old Volvo and purchased my 2010 Honda PCX125 to commute. It was a great scooter. At 145lb, I found it to have adequate power. Not fast, but enough to maintain 55mph on steep hills. The combi-brake (both front and rear brakes apply in tandem) was a very nice feature to help with braking stability, especially as a first time rider. Safety first!
I kept track of my MPG over the years and saw anywhere from the high 70s to the mid 90s. I did gain 35lb during my ownership of the scooter and that had a huge impact on both fuel economy and performance. At 180lb, it just didn't have enough power for maintaining 55mph on hills anymore.
I hit a deer one night doing 45-50mph. The scooter frame was slightly bent. I was thrown off and broke my collarbone. I had the damages repaired through my insurance. The combi-brake never worked after that. I'm not sure if they failed to repair a damaged component or forgot to reassemble something.
I sold it 3 years after buying the scooter for about half the price I paid new.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
