Hi guys, I will be arriving in Thailand in a few weeks and will be looking to get myself a bike for getting around. I have just seen a lot of news about the new Honda PCX. Has anyone ridden one of these yet and does anyone know the price and the best place to get one from? I will be staying in Hua Hin.

Many thanks.

Hi Slowtempo,

The official sales of the Honda PCX 125 will start in November, I belief that about 30 days or less before the official sales date you will see reviews of this motorcycle/scooter show up in the media.

So you have to wait a bit more...

The Honda PCX 125i scooter will go on sale in the USA and most European countries next month, so I believe you chances to get a English or even German or Spanish manual are looking pretty good....Thai Bike

On the right grip there is a switch that appears to be a on/off switch for the "engine off at temp stop". At 2 Honda dealers, neither could explain the switch purpose , in English or Thai.
I think it allows you to turn the "idle engine" on or off but I am not sure.I am currently riding a Honda Click and would like tyo pass my Click on to a Thai friend and purchase the PCX.
Any info out there?? Thx, George

The switch is indeed for turning off the engine stop-idle function... The Honda PCX is a marvelous machine

OK Richard, my next question about the PCX. Just how does the PCX start up when you have the "idle " switch on at a stop light?? Thx

The throttle on the Honda PCX is completely computer/electronic controlled, not like carburettor motorcycles/scooters where a wrist movement actually opens something mechanical in the carburettor. For the fully computer controlled Honda PCX nothing mechanical opens or closes when you open the throttle. A electronic sensor registers the position of the throttle and signals the ECU, the ECU controls the fuel-injection and the Alternative-Current Cell starter-motor which is powerful enough to start the engine before you can actual notice it – it is indeed very difficult to hear that the engine restarts because the starter motor is remarkable without sound...

I just got myself a pcx a great bike . I only problem is the service guys seem to not know to much about the new technology and the video they give you is all in Thai.

I have ordered a English version from Bangkok they say it will be delivered to Pattaya this week . Free I hope Thai Bike .

I can remember the first time I went for service for my girlfriend's Honda Wave 125i, also a fuel-injection motorcycle, the mechanics were really wondering what to do with that weird looking carburettor (which of course wasn't a carburettor).

This was a few years ago, currently most Honda dealers know what fuel-injection is, Honda is one of the few manufacturers which educates its “dealer” service mechanics. Road Cruise

I finally tracked one down. It's split into 3 PDF files .. so I popped them into a ZIP and uploaded it to my website.

Here's the link ..
