It sports a large windscreen and a full-LED headlamp with uniquely-designed LED turn indicators. The PCX 150 also gets a large seat with a tapered rear section that ends in an ‘X’ shaped LED tail lamp. The scooter’s edgy styling is further complemented by the 14-inch, 8-spoke alloy wheels at both ends.

The motor is capable of producing 13.3bhp of power and 14Nm of torque and comes mated to a CVT gearbox. Honda has also equipped the PCX 150 with a idle-start stop system to help conserve fuel. Interestingly, Honda also offers the PCX as a hybrid and fully-electric scooter in some international markets.

The Honda PCX also comes with an USB charger in the glove box and a fascinating welcome light, similar to the one found on car doors.
In terms of storage, the PCX 150 comes with a large 28-litre underseat capacity that can easily store a full-face helmet. Moreover, it also offers a fully-digital instrument cluster which displays speed, odometer, tachometer, clock and fuel gauge apart from other information.
