USED 2015 HONDA PCX150, Just had a second oil change.
The best-selling motorized two-wheeler in Europe is a Honda PCX. An interesting fact, given that Europeans know a thing or two about scooters. They have long recognized the user-friendly convenience, low cost of operation, low carbon footprint and the high fun factor that scooters bring to everyday transportation. Well it seems more and more Canadian city dwellers are figuring out that scooters may just be the perfect solution to high fuel prices, the high cost of parking and ever-increasing urban gridlock. A quick look at the changes to the 2015 PCX150 and it's easy to understand why it continues to be held in such high regard both in Europe and in Canada. Starting with the exterior styling, the 2015 PCX150 offers a more modern look while retaining the slim proportions that allow it to slip so easily through traffic. The new bodywork features full LED lighting that not only improves conspicuity but reduces electrical load on the alternator, thereby improving efficiency. Additional low-friction technologies utilized in the engine work with new low-rolling resistance tires to improve fuel economy even further. With fuel tank capacity increased by 2.1 liters to 8 liters and its new more efficient design, a 2015 PCX150 may be a rare sight at the pumps. Everyday convenience features now include a 12V power outlet, a hazard warning light system, a digital clock, a fuel efficiency meter, a larger left hand fairing pocket that can accommodate a water bottle and a sprung seat hinge that keeps the seat open when accessing the 25 liter underseat storage area.
With improved styling, even better fuel economy and a number of detailed improvements for 2015, the PCX may turn out to be Canada's best choice for commuting too.
PCX150 - the way to go.

|Engine / Drivetrain|
|The lightweight and compact liquid-cooled SOHC two-valve 153 cc engine powering the PCX150 offers high durability with excellent performance, plus quiet, smooth operation and reduced CO2 production.|
|The engine layout is built around a host of low-friction technologies working in harmony. An offset cylinder reduces friction caused by contact between piston and bore efficiently transmitting combustion energy to the crankshaft. A spiny cast-iron sleeve with tiny surface extensions reduces distortion of the inner bore diameter allowing lowered tension in the piston rings, reducing friction. A shell-type needle bearing is used for the rocker arm shaft while small and light rollers work in conjunction with carefully chosen cam profiles and low tension valve springs to minimize valve train friction.|
|A compact combustion chamber and PGM-FI fuel injection system optimize burning rate, tailoring torque characteristics to suit the rpm ranges typically used in urban situations.|
|A compact high-efficiency radiator integrated into the exterior of the right-side crankcase employs a small, light fan reducing frictional losses, lowering drag.|
|The electronically controlled brushless ACG starter is an integrated component mounted directly on the end of the crankshaft. Serving as both starter motor and alternator it spins the engine directly when starting eliminating noise from starter gear engagement.|
|A V-matic wide-ratio continuously variable transmission employs a quiet, durable drive belt, manufactured from high-elasticity rubber, delivering efficient drive to the rear wheel.|
|Rolling resistance within the transmission unit is reduced by the use of three low-friction main bearings, each specifically designed to deal with the loads it individually receives.|
|Chassis / Suspension|
|Durable tubular steel underbone frame features a short 1,315 mm wheelbase and optimized steering geometry to provide nimble handling and a stable, comfortable experience for rider and passenger.|
|The low-slung fuel tank is mounted under the floorboards to keep the center of gravity low, enhancing maneuverability around urban obstacles.|
|A tight 2 m turning radius, allows easy maneuvering in tricky spaces, while 5-spoke 14-inch cast aluminum wheels add stability and rider confidence. Special Dunlop tires with a compound designed to reduce drag are fitted and contribute toward improved fuel efficiency.|
|A commanding view of the road from the broad, plush seat helps you choose the best path through urban congestion.|
|An advanced Combined Braking System links the front and rear wheels for balanced stopping when pedestrians or other road users do the unexpected.|
|Sporty but elegant styling is never out of place and is complimented by full LED lighting for 2015.|
|Protective bodywork sweeps back into generous floorboards for the feet, that helps shield the rider from urban grime.|
|Convenient, spacious under-seat storage area easily accommodates a laptop or most full-face helmets.|
|Opening both the seat and fuel lid is via one-touch switches. The seat features a sprung hinge so it stays up when open.|
|A central console presents all the information within a neat, concise design. Speed is displayed by a luminous needle moving around the outside of the LCD panel, which contains an odometer, trip meter, fuel gauge, plus the new for 2015 fuel efficiency meter and clock.|
|Handy glove compartment up front allows quick access to the essentials gum, sun glasses, cell phone, wallet or even a bottle of water.|
|12V power outlet in the glove compartment allows convenient charging of personal electronics.|
|A hazard function that flashes all four turn signals provides additional conspicuity when needed.|
