Honda PCX 160 cc is a 2022 model, which boasts among its noteworthy features a rather remarkable convenience and comfort: in fact, those who have already had the opportunity to try this scooter have certainly appreciated the ergonomics of the seat (which is comfortable but also very roomy, with the 30-litre under-seat compartment) and the easy position of the controls, many of which are ultra-technological (the digital instrumentation is one of the strengths of this model).
If you are in Thailand for tourist reasons and therefore want to travel comfortably through the streets of the splendid cities (but also of the more uncomfortable villages on the hills) the choice of renting a scooter like this is very advantageous. On the one hand, you will be able to whiz comfortably through the city traffic (always paying attention to the speed limits and therefore to the highway code) while on the other hand you will have the opportunity to change your route at any time, because you will not have to comply with timetable and routes (as could happen when choosing public transport).
One of the strengths of this recent model is the underseat compartment, which as we have said is very spacious: if you are a tourist who has chosen to move around by scooter, you know very well how much difference it can make to have a large space to store your items and your backpack. Even the fuel tank has noteworthy features: in fact, with its 8-litre capacity, you can also cover long journeys without worrying excessively (however, it is advisable to plan your journeys well, especially at night, to avoid running out of water in the most desolate places).
As for the frame, it is light and resistant, as it is a single beam tubular steel: both the rear and front brakes are disc brakes, while the tires (with cast aluminum wheels) measure 100/80-14 in the front ones and 120/70-14 for the rear ones. It has 31mm diameter hydraulic forks as front suspension, and dual suspension aluminum swingarm as rear suspension.
The engine is a single cylinder 4-stroke (with 4 valves per cylinder), with automatic gearbox, water cooling, PGM-FI electronic injection and with a 26 mm throttle body; the final drive is belt-driven, and there is a V-Matic variable automatic gearbox.
The presence of digital instrumentation, electric start and dual headlights makes this bike even more captivating for the most passionate about technology and technological specifications. Furthermore, the users who have had the opportunity to try it have certainly appreciated the excellent braking sensation and the powerful and aggressive engine.
