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 litres to 8 litres 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 consumption 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 litre 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.
