People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

Ek weet nie veel van ou goed af nie, maar enige ou fiets in oorspronklike toestand is meer werd as 'n gerestoureerde ene. Behalwe natuurlik as hy toetentaal "fubar" is.

Jy sal 'n complete nuts en bolts restourasie moet doen om jou geld terug te kry.  :deal:

I bought this about a month ago  -  Honda PCX150. What a fantastic scooter. It punches way above it's weight category!

Pro's
======
- 150cc Liquid cooled
- Fuel injected
- Start/Stop technology that actually works a treat.
- 14" wheels so it's pretty stable.
- Lots of space under the seat.
- 6l fuel tank so range is 200km+  (I understand the newer model has a 7.5l tank but this scooter isn't available in SA anymore)
- Fuel consumption (driving it in a lively manner)   36km/l
- Conventional handlebars so you have some flexibility in terms of changing ergos
- It can comfortably cruise at between 100 and 110km/h. It starts jerking and buggering around at about 118km/h....probably the rev limiter. I find myself on the highway quite often with it because it manages just fine.

Complaints:
===========
- God awful hump on the seat is fucking uncomfortable and forces you to sit in a cramped position.
- No clock on the dash
- It's looks are an acquired taste....can't say I love the way it looks.


This is the best scooter I've owned. It's a quality scooter, no question about it.

Ironically I hit a pedestrian (with earphones and watching her phone) crossing the road last week on my way home.

I guess I was lucky as I landed on my feet after hitting a car, and the scooter crashed pretty well although it will cost around R17k to repair.

Hopefully it is ready by the time the school holiday ends.

Glad you are ok (sort of).

Sorry about the scooter. Such a pity.  :'(
