New Honda scooter revs up
Honda has announced that a new scooter will join its UK line-up in May 2006. The new PS125i will join Honda’s existing scooter models and represent the company in one of the largest and fastest growing segments of Europe’s diverse motorcycle market: the 125/150cc scooter class.
This segment includes customers who are new to two-wheels and more experienced riders who prefer the power and comfort of a 100cc-plus four-stroke machine over smaller capacity two-stroke scooters.
The PS125i is powered by a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected single-cylinder engine and has Honda’s HECS3 oxygen-sensing low-emissions system. Like the current Honda Pantheon and SH125i, the new PS125i also features Honda’s innovative small-displacement-type PGM-FI electronic fuel-injection system. This not only offers low emissions and excellent fuel economy, it also means the engine provides strong, low-down power for instant throttle response, all delivered smoothly through Honda’s V-Matic transmission. The PS125i meets strict new Euro-3 regulations and features the lowest emissions in the 125/150cc class.
