RATINGS

Looks

7.0 European in flavour. Larger diameter wheels enhance handling and ride.

Performance

7.0 With a 28cc increase in engine size, the 2015 version of the PCX 150 will get up to highway speed. Just.

Technology

8.0 The four-stroke engine with liquid cooling is almost completely silent. It’s amazingly thrifty.

7.025 litres of storage room under the (locking) seat – enough to hold a helmet.

The Verdict

As an economical city runabout, it’s almost perfect.
