Honda’s PCX 125 will use motorcycle hybrid tech

  • Published On: 9 July 2018

The world’s first mass-production motorcycle hybrid system will first be seen on the Honda PCX 125 scooter.

The PCX Hybrid uses a new high-output lithium ion battery and provides drive assist to the ACG starter that conventionally starts the engine and generates electricity. This variant will go on sale in Japan at the end of this year.

With an additional electric motor working with the engine, the PCX Hybrid boasts sharper throttle response and superior performance, while being extremely quiet and vibe-free. There are two motor-assist modes are on offer: ‘D’ mode provides comfortable riding and exceptional fuel economy, and ‘S’ mode provides stronger assist for more rapid performance.

You get features like the Honda Smart Key system, which allows the rider to unlock the main switch knob by simply approaching the PCX Hybrid, without a physical key.
