New Honda Pcx 300Cc Available In Thailand

Recommended Posts

Xonax    473

I just stopped by my Local Honda Dealer in Bangkok (Thepparak Road), who told me that a new Honda PCX 300cc Scooter would hit the market mid January 2013 - probably next week. No detailed information about price and looks, but if it looks like the PCX Forza 250 they sell in Japan, I am certainly interested to buy, if the price is not too high:

This would be a nice scooter and a hard competitor for the SYM GTS300i Evo. With ABS and a Honda sticker on it it would cut a good amount of sales from the SYM maxxiscooters if sold for 200k. Hope we will see more scooters of such size here soon. Hope its not only a rumour smile.png

Hope we can see a pcx or forza higher cc honda maxi scooter in Thailand

A powerful scooter is needed here and definitely there is enough room in the market - otherwise we do not see honda on this segment anyway:lol:

I hope they name it forza though.

Can buy one if priced around 150 - 160 k double of pcx 150. But 200 k is too much.

Lets see and thanks for honda on their nice and respectable investment on bikes in thailand.

The SYM GTS300i Evo already costs 155k Baht. So i doubt Honda will sell their 300cc scooter which has ABS, more power and a Honda sticker on it for the same price. But there is still hope.

I saw 2 similar bikes at the border Arranyaphratet, 2 white ones, looked similar to PCX but more streamlined.

Commuting inter suburbs on highways is suitable for this engine capacity.

Otherwise go with the 150. Slow speed and filtering traffic will cause the engine to overheat.

It isn't only the size of the engine. The whole bike is bigger and stronger than e.g. a PCX. Such maxxiscooter is perfect for allround. Shopping in the city and real tours at the weekend. No problem. One bike fits all. OK, not all, but most, or at least many ;)

The Forza weights 196kg, a PCX 130-140kg iirr. There is a big difference in size and stability.

mmmm definitely I'm very interested in a 300 cc scooter for Honda. I just hope a price around 150/175.000!

Yeah stability, a better rigid chassis and good power to save your ass on tight conditions besides i am sure they will come with bigger tires. These sounds all good.

And maybe SYM got greedy and pumped up their prices as they are the only legal player in maxi scooter segment in Thailand and honda might make it for cheap like in cbr series. 160 k should be perfect!

Pcx 150 is a toy like scooter but enough for many conditions though.

A forza 300 looks like a real machine!

well if this accurate there will be a pcx 150 for sale, and yes of course there will be bigger tyres if not, its cheap enough to buy quality bigger tyres, as i have done for the PCX 150.

The 2013 Forza has a 13" wheel in the back and a 14" wheel in the front according to this website. A trunk for 2 helmets sounds really nice.

What kind of quality bigger tyres did you buy for your PCX 150? I am currently looking for new quality tyres for mine.

Is it just going to be called a "300" but actually use the CBR/CRF 250 engine?

Not that that would be a bad idea...low-ish 20's HP and phenomenal mileage due to the engine being able to always be in its comfort zone...
