Honda Spacy and PCX bikes launched by Boon Siew

Boon Siew Honda recently launched two new motorcycles, the Spacy and PCX. Both are global automatic transmission models already sold in Europe, America and Asia. The Spacy is a basic 110 cc model while the PCX is a bigger and better equipped bike.

The Spacy is powered by a fan-cooled, four-stroke, 110 cc single-cylinder OHC engine powered by Honda’s V-Matic Technology. Boon Siew highlights the bike’s fuel economy, which stands at 41.5 km per litre based on the ECE40 mode test.

The spacy is spacious. An 18-litre XL-sized U-Box can swallow a full-face helmet and the fuel tank is relatively big at 5.2 litres. The floor panel has been made larger, the seat wider, and the front inner box can fit a 500 ml water bottle and other small items.

Other notable features include a brake lock lever function, tubeless tyres and a “Side Stand Switch” feature which auto shuts the engine when the side stand is down.

Available in Magellanic Black, Euphoria Red Metallic and Pearl Metalloid White, the Spacy is priced at RM4,999 OTR with a one-year comprehensive single rider insurance and a warranty period of two years or 20,000 km. Another colour, Luminous Orange, will be available in March 2013.

Meanwhile, the PCX is described as a “luxurious and feature-laden” bike, and it looks the part. For the first time, Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system is made available in an automatic transmission bike. The 153 cc single-cylinder, four stroke, liquid-cooled SOHC engine does 50.2 km per litre, bettering its smaller brother.

Helping fuel efficiency is a new Idling Stop System, which automatically stops the engine when it is idle after three seconds. The system has an ACG starter, which permits smooth starting, eliminating typical noise from the starter gear engagement or meshing. The engine restarts automatically when the throttle grip is twisted.

Combined Brake System (CBS) operates between the front disc, three-piston caliper and rear drum, equalising the braking forces for smoother and more effective braking. Side Stand Switch is also available here.

Other features include 14-inch aluminium wheels with tubeless tyres, dual “grand headlight” with position lamp, console box for personal items, a 25-litre U-Box and a pop-up opening fuel tank.

The PCX is comes in two variants. The RM10,888 Deluxe comes in Pearl Metalloid White while the RM10,688 Standard variant can be had in Pearl Magellanic Black or Radiate Grey Metallic.

A large hi-res gallery of the two bikes is after the jump, including detail shots of all the features.
