Just a while back we reported on Honda Motorcycle Thailand’s “Under Wraps” event which took place earlier this week. As speculated AP Honda Thailand just pulled the cover off the all-new 2021 Honda PCX 160 in Thailand this morning. Yes, Thailand is now the first market in the ASEAN region to get the updated PCX 160! For 2021, API Honda offers 3 variants of the Honda PCX 160 in Thailand, namely: Honda PCX 160 Non-ABS model, Honda PCX 160 ABS model and Honda PCX 160 e: HEV (Hybrid).
2021 Honda PCX 160 (ABS & Non-ABS)
Starting with the Honda PCX 160, the model gets the same sharp aesthetic update that the Japanese PCX model received in December 2020. The PCX 160 is powered by an all-new water-cooled 156.93cc single-cylinder engine that comes equipped with Honda’s eSP + technology.
Braking is done via disc brakes at the front and rear on the ABS (Single channel) variant. Meanwhile, the non-ABS PCX 160 gets disc brake at the front and drum brake at the rear.
Underneath, the new PCX160 is built around a duplex steel cradle which Honda claims is lighter and more durable. In the case of electronics, the PCX 160 gets; Full LED lighting, Keyless, HSTC (Honda selectable traction control) and an all-new instrument cluster just like the Japanese PCX 160.
On the creature comfort side, the storage capacity has been increased to 30 litres and the PCX now features a USB C socket as well.
