        The premium scooter segment heats up even further with the official arrival of its newest contender, the 2021 Honda PCX160. First announced last December, this successor to the popular PCX150 has finally made its way to our shores.

        Honda Philippines first confirmed that this scooter would be coming to the Philippine market earlier this year. Since then, we were able to take it out for a quick spin on the Honda Safety Driving Center test course.

        Propelling the PCX160 is a 157cc SOHC single-cylinder engine equipped with Honda’s Enhanced Smart Power+ tech. This little mill is capable of 15.6hp at 8,500rpm and 15Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. Compared to the PCX150’s 149cc engine, the PCX160 boasts an increase of 1hp and 1.8Nm of torque. Claimed fuel consumption is at 45.1km/L, which is quite good for a powertrain this capable.

        In addition to a new engine, this scooter also sports new LED lighting, hazard lights, and wider tubeless tires. Also new is an Idling Stop System that shuts the engine off when the scooter is stopped to conserve fuel. Other new tech bits include a USB power socket in the front storage cubby and a smart key with answer back functionality. Like the outgoing model, the PCX160 offers a good amount of cargo space with a 30-liter underseat storage box large enough to fit a full-face helmet and a raincoat.

        The 2021 PCX160 comes in two flavors: ABS(Anti-lock Brake System) and CBS (Combi Brake System).

        As the name implies, the ABS variant comes with front and rear anti-lock brakes for added safety during sudden stops. Honda Selectable Torque Control also comes standard on the ABS trim, and essentially acts as switchable traction control. The CBS variant features combined braking, which means the front and rear discs will work together to stop the bike more effectively.

        The CBS variant is available in Matte Dim Gray Metallic and Pearl Fadeless, while the ABS comes in either Asteroid Black Metallic or Pearl Fadeless White. The prices are as follows:
