What happend to the utility part...

...of what makes a scooter so great?
I see no flat area between the leg area for placing something like a small satchel.
I don't see what looks to be any area under the seat for storage (like a helmet etc) unless the vehicles "sleekness" is hiding it. (?)
I also don't see a good area for mounting a tail rack unless Honda has one available and the mounts are VERY hidden or it comlpelely replaces the sleek rear grab handle.

All I see is another Honda taking two wheeled transportation in the direction of Style without function like they have been for years.
I HATE having to wear a backpack to carry shit on two wheels.
Thankfully my DR650 and 125 Zuma are useful. (no brand loyalty here either, I just like useful vehicles)
All I see when I look at Hondas anymore is RED, in a bad way!

If Honda would bring the cub (or import the postie bike "trail 90") here, id buy it in a heartbeat.

Rant off...

Cub(preferred) or Wave with 125cc would be perfect in the city. I'd buy one.

Aw, quit your griping, Mr. Lazy! If you had bothered to review the previously posted vids and pages, you would have noticed glove box and under seat storage, with the space under the seat holding a full face helmet and more. Plus, I'm sure there will be Honda and aftermarket options for a top rack and case. Automatic, fuel injection, catalytic converter, auto stop - this is a great step forward. Packages between the feet - not safe.

You got me, so I'll take back 1/2 of what I said.
That seat area sure didn't visually appear like it would hold a full size helmet. Looks can be deceiving.
...and when I'm doing anything pertaining to scooters; I'm in lazy mode = no shifting, throw the crap on the rack or under the seat and go. This also pertains to reading about them. Sorry!

Unfortunately, we won't be getting this neat little feature...

It's listed!

The PCX is now on the US Honda web site as a 2011 model, price yet to be released!

I don't think you're using that term correctly. Dearth means "a lack of".

Well, I certainly hope that this new Honda PCX is a smart design.

I sat on an SH 150 and it felt totally awkward but, then again, so do most scooters since I'm 6'5".

However, my Yamaha Vino 125 fits just fine. I have to stick out my knee a bit when I'm turning the steering wheel but I couldn't care less. If people think I look goofy, that's their problem. However, I don't think I look awkward riding the Yamaha Vino 125 anyway.

New Honda

I saw the scoot for the first time today. I was surprised they came out with a 125 instead of a 250 or more. I own a 2010 Elite 110 and I love it, great storage and 100 mpg. I have been looking for a good used Reflex to add to the stable but now I am wondering what else Honda is going to spring on us. I would buy a 400 Swing in a heartbeat. I will be checking out the 125 as my wife has all ready put in a request.

Perhaps a 125 for the better mpg while still providing a large range of use, but I don't understand why we don't get the idle stop system in the US.
