The local Honda shop just got their first PCX this week; this one is pearlescent white. I gave it a thorough look-over, sat on it, bounced on the suspension... looks like a well-built machine, albeit a bit plasticky. The large chrome headset cover appears to be plastic, and the bike looks much smaller in person than in the photos. As for comfort, it's VERY confortable; definitely a long-trip candidate. Due to the salesman working w/ another customer, I did not get to start or drive it. The in-dash storage compartment is fully gasketed, but is probably only large enough for a cell phone or driving gloves; the under-seat storage and fuel door can be opened from the rocker switch by the ignition lock. The PCX has both center stand and a side stand.
