The sound is when you go over speed bumps? hmm.gif
Probably your front tyre is touching your mudguard.

If I were you, I will change the front fork oil with thicker oil.

When your mechanic change the original fork oil, take a look at it. puke.gif

Bought for my sis, and ride for almost 3 hours.. Stop just to refuel. Smooth engine.. Very nice handling.. Except that I'm not used with scooter. My leg is looking for brake.. Lol. And I'm slightly taller than average.. So not so comfy for my legs. But still manageable. Maybe I'm not used to this type of ride

Problem with scooters is no resale.value. JI onlh buy scooters used jn malaysia. Less than half the price of a new one. I heard the vario is the most reliable one, unlike the nmax.

Already use Honda PCX 2018 version for more than a year and has clocked more than 14,000 km. It uses same engine and gearbox as the Vario.

Yes it is reliable, no problem except slight vibration when it is cold. After warmed up - no complaint. Max speed is 113 km/h, mod will cost a lot and to me not worth it.

Maintenance is cheap, first at 1,000 km and thereafter at 6,000 km and every 6,000 km after that. At 12,000 km, the spark plug was changed, costed about RM25.

At normal service, only engine oil was changed. I use Honda Jaso MB oil, costs about RM20 including labour. Thus far, I spent a total less than RM200 for maintenance.

If you ride at 90 km/h max, fuel reading is at 49 km/litre while if you speed constantly at 110 km/h, fuel consumption dropped below 40 km/litre.

Get a slightly used Honda PCX if you asked me because the resale value is real bad one, and the next owner gains a lot. More comfortable ride, more storage space, same engine as vario.

For me, the difference is huge. The PCX is a Honda iconic scooter sold in almost in every known market. You can find it in Japan, Saudi Arabia, England, Italy, etc. It's a scooter for the world market... meaning we're getting a more quality product.

I'm using it in town and some grab/foodpanda riders are also using them.

Spark plug for RM 25? Why so expensive? I buy NGK B8ES and DIY install for RM6.50.

but for 60km a day you will probably be better served by PCX. the underseat storage is double that of vario and depending on the year, you get bigger fuel tank

Thanks for suggestion but my area doesnt sell pcx anymore, hence paid deposits for vario. Will give a short review when I get my hands on. Was told vario price gonna increase next year is it true?

Luckily tested on the leg room before commit. Legroom just nice as im a short person
