Overall Safety (stability, brakes, lights)
Multi-purpose (commuting + city-traffic)
Pretty good looking in black.
Storage space (bag hook+top-box+underseat)
low running costs
Good fun around town and on twisty country roads
engine and transmission noises
Rattles coming from front on bumpy roads
suspension safe but not comfortable
The Honda PS125i is a cool scooter does what it is made for, and a little bit more.
Rode 1250 miles so far.
I got a good deal on the all-black ps125i with free black top box.
I use this scooter mainly for commuting to work, a trip of 30 miles one way. Speed limit on the roads is 45 miles/h, which is not a problem at all for this scooter. Comfortably follows the traffic or leaves it behind at traffic lights. The straight stretches are dull but passing the stationary cars and zipping through traffic is great fun.
Seen the lack of power beyond 50 miles/h, I don't feel this scooter is made for faster roads, especially not highways. I did not expect that anyway.
I also use this scooter for getting around in the city. That is what this scooter is made for and also where most fun can be had. I find myself making up excuses just to use it for this purpose.
Really appreciate the underseat storage space can hold a helmet, big chain and gloves. Great for trips downtown with stopovers. Especially since the scooter looks so much better without the free top-box. However, the top box combined with the bag hook and the underseat storage this makes for some excellent space for running errands.
Very pleased with the stability on the road. No incidents so far. The CBS appears to work very well. Combined with the great lights this scooter can be called safe in its class, not unimportant!
Only 1250 miles. Can't say anything about reliability.
Expect it to be good.
Overall happy with the purchase of this good looking multi-purpose scooter.
