I bought the Honda PS 125i a few weeks ago, after more then 6 years on a Honda Silverwing 600.. I can't erase the smile from my face! The sitting ON the bike and not IN the bike is very useful in urban environment, the weight is almost half of the Silverwing, and the filling in tough traffic is like a butterfly! It's light, fast, comfortable, and looks great! For that price I would accept a rear disc brake, and a side jack. (read more)

At 1.89 meters and 14.5 stones you'd figure one would go for the Yamaha XMAX, Piaggio EVO7 or a Honda SilverWing. Yet, I went for the Honda PS 125. It's not a maxiscooter like the above forementioned- but its 130 kilograms dry - so the weight is substantial- it can knife through traffic magnificently- has nice power at the starts- and has a nice high and comfortable 800 mm seat. Riding in Jerusalem is not for the feint at heart- its basically a zoo on the roads- and this baby can... (read more)

Honda ps 125 review:
It is a great scooter for nipping around the city. Have had it for 6 months now and have been really happy with the handling, brakes, reliability and for a four stroke 125, the performance. The top box is handy for waterproofs and a cover and my size 62 (massive) full face shoei helmet fits nicely under the seat. I do miss my old Ducati but for what I need it for this makes loads more sense.
Took it 20 miles up the motorway last week for its first service... (read more)

If the PS125i is your first scooter you may be surprised by the size; weight; acceleration and top speed.
- Starts first time, every time;
- Can fit a full face lid under the seat (depending on the design);
- Flat floor is handy for shopping;
- Has a good road presence;
- Easy to filter through slow/stationary traffic;
- Fast away from traffic lights.
- 800mm seat height might mean some riders can't put a foot flat on the ground.

I'm back into biking aged 45 after an 11 year gap. Forced into it really due to the price of fuel - car does 33mpg, bike does almost 80mpg, and it fairly irritates to pay so much to Mr Brown for a daily journey that is no fun at all. So for commuting (12 miles, mostly in town or country lanes), it's great. Much more fun than any car, get to work with a smile on your face.

I was going to get a Dylan, but when I realised it was being phased out I went for the Honda PS, even though I prefer the styling of the Dylan.
It feels like a really well-sorted bike. It's much better bolted together than the Yamaha that it replaced. Performance is excellent, with quite a torquey 4-stroke that's fine for anything up to dual-carriageways. Injection makes a huge difference if you're used to a smoky juddering 2-stroke first thing in the morning.

On the motorway it is relaxed at 50, O.K. at 55 and just too near the limit for me to be happy at 60.
