The Best 125cc Scooters:

★ 125cc Scooter of the Year ★

Honda PCX125

Honda PCX125 For Sale

It doesn't need an introduction. The PCX125 has topped the monthly sales charts for what seems like forever and defines small budget maxi scooters much like the Yamaha TMAX defines large and expensive maxi scooters.

Honda have been continually refining the concept since 2010 and there is a brand new version for 2018 with a new frame, new LED lighting, up to date dash and new wheels.

The idling stop/start system is still there to boost fuel economy and it can be turned off from the handlebars to suit your situation. Read the review.

Yamaha X-MAX 125 For Sale

Re-designed for 2018, the X-MAX 125 is arguably one of the best premium 125 maxi scooters you can buy right now.

For a 125 it's rammed with modern tech such as keyless ignition, traction control and the highlight of the bunch is the LED headlight set up.

Both sides light up for low beam, avoiding that wonky look many bikes are rocking, with the high beam emanating from another LED light in the centre of the cluster. Read the review.
