Best Automatic Moto

Postby Jacobincambodia » Wed Apr 05, 2017 12:23 pm

Would love to hear your favorite automatic scooter and why.

I'm looking at the Airblade and PCX. And what is the difference between the Airblade and Click?

I personally don't like automatics because their lack of control/response compared with semi auto bikes. However if you are a relatively inexperienced or slow rider and intend it for round town trips, they may be ok. Also autos tend to keep your feet and lower legs drier than underbone style bikes.

Anyway here's a review from Thailand that might be of interest: Krabi Thailand Yamaha Nouvo, Honda click and Air Blade tests

Airblades are top dog

the difference between them and the click is the click is smaller and has a footwell where as the airblade the petrol tank is in between your legs and your feet are on the side

Depends on where you'll be riding it. Most people say the Air Blade is better for cities because it's smaller than the PCX and easier to park. If parking is not a issue the PCX is a more luxurious ride

I went to the Honda dealership yesterday and they said the Airblade is made in Thailand (under the Honda name) and the Click comes from Japan. I assume quality wise they are both Hondas right? I definitely like the Airblade size and it still has enough "get-up." I do want something that will last. Is the auto transmission known for any issues compared to the half-manual trans of the Dream?

Agreed, I run a Yamaha Jupiter at present, bought new about 4 years ago, I am very happy with it, it is a very responsive bike to ride. Yamaha race these bikes and there are a lot of add on race parts available.

However the upgrade to the Jupiter is the Exciter, looks like my old bike but this is 150cc with front and rear discs. If I can get hold of one here I might buy.

Yamaha has officially launched a new motor that is claimed to be the successor yamaha jupiter mx later. The first country to have the honor to launch this bike for the first time is vietnam.
New Engine Capacity 150cc Fuel Injection - Yamaha Exciter 150 is getting an injection of new engine that are larger than the previous version (135 cc) which is 150 cc, 4 Step, 4 stroke, SOHC, 5 speed with a liquid cooling system. The machine is capable of removing up to a maximum power of 11.3 kW (15.4 PS) / 8500 rpm and torque of 13.8 Nm makimal up (1.4 kgf.m) / 7000 rpm. Yamaha exciter can exceed the speed of new vixion by scoring the speed at 136 km / h. Where to new vixion Indonesia only able to cover a top speed of around 132 km / hour. http://specifications-price123.blogspot ... amaha.html
