Fuel enjection Vs carburettor on 125-200cc scooters?
« on: June 08, 2018, 08:14:26 AM »
Hey guys, so we all know the fuel enjection is superior to carburettors, but on a small scooter does it make a big enough difference to justify the increase in cost?

The answer to that question lies with the buyer.

As a scooter manufacturer, no, not if you're trying to get  "the masses" to buy your scooters.

But, take the Honda PCX 125/150, or the Airblade, for example, which have EFI.

Smooth as butter, in every respect. Hop on the PCX150 or one of the new Vespa 150s and you will have the sweetest ride ever.

But you will kak en betaal!
