You know, scooters are a kick in the pants to ride. They just are - no matter what you might think of them. And I was again reminded of this after spending the day cruising the SoCal beaches and city streets of Orange County aboard one of Honda's latest around-towners, the PCX150.

The PC150X replaces the previous PCX125 and the increase in displacement is significant - not only does it mean there is a bit more power on tap, but more importantly it expands the PCX's capabilities since it's big enough to be freeway-legal.
