2023 Honda Scoopy scoot in Indonesia, Malaysia next? -paultan.org

Entering the Indonesian market is the 2023 Honda Scoopy scooter, priced between RM6,591 and RM6,378 with eight colors and four model variants. For those wondering if Scoopy could make it to Malaysia, in the local market it competes directly against The Boon Siew Honda Rhythm priced at RM5,765.

Other competition in the local market includes the Yamaha Ego Gear at RM5,418 as well as the motorcycle ES125i at RM4,488, his closest rival being Benelli Panarea 125, retailing at RM6888, and the Benelli VZ125i at RM5838. The Scoopy has been sold in Indonesia since 2010 and is now in its fifth generation.

Power for the Scoopy comes from an air-cooled 109.5cc single-cylinder mill powered by Honda’s PGM-Fi. The Scoopy develops 9 PS at 7,500 rpm, with 9.3 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm, and the engine is Euro 3 compliant.

As is typical of scooters in this class, a CVT gearbox and belt drive send power to the rear wheel. The Scoopy starts with electric or kick start. The Scoopy’s style is clearly retro, very similar to the famous Italian scooter brand and for Indonesia, the four variants of the model are Sporty, Fashion, Prestige and Stylish.

Suspension is by telescopic forks, not the front wheel, while the rear has single-sided swinging suspension. Braking uses a hydraulic disc on the 12-inch front wheel, while the similarly sized rear wheel has a mechanical drum brake.

A large LED projector headlight is fitted for that retro look, while other driving conveniences include the Honda Smart Key with underwater storage, as well as a large front hood storage compartment that includes a USB charger. 4.2 liters of fuel are carried in the tank, while the seat height is set at 746mm, with the Scoopy tipping the scales at 95kg.
