Shopping for new scooter

Post by newtovillagelife » May 4, 2021, 10:52 am

Hi all, anyone know why the list price and dealership price differs for scooters. Shopping for a new Honda PCX 160.

Technically speaking they should be / are the same, MSRP, unless it's an in demand item and the dealership bumps up the price because of the high demand. Are you talking about dealer invoice price?

It also might be because the list price, wherever you're getting it from, does not include the destination charge.

After doing some research I see the list price is 91,900 baht. Nice little markup.

I was recently looking on line and found this for the PCX 160, with prices for each Model

the Thai are for riding a motorbike appear to be 15 Years old and the Thai minimum age for driving a car appears to be 18 years old.

Is 15 Years the correct minimum age, even if it is 160 cc or is it limited to under....cc if you are 15 or 16 years old

67,500 THB and 78,500 THB for the ABS model so a considerable difference !

I actually wanted the Monster one because I like the stickers 🤭
It’s brand new but a 2019 model without ABS & I paid a lot less than this
