Not scientific at all. Notice the different traffic and riding conditions. Mine is proven on fuelly.com. I have lighter rollers installed etc. Going to get my Fuelly ticker for the PCX on my signature. I ride down to 0C/32F. Sometimes below when dry.

Agreed, I'm surprised you went for lighter rollers but then again all this variator tuning thing is new to me.
I acquired a Helix scooter a while ago, I was told that it had a 'Malossi kit' installed, performance is more than adequate for my needs but because I'm curious I'm going to experiment with different roller weights to see what difference it makes to performance and economy.

I noticed no ill effect on MPG but quicker acceleration. I gave it a try and I am very happy. Still on OEM tires and the are definitely built for MPG.

I didn't know there was any Malossi product meant to be fitted to a 4-stroke scooter, I only knew its performance parts for 2-stroke engines.

HUGE aftermarket for the PCX. All the big brands, Malossi, YSS, Yuminoshi big bore kits, NCY, every brand of exhaust imaginable etc etc etc. The PCX outsells Vespa 3-1 in Italy. And there is a MASSIVE aftermarket for it in Asia. Highway legal in all 50 states, but interstate are a bit scary when people blast past in such a light bike.

In many scooter-oriented markets, or any country where motorcycles are seen as a regular all-year commuter, Honda outsells any European contender. Brazil is not as scooter-hungry as it used to be from the '50s to mid-'70s when Honda took over with the CG 125, but nowadays I spend months without seeing any Vespa from the '90s or newer, yet I see at least one modern Honda scooter a day.

Southeast Asia in general tends to be much more favorable to scooters than anywhere else.
