Entering the Indonesian market is the 2023 Honda Scoopy scooter priced between RM6,591 to RM6,378 in eight colors and four variants. For those asking if the Scoopy will come to Malaysia, in the local market it directly competes with Boon Siew Honda’s BeAT, which is priced at RM5,765.
Other local competition includes the Yamaha Ego Gear at RM5,418 and the WMoto ES125i at RM4,488. Its closest competitors are the Benelli Panarea 125 at RM6,888 and the Benelli VZ125i at RM5,838. Scoopy has been sold in Indonesia since 2010 and is now in its fifth generation.
Power for the Scoopy comes from a 109.5 cc air-cooled single-cylinder mill supplied by Honda’s PGM-Fi. The Scoopy delivers 9 hp at 7,500 rpm and 9.3 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm and the engine is Euro 3 compliant.
As is typical for this type of scooter, a CVT gearbox and belt drive send the power to the rear wheels. Starting on the Scoopy is accomplished with either an electric start or a kick start. The Scoopy has a decidedly retro styling that closely resembles the famous Italian scooter brand, while the four Indonesian models are Sporty, Fashion, Prestige and Stylish.
Suspension is done with telescopic forks on the front wheels, while the rear end uses a single-sided swingarm suspension. Braking uses hydraulic discs on the 12-inch front wheels, while mechanical drum brakes are used on the similarly sized rear wheels.
Large LED projection headlights lend themselves to the retro look, while other riding conveniences include Honda’s Smart Key and under-seat storage, as well as a large storage compartment in the front fairing that includes a USB charger. With 4.2 liters of fuel in the tank and the seat height set at 746mm, the Scoopy weighs 95kg.
