Boon Siew Honda has released the face-lifted and improved Spacy scooter for 2016. In this hotly contested market segment, price and features are the major selling points, and the 2016 Spacey get some improvements to accommodate rider needs.

The Spacy remains unchanged mechanically from the out-going model, using the same 110 cc four-stroke single. A small fan takes care of cooling duties, and fuel consumption is 41.5 km/litre. The CVT gearbox is also unchanged, with a belt final-drive. The fuel tank has a 5.2 litre capacity, giving a range of approximately 210 km.

Major changes for 2016 are the revised graphics. The stripes from last year are gone, leaving plain, under-stated bodywork with chrome accents. One feature that has carried over is the spacious 18-litre under-seat storage, which takes a full-sized helmet comfortably. Other features include a bag hook and a front glove box.

Safety features are highlighted in the Spacy, include a side-stand cut-off, and a magnetic locking system adds an extra level of security. A brake lever lock helps prevent unintended acceleration from a standstill, something scooters are prone to, especially with careless riders.

Other changes include a halogen headlight from the previous incandescent type, and the rear turn signals are now separated from the brake light, giving a measure of visibility to other motorists. The 2016 Honda Spacy retails for RM4,999, and comes with a two year or 20,000 km warranty. Three colours are available – Pearl Metalloid White,Pearl Magellanic Black and Euphoria Red Metallic, and the 2016 Spacy will be on sale from this month.
