The Honda PCX 125 was the bestselling bike in the UK in September.

The Japanese manufacturer’s scooter was the first to come with an idle stop-start ignition system and it’s proved popular with riders in the UK.

Last month, the PCX shifted 288 units seeing it sit comfortably atop the bestsellers chart, ahead of another Honda 125, the CBF 125 M.

Surprisingly it’s not another Honda model in third place. Instead it’s German manufacturer BMW completing the podium with two models tied on 186 new registrations in September, the R1200 GS Adventure and the BMW R 1200 RT.

Despite strong sales however, BMW still sits behind Honda and Yamaha in the manufacturer charts with 1,012 sales in September, 37 units ahead of Triumph.

Once again, Japanese manufacturers dominate the standings with five featured, including Ducati, Suzuki and Kawasaki on top of Honda and Yamaha.

And there’s a familiar feel to the best selling engine size too, with the 125s again the most popular, accounting for 4,622 of the 12,623 new registrations in September.

So far this year, there have been more than 83,000 new registrations in the UK. That figure is up by 10.2 per cent on the same period in 2013.
