Honda Philippines’ (HPI) scooter lineup continues to grow—literally. After the arrival of the PCX 160 last year, it’s now the Click’s turn to get a new and bigger engine.
The Click 160—after surfacing in our region earlier this year—has officially made it to the Philippine market. It now replaces the Click 150i in HPI’s lineup. It has big shoes to fill, as that model had already established itself as one of the country’s best-selling scooters over the years.
Will the all-new Click 160 live up to expectations? Well, we’re here to give you the lowdown on Honda’s newest offering. You tell us how you think this will fare among Filipino riders as well as how it will stack up against the competition.

The Honda Click 160 only comes in one variant priced at P116,900. This lone option can be had in three colorways: Matte Pearl Crater White, Matte Gunpowder Black Metallic, and Matte Solar Red Metallic.
Design and dimensions
The new Click 160 stands 1,929mm long, 678mm wide, and 1,062mm tall. It has 138mm of ground clearance and a 778mm seat height. For comparison, the Click 160 is still slightly smaller but has a higher ride height than the PCX 160. The Click’s curb weight is listed at 116kg.
The Click 160 also sits on new-look 14-inch wheels. The front is shod in 100/80-14MC 48P tires, while the rear gets 120/70-14MC 61P rubber. It comes with a 5.5-liter fuel tank.
This new scooter boasts sportier styling than its predecessor. The V-shaped headlight on the front fairing has been taken out, but it still has a very familiar Click-like silhouette. There are now more lines, and the scooter looks more sculpted and muscular overall. The finish is also a lot cleaner, as Honda has done away with all the unnecessary badges and decals.
Engine and specs
The powertrain, of course, is arguably the biggest highlight here. The scooter is powered by a 157cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, fuel-injected gasoline engine that generates 15hp at 8,500rpm and 13.8Nm of torque at 7,000rpm. Honda says this unit can still achieve up to 46.7km/L.
The Click’s stopping power is handled by a single disc brake up front and a leading/trailing drum brake out back. Still no anti-lock braking system on this scooter, though.
The Click gets its fair share of amenities, the new USB charger inside the glove compartment being one of the most notable ones. There’s also a new digital panel that displays the speedometer and provides trip info, and the scooter gets full LED lighting. It now also comes with a new key fob and is equipped with Honda’s Smart Key System with answer-back and anti-theft alarm features.
