- The maxi scooter was launched in Thailand last year, and is expected to be launched soon in India.
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. delivered the first lot of its flagship scooter - Forza 300 in India today. Likely to be officially launched soon in India, the Forza 300 will be the country'a first premium mid-size scooter.
The Forza 300 gets silver accents around the nose, front and side cowls. The design lines flow back from a new Electric Screen designed to provide wind protection and reduce wind noise.
Powering the Honda Forza 300 is a 279cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected SOHC four-valve engine which delivers 24.8 bhp @ 7000rpm. An automatic centrifugal clutch works V-Matic Transmission (with ratios set for fast low speed reaction and smart acceleration) with a belt final drive.
Forza 300 is the first Honda scooter to be fitted with HSTC. This helps in regaining rear wheel traction by detecting difference between front and rear wheel speeds, calculating the slip ratio and further controlling engine torque via the fuel injection. HSTC is switchable and a ‘T’ indicator in the digital display flickers when the system is working to manage grip.
The instrument cluster presents analogue speedometer and rev-counter dials along with a digital display that provides information like- odometer (3 modes), range, current mileage, trip meter, average mileage and clock, ambient temperature thermometer and battery sensor.
The Forza 300 comes with a Smart Key. With the key fob pocketed, the rider can easily control the main ignition switch knob, operate the fuel lid and access under seat storage.
The Forza 300 offers decent storage space as well. Two full-face helmets can be stored under the seat, and it’s also possible to partition the storage area to house a helmet, rain gear and A4 sized bags. The front left inner fairing pocket is lockable, and its internal space can be arranged for the rider’s convenience. It also houses a 12V charging socket.
