With the new update, the biggest change introduced on the new scooter includes a bigger capacity engine. The displacement has gone up from 279 cc to now 329.6 cc.

Some of the key electronics features on the scooter includes traction control, electrically adjustable windscreen, and it also gets dual-channel ABS. Moreover, it also benefits from bits like keyless operation, USB charging and semi-digital instrumentation. All of this also makes it the most tech-ladden scooter to have been ever introduced in the Indian market.

For the record, Honda India has already brought in a few units of the Forza 300 to gauge the customer response. What's to be noted is that only a handful of units were imported to India and were sold at an undisclosed price.
