Honda have given their popular Forza 300 scooter a radical revision for 2018 to make it lighter, smaller, smarter and sportier.
Shedding 12kg in weight at 182kg thanks to a new frame, which uses sharper geometry and a shorter wheelbase for increase agility, Honda have also increased the Forza’s seat height by 62mm to improve visibility, but offset this by making the bike narrower so that shorter riders won’t struggle.TOP STORIES

The 279cc liquid-cooled engine is the same as the one used in the SH300i and makes a claimed 24.8bhp with 20ft.lb of torque. Top speed is a claimed 80mph while Honda also claim improved fuel economy and a tank range of over 200-miles from the 11.5-litre tank.
On the technology side, the Forza now has Selectable Torque Control (traction control), which can be switched on and off via a switch on the bars, and an electric screen, which again is controlled via a switch on the bars and raises and lowers by 140mm. The dash is also new, lighting now LED and the Smart Key automatically locks the optional 45-litre top box when it moves out of range of the bike. Speaking of storage…
Under the seat there is room for two full face helmets and the front fairing has a small, lockable, compartment that also houses a 12V charging socket. Add to this a new, sharper look and larger rear wheel (now 14-inch) and it all adds up to a significant upgrade.
