2016 Honda Forza ABS Review

2016 Honda Forza ABS on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Functioned for Life, Fashioned for Looks…

The premier sit-in scooter.

The all-new Forza 300 is an easy to ride daily commuter that’s just as much fun going to work, as it is for a long weekend trip. Plenty of room for two with a sporty and involving ride, the dynamic Forza 300 has evolved over time into the complete premium long-range sit-in scooter.


New horizons

Imagine having just as much fun going to work as you do going away for the weekend.

The Forza 300 is a sleekly styled, easy-to-ride scooter that gives you the benefit of a liquid-cooled engine with plenty of power and torque – as well as more efficient fuel consumption. So whether you’re taking on rush-hour traffic or hitting the open road, the Forza 300 will always give you that feel-good factor.

 

Designed to let you do more.

Superb aerodynamics offer year round protection.

A revised front cowl offers improved aerodynamics, good weather protection and makes filtering through traffic and slotting into bike parking bays easy. The comfortable seat and relaxed riding position make it the perfect weekend getaway bike.


Stylish practicality

Dual fairing pockets store items where they’re easy to get to; on the left side a large capacity box can be opened, closed and locked via a switch located beside the main key. It also features a 12V power socket and a maintenance panel allows easy access to plug in optional accessories.

Bicycles, skateboards, taxis, the bus. We all have someplace to go, and we all need a way to get there. And until you can order up your own private self-flying hovercraft, the most fun, most practical, most economical way to get around is on a Honda Forza.™

Forget what you think you know about scooters—the Forza is going to expand your perception. First, the nuts-and-bolts side of things: with its single-cylinder four-stroke Honda engine, the Forza has the power to carry you and a passenger on the highway with ease. Plus, because it’s a Honda, you know it’s going to run and run with minimum maintenance. Next, there’s the Forza’s super-handy integral storage compartment under the seat—it’s big enough for two helmets. And for all your electronic accessories, there’s even a power outlet so you can charge up and stay connected on the go.

But then there’s the Forza’s fun side too. It’s about a billion time better than any bus ride, and it’s the perfect choice for commuting around-town, errand running, or just getting out and having fun. And did we mention its awesome fuel economy?


Honda Power

With its liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine, the Honda Forza offers lots of user-friendly power—it’s even powerful enough to be legal for highway use.


No Shifting—Ever!

The Forza features a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). That means there’s no shifting, not even into neutral or park—just start it up and go. It also means you won’t feel any bumps between changing gears—it’s as smooth as can be.


Underseat Storage

It doesn’t get any easier than this: Just pop a latch and the Forza’s seat tips up, revealing a huge storage compartment big enough for two full-face helmets or a bunch of groceries. It’s secure and weather-resistant, too.

It’s the Details that Set the Forza Apart

Some manufacturers don’t take their scooter lineup very seriously. But not Honda—and our new Forza is a perfect example. It’s full of technical innovation and attention to detail that not only make the Forza reliable, practical, and a great value, they also make it more fun to ride!

Options & Pricing

The Honda Forza is one of the most practical scooters anywhere. Its 300-class engine has plenty of power—even two-up—and gets great mileage. Underseat storage makes errands a breeze. And the sleek bodywork means you’ll arrive in style.

2016 Honda Forza ABS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Engine & Drivetrain

Reduced emissions

There’s a dual-core exhaust catalyzer to keep emissions in check so you can feel good about riding the Forza.

 

Save on fuel costs

Electronic fuel injection, advanced combustion control and a number of low-friction engine technologies ensure maximum efficiency paying dividends in reduced fuel costs.

 

Durable cruising capacity

Liquid cooling and a low stress engine design means you have all day highway cruising capability without worrying about “hurting” the engine, whether you’re travelling two-up or solo.

 

Enjoyable highway experience

The V-matic automatic transmission has been specifically tuned to target perhaps the two most important operating zones – immediate, strong response off the line and laid-back feel on the highway. Entertaining when you want it to be, relaxing when you don’t.

 

Plenty of power

The smooth running 279 cc engine is designed to deliver strong midrange performance and is perfectly matched to the fully automatic transmission for effortless operation across a broad range.

 


Chassis & Suspension

Low seat, high confidence

The Forza’s low-slung frame design contributes to an exceptionally low seat height that greatly enhances the feeling of security when manoeuvring fully loaded in parking lot situations.

 

Combined ABS brakes

Powerful front and rear disc brakes provide right now stopping power while control is retained thanks to Honda’s advanced Combined Braking System with ABS. With the Combined Braking System the rear brake lever also operates the front brake (the front brake lever operates only the front brake) enhancing peace of mind in fast-stop situations while ABS adds an extra measure of security in low traction conditions.

 

Excellent traction

In keeping with its sport-touring mandate the Forza’s oversized, cast-aluminum wheels are fitted with high-traction tires that offer excellent wear characteristics.

 

Improved ride comfort

A stiff, double-sided, aluminum swingarm adds to the Forza’s handling prowess, working in harmony with beefy 35 mm telescopic forks. The well-matched suspension components also offer excellent compliance improving ride comfort.

 

Feel of a motorcycle

Belying the sit-in scooter riding position the Forza offers “motorcycle feel” thanks in part to the stout tubular-steel frame that provides composed, sure-footed handling.

 


Additional Features

Excellent protection, nimble design

The Forza’s sleek, contemporary bodywork offers excellent protection against the elements without the bulk found in some scooter offerings. In fact the Forza’s narrow profile makes it a natural for squeezing through those narrow city spaces.

 

Comfortable accommodation

The ergonomically-shaped shaped seat offers generous, comfortable accommodation for both rider and passenger and passenger security is further aided by a cast aluminum grab rail built in to the rear of the bodywork.

 

Spacious underseat storage

A vast under-seat storage area swallows two full face helmets with room to spare and a Genuine-Honda accessory top box can add even more capacity should you ever need it.

 

Security and information at your fingertips

Convenience features abound in the cockpit from dual easy to reach fairing pockets, to a 12V power outlet, to a comprehensive dash display including speedometer, clock, dual trip-meters plus fuel and temperature gauges and oil level warning light. There’s even an integrated security system that makes it just about impossible to start the Forza without one of the original keys.

 

Excellent night visibility

Powerful, twin, multi-reflector headlights that cut a wide swath through the darkness complete the impressive list of touring credentials.
