Amidst a profusion of new car and concept launches at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, Honda has decided to premiere a two-wheeler in the form of the Honda Forza 125 high performance scooter.
The full-sized scooter is not merely meant for city commuting but is also a tool to devour highways, says Honda. The overall styling is subtle in no way, in fact it’s just the opposite. The bulky front apron houses a low-mounted LED headlight and a prominent functional windshield. The sharp tailpiece, split grab handles and LED taillights add to the style quotient
The generous stepped seat should make for comfortable long journeys and Honda describes the under-seat storage capacity as ‘massive’.
Its 125 cc liquid-cooled engine breathes via four valves and is mated to a CVT. The fuel-injected motor generates 14.08 bhp and 12 Nm of torque, the bulk of which is concentrated in the mid-range and top-end of the rev band.
In terms of equipment, the Forza 125 comes with front and rear disc brakes with standard ABS, optional heated grips and a rear carrier.
Dimensionally, the big scooter is 2,134 mm in length, 748 mm in width and 1,452 mm in height. It has a kerb weight of 162 kg.
