Honda has launched the 2019 Honda Forza 300 in Thailand at THB 1.69 lakh (INR 3.92 lakh). The price is the same as that of the MY2018 model. The premium scooter is available in four colour options including a new red-grey shade.
The Honda Forza 300 is suspended over conventional telescopic fork up front and twin springs at the rear. The rear springs are not in the same league as the gas-charged units seen in Honda ADV 150, though. A large LED headlamp resides in the large front apron. An upwards swept rear end adds excitement to the overall attraction.
In terms of features, the Honda Forza 300 gets an electronically adjustable windscreen with technology sourced from Italy. The Thai-spec model's windshield has a travel of 110 mm. In comparison, the UK-spec model boasts 140 mm of adjustability. The sporty premium scooter has disc brakes at both ends. Also, the premium tourer-centric scooter boasts Honda Selectable Traction Control (HSTC). The twin-pod instrumentation is supplemented with a digital display. The latter shows readouts of the distance to empty, maintenance reminders, fuel consumption and displays ambient temperature apart from the standard readouts.
Powering the Honda Forza 300 is a 279 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, SOHC engine. The output figures of the 2019 Honda Forza 300 are expected to be the same as the European edition - 25 PS of power and 27.2 Nm.
The Honda Forza 300 is retailed with Honda Smart Key and Honda Smart Controller. The Intelligent remote commands vehicle positioning, anti-theft alarm and remote on-off with intelligent operation control set Easy to operate, just twist the switch.
The Honda Forza 300 has not been officially confirmed for the Indian market. However, reports suggest that the premium scooter will be launched here later this year. In fact, Honda 2Wheelers India even has the scooter on display at the Delhi Big Wing outlet. If launched, this scooter will be brought to the country via the CBU (Completely Built Unit) route with a premium price tag.
