Updated 2018 Honda Forza 300 introduced


The new 2018 Honda Forza 300 has been introduced for the European market.

Updated with a much lighter chassis and sportier design, the new Forza 300 promises greater performance in every aspect.

Other features include traction control, full LED lights, Smart Key system, twin-channel ABS and many more.

The 2018 Honda Forza 300 scooter has just been unveiled and the updated version is more than just a model with new colours. For 2018, the Forza 300 is a much more radical machine which is lighter, more compact, sporty and fitted with some impressive electronics to match.

The folks from Honda have designed a brand new frame for the 2018 Forza 300 which is now lighter than ever before. The new chassis is a whopping 12kg lighter which totals up to 182kg in total.

Paired with a shorter wheelbase and improved riding geometry, the new Honda scooter promises greater levels of agility. Compared to the Honda NSS300, the new Forza 300 is 10kg lighter.

The new design is also narrower than its predecessor which won’t be a nuisance to vertically-challenged riders, especially with the new 63mm seat height increase. This will help in increasing visibility while on the road and manoeuvrability when navigating through congested traffic jams.

Underneath it all is a 279cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine which offers around 25hp at 7,000rpm and 27.2Nm of maximum torque upon hitting 5,750rpm. In terms of performance, the 2018 Honda Forza 300 is about the same as the 2017 Honda NSS300 which is available here in Malaysia at RM30,727.28 (basic price with GST).

Honda claims that the Forza 300 can hit just under 130km/h top speed. Combined with its 11.5-litre fuel tank (0.1 litres less than the Honda NSS300), the new sporty scooter is able to cover a distance of over 320km easily.


Other impressive updates include Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), all-around LED lights, Smart Key system, massive under-seat storage that can fit two full-face helmets, 12V charging socket, twin-channel ABS and an adjustable electric screen just to name a few.

No news on the pricing just yet but it is available in four different colour options; Crescent Blue Metallic, Pearl Nightstar Black, Matt Cynos Grey Metallic, and Matt Pearl Cool White.
