According to a recent report, the Japanese multinational conglomerate Honda is expected to launch the Forza 300 premium scooter in India by the end of this year. The scooter will be exclusively retailed by Honda’s BigWing stores across the country. The brand will reportedly bring the Forza to India through the CBU route.
Honda Forza 300 will enter the Indian market in competition with the 22Kymco 300i as both possess a lot of similarities being a premium maxi-scooter. Forza’s competitor Kymco is available at a price tag of INR 2.30 lakh, while the former is expected to launch with a price tag of around INR 7-8 lakhs, hence making it comparatively much expensive and also beating down a lot of 650cc sportbikes in terms of price.
The primary reason for Forza’s high price tag is the addition of taxes and import duties as the scooter will be made available to the Indian buyers through CBU (Completely Built Unit) route in which the entire assembled model is imported from the origin country to the country where it will be sold.
The secondary reason is the features being offered on the Forza 300, like the all-LED light setup along with the car-like premium semi-digital instrument cluster. The scooter features adjustable windscreen with huge under-seat storage that can hold up to 2 full-faced helmets and it also has a 12-volt socket to charge a smartphone or any other compatible electronic device. Honda Forza 300 is quite a touring focused premium scooter.
You can totally rely on it for a smooth ride as its suspension duties are managed by 33mm telescopic front forks and twin rear shock absorbers with a 7-stage spring preload-adjustment. The brakes get its power from a 256mm disc brake at the front and a 240mm at the rear end.
It ensures the rider’s safety by having 2-channel ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and HSTC (Honda Selectable Torque Control), making Forza 300 a one-of-a-kind scooter when it comes to the roads with unfavourable conditions.
Honda Forza 300 is powered by a 279cc fuel-injected single-cylinder engine, which generates a maximum power of 24.8 HP at 7,000 rpm and a peak torque of 27.2 Nm at 5,750 rpm. The company claimed mileage of Forza is 31 kmpl, while you can expect it to deliver around 25 kmpl in real-world conditions. The scooter is equipped with a 120/70-R15 front tyre and a 140/70-R14 rear tyre.
If interested buyers wish to know more about the premier Japanese scooter then they can visit or contact the Honda BigWing outlet situated at Gurugram as they have confirmed the launch of a premium maxi-scooter to happen by the end of the year.
