Honda re­vamps Forza 300

Motorcycle Sport & Leisure - - Top Stories -

Rad­i­cally up­dated, the Forza 300 is now lighter, smaller, smarter and sportier.

The 2018 Forza 300 has a sporty new look and sharper di­men­sions than the pre­vi­ous de­sign. Its wheel­base and length are re­duced to 1510mm, while it’s also nar­rower, but with a higher seat height (780mm) for im­proved vis­i­bil­ity. Even with a new larger di­am­e­ter 14in rear wheel, it’s 12kg lighter thanks to a re­vised chas­sis and re­designed frame, which Honda says boosts its ac­cel­er­a­tion, top speed and fuel ef­fi­ciency.

The new elec­tri­cally ad­justable screen pro­vides op­tions for max­i­mum wind pro­tec­tion or a blast of fresh air. Honda Se­lectable Torque Con­trol (HSTC) has been added and can be switched on and off from the left han­dle­bar.

Re­vised in­stru­ments serve up ex­tra in­for­ma­tion dig­i­tally, in sup­port of the ana­logue di­als.

All light­ing is LED. The Smart Key of­fers con­trol of the op­tional 45 litre top box. Colour op­tions are blue, black, grey and white. Pric­ing and avail­abil­ity TBC.
