Honda Forza 300 is one of the many scooters that the Japanese giant manufactures. It is also quite popular. Honda has silently given it an update.
What’s the update you ask? Well, the major new feature is the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC). It’s basically a traction control system. It is the first time that Honda has used this in its scooter. The HSTC detects any difference between the front and rear wheel speeds, calculates the slip ratio and then controls engine torque via the fuel injection to regain rear wheel traction. It can be switched on and off with a switch which is located on the left handlebar. Pretty cool, eh?
The new Forza 300 is now much lighter – it has shredded off 12 kg, thanks to the brand-new chassis. The wheelbase has been shortened by 35mm. The rake is now 26.5 degrees with a trail of 89mm. Honda has raised the seat height by 62mm and reduced the width of the handlebar by 2mm to make the scooter compact and provide an easy riding stance. In short, every new change that has been implemented here is to make the Forza 300 a good overall performer.
Another new addition is the electrically adjustable windscreen. Just like the HSTC, it is also controlled by a switch located on the left handlebar. It has got an adjustable range of 140mm, which should be more than enough to provide a good amount of wind-protection to the rider during those long high-speed highway runs.
