The Forza 125 is designed for those European customers who demand more from a 125cc scooter: more performance, more agility and more usability. They are motivated by style, quality and performance; they expect a lot out of life and aim to extract the most from every experience.
The machine they ride has to offer the very maximum a 125cc scooter can give, and look good while it does it. And it has to combine the best of two worlds: the highway ability and comfort of larger capacity ‘GT’ style (Grand Touring) scooters and the traffic-beating, sporty acceleration and easy-to-park utility of smaller, lighter machines.
The Forza 125’s slim exterior exudes an aggressive, sporting attitude and a dynamic, modern design and layout. Inviting ergonomics offer a perfect fit for both rider and pillion while the windshield is height adjustable to suit both highway and city riding. There’s plenty of storage room (48 litres - enough for two full-face helmets) beneath the seat plus a 12V power socket in the glove box and – underlining its premium credentials – LED headlight, position lights, taillight and license plate light.
The 125cc liquid-cooled engine is a four-valve unit with an intake and exhaust system designed for strong mid-range and top end power. It offers swift pick-up from standstill, class-leading rolling acceleration from 90km/h and strong high speed performance. A host of low-friction technologies mean that this is combined with impressive fuel economy of 43.5km/l (WMTC mode). For 2017, the engine also now meets the stringent EURO4 emission regulations. The allowable limits for exhaust tailpipe pollutants such as carbon monoxide, hyrdrocarbons and nitrous oxide specified by EURO4 are approximately half of those for EURO3.
To deftly manage city streets and cruise open highways, the steel frame – with carefully optimised wheelbase and steering geometry – employs supple 33mm telescopic forks and twin rear shock absorbers. A 15-inch front wheel provides stability and confidence, backed up by the 14-inch rear. Large diameter single discs front and rear come with the option of ABS.
The Forza 125 is the best-selling premium 125 scooter in Europe in 2016. For the 2017 model, the formula has been even further enhanced with the addition of Honda Smart Key technology, revised rear suspension, new Michelin tyres and 3 new colours.
A range of purpose-built accessories is ready to tailor the Forza 125 perfectly to its owner’s lifestyle and includes heated grips, rear carrier and 35L colour-matched top box.
