Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has delivered the first lot of four Honda Forza 300 scooters, becoming the first company in the country to enter the mid-size premium scooter segment. Now, we do not have the price of the scooter yet because the models were special order units that were pre-booked by a few customers and these are BS4 models. However, Honda says that the Forza 300 (customer unit), which was on display at the Honda BigWing showroom, has garnered great response from customers, and the company has decided to officially launch the scooter in Financial Year 2021.
The Honda Forza 300 is the first Maxi Scooter offering from the Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer in India and it's powered by a 279cc, liquid-cooled engine. The fuel-injected SOHC motor is a four-valve four-stroke unit that is tuned to churn out 24.8 bhp at 7000 rpm and 27.2 Nm at 5,750 rpm. The Forza 300 comes with CVT automatic transmission with an automatic centrifugal clutch and a V-Belt. The Forza 300 also comes with Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) which helps in regaining rear-wheel traction by detecting the difference between the front and rear wheel speeds, calculating the slip ratio and further controlling engine torque via the fuel injection.
