The original Honda NSS300 Forza was made between 2013-2018.
In 2018, Honda also slightly updated the 125 version of their Forza scooter. The Italian built Honda has been specifically produced for the European market and like the 300 is designed to be a luxurious scooter, to give the most a 125 scooter can offer.
Honda have tweaked the styling, new clocks and LED lights, but more importantly added an electronic adjustable screen. As like the 300 underseat storage has also increased, and now comfortably accommodate two full-face helmets.
The clocks are now neater; the overall design has a classy look to it. The electronic screen, as like the 300 isn’t fixed and can be electronically set at any position. Under the seat space has increased by 2l, and up front there’s additional storage with a separate iPhone holder and 12v socket. All the design touches give the 125 a quality feel.
The idling stop technology works effortless, like a modern car disabling the engine once you’re stood still. When you want to move away you simply twist the throttle and the engine turn backs on automatically. It’s designed to save fuel in town, Honda quote a 310mile tank range from the 11.5l fuel tank.
The 4v engine 125 four-stroke has some kick to it, off the mark it’s more than quick enough to keep with fast traffic. Even on fast roads it’s happy to cruise at 60mph and a little more. You can almost question why would you want the Forza 300 But at £4689 it’s only £410 cheaper than the 300 and on PCP it’s actually £10 a month more. So, the question really should be why buy the 125.
