Honda Forza 300 Overview
One of Honda’s most popular scooters in its current range, the Forza 300 has been updated a few times since its original release but it still makes for a great commuting machine.
Comfortable, cheap to run and reliable – what more could you want for a work horse or your first scooter? Honda have made the Forza 300 feel sportier, lightweight and rather eye-catching.
The Forza 300 shares its engine with Honda’s SH300i claiming a top speed of 80-85mph – not bad for a scooter we reckon. The single cylinder four-stroke engine has proven reliable and hearty in its other models so we expect the same for the Forza 300.
No expense spared on extra gadgets including keyless ignition, LED lights, new clocks and a electronic screen. – you can also opt for a 45l top box too.

Good weather protection. Powered screen. ABS and traction control. Lots of storage space under seat....two full face helmets.
The new model has a slightly bigger engine and a bigger screen
Great fun. Last bike was a Triumph Thunderbird 1700. The Thunderbird was lovely but very heavy.
Well built. Can't fault it. No problems.
Excellent brakes. Powerful.
Very smooth. Excellent handling. Quiet. Very light.
It's only 270cc but goes well, even two up. 85mph
Amazing 94 mph. Cheap tax and insurance.
CVT transmission for commuting is fantastic. So much cheaper than running a car. The shopping bag retainers prove very useful as there isn't a lot of underseat storage.
no improvements necessary
Great to ride commuting around Bristol. Plenty of nip off the lights, picks up speed promptly. Also runs fine on brief motorway stints too. I've never done a journey over 25 miles on it so can't say how comfy it would be on a distance. Pulls fine with pillions too
Fantastic Honda build quality and servicing is a breeze. I did breakdown once due to corroded wiring loom, but other than that it starts first time all weathers and rides great.
ABS works well. have had it kick in on a few occasions when having to brake hard and suddenly ( usually due too poor judgment or carelessness of bus/car drivers!).
Rides perfectly for my personal use which is an approx. 25 mile round trip most days, commuting to work.
Powerful enough for my needs, I'm sure other drivers are surprised to see the acceleration and the speed maintained on motorway.
Cheap as chips ! Between 75 and 80 mpg and very reliable often going through mot without muchado.
Cheap to run, quick around town, can take motorways in its stride, fantastic storage (2 helmets, although my Shark doesn't fit).
Fairing not that great at speed. Tends to push air into helmet visor.
Really comfortable. The seat is firm but correctly positioned for me. I am 6ft tall. Much better than others that I tried when buying.
Only a year old. So far no issues.
Brakes work well. Can be fierce if you want but not grabby when you don't. ABS saved me once on a slipper man-hole as did the traction control on another. Lesson? Man-hole covers are dangerous to bikes but this one helps you.
The ride is nice and smooth. No problem to get to 70mph. Would never try faster, of course. It feels really lightweight as the centre of gravity is low. Corners? Probably leans more than my old VFR. Takes them in its stride. A good product Honda.
It has plenty of grunt around town. The variable automatic gearing means it goes to max torque (if you ask it) and just stays there. Makes if feel nippy. Only gets 4* because I have come to it from a supersport. Grumpy, I know.
Economical. I get about 80mpg. Not as good as the PCX125 but this bike is better. Servicing costs are OK. Not too much to do but fairing has to come off for everything.
