Honda’s Forza 125 was designed specifically for discerning European customers who demand the very most out of their scooter in every respect. And straight out of the crate the Forza 125 hit the ground rolling, proving an instant sales hit thanks to its comprehensive mix of sporty and ‘GT’ elements wrapped up in a distinctive design package. Evolving over the years in response to owner feedback, through September 2023 it has now sold over 115,000 units to date.
The reasons for its enduring popularity is a lively four-valve version of Honda’s eSP (‘enhanced Smart Power’) engine. The compact dimensions, sports-oriented attitude and handling ability provides traffic-busting agility around town, while its sit-in comfort, wind protection and strong top end power make easy work of longer-range highway commuting. Add in plenty of storage, premium features front to back, a new sharp-edged design aesthetic and Honda build quality, and the overall package is truly compelling.
Fittingly, it’s never stood still. In 18YM – maintaining a steep development curve – the Forza 125 received a complete, sporty re-style and rider-focused upgrades including full LED lighting and electric screen. 21YM brought cosmetic and aerodynamic updates, 40mm extra screen travel and a USB Type-C socket instead of ACC charging point.
23YM saw the Forza 125 move on again with a sleek new redesign and the introduction of a Special Edition. Manufactured in Honda Italia Industriale, for 24YM a brand-new contemporary colour cements its position as the sports GT scooter.
After a style refresh in 23YM Honda’s premium sports/GT Forza 125 scooter gains an elegant new colour for 24YM. Specification is unchanged, and includes HSTC, electric screen adjustment, USB Type-C socket, storage space for two full-face helmets, full LED lighting and Smart Key operation.
23YM saw the introduction of a brand-new front fairing that gave the Forza 125 a new even more elegant and refined identity. Led by chiselled dual LED headlights, the Forza 125 took its styling cues directly from the range-topping Forza 750.
The electric screen adjusts through 180mm travel to maximise freedom or wind protection. A USB Type-C socket in the glovebox provides a handy charging point, Smart Key operation adds convenience and there’s room for two full-face helmets under the seat.
The sure-footed chassis is unchanged for 24YM, as is the four-valve, water-cooled SOHC engine which employs Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) to maintain rear tyre grip.
