Motorcycle-USA.com has taken an initial spin on Honda’s new midsize Forza 300. Contributor Justin Dawes spent some quality time getting to know all 279cc of Japanese scooter. According to Dawes, the Forza seems to hit a sweet spot in terms of size and performance, but all is not perfect.
“The compact feel does, however, create a light and nimble ride when cutting through the cityscape. The slightest input from your body is met with a direction change. Darting around the town, the Honda really hits its stride with a character that isn’t too twitchy like smaller scooters while not being oafish or cumbersome either. Out on the open backroads the Forza can carve a mean corner, if the pavement is smooth. And that is a big if. The fairly low-tech suspension can be overwhelmed with moderate sized imperfections. Truly rough roads will not be an enjoyable experience on the bright red Honda.”
