Honda Forza 125 in Matt Pearl Cool White with Matt Pacific Blue

Honda has chosen the Paris Motor Show to unveil its brand new 125cc twist and go scooter ready for 2015 and called ‘Forza 125’ which comes with Stop/Start technology.

The new Forza 125 uses a brand new engine which 4-stroke, 4-valve, liquid-cooled which provides 14bhp @ 8,750rpm and Honda claim a fuel economy of approximately 123mpg courtesy of its Idling Stop function. After three seconds of being stationary and with a brake applied, the engine will cut out, until the throttle is twisted once again.

The new 125cc from Honda is all set to challenge its own stable-mate, the impressive Honda PCX125, which is the best-selling scooter in the UK this year with over 1,200 registrations up to the end of August.

As with many other new powered two-wheelers announced over the past 24 hours, the Honda Forza 125 also comes with goodies; ABS as standard, height adjustable screen, storage space of 48 litres (enough for two full-faces helmets) plus a 12V power socket in the glove box and LED head and taillight.

Accessories include heated grips and a 35 litre colour-matched top box. Three colour options are, in plain old English:

  • White
  • Black
  • Silver

But in Honda press release language that equate to:

  • Matt Pearl Cool White with Matt Pacific Blue
  • Pearl Nightstar Black with Castagna Brown
  • Moondust Silver with Matt Cynos Grey

Black with Brown; stealth-likeSilver and grey as your third and final colour option

Mr. Nagura, Large Project Leader Forza 125, said: The team’s aim with the Forza 125 was to make the ultimate 125cc scooter, with the very best of everything. It offers both great highway performance for a fun, easy commute, and class-leading acceleration for the city. All with classy, premium styling, and a very strong focus on practicality and comfort.
