Posted on by  

Meet the 2014 Honda Forza, a modern scooter built with comfort, agility and practicality in mind. The new 2014 Honda Forza has the capacity to carry up to two people and is propelled by a 279cc, liquid-cooled, single cylinder, SOHC, four stroke engine which is controlled by a convenient automatic transmission.

For enhanced comfort, the scooter’s engine is mounted low into the frame and comes with a lower link that minimizes vibration and dampens jarring bumps.

You also get a set of plush suspensions that consist of a front 35 mm telescopic fork (3.7 inches of wheel travel) and a twin rear shock (3.8 inches travel).

The 2014 Honda Forza is offered in two versions, namely the base model and the ABS model. The first comes with a price tag of $5,599, while the latter can be yours for $6,099.

Hit the jump for more information on the Honda Forza.

Overview

Honda Forza

Honda’s new Forza™ is a scooter that’s way more than what you think a scooter can be. With the power to carry you and a passenger on the highway thanks to a smooth, powerful all-new engine, integral storage (enough for two helmets) and even a power outlet for your accessories, the Forza bridges the gaps between fun, practical, and luxurious. Whether you use it for commuting, around-town, errand running, or just a way to get out and have fun, the Forza is a great transportation option that just about anyone can enjoy.

It’s the details that set the Forza apart.
Some manufacturers don’t take their scooter lineup very seriously. But not Honda—and our new Forza is a perfect example. It’s full of technical innovation and attention to detail that not only make the Forza reliable, practical, and a great value, they also make it more fun to ride!

PGM-FI Engine
With plenty of power to carry you and a passenger too, the Forza features liquid cooling and Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) for great performance. Plus Forza gets an estimated 68 MPG*!

Lower Floating Link
A low-mounted engine featuring a unique lower link minimizes engine vibration and dampens jarring bumps from the road.

V-Matic Transmission
With the Honda V-Matic automatic transmission, riding couldn’t be easier. Just start the engine, twist the gas, and go. The V-Matic means no shifting, ever— so you concentrate on the road ahead and simply enjoy the ride! The V-matic is a continuously variable design, so all you’ll feel is a smooth transition of power.

Low Center of Gravity Engine Placement
Mounting the engine low keeps the Forza’s center of gravity low as well. That helps with the Forza’s nimble and capable handling.

Rider Comfort
That long, plush seat does more than just look comfortable—it’s probably nicer than that sofa in your living room. The stepped passenger section gives your copilot a better view. Besides great style, Forza’s bodywork is all about function to help protect you from the wind and the elements.

Convenient Storage
Flip the seat open and you have room for two full face helmets or enough groceries for Thanksgiving dinner. There’s also a convenient helmet holder underneath the seat that allows you to secure your helmet while away from your scoot. There’s even a second compartment in the dash for your mobile phone, wallet, or MP3 player.

Three-Gallon Fuel Tank
With its estimated 68 MPG and three-gallon tank, you’ll be able to go far between fill-ups.

Convenient Power Outlet
Need to charge your cell phone or other devices while you ride? No worries—the Forza’s convenient 12-volt power outlet makes it easy.

Multi-Function Display
Instrument display features speedometer, odometer, tachometer, A&B trip meters, fuel gauge, clock, average fuel consumption meter, PGM-FI Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) Coolant temperature gauge, low oil pressure indictor, ABS indicator (where applicable), parking brake indicator, and oil change indicator.

Electric Start
Reliable electric start, combined with the Forza’s fuel injection, ensures hassle-free starting with push-button ease, even on cold mornings.
