Honda Launches 2021 Honda Forza 750 Maxi Scooter
The 2021 Honda Forza 750 has been launched for the European market. The flagship model joins the brand’s maxi scooter lineup alongside the newly introduced Forza 135 and Forza 350.
Replacing the Integra, the Forza 750 is developed for the daily commute and weekend adventures. Similar to the X-ADV and NC750X, the Forza 750 is powered by a 745 cc, parallel-twin liquid cooled engine with PGM-FI electronic fuel injection technology.
While the bore, stroke, layout and CO2 emissions are identical, the engine churns out a higher output – 57.7 hp at 6,750 rpm and 69 Nm at 4,750 rpm to be exact. On top of that, the mill is also Euro 5 compliant. With a measured consumption of 27.8km/l (WMTC mode) and its 13.2-litre fuel tank, the Forza 750 boasts a cruising range of 370 km.
As for electronics, the Forza 750 is equipped with Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) which is tasked to manage the rear wheel torque over three levels. Level 1 allows the minimum intervention for the lightest control over rear wheel spin, Level 2 is the default setting for general riding conditions while Level 3 provides maximum control for slippery roads.
There is also Throttle-by-Wire (TBW) technology that offers four riding modes, each with different power delivery, engine braking, HSTC and ABS characteristics. Standard delivers a balanced middle point, Sport gives more aggressive engine power delivery and braking, Rain transmits low engine power delivery and braking while Custom offers custom options for HSTC.
Sending the power to the rear wheel is a six-speed dual-clutch transmission that promises quick and seamless gear changes. It can be operated either manually or automatically, the latter featuring three shifting schedules and a User mode that allows the rider to customise the DCT’s shifting pattern.
The Forza 750 uses a rugged tubular steel diamond frame with a wheelbase of 1,590 mm and rake and trail set at 27 degree and 104 mm, respectively. At the front is a 41-mm upside-down fork while at the rear is a monoshock damper connected with an aluminium Prolink swingarm.
The Forza 750 rolls on cast aluminium wheels measuring 15 inch at the front and 17 inch at the rear, shod with 120/70 R17 and 160/60 R15 front and rear tyres. Meanwhile, the braking system comprises a pair of 310 mm discs and four-piston calipers at the front, and a single 240 mm disc with a single-piston caliper at the rear.
Other equipment includes a five-inch TFT display with Smartphone Voice Control system, Smart Key and an Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) function. An under-seat luggage space provides 22 litres of storage space and a USB charging socket at the rear of the compartment. There’s also a glove compartment in the right-side inner fairing.
