For 2023, Honda has chosen to put its Forza 350 to work by proposing an updated version both in terms of equipment and look. The new model was presented in Thailand (where the scooter is built) but it is likely to come to us too.
No technical news
Compared to the model presented in 2021 – click here for our test – the technical sheet, we said, remains unchanged: therefore single cylinder of 329.6 cm3, 29.2 horsepower at 7,500 rpm, torque of 31.5 Nm at 5,250, maximum declared speed of 137 km / h for an average consumption of 30 km / liter and, from the point of view of the chassis, tubular steel frame mated to suspension with double lateral shock absorber and 15-inch front and 14-inch rear wheels with single disc and two-channel ABS. Equipment and look, on the other hand, are new.
The most obvious retouch undoubtedly concerns the front, refreshed with a plastic and a new separate double headlight. Also new is the design of the rear light assembly, which however maintains the lines of the tail unaltered. News also as regards the standard equipment, with a completely new and complete instrumentation of the Honda Smartphone Voice Control System (HSVS), for the connection (and management) of the smartphone (in particular for calls and music) with voice commands . Finally the colors: gray, red, blue and black.
It remains to be seen whether this version will debut in Europe. to find out more we just have to wait for EICMA which will be staged in a few days …
