2014 Honda Forza Scooter MPG - Estimated 68 Miles Per Gallon

2014 Honda Forza Scooter Release Date - August 23 and then the 2014 Forza will be on SALE at Honda of Chattanooga.

A lot of people may remember the Honda Reflex scooter which was a 250cc scooter that was quite popular for many years. Honda dropped that model a few years ago and up to 2013 we had quite a large gap between the PCX150 Scooter to the SilverWing 600 Scooter. Honda listened and for 2014 they are bringing us a scooter to the US that will bridge that gap and offer a lot of bang for the buck with the 2014 Forza 300 Scooter.

//// Our 2014 Forza Sale price is too low to advertise due to Honda's new Minimum Advertised Price policy. Below are a few different options on how you can get our 2014 Forza 300 Sale Price from us at Honda of Chattanooga.

The 2014 Honda Forza is a mid-displacement machine that boasts some pretty high-tech credentials: a fuel-injected liquid-cooled 300-class engine with a single overhead camshaft and four-valve head with sophisticated roller rocker arms. That all adds up to a ride that's big enough for extended rides for two, but versatile, practical and economical enough to keep transportation costs way down.

2014 Forza Underseat Storage -
It doesn't get any easier than this: Just pop a latch and the Forza’s seat tips up, revealing a huge storage compartment big enough for two full-face helmets or a bunch of groceries. It’s secure and weather-resistant, too.

  1. This is not a 300cc scoot. It's a 279cc scoot. Yeah it's 29cc larger than a 250, but it's also 21cc smaller than a 300cc.

    1. You're correct, it is not a 300cc scooter. It is in fact 279cc but all of the manufacturers round up on everything from scooters, ATVs, motorcycles etc. If you notice I didn't say it was a 300cc scooter, it is a "300 class" scooter.

      Quick example:
      TRX500 Foreman - isn't 500cc's even though it is called a 500.
      CBR600RR - isn't 600cc's but it is called a 600.
      CRF50 - isn't 50cc's but it is called a 50.

      Thanks for reading and taking the time to post up.

    2. It is now July and still no news update on when we can expect to see the new Forza in a showroom. When will the Forza be avaialable in the US?

  2. Are you able to place orders for these now. The dealer here in pittsburgh said it was not on his ordering list in May?

    1. Sadly, they weren't on the order list for May. It looks like the release date may be pushed back to August but I hope I'm wrong. Our orders work off a 2 month window, what we order in May will arrive in July and since they weren't on the order for May it looks like they won't be arriving in July like planned. Unless Honda does something completely different that the normal chain of events which they have been known to do in the past.

      I'll keep the Blog updated though when we get to place our orders and when the new estimated 2014 Forza 300 release date will be.

      Thanks for reading and taking the time to post up.


    3. It is referring to the warranty for the 2014 Forza. It has a transferable one-year, unlimited-mileage limited warranty; extended coverage is available with a Honda Protection Plan through us at Honda of Chattanooga on the 2014 Forza.

  3. Nice scooter but they seemed to shy away from saying anything about touring. I tour 2-up all over. On my Burgman 400 and it has more then enough. I would think minus interstates, you could tour with the Honda?

    1. This has the power to do interstates. This engine is the same one that powers the honda sh300i over in Europe and that has a legendary following, some of which have over 100k miles on it.

  4. Why only red color when I see that in other countries they offer white, grey and black...What is wrong with Honda. Are they dumping the red color because it is not as popular in Europe or Asia? Will consider this bike but not in red.

  5. I'm so pleased that Honda has (finally) filled the gap between my SH150i and the Silver Wing. I wish that these bikes had been on the order lists for May, but I presume that I can wait until August to actually see one. I also echo the sentiments expressed above about red being the only color...I don't mind red, but it would have been nice to have some other choices.

    1. We in Europe would like red not the dour colors we are saddled with. Perhaps
      Honda relate these sad colors to the mournful economic state we are in here not the vibrant state of the good ol US of A.
      Keep smiling chums it ain't all that bad.
      PS we also have been let down by false delivery promises by Honda

  6. Does this scooter have screw and locknut valve clearance adjusters, or does it use shims?

    Had a bit of memory loss and I couldn't remember if the 2014 Forza was on our July order sheet or not, which would make it an August delivery.

    It was on our July order so we will have the 2014 Forza in stock here at Honda of Chattanooga in August.

  8. HondaofChattanoogaJuly 17, 2013 at 5:56 PM

    2014 Honda Forza release date is now scheduled for August of 2013, then we'll have the 2014 Forza in stock and on Sale here at Honda of Chattanooga.

  10. I'm considering the Honda Forza and been looking at photos and videos. One thing that caught my attention was the helmets the guy and gal are wearing in one of the promotion videos. The logo on the helmet has a stylized rider within a V shape. Does anyone know what brand / maker it is?
    Please email any info. Can't wait to see the Forza!
