Honda Forza 125 Review

If you want something cheap to run, which looks great, is fast and that won’t let you down then this is the bike for you. Spend the extra money and get the newer model because there is such a difference.

REVIEW

★★★★★
Looks, comfort, handling, range, an electric screen on a 125!
× There are much cheaper 125s available, screen could be taller

Honda Forza 125

I have owned the Honda Forza 125 since September 2018 after many of my pals had the older version but I opted to spend the extra money for the newer model. I love my gadgets so I fancied a go at all the fancy parts on the newer model!

My main reason to buying the Forza is I am a full time Deliveroo driver working 40+ hours a week and over 100 miles a day so I needed the best possible bike to keep up with my demands. Below is all my personal reasons to why the bike is such a great bike and a few minor nitty gritty negatives.

Honda Forza 125

Positives

  • Large fuel tank up to 280 miles
  • Very comfortable seat with lots of leg room
  • Looks amazing
  • Fast with amazing handling (handling has been tested and pushed to its limits)
  • Huge amount of storage under the seat big enough for two full face helmets
  • Large glove box
  • Great features: I thought the keyless start was a bit strange but works great and is so much better than a key, lots of information on the dash
  • Don’t be put off by how big and wide the scooter is as you can still filter in city traffic

Negatives

  • A few of the controls and switches are too close together and a bit pointless
  • The fuel and seat switch feels a it cheap and sometimes won’t open either
  • The screen could of been a bit taller -  I assume the bike is aimed at taller people hence why you can barely put your foot flat on the ground and I’m 5’11
  • You have to be a bit heavy handed with the throttle for the bike to even start moving

After all this, if you're in the market for a 125cc scooter and want something cheap to run, that looks great, is fast and something that won’t let you down then this is the bike for you. Spend the extra money and get the newer model as there is so much difference to the older model. I couldn’t believe how different they are, but that’s another topic.
