The first Honda Forza 300 has been delivered in India and is getting traction and everyone exited. A machine like this would cost anywhere between 4.5 lakh to 5 lakh. The question remains how niche the consumer will be of this 300 cc two wheeler hybrid. It will be tradeoff for the consumer between a mid-sized motorcycle and the Honda Forza 300. This new breed of two wheeler which will add flair along with comfort, style and mileage to the ride.

Honda Forza 125 would catch the pulse of the consumer more than the Honda Forza 300 variant.

Unless, Honda is only targeting those who are willing to pay a premium price for a new kind of product, they will have to launch Forza 125 as well. The 125 is power packed with features and reasonable power with 14.8 BHP. If this comes to India, the lower price of the Forza 125 will surely gain Honda more and more mass customers.
