Scooters seem to have been made the new commodity over which manufacturers are going to wage feature wars, each new radical release pushing the boundaries of what we’ve come to expect from this erstwhile utilitarian method of commuting. The newest entrant threatening to defy norms is the Honda Forza 125, which was unveiled at the ongoing 2014 Paris Motor Show. The Forza is a scooter which meshes many worlds together. It’s been designed so as to be able to offer the comfort of a larger capacity two-wheeler. Honda promises a ride experience that is equally enjoyable on highways and city roads.

The Honda Forza 125 has a beefy front end. The tall fly screen and adjoining parts lend the scooter a distinctive appearance. Most notable are the strong lines that have been incorporated into the body of the scooter, which can be seen in the mid section and the way the seats are oriented as well. A 48-liter capacity means that the Forza is not only a looker but also quite a practical choice for commuters. An LCD display also finds its place on board. This makes it possible for riders to keep a tab on stats such as fuel economy and temperature of the coolant.
