Honda Forza 350 Patented, Might Launch In India
Although never having a formal debut in India, the Honda Forza 350 maxi-scooter has suddenly gained popularity. Honda has also only lately applied for a patent in India for the design of the most recent Forza 350 model.
Honda has a history of protecting its intellectual property by patenting designs for foreign vehicles even if they were never sold in our market, so it’s quite likely that this Forza design patent is just another example of the Japanese business doing so. Nonetheless, there is a slim chance that anything may actually happen as a result of this.
A very limited number of these scooters were sent by Honda a few years ago as part of a dealer demonstration, and by the time the exhibition was complete, every single scooter had found a buyer. Even if the market for such a maxi-scooter may be small, it does exist in India.
The Indian scooter industry is expanding, which encourages manufacturers to release bigger, more costly products. Last year saw the introduction of the breathtakingly beautiful BMW C 400 GT and two 300cc Keeway scooters. When the Forza 350 ultimately enters Indian showrooms, its price may exceed Rs 5 lakh.
Engine capacity went boosted from 279cc to 330cc. Thanks to Honda’s increased bore and stroke, Honda Forza 350 now generates 29.2PS at 7500rpm and 31.5Nm at 5250rpm, up 1.3PS and 4.3Nm over Forza 300. It is more powerful than the Forza 300 and consumes less gasoline as well. Featuring rider aid features including dual-channel ABS and traction control. The hardware of the Forza 350 consists of a telescopic fork and dual rear shocks. A single 256mm disc up front and a 240mm disc in the rear are used for braking. It has 15-inch wheels with 120/70-section and 140/70-section tyres on the front and back, respectively.
The Honda Forza 350 seems more streamlined than the Forza 300. The vehicle’s more upscale appearance is a result of sharper lines, body panels that overlap, and clever material use. A seat height of 780mm should be perfect for riders who are shorter. Under the seat, there is space for up to two full-face helmets. The three colours that are offered are matte grey, pearl grey, or matte blue.
The Forza 350’s all-LED lighting system and emergency stop signal (ESS) both flash quickly as you apply a lot of braking force. It is now possible to electronically adjust the windscreen up to 180mm, an increase of 40mm. The former charging connector on the front apron has been replaced by a USB port in the glove box, where you can neatly keep your phone. Further crucial components include keyless ignition, a semi-digital instrument panel with two analogue dials, and a centre LCD screen that displays the odometer, trip metres, and maintenance warnings.
