    Not at all. It looks like an overgrown PCX 150.

    Honda announced the CTX line (2 new motorcycles) but no Forza 300 yet. C'mon, Honda! Make a litte effort here!

    For all of you Kymco freaks:

    Comparison

    As a smaller yet capable maxi-scooter, the Forza competes with only a few other modern scooters in blending touring comforts with miserly fuel milage. The most direct competition to the Forza is Kymco’s Downtown 300i, which targets the same growing niche. These two machines perhaps represent the future of maxi-scooters, as the comforts of bigger machines trickle down into more fuel efficient yet still capable scooters. Comparatively, the Downtown 300i is the more powerful machine (29 hp vs. 24.5 hp) but that is also reflected in the fuel milage (~55mpg vs. 71mpg) so you’ll have to choose your trade off.

    Ok, one more thing:

    The Forza retails for about $5,300 in Thailand. ABS is standard.

    I got an average of 60MPG after 75 fuel-ups, 70% of the mileage done
    with a malossi sports variator (read: revving it's nuts off). Mostly stop&go
    traffic, and I usually warm the bike up before riding when it's cold outside.

    I had a couple of 65-73MPG tanks on a stock bike.

    Oh I'm a Honda fanboy too.

    That's my first go-to brand.. if I could ever afford the one I like.

    Like the NC700 Integra right now..

    I don't know. The X10 doesn't really do it for me... Should be a great scooter though.
