Honda has launched in Europe the 2023 Forza 125, its 125cc ‘premium’ scooter, which arrives with design updates, a new dashboard and a Special Edition, but retains the design and mechanics of the previous model.
Based on the bigger ‘sister’ Forza 350, the 2023 Forza 125 now has a new front look influenced by the Forza 750, with more sober and elegant LED headlights. The general lines are sharper but still show a lot of sportiness, characteristic of this Maxi GT model.
In addition, to complete the exclusivity package, it arrives with a Special Edition, which arrives in Gray color with red wheels, seat stitching, dial surrounds, logos and details. Also included in this edition are darkened pillion footrests and stainless steel floor plates.

Otherwise, it remains the same model, without any mechanical or design changes. In 2021, it brought cosmetic and aero upgrades, a 40mm taller windshield, and a USB Type-C socket instead of an ACC charging point.
