the could just use the engine e2 from the current SH300 as it's Euro 4 as far as I know
Just checked and the latest SH300 is Euro 4 so it is an easy fix for Honda to use the same engine.
I bet they will bring out a revised Forza 300 with Euro 4 engine and also extra features like the keyless start that the SH300 and 125 have :)

I've always presumed that the SH and Forza engine are fundamentally the same thing (despite Honda's claims that the Forza engine was new), so yes, it is likely to be a very easy fix!

I have watched a few clips about the Xmax 300 and it looks impressive. If it is the end of the road for my trusted Forza maybe I will give the Xmax 300 a try. it certainly looks good....Bit like the forza 125

my Forza is now with the insurance company for assessment of the damage. Let's see what the verdict is.
I do have a courtesy scooter...another forza 300 but standard windshield and I have forgotten how windy that gets on the motorway.

I am rubbish at mechanics but I've found a really good independent who I use for both bikes and who is very reasonable cost wise. Unfortunately the dealer I choose to carry out the recall work was a bad apple but I'm reasonably confident Honda will offer some assistance. Great if they do, if they don't there are bigger things in this world to worry about! Health is wealth and all the time I can ride I happy.

Hi Pete,
Can you tell me who you use?
I'm in Cliffe Woods so have used Maidstone Honda for the first two services and pump recall.
Will use an independent next Feb for next service and MOT.
Was going to drop it in at Danny's ( G Force ) up at Capstone.
Maybe meet up for a ride sometime?

Not surprised - It looked a hefty impact you said it felt strange to ride. And apart from that, the bodywork panels are insane prices. Oh well, time to argue with the insurers about value and choose your next scoot.

Let's see what the offer will be. as for a replacement so far it will either be another Forza 300, maybe a new Xmax 300 or an NC750X! I used to have an NC and it was great
