The large scooter segment of the motorcycle market, in which Forza commands a prominent has, over the years, root as a major genre of vehicles that offers a sense of value and convenience. to its easy riding disposition, the comes standard-equipped with a Brake System, and is also in a more fully featured version.

As with most scooters, the Forza has a long and smaller diameter wheels those found on motorcycles and bikes, with the added of having more room the seat for a large storage Its wide, deeply stepped provides a relaxed riding much like that of a cruiser, and its big, stylish console offers lots of storage space for smaller

Start the engine and roll on the and the Forza takes off smoothly. control is as easy as grabbing the two mounted on the handlebars; right for the like a standard motorcycle, and for the rear — though its configuration also provides to the front disk brake as well.

For several years now, all of Honda’s big scooters have standard-equipped with the Combined System. Parallel to this, models have also offered in Combined-ABS versions provide the added braking of highly responsive Antilock to furtheraugment their Combined operation. For this ride, I the Combined-ABS version of the Forza.

generally distribute their force to all four wheels the brake pedal is pressed. In the of motorcycles, however, front and brake operation has traditionally that riders operate brakes independently in a well-balanced corresponding to road conditions, and requiring extensive experience to master. In other words, how braking force can efficiently be can vary dramatically depending on the of the rider.

The Combined Brake can compensate for any lack of experience by a highly effective balance of force to both wheels, it a sort of experience support

Riding around town, the maintains a remarkably stable when slowing and stopping. most big scooters with wheelbases, with a rider it carries most of its load on the wheel. When the left lever is squeezed, braking is applied to not only the rear caliper, but also one of the three built into its front caliper, delivering a superb of braking control.

Once I got to it, I found that I could on using my right hand for control and acceleration, while my left hand to take of all the braking chores. I soon this style of operation to be simpler and easy to manage, and was delighted to discover that impressively powerful braking was available using only the lever.

Some riders may sneer the Combined Brake System and ABS are devices that break with the core fundamentals of riding. One might think these critics had first-hand with these systems, but in that’s rarely the case. of these opinions were at through gossip and hearsay, or by somebody’s blog or tweet these brake systems as totally unnecessary.

For this I really must insist you somehow find a way to experience braking performance for yourself. the simple grip of one lever, I this scooter’s brakes to smoothly and automatically duplicate techniques that took me to develop on my own. If anything, it like it was providing sympathetic for my years of experience, not taking out of my hands.

So, judging from the of my decades of motorcycle riding did I find anything to complain The answer is an unequivocal ‘No.’ In I found myself completely astounded even, by its seamless

Each time I squeezed the brake lever, the Forza’s Brake System let me consistently its full benefits. And this version greatly reduced any about skidding caused by stops or braking over or slippery road surfaces, when road conditions because of rain.

And the advantages of ABS can be everywhere, not just in emergency For example, when grabbing the with my left hand, I that if I increased pressure for the ABS to kick in, the result was a quick response felt through the lever. In other words, the instantly let me know when exceeded the limits of rear grip.

Since ABS operation on or rainy road surfaces can be similarly felt, I found I was to stay more relaxed in conditions than I ever

From the image I’ve had of big scooters, with their rideability, ample carrying and simple operation, I certainly expected to be able to experience a of ‘rider-machine integration’ on par with sports bikes. However, the superlative Combined-ABS system made that fusion

While Honda’s Combined System is well-suited to the Forza’s characteristics, if you clear your and simply use your right to accelerate and your left to brake, and occasionally the fingers on right hand to add in a bit more control when needed, soon find yourself more relaxed and composed, and you’ll awake to the sensation riding has become much enjoyable.

After all, if you too much on a machine’s operation, soon notice that you fully enjoy the pleasures of the So I have to wonder if a secondary in the development of the Combined Brake + ABS wasn’t to simply subtract the and distraction of braking from the joy of I suggest you to try it out as soon as you can and find own answer.
