Are you thinking of the 125 Forza or the 300?

Is there any finance still to be paid on your PCX?

Assuming that your PCX is bought and paid for, swapping to a 125 Forza gains you improved comfort and weather protection, more underseat storage and a slightly higher top speed.

The price for a new one is absolutely eye-watering, a 300 costs roughly the same and is a far more capable machine.
Even it is expensive for what it is though.

If you are on L-plates and a CBT, my advice would be to invest in some training and either an A2 licence or if you are over 24 the DAS route to a full licence.
Then you will have access to a far wider range of much better more capable fun machines for less money.

In Australia we only have the Forza NSS300 model; so a 300 is, IMHO, much better than a 150! Easier to commute and tour.

But if you are planning to go up in size look at a Piaggio BV350! The NSS300 is only 280cc where as the BV is nearly 330cc and is a little narrower than the Forza - a really nice scooter.

Regards,
Peter

I had full intentions of purchasing a PCX this Spring, until Honda put the Forza on sale....for only 1,300 more Canadian dollars, I got twice (nearly) the cc, ABS, faster bike, more storage, heavier therefore less stealable....and it's RED.....not dark blue, so more visible on the roads.....very happy with my choice, now to get my M2 so I can take delivery....

Smart move..I went from a 150 PCX to 300 Forza.. No comparison. Much better bike , more stable, smoother , bigger.You might want to consider a bigger windshield however.

The Forza is more oriented for Highway riding. If that's part of your intended use then the Forza is the better choice. After riding the PCX for 2100 miles I can attest to the fact that a little more power of the highway would be nice. I'm riding on side roads more often because of the power deficiency of the PCX for Highway speed. I would classify the PCX for city riding or not so fast country roads. The PCX's cruising sweet spot is 55mph.
