Found this on Honda's UK site. Surprisingly complete set of numbers.

Found some better pictures on the Greek site also they claim 58Hp. Scroll down.

Thanks for posting up these links Don.  I like parts of the Forza 750 ... other parts not so much. 

Having said that, I'd be interested in test riding it to make an informed judgement.  Unfortunately, it's a safe bet that it'll never see the shores of Canada.

I'd much rather have the XADV 750.

Another bike never to see the light of the Great White North unless it's a rider from abroad!

I'd've much rather seen them go for touring instead of the latest trend in "sport". Between my AK, the Tmax, the SYM and now this Honda they all look about the same but don't offer the protection and storage of older model scoots like the Swing, X10, Burgman, etc.

I'll go have a peek at it this spring but with a jaundiced eye.

Yes, I don't see any reason to replace my Tmax with the 750 Forza.
If I didn't have the Tmax, I would consider it, but I'd much prefer the limited off road capabilities of the XADV.

Here's a Honda Forza 750 video review that I found to be pretty objective and a good watch.  The reviewer seems pretty realistic and balanced in his comments.

https://youtu.be/Zf2GtmuqGjU

There's a lot I like about it but I really don't see it as a major advancement of the maxi-scooter genre.  It truly blurs the maxi-scooter/motorcycle lines.  I'm also not keen on the chain and having to swing my leg over like a motorcycle (just sheer habit and maybe even laziness on my part).  

Honda could have really knocked it out of the "touring maxi-scooter" park with some things like a power adjustable windscreen, heated grips, cruise control (it has throttle by wire), a bigger cargo bay etc.  Like Mark, it's not enough of an advancement to move me off of my current Honda SWing even though the design and tech of my ride is almost 20 years old now.

Those 90 air valves almost convenced me to go out and buy this machine! I was also looking that the rider protection the faring was offering until he mentioned that they were for engine cooling. Not a good idea down here along the Mediterranean where it gets rather toasty most of the year.
