You better get a bigger bike, to have more comfort, maybe the Honda X-ADV

Tried the Forza. Very comfy but underpowered to travel around Thailand. Just bought the NC750X DCT. Awesome bike.

I don't think 350 is coming any time soon..., maybe next year,.... and I remember when new model came in 2017/18, the old Forza held its value for a good year or two, before many used new models showed up on market for sale...

 

But I see your dilemma... ! Although you already have so many bikes, why bother....

It's already listed on Honda's website, so it's probably just a matter of a few weeks until they are available.

You are right, they are accepting orders at the bike motor show , so who knows, maybe comong soon... 

 

I'm amazed they kept quiet about it so long and then suddenly manufactured and now selling it...!!!

Still nothing about HP but apparently there will be a touring model with top box.

 

Lets hope Yamaha will follow up and make a similar sized engine.

Yamaha has Xmax 400, but does not sell it in Thailand for some reason..., they just need to unleash that here and that would put a big damper on this Forza 350 parade, which is in reality a 330cc engine...!

Yep the old 300 was not 300 and now the 350 is not 350. Not sure what it is with scooter manufacturers and model names.

When i first heard about this I thought not 350 probably 327 and I was out by 2cc!

Need the translator but more details about Forza 350. No power or torque numbers from Honda yet though...! 🤔

 

I like the 5 clutch shoes instead of 3, I think they finally acknowledged there is a problem there with such a heavy bike and the whole design, my old model Forza always suffer with a bit of clutch judder and vibration ...

 

Also the new air filter intake pointed to the back, but someone mentioned water and dust can get in there, specially water jets they use to clean bikes here. He opened and found a small hole at the bottom to let water out,  but still, strange place and so exposed, that box need more regular opening and cleaning, but get more air in and easier I guess...

 

And hydrolic timing chain tensioner that works with engine oil pressure, Honda first in Thailand...! High tech...🤗. Hope it is maintenance free and lasts,  any ideas...?

About to step from PCX to manual for touring Thailand. I am looking at the NC750X DCT but was leaning towards the CB500X. Since I will be new to big bikes, I was thinking CB would be good start. But the NC750X DCT looks great. 

 

Do think the NC750x is a solid starter bike as well? No problem with traffic or anything or manual transmission, just don't know much about size, weight and such. Tomorrow I am actually renting a CB500x to see how I like it.

I didn’t ride the CB500X but I have spoken with a few mates who have. Their main comment was that you would very soon be ready to upgrade to something else.

jumping straight into the NC750X was a good choice for me. Great in the twisties and awesome around town. 

weight is not so much of an issue once you get used to the real motorbike feel, i.e. feet resting on pegs and a different stance.

However, you might want to get a run around for town errands etc. and keep the NC for touring and weekend runs.

The DCT makesit ridiculously easy to ride.

Best of luck with whatever you decide
