After many motorcycles, two Burgmans, this 2007 SW is my second. What I like about it is the smooth effortless power delivery, comfy ride and Honda reliability and build quality. Twice a week I commute a 160mile journey mostly on motorways and mostly and an indicated 80mph. The SW just eats up the miles without fuss or bother and I get off at the other end of my journey feeling still able to move my back and limbs!
I also like the instrument layout, general styling and the storage capacity. Less happy about Honda stealership servicing costs and a relatively poor fuel consumption of a shade over 50mpg. A lot of people complain about the weight of the bike - yes its heavy but you only notice this at parking speeds or when putting it on the center stand, and even then its an acceptable price to pay given the motorway wind resistance advantages and bump absorbtion the extra body weight offers.
Nothing has gone wrong or has worked loose in 30k miles (only routine servicing activities).
All in all an excellent machine. I'm very happy with it.
