The thing I like best about my silverwing is that it does everything well. It is fast, comfortable & great for a commute to work or across the country. I have owned loys of motorcycles & this one is my favorite. It is so easy to handle, versatile & a blast to ride The ABS breas are smooth & really shut you down in a hurry. I know they have saved me from hitting a deer more than once.
It feels a bit heavy off the center stand & sees hard to control. I always feel I could loose control of it when I take it off the center stand. Also the seat height is a little high for shorter riders. The passenger cathes a lot of wind as the rear seat is quite high.
I put about 7000 miles on my Honda Silverwing a year. I love the machines versatility. It just does everything well & is a gret commuter & errand runner. The machine is very reliable. It fires up with one push of the starter even after sitting all winter long every year. I believe it is the standard that all scooters are measured by. I would like to see it offered in more colors & with more options. Bergman offers much more optional trim & goodies like headed hand grips & hand shield to name a few. After riding nearly 30000 miles I can give this bike my highest recommendation.
