My friend Ken has this Honda Silver Wing motor scooter which I have tried. It is black and a very very sharp looking motor scooter. The price of about 8, 000.00 dollars is a good value when you consider the obvious quality that this motor scooter apparently has. The quality of workmanship speaks in volumes and Ken says its one of the best motor scooters he has ever had in his life. It was purchased at a Honda dealer here in Manchester, Ct. They have a nice selection of scooters and cars but the guys that work on the motor scooters need some additional training as they changed the antifreeze and oil on his previous scooter and he had to bring it back because it was leaking the antifreeze and oil as well. This resulted in engine damage. Hence the Honda products are good but the service at the dealer I cannot give a good rating to unfortunately. He is keeping an eye out for a good motor scooter mechanic or shop. The scooter does have a nice storage compartment that locks. He is able to fit drinks in it as well as his helmet. The scooter is comfortable on long distance trips and has lots of power. Truly there is nothing like a nice scooter to save money and have fun with.
