Honda Silver Wing ABS
This Honda Silver Wing means serious business. And it’s all thanks to a long list of luxury/comfort features, including full-coverage bodywork, a generous windscreen, and a large, comfortable seat with room for two. Plus it’s all powered by a strong, 582cc two-cylinder engine with liquid cooling and fuel injection, making the Silver Wing one heck of a ride.
Even more, the Silver Wing comes packed with a no-hassle V-Matic automatic transmission and our Anti-lock Brakes for extra confidence in unexpected conditions.
Let the long journey begin, with the Honda Silver Wing.
Made for the Weekend Escape
The Silver Wing is not only good looking, it’s also extremely useful. It’s designed with a huge 5.5-liter underseat storage space—enough to easily hold a full-face helmet. Plus the weather resistant seats are lockable, so you can bring your things and keep them secure.
Honda’s Programmed Fuel injection can be found in the Silver Wing. That means you can always count on easy startups - even in colder weather and at higher altitudes - without ever having to mess with a choke. And you get great mileage, allowing you to spend more time enjoying the day and less time filling up.
Stop on the Dot
Every Silver Wing comes with Honda’s Combined Braking System (CBS) to ensure that making a stop on your scooter is drama free. The 2012 Silver Wing also features anti-lock brakes – a huge benefit when things don’t go according to plan.
A scooter that is more than just a neighborhood scooter. The Silver Wing is built for both the long- and short-haul with its full-coverage bodywork and protective windscreen. Its comfortable wide seat and ample, on-board storage make the long way home quite appealing. Add its excellent fuel economy, plus Honda reliability and the Honda Silver Wing is a great plan b, when you want to leave your other vehicle at home.
Bodywork and Windscreen
The Silver Wing’s wind-tunnel-developed full-coverage bodywork and windscreen not only look good, but they offer a surprising degree of wind and weather protection—something you’ll really appreciate on long rides or on cold mornings.
Combined Braking System
This innovative system simplifies stopping with confidence. The front and rear brakes are linked in a unique fashion, so when you apply the front brake lever, two of the front three pistons are activated. Apply the rear brake lever and you get the other front brake piston along with the rear. Use both levers together and you get optimal stopping power.
Want to take a passenger along? No problem! The Silver Wing’s generous two-up seating capacity means he or she will be riding in the lap of luxury!
The Silver Wing offers 55 liters of lockable underseat storage. That’s plenty of room for a full-face helmet, or a bag of groceries. It also helps make the Silver Wing super practical for running errands, and makes packing for overnight trips a snap.
582cc Fuel Injected Engine
The Silver Wing’s 582cc parallel-twin engine means it has plenty of power for two-up riding. Because it uses fuel injection, you get no-hassle startups even in cold weather or at high altitudes.
Honda V-Matic Transmission
With the V-Matic Transmission, riding couldn’t be easier. Just start the engine, twist the gas, and go. The V-Matic means no shifting, ever.
The V-Matic is a continuously variable design, so you’ll never feel it lurch from one gear to another—you just get smooth power.
Anti-lock Braking System
ABS is simple: it helps you avoid unplanned skids, and helps take the drama out of stopping on less-than-perfect road surfaces. What’s amazing is how good it works, and the fact that you can get it on a scooter!
