We must sadly sell this beautiful 2004 Honda Silver Wing scooter, in Candy Dark Burgundy, to make room in our garage and to help ease the pinch in our checkbook. Approx 13,200 well-cared-for miles. Always adult-driven and garage-kept in all seasons: No rust or fading. Price: $4,995.00
Valentine radar detector shown in one picture is not included.
I sold my 2005 1800cc Gold Wing to buy this 600cc scooter, and never looked back. The Silver Wing is twice the fun on 1/3 the engine. The step-through design and multiple seating positions completely cured my back and knee pain while riding. It is simply amazing.
This bike has NEVER been down, not even a parking lot tipover. The body and paint condition are in 8 out of 10 condition, even including the expected blemishes from usage and garage bumps.
All controls, including levers for both front and rear disc brakes, are on the handlebars. Fully automatic "twist-n-go" transmission and electric starting will make this bike your favorite ride. Here's a link to an independent road test of a Honda Silver Wing. You too will wonder how Honda can hide so much fun in such an unlikely package.
Consistent 48 miles per gallon will help you deal with the $4 per gallon gasoline that is on the way this summer. You deserve some fun at the pump! Perfect for your son or daughter to drive to work this summer and then to college next fall.
Spacious tank bag (see photos further below) and huge lighted storage bin under the seat are wonderful for both light shopping and long highway tours. Two covered fairing pockets keep sunglasses and other necessities close at hand.
Engine and transmission perform flawlessly, and oil and filter have always been changed at early intervals. Switches, lamps, and all controls are all working as designed. Owners manual and original toolkit are both included.
The 600cc twin cylinder, DOHC, fuel injected engine can quickly get way ahead of the stoplight traffic - being out front is a much safer place to ride. Twin internal balance shafts make engine vibration almost imperceptible.
This bike has a true motorcycle-type swingarm rear suspension. Unlike smaller scooters, where the entire engine bobs up and down with the rear wheel, the Silver Wing engine is frame-mounted and therefore protected from all road shocks. The rear swingarm design therefore greatly reduces unsprung weight (that of the engine). This allows the adjustable rear shocks to provide highly controlled compliance of the rear wheel for excellent handling and greater safety. The net result is a very smooth and stable ride even at the highest speeds.
Cruise any interstate 2-up at an easy 75 mph (even uphill) with a top speed of over 100 mph. What a surprise for the bad boys on their "cruisers" when you easily blast ahead of them. Few bikes and still fewer cars can pull ahead of this Silver Wing in a stoplight drag. Pass Porsches at 80mph... such a look they give you. You will never stop grinning...
Here is a link to pictures of the fun exploits I have had on this Silver Wing. It's like a carnival on wheels!
Special features and accessories included with this bike:
Custom "DJ Tank Bag" for even greater storage. Huge central cavity (plus four large side pockets - including one labeled 'Emergency Info') can hold a gallon of milk and a lot more. Scotchbrite strip gives standout safety at night. A Brake-Away Throttle Lock, the best there is, is installed for relaxed cruising. The clever design instantly disengages the throttle lock when the front brake lever is pulled. HyperPro Progressive Fork Springs give handling similar to a sport-bike at high speed, and a well-controlled (but still comfortable) ride in town even with a passenger on board. 24gm Malossi rollers in the automatic transmission give sparkling acceleration without any loss of top speed and maintain 48 mpg fuel economy. The original Honda 28gm weights are included to easily go back to stock if ever desired. K&N Air filter lets the engine breathe deep, improving both performance and fuel economy. Givi taller and wider windshield, in near-perfect condition, is installed as pictured. This gives one the ultimate in cold and wet weather protection. A stock windshield in near-perfect condition is also included in this auction, and gives a sportier look and maximum fuel economy. If requested I will install the stock windshield for the winning bidder at no charge. Less than 3,000 miles on NGK Platinum spark plugs PLUS two new-in-box NGK Platinum spark plugs are included in the auction. Less than 50 miles on new front fork seals. Less than 50 miles on new front tire. Less than 3,100 miles on rear tire. Givi Top Box MonoKey mounting platform is installed. Optional E92 electrical (brake light) socket is included and installed on the platform. Fits any Givi "MonoKey" model Top Box. Givi top box is not included, but add one of your own and you're really ready to tour North America this summer!
The right-side fairing-pocket push latch and spring self-destructed some time ago, but the pocket cover still opens and closes OK manually. Note: The locking left side pocket cover opens, closes, and locks perfectly.
