2011 Silver Wing

For 2011, Honda re-releases it’s popular Silver Wing scooter, a machine packed with a fuel-injected, four-stroke 582cc twin. This Honda scooter offers a high-level of performance along with easy operation, and comes with ABS for 2011.

This combination “can take adventuresome riders as far as the open road beckons.”  This is just what the Silver Wing will do, on a very economically level. The Silver Wing uses Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection for minimal gas consumption; the FI system also means no-hassle startups even in cold weather or at high altitudes without ever having to mess with a choke

The scooter features aerodynamic bodywork, windscreen and a large comfortable seat for two-up riding. And it’s loaded with high-tech features like the sophisticated Honda V-Matic belt-drive system, so there’s no manual shifting, and ABS.
