Cigarette lighter inoperable? You're kidding? WOW, most wouldn't be concerned in smoking a cigarette while riding a motorcycle.

In general, the cigarette lighter would be used as a socket for add-on 12V lighting, a GPS, or charging a cell phone. While it would be POSSIBLE to smoke in the 'Wing's "pocket", it would mean riding one-handed for extended periods -- not advisable, although the 'Wing does stay stable even on moderately rough roads.
