A great bike

Replaced rear wheel under warranty because of pitted rust damage. A common fault I understand.

The Silver Wing is an ideal touring bike. It is comfortable and you have excellent weather protection. Fuel consumption is around 50 miles to a UK gallon.

It has impressive acceleration and has confident handling. It is well built and starts first time every time.

Summary:

Wouldn't trade it for anything

Faults:

Nothing wrong with it at this time. Still a new bike and breaking it in.

General Comments:

Silver Wing 600 is quick on the acceleration since it is an automatic transmission and shifting is not involved. Don't even feel it change gears at all.

Back rest could be higher for the driver. Sits too low on my back.

You don't feel it changing gears, because unlike a traditional gear box, it does not have any gears. A scooter changes "gears" by using a device called a variator.
