Is this the Silver Wing painted in Team Repsol Honda colours by the owner of a San Diego graphics shop as a tribute to the late Moto GP World Champion and Team Repsol Honda rider Nicky Hayden.

Sorry, I can't answer that. The captions where I found the photo had Vietnamese text. But the palm trees and the blue signs do hint at a Southern California location.

At first glance, it looks like some sort of crotch rocket, till you see the seat on the back...

If you Search 'Repsol' on here, there's a post where someone mentions this Team Repsol Honda painted Silver Wing. As I mentioned earlier it was a tribute to Nicky Hayden.

Not after his tragic death after a cycling collision with a car in 2017, but much earlier after 'The Kentucky Kid' became Moto GP World Champion in 2006. It also has Nicky's "69" race number painted on the rear panel.

Nice paint job, but a bit too garish for the average old bloke Silver Wing owner. As a fully paid up old git myself, it's way too bling and in your face for me.

I'd also hate to ride any maxi scooter without a screen or a main stand. The painted up tunnel would soon be marked by my boots clambering on and off it, and it makes using a tunnel bag impractical too.

I think the Repsol paint job looks really cool. If I had another SW to ride solo I wouldn't mind that sort of thing. I reckon most people would see it and think, 'what the f*** is that.

Keep 'em guessing?

That does look nice but I'll bet the paint job is worth a few bucks more than my SWing.

My reaction to the picture was just the same as the others. Took a second look to realize it was a Silverwing in disguise. If we want to be visible in traffic ... I bet a paint job like this may take care of that.

Nice spot Bern,
only up the road from  me but sadly it's not as eye catching as the one in the forum header (If your going to bling it,do it right) & enlarging the pictures the rest of the machine doesnt look as loved as the pseudo custom transfer effort

Wow! I love that Silverwing's super cool paint job! cheers
I had to look twice to realize it was indeed a Silverwing. I have to show this picture to a friend of mine who has a SW that could use new paint. thumbs up
