Beautiful Looking Bike.
I would definitely at least try it on for size.

Another concept bike, the Elysium (I hope I spelled that right) would appeal to me.

Lack of weather protection doesn't seem to bother Adventure Bike riders, nor lack of centre stand the Cruiser and Race Replica/Sports Bike enthusiasts (though wet weather riding seems to be another matter for them). Even bikes fitted with a centre stand a lot of owners prefer just to use the side stand.

As for open chain, there's far more motorcycles on the road using chain drive than with shaft dive and belt drive. It's no longer the hassle it once and submerging your chain in a tin of melted grease is a thing of the past. Aerosol chain lube doesn't fling off like it like it once used to, and there's good vacuum chain oilers you can fit and adjust the flow for wet or dry riding.

The Integra was slated for it's open chain when it came out a couple of years ago, now there's a few owners of the 700 and 750 models on the Muppets forum and the open chain hasn't been mentioned.

Unfortunately to me Vultus sounds somewhat like a disease or something vulgar. Either there's a whole lot of rake on those forks or some odd handlebars. I'm not sure what Honda's trying to do of late the new GW doesn't do it for me anymore then the Honda F6B which to me is just another stab at the Rune which didn't go over very well either. I like some of the new 700 series of Honda's but they really ought to get their stylists off the sauce.

It classified on my local dealer website as a "touring " bike.
It only has a three gallon capacity tank. For that kind of money, I'd go with the retro CB1100 especially the 2014 deluxe version with ABS and 4.5 gallon tank to go with the wonderful inline four engine. It's also about the same weight as a Silverwing

yea, but with 80 MPG, it can go 240 miles. A lot more than the 4 gal Swing. I still prefer my Swing.
