Fact: Honda still has 2013 SilverWings in crates. Also I heard there are 2012's, too, US.

Now if they would lower the price to the $4000 range---about high used value of a 2013---to get rid of them, even I would be interested in another one, but I do not like black---not safe color.

Five/six years in crate one would have to think about replacing tires, new/leftover comes with warranty.

Suppose this is only dreaming. I tend to buy only new/love to ride under warranty. Based on past riding, would take 2 yrs or so to get to the 50,000 miles I trade at.

I paid $5000 2 1/2 years ago. 4K most likely sold at a loss. That dealer does not have any advertised anymore. Best price I've seen was $4800 over the winter but price goes up in summer.

Even at 5k still a good deal. New 13 1 mile. Pushing 13k at start of 3rd summer I'm only a weekend rider. Time for a belt soon.

Wow, $5000 is £3800 at todays rates


I'd gladly pay that for a 2013 out of the box


Just paid £3500 for a 2010 with 8000 miles on it last month

I have seen a couple of 2013's new in the Phoenix area for in the 5K range. I was tempted, but then thought my 2012 is identical and set up the way I want it and I only have 22K on it. If something happened to mine I would definitely look for a NOS Wing and failing that would get a Burgie 400.

I have no idea if there's any new unregistered Silver Wings here in the UK, but if l was interested in another Honda I'd trade mine in for the soon to be released 2018 Forza 300.

Full LED lights, height adjustable electric screen, keyless ignition, traction control, and at least 40kg lighter than my Silver Wing. It's also 100% better looking than the battered with the ugly stick previous Forza.

Forza was sales flop in US. I see leftover Forza at my local dealer.

Once I test rode one----they were not bad, little rough in the suspension.

If new model comes here, I too would be interested, right price/air management.
