Just picked up a 2007 Silverwing here in Pittsburgh off of craigslist. 10900 miles for $2250.

A little about me, I'm retired now after closing my scooter dealership here in Pittsburgh in 2014. We featured SYM as well as CFMOTO and the Chinese
scooter-de-jour. We also sold dirt bikes and smaller atv's.

I've owned and ridden just about everything out there scooter-wise, and I must say I'm very impressed with the Silverwing. Buy, hey, it's a Honda, so how bad can it be.

Hi cookkees and Welcome to the BEST SWing site on the net. There's lots of info here with people ready and willing to help.
I have an 08 SWing that I had triked out a couple of years ago and have no regrets.

Welcome from o-HI-o cookkees, having had a dealership should let you compare rather well.

Welcome aboard this board Cookkees.

The question isn't "it's a Honda, so how bad can it be".  The real question is "it's a Honda, so how good can it be".  And the answer is:  Very Good ... as you will experience for yourself.   Wink

I look forward to your compare and contrast experiences with other scooter brands and models etc.

Hi cookkees,

Welcome aboard.

A 2007 SW with only 10,900 sounds like a great deal.

ABS or no ABS?

Welcome to the site. I'm on my second 04 Silver Wing and love them. As all around transportation they were ahead of there time. Big fan of BMW and Honda's. Your insight on other scooter brands will be invaluable. There are two great scooter rides coming up in September, Arkansas.

This is my first experience with a Silverwing. I took in a couple of 400 Burgmans on trade over the years. Also picked some up from the local Harley dealer. They would always call me when they took one in on trade. However most of my sales were in the 150-250 cc models.
