My official answer is…depends…
I have 2 ST1100s and the SWing. I use them all regularly- it didn’t take too much effort to get used the the (slight) handling differences in the SWing vs the larger bikes. I never feel like I’m going to lose the SWing in a turn, as with most bikes that feel very stable in a turn, it just becomes an extension of you. Don’t overthink this because it’s a non issue. I’m really happy I bought the SWing (was supposed to be my wife’s ride, then she bailed on the idea, so yay me!!!!).

If you are turning at slow speed the clutch will disengage and all two wheelers turn best under a little power. If this is what you are experiencing keep a little power on and modulate your speed using the back brake, pretty much as you would use the clutch with a manual bike or car.

Yeah and at least you cant stall the SWing, you just need to gas her a bit as you initiate a tight turn.
I can remember two silly offs on my big thumper BRP dirt bike when stalling mid turn (180 deg U) which led to me dropping the pig!
I do enjoy the SWing for being so practical in that respect, I think every home should have a SWing as it would sort the worlds traffic issues out........you meet the nicest people on a Honda
