Ahhh...but you get your choice of colors. Just like the Model T. Smile

What amazes me, is that if Honda is putting out a different model in Europe, how they can afford to keep two lines open for the part differences. You would think they would go with the same model worldwide, just because it would be cheaper.

BTW, I like the color.

Damn, it's the same as my '11. it would make more sense to have the same model worldwide but since when has that stopped anyone?

Fine with me, as long as wheels are silver(not black), center stand and simple key.

US market isn't large enough for Honda to invest a lot in changes.....and bike business here is kind of dead.

But why change something that works? Weak dollar doesn't help price point.

I am buying another new scooter in Feb/Mar 2012, my NT700V will be a year old then and time to go. Black not safest color.

I wonder if having the same bike this year has anything to do with U.S. emission requirements? But aren't the European standards stricter than the U.S? Either way, it effin sucks, 1 more year of waiting for improvements!

Maybe, by keeping the S/Wing the same, more people will consider buying a new Integra when they come out.

Vinyl-Wrap seems to be the rage in the UK - it's not cheap but doesn't involve respraying.

The color is another reason I opted to buy a left over 2007

From the forum, I've seen that they used to be made in blue and red besides the grayish silver of my wing.
Is it the same story in Europe or do you also get "any color as long as it's black" ?

It's almost humorous... I rest my case from a different thread. I guess I've got too much time on my hands. I promise I won't bother anyone on this subject anymore.

Before I bought my 2011 Silverwing, I asked if the USA would get the ST600 this year,he's still laughing!

Well, if you don't need the small wheels and step through mounting, I found a Yamaha with a Semi Automatic transmission: Yamaha Fjr1300ae and Honda is coming out with: NC700X http://powersports.honda.com/2012/nc700x/specifications.aspx

You have to swing your leg over but the NC700X has storage between your legs. Hmmm.... Anway, I plan to look at that carefully as it promises to be an adventure bike with an automatic tranny option, which is one of the main attractions of a scooter to me.

Right, the automatics sure makes it fun riding again. And Honda makes it dependable.
