After having ridden my MaxSym400 for a few thousand K's now I cannot help but compare the handling of the Two . Most disconcerting is the little skip/twitch that the Wing gives when traversing the little ridges in the road parallel to direction of travel -"tram-lining" as I call it . Tyres are standard Hoops at the correct pressure with plenty of tread and I cannot detect play in either wheel assay. Just a Wing quirk perhaps ? Also , I was surprised by the fact that there is only one disc on the front but that has not turned out to be a concern as the braking is very good. In an ideal world it would be nice to have that lovely smooth Honda engine in the MaxSym frame . Oh ,well…………………..

If anyone would like to make their SWing more motorcycle-like in handling, then just install the Hyperpro front springs. I did this and I would consider this the 2nd best mod, after the Givi air flow windshield. I could never go back to the stock springs in the SWing. I don't feel the little ridges or roads anymore really.
