Not bad for a disposable Jap bike. What kind of power do the new Wings put out, anyone know?

same styling,but this has the upgraded windshield.

Edit:not to be taken the wrong way..but,those mirrors make it look like a hentai version of mickey mouse,surprised they aren't being sued by Disney,tm.

Not my cup of tea, but honestly, it looks better than the reg gold wing or a Vision.

I'd like to see one it person. Not to buy, but just to better judge it.

I don't mind the look. Better looking than Victory. I bet it rides smooth as hell. Don't care for the way the saddlebags open though. Seems annoying. Wonder if they'll come up with a quick detach tour pack system like Harley's.

Honestly... that's not a bad looking ride. I bet that's a smooth powerful SOB that'll run forever, too. Nice job, Honda!

Of course, I like my RG better, but I can give credit where credit's due.
