Yes these wings are awesome! Handle way better than something this size should. Very confidence inspiring. I can only imagine how much better they are 100# lighter!
Agreed. Taking off CC was unwise. Once the system is designed and implemented on a bike, it costs next to nothing to leave it there. Honda wanted to add distinctions b/n the Wing and the F6B, but this is a short-sighted way to do it.

Motorcycles built by committee instead of by actual motorcyclists?

Flat sixes have kind of a cool sound with aftermarket pipes on them. A buddy of mine had a Valk with and exhaust on it, thing sounded like a Porsche.

Another point for the Honda, their flat six engine will never wear out or require more than nominal service in this lifetime. It is a great powerplant for people who put serious miles on their bikes.

No Cruise, No ABS, No Buy. What was Honda thinking? Do they hate CC that much? Even the ST doesn't have it. Big oversight on both bikes.
