A new SilverWing?
The following is a Google translation from a post on the French website http://www.scooter-station.com:
It is now an open secret: Honda should introduce a new Maxiscooter in Milan. But which one? Anti T-Max, as the Griffon concept presented in Tokyo in 2003? A SW-T 600 hi-tech? Or a brand new vehicle, combining the style of the GT-sport VFR 1200 F étrennées technological solutions on the DN-01?
Scooter-Station enlighten you.
We can not say that journalists jostled on the Honda stand the last exhibition in Cologne. It is understood elsewhere: no new motorcycle or scooter was presented at Intermot. Honda reserves in effect for Milan, where the manufacturer will unveil 8 models in brief. In any case, that hammer the latest press release of the brand winged. On our favorite segment, where the speed is king, we know that Honda will introduce, among others, a new Maxiscooter for the European market.
There is little chance that the craft resembles the very conceptual Griffon as we had been presented at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2003. However, to truly undermine the hegemonic Yamaha TMAX on its own ground, Max could take the features of the scooter we had imagined last year. (Read the article about the Honda TMAX killer here)
At the time, we imagined in effect until the VFR 1200 F, the same style grand touring sport could be of interest to users looking for a scooter that is both comfortable and stylish. To do this, the newcomer would have an aluminum frame, cast as the TMAX. To make it rigorous enough to face all the curves in style, it should also be equipped with an engine in central position, large diameter wheels, a final drive and a separate mono-shock.
Several elements of transmission should also be inspired solutions used on the DN-01. The product we looked attractive, the style that we had also imagined, but a problem of costs remains, and even more so in these times when there is no good out revolutionary products. therefore expensive. The market down, is clearly not yet ready for such innovation.
A SW-T 600 at the forefront of technology
So, we think it will be more like a SW-T 600, which we redesigned to be presented in Italy. We believe that the scooter will have a more advanced technology than the current 600 Silverwing GTactuellement distributed in Japan. Given the success encountered by the PCX, why not graft the system at Stop and Go Maxiscooter range? And to better utilize the power of its twin 600 cm3 for the less efficient, this machine could recycle the transmission of robotic DN-01.
It would become a huge Forza (the luxurious scooter 250 cm3, which is no longer in the catalog of the mark). Thus equipped, the Japanese have finally Maxiscooter GT cards to impress, and why not take ascendancy over its competitors, Yamaha head. This scooter will be there day in Milan? The denouement is imminent, so stay tuned!
