Six of the top ten selling scooters in the Australian are 50cc and the largest capacity figuring highly in the sales is a 125.

That hasn’t the Japanese manufacturers seemingly their efforts at the top end of town.

At one of the largest machines on the market is Silver Wing.

At over 11 on road it also hits the pretty hard but it is well and offers plenty of performance does help to justify the price tag. In the marketplace it head to head with Burgman 400 so in this review we help but compare one to the other.

A twin-cylinder engine is the Silver main point of difference as 400cc competitors offer a single lung. As such can’t offer the smooth revving nature of Honda’s injected mill.

Silky at all times the parallel twin up quickly and is powerful enough to sit on the speed limit quite It revs quite hard, power is delivered at 8000rpm and the par for the CVT transmission means that is always available.

Compared to the similar sized, but single Suzuki Burgman the Honda not prove a lot more powerful or efficient. But the Honda twin is a lot refined, and goes about its with a panache that is from single cylinder

There is plenty of storage on the Silver Wing but it can’t the cavernous Burgman 400 on that The Honda boasts 55 litres of storage to the Suzuki’s 62 litres. Up the Suzuki also boasts compartments.

That’s not surprising as dimensions aside the Silver certainly cuts a more figure than the somewhat proportions of the Burgman. The Honda more European. The Suzuki a 12 volt accessory outlet as

Both models now ABS and pull up very well. The does not have the massive bite of the Suzuki’s twin front end and does feel as if it take longer to stop. a back to back test verify that of course but I am confident the Suzuki would win the war.

A touring range of 300km is on either bike but that’s due to the larger 16 litre fuel on the Honda as it does use a little juice than the Suzuki. I to average 4.7 litres per 100km on the Wing over a long while trying to be fairly If riding aggressively however the can use more than 6 litres per

In comparison the Suzuki averages than 5 litres per 100km no how you ride it.

The Honda proves more at speed and in cross winds the Suzuki, and also feels spritely in the bends.

In the parking lot the has a smaller turning circle but it comes to actually parking up the wins hands down. The takes some serious to manoeuvre onto the centre-stand the Honda is easily lofted on to its perch.

When it comes to dollars and cents at $10,990 on roads the Honda is $1100 than the Suzuki. It does an extra cylinder, more styling and a backrest for the passenger to a defence in its favour. But really, the comes down to refinement.

That finesse is the main the Honda enjoys over the
