Many of the Automotive Manufacturers do that, they offer both a Small and Large Version of some of the SUV's....I think HONDA might find that as a HIT.
It's been done twice the 'Baby' Goldwing. The Pacific Coast 800 was the last one. The Silver Wing 500 & 650 the first ones.

I have looked at the DN-01 with some interest. I believe Honda is testing the automatic on a smaller engine with an eye to the rummerd automatic Goldwing. The layout is a great idea. A sport bike with western style seating. Never did like the "Euro" seating as on a crotch rocket.

My first bike that I would consider close to a Goldwing was a black 1977 CB750 fully dressed with windjammer fairing and hard bags and trunk, man I loved that bike it was the first Honda I ever owned with a drive shaft instead of a chain and the wife loved riding with out getting chain oil on her white jean pant legs. Four cyl, four pipes and very quiet to ride and listen to the radio. Brings back fond memories! Robert

well robert your memory is fading where the '75 750 is concerned because all single ohevr head cam 750's ( '69 - '78 ) were chain drive. the shadow 750 and nighthawk 700s were the first hondas in that displacement to have shaft drive

Well William don't know about the cold north but my first 750 was chain drive, 1973 CB750, traded it back to Honda of Marietta for the 1977 CB 750 and it did have a shaft drive, I traded my 350 in on my first 750 and when I started riding a GW it was a 1000 then an 1100, moved on to my 1200 ASPY. and then my 1988 phantom gray 1500, sold it and bought my 1500 1988 model trike. Since my first 750 trade they all have had shaft drive. Don't know what to say other than that.

I know this is a really late post to this thread, but check around. I am quite sure I road a 1973 CB 750 with automatic shift; a two-speed. Not shaft drive.

I had a '76 750 Hondamatic. It was a two speed automatic, chain drive. They also made the Hondamatic in the 450 size.



I'd like to find a nice, clean Silverwing for Mama to ride...something she could handle that ain't too heavy.
