I just spent some time with a rep from Honda Cananda and had the chance to discuss the 'new' Wing model. He has some seat time on one and I just had to ask about the mentioned upgrade to the front suspension. While Honda says there is some internal changes in the fork, there is apparently nothing more than a change in one or two bushings. The rep told me that he is all but certain there is little or no handling improvement due to this minor change, and that the better ride and handling is almost certainly due to the new bike being shod with Bridgstone tires. That has been mentioned by other folks, maybe even in this forum.
Anyhoo, I'm hoping to get a first hand look at the new bike this coming week at another dealership (Honda won't let me have one boohoo), and if my wishes come true, maybe even a quick ride on it. Badrider (I think) snagged one a week or so back but I can't recall if he said anything good or bad about it. We'll see.
