A Green Wing.............................
As the Peak Oil phenomenon makes itself increasingly felt, I hope that Honda engineers are hard at work developing us a hybrid or diesel Wing. 35mpg in a two wheel mode is no longer tolerable......
I'm no Hippy, nor a Greenpeacie, or anything like that, but I've already curtailed my Wing travel some. I now have a 46-47 mpg Nighthawk for local and routine trips.
My next step down will be in the 500-400 cc range, and I've even give the Ninja 250 a looksee........
If I have to, I'll ride a moped to keep on riding, but I think it is within the capabilities of today's techs and engineers to keep the essense of the Goldwing and double it's mpg range!
