Equipped with various features, Honda Silverwing FJS400D is the first 400cc motorcycle to carry a two cylinder engine model. Having a peak power of 38 bhp @ 8000 and a generous torque of 37 nm @ 6500, riding on city streets is manageable. It has improved power delivery and responsive engine for excellent riding performance. Design and appearance is well-maintained that only a careful eye can differentiate between Silverwing 400 and its sibling Silverwing 600: from the rims color and handlebars pass an impressive all black finish. Another difference but should quickly disappear is the braking system: Silverwing 400 is equipped with the CBS combined braking system, it does not have ABS yet. Bodywork is excellent. Its under-seat storage is spacious and those two pockets on its front side just below the handlebar are deep and lockable left. Silverwing 400 has the same suspension, brakes and fairing built similarly with the 600. Looking at them all at once is a bit confusing sometimes because they look completely the same. Honda Silverwing FJS400D offers unmatched comfortability which is characterized by reasonable seat height, cutouts in the floor to allow the feet on the ground, quite wide handlebar, complete instrumentation, anti-theft pockets and soft seats with adjustable backrest.

Honda Silverwing FJS400D Review
Taking Honda Silverwing FJS400D for a Ride.
Swung a leg over the Silverwing 400 and we immediately feel the power of its twin engine. Riding in the highway, its totally quiet with no vibrations felt. Exhaust double output released smooth pleasant sound especially when revving at high speed. It sounds good because there are only three other scooters equipped with an engine of this type. We had a great start the Silverwing accelerates gently but effectively until reaching 85 km/h. Then, the push is more generous if we continue to accelerate, pure delight is what we feel as we ride the Silverwing to its limit. Riding on the city, Silverwing FJS400D readily came out, it surprisingly delivered nice performance and maneuverability. On the road, we must not forget that this Honda is not a sporty motorcycle, but a great tourer. It rolls faster and stays in the course and able to pass curves smoothly. In both city and highway driving, the cruising speed of this Honda scooter made it perfectly safe to ride. It has no ABS braking system yet but it has the combined brake CBS, which aids for a controllable stopping power. As for riding position, Honda Silverwing FJS400D offers comfortable and relaxed stance; handling is pleasant and firm. Protection from the windscreen, is much appreciated. Passenger seat is installed at reasonable position with foldaway handles and footrest. Ergonomics and built is nothing to complain about, its definitely among the best maxi scooter. We will give it a 5 out of 5 rating.
