Folks that don't own these scoots will never recognize them for what they are. I traded my NT700v for my '12 Silverwing. It's my third Silverwing. Kept trading for a motorcycle. Now I'm done. The Swing does everything better IMO. Jeepers, I was supposed to remove the seat (which means the left pannier has to be opened to access the latch), and then use a cable to lock my helmet with the NT. Then put the seat back on and close the pannier. Really? I can put it under the seat or use the simple and dandy helmet hook under the seat of the Swing. Drawbacks? Yep, these scooters are not really set up for side panniers. They can be fitted but there is no aftermarket stuff for these in quantity. What I really want is a more powerful machine. Not a lot, but some more. So I will trade the Swing when Honda rolls out the Forza 900.
