From this angle, at least, they do look like Samsonites ...lol

Looks to have been designed by the same Honda team that did up the new and ugly Civic with all its weird shapes, angles and contours. Makes our Vics look all the more beautiful.

What I don't care for about our older wing is that the wide, long motor puts your feet directly under you once seated on the bike and they are pretty much locked in place by design. This makes it impossible to shift your feet around to increase comfort while riding. My wife uses a 4" pad on the seat to keep here knees from contacting the lower fairing because she has long legs. Even with shorter legs I don't find the position comfortable for more than a couple of hours of riding between stops. Don't know if they were able to address the seating position issues on this new version. It doesn't seem to be something that can be fixed with an engine that wide and long and a seat height that is low enough to make managing a heavy touring bike practical.

I absolutely am in love with the engineering though. Toughest motorcycle I have ever owned bar none and I can still buy most wear parts from the factory even though it is 26 yrs old. Lot to be said for that.
That one looks far better than ours does. Their styling has come a long way.

Does that have a conventional front fork or something else?

The riders pegs seem to still be in that "hole" behind the heads... If you look at the linked article, you'll see a drawing of some type of cantilevered suspension.
