A Guide to
The Honda Gold Wing® is designed to deliver to you the essential experience of touring. A name recognized by the riders across the globe for the genius in this machine, especially the ones who want to cover long distances, it has become a global touring icon. Over the years, it has evolved to become lighter, faster, more powerful and engaging.
The first Gold Wing — The 1975 GL1000 was revolutionary and changing a bike as good and as refined isn’t something you take lightly. The newest model in every aspect continues the ethos of Goldwing forward by ensuring exemplary specs : be it engineering, handling, technology, comfort or performance.
ENGINEERED TO THE CORE
At the heart of every great motorcycle beats a great engine. While the long-distance champion features the Revered horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine, it features a new bore and stroke and a displacement punched out to 1833 cc. The engine uses 4 valves per cylinder - a design based on our high-performance Unicam® head design. In addition to this, it is equipped with aluminum cylinder sleeves and a shorter, stiffer crank to enable more engaging, sporting performance that all motorcyclists live for.
7-SPEED AUTOMATIC DCT
For the first time ever, the new Gold Wing is available with a brand new 7-Speed Automatic DCT. There’s no shift lever and no clutch lever. All your shifting is controlled by buttons on the handlebar. The twin clutch packs - one for odd gears and the other for the even ones, makes shifting quick and seamless. To add to that, the DCT model offers a special low-speed “walking” feature in addition to reverse that makes for an effortless maneuvering in parking spaces, especially with a pillion.
Now Android AutoTM is integrated with the current model Gold Wing. Customers with AndroidTM smartphones will be able to enjoy application services seamlessly such as music, phone calls and messaging.
The new Gold Wing keeps you updated with an informative Meter in its cockpit. It’s a dual-trip meter with all the basics a rider needs like - vehicle and engine speed, fuel-level, engine temperature and dual-trip meters, air-temperature, cruise-control speed, and more.
PREMIUM AUDIO SYSTEM
The premium Audio System of the new Gold Wing is an excellent example of state-of-the-art electronic technology. In addition to listening to music, you can also plug-in a USB flash drive with a dedicated port. Using the Bluetooth headset, you can dial or receive calls on your smartphone, without taking your helmet.
