Honda Launches the Gold Wing Series with Improved Product Appeal and New Color Variations

Motorcycle & Industry

Honda will release the "Gold Wing" series, a large premium tourer equipped with a horizontally opposed 6-cylinder 1,833cc engine, the only one of its kind*1 in a motorcycle, on Thursday, February 25, 2020, on a made-to-order basis, with improved usability and comfort, a new color variation, and a transmission that is only available with the Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), which has been well received by users.

*1 According to Honda research, as of January 2021

The rear trunk capacity of the Gold Wing Tour has been increased from 50 liters to 61 liters, equivalent to two full-face helmets, to improve usability. In addition, the backrest of the passenger seat has been raised from 17 degrees to 24.5 degrees and raised by 30mm to improve passenger comfort.

In addition, LED fog lights, which were previously available as a factory-installed accessory, are now standard equipment, further enhancing the vehicle's strong presence and proportions. In addition, both the Gold Wing Tour and Gold Wing use 55W speakers. The pursuit of sound quality by changing the equalizer settings and optimizing the speed-sensitive automatic volume adjustment level has resulted in a realistic sound even while driving. Android Auto, which was available on previous models through a software update, is now standard on this model for improved convenience.

The Gold Wing Tour is available in three new colors: Candy Ardent Red (two-tone) for a luxurious feel and Gunmetal Black Metallic (two-tone) for a fearless look. The Gold Wing is available in one color, Matte Ballistic Black Metallic.
