Gold Wing

Goldwing

YEARS OF ADVENTURE

The first Gold Wing—the 1975 GL1000—was revolutionary. A motorcycle that offered superbike-level power, incredible smoothness, liquid cooling, shaft drive, and a host of technical innovations unmatched at the time in the motorcycling world. Riders across the globe recognised the genius in this machine, but especially riders who wanted to cover long distances even more so that’s why the Gold Wing became a touring icon. Over the years we added bodywork, saddlebags, and increased the engine size. Now it’s time to go back to our roots, to the kind of performance and handling that made those first Gold Wings such awesome bikes. Hang on, and enjoy the ride!

ENGINEERING 

AT THE HEART OF EVERY GREAT MOTORCYCLE BEATS A GREAT ENGINE.

The new 2018 Gold Wings still use a horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine, that the only similarity. The new bikes feature a new bore and stroke, and a displacement punched out to 1833cc. What’s even more important is that they’re the first Gold Wings to use four valves per cylinder, a design based on our high-performance Unicam® head design. The new engine also features aluminium cylinder sleeves and a shorter, stiffer crank. The engine is more compact front-to-back, and lets you and your passenger move forward in the cockpit for more comfort, better handling, and a more connected feel with the bike’s steering. Other innovations include integrating the starter and alternator into one unit. The overall effect is groundbreaking: a Gold Wing that’s still a long-distance champion, but one that offers a degree of more engaging, sporting performance that all motorcyclists live for.

7-SPEED AUTOMATIC DCT

THE BEST SPORTS CARS IN THE WORLD USE THEM, AND NOW THE BEST BIKES DO TOO.

For the first time ever, both the Gold Wing and the Gold Wing Tour are available with a brand new 7-Speed Automatic DCT. If you’re not familiar with it, think of the paddle-shift gearboxes Formula 1 cars use. DCT stands for Dual-Clutch Transmission. Inside, the transmission looks like a normal manual with strong, efficient, constant-mesh steel gears. But there’s no shift lever and no clutch lever—all your shifting is controlled by buttons on the handlebar. Or you can let the DCT function fully automatically, and the bike will upshift and downshift effortlessly. The twin clutch packs, one for odd gears, one for even, make shifting quick and seamless. The DCT has been a big hit in many Honda motorcycles, and our Africa Twin® has proven that it’s tough enough for fully loaded off-road travel. But the 2018 Gold Wings have the best DCT we’ve ever offered, and the first with seven speeds. Besides this, our DCT models offer a special low-speed “Walking” mode in addition to reverse. It’s a huge help when manoeuvring into or out of parking spaces with a passenger at the back.

APPLE CARPLAY INTEGRATION

A first for the motorcycle industry! Apple CarPlayTM seamlessly integrates your iPhone® with your new Gold Wing. That means you can use your iPhone to access Apple Maps, Apple Music® and other services. You’ll have access to weather, playlists and telephone numbers while aboard. Available Bluetooth®- enabled wireless headsets let you communicate easily.** And best of all, with more apps available every day, Apple CarPlayTM keeps your bike’s technology on the cutting edge.

METERS 

The new Gold Wing’s cockpit meters are information centric. In addition to the basics like vehicle and engine speed, fuel level, engine temperature and dual tripmeters, you can also monitor outside air temperature, cruise-control speed, heater levels, and more.

AUDIO

The new Gold Wing’s premium audio system is an excellent example of state-of-the-art electronic technology. In addition to listening to music, with an available Bluetooth headset you can make or answer phone calls without taking off your helmet. A dedicated port lets you plug in a USB flash drive too.

DOUBLE-WISHBONE FRONT SUSPENSION

One of the first things any rider will notice about the 2018 Gold Wings is the radical new double wishbone front suspension. Gone is the familiar telescopic fork, replaced with a strong, twin-leg structure, a pair of “A” arms and a single shock and spring. The innovative, Honda-engineered design changes the path the wheel follows through the suspension’s travel, making it more of a vertical movement. That lets us move both the engine and the rider/passenger.
