Honda debuts in 2021 by presenting the Euro5 version of its legendary Gold Wing and Gold Wing 'Tour', the most famous luxury-tourers in the world.
The Gold Wing has been completely redesigned for the 2018 model year, becoming lighter, leaner and more agile, maintaining its greatest strength in the monumental 6 cc 1.833-cylinder boxer engine, entirely redesigned for the occasion and equipped with the fabulous DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) dual-clutch gearbox, but with 7 speeds and with 'Walking Mode' function for millimetric parking maneuvers.
For the 2021 the Gold Wing Tour improves in terms of load capacity with a larger trunk and in terms of passenger comfort with a more relaxed riding position. In addition, the saddle materials are new and the audio system has been upgraded. All this always and only with a single purpose: to confirm its leadership among the motorcycle luxury grand touring.
Model characteristics: the Honda GL1800 Gold Wing is powered by a monumental 6-cylinder boxer engine with 4-valve heads per cylinder and is equipped with Throttle By Wire, 4 Riding Modes, HSTC traction control (Honda Selectable Torque Control, only on Tour versions ), HSA (Hill Start Assist) for hill starts, Start & Stop (only on version with gearbox DCT), Cruise Control and satellite navigator with gyroscopic compass. The double beam aluminum frame is characterized by the suspension advanced steerer front with double wishbone and rear single-arm Pro-Arm. Suspension adjustment is integrated with the Riding Modes (Tour versions only). Standard features include the electric windscreen, the Smart ‑ Key and the 7 ”TFT screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The basic model is only available in the version with DCT gearbox. The 'Tour' model is available both in the version with 6-speed manual gearbox and electric reverse gear and in the top-of-the-range DCT-Airbag version with 7-speed dual clutch gearbox and 'Walking Mode' for parking maneuvers.
Model updates: for 2021, the load capacity of the 'Tour' model is improved thanks to a larger trunk (61 liters) and passenger comfort thanks to a more relaxed ergonomics of the backrest, while the seats feature new refined materials. The audio system has been upgraded for clearer sound. The basic model is available only in the version with double clutch gearbox DCT. The approval is Euro5.
