About the 2018-2020 Honda Gold Wing

The Gold Wing is a Honda motorcycle that has completely dominated the touring bike world for decades. It’s a fantastic bike for tours. Apart from the new model year’s remote adjustable preload on the rear suspension for even greater long-distance comfort, the chassis remains pretty much the same.

Remote adjustable preload on the rear suspension for even greater long-distance comfort, the chassis remains pretty much the same. The symbol of motorcycle touring is now even safer because it get C-ABS and airbags.

With a very comfortable seat positioned just 29.1 inches from the ground and an infinite number of goodies such as a CD-player, integrated navigation system, and multi-function display, just to name a few, the Honda Gold Wing is synonymous to open road cruising in complete luxury and relaxation.

The same 1832cc, liquid-cooled, six-cylinder Boxer engine with single cams and two valves per cylinder. As much as we’d expect more from Honda, we also have to admit that ever since this engine powers this two-wheeled limousine.

It features Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system and develops 118 hp at 5500 rpm and 167 Nm at 4000 rpm. Also, the Gold Wing engine is coupled to the same five-speed gearbox with overdrive and electric reverse, and power is still sent to the rear wheel through a shaft final drive.
