Honda welcomes 2021 with news of updates to its seminal touring flagship, the GL1800 Gold Wing.
The Gold Wing was redrawn from the ground up for 2018, becoming much lighter, sleeker and more agile, while still benefitting from the avalanche of torque provided by a monumental flat six-cylinder 1800cc engine, and adding a host of new features to cement its reputation as a technological flagship, including the option of 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission.
For 2021 both the Gold Wing and Gold Wing ‘Tour’ receive upgrades to audio and speaker quality. The Gold Wing now comes in a contemporary new Pearl Deep Mud Grey colour scheme, with orange accents on the front fender, engine cover, headlight surround, fuel tank and rear section.
From the more traditional touring direction, the Gold Wing ‘Tour’ has enhanced long distance practicality and comfort. Top box capacity is increased to 61 litres, enough for two large full-face helmets, and it now features a luxurious suede/synthetic leather seat cover and a more relaxed angle for the pillion back rest. The Gold Wing ‘Tour’ will be available in two colour options: a stealthy Gunmetal Black Metallic and majestic Candy Ardent Red.
The two versions of the Gold Wings each project a distinctive aura of their own; each are the perfect choice for the modern rider who wants a technological and performance tour de force with understated, yet unmistakeable, presence.
