Enhanced styling and performance for 2012 Gold Wing

Enhanced styling and performance for 2012 Gold Wing

The latest evolution of the Honda Gold Wing will hit Europe at the end of 2011. Several updates have refined the luxury tourer even further, confirming its status as the most advanced and fully-featured touring machine. As well as more dynamic styling and enhanced stability, Honda has added greater luggage capacity and new audio and navigation systems to the unique machine whose history stretches back to 1975. 

Main features:

More dynamic exterior styling NEW 

As befits the Gold Wing’s status as an aerodynamically refined touring powerhouse, the new model has revised exterior styling. Bold, integrated lines better link the front and rear of the machine, communicating its elegance and performance with sharp, dynamic forms. The re-shaped rear light further adds to the distinctive new look.

 

Improved wind protection NEW 

Months of both wind tunnel tests and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) research have helped create a new front fairing with increased wind and weather protection.

 

Enhanced chassis stability and improved ride quality NEW

Changes to the shape of the rear bodywork include air vents that help to reduce the area of negative pressure that forms at the back of the bike, improving stability at speed. At the same time, adjustments to the suspension front and rear give a superb ride quality without sacrificing control.

 

Increased luggage capacity NEW

Larger panniers mean the Gold Wing’s total luggage capacity is now over 150 litres.

 

Surround sound audio system with iPod® connectivity NEW 

The adoption of a new 6-speaker 80W SRS surround-sound system offers superb sound presence and quality. Riders can now play MP3, WMA and AAC music files on the move by connecting an iPod®, iPhone® or USB stick. The result is easy access to any track you wish to hear.

 

Navigation system (installed only on models with airbag) NEW

The new, fully-integrated system with brighter screen includes a next-generation receiver for greater reception sensitivity for more reliable navigation.

 

Unique 1832cc flat-six engine 

Smooth, strong power is guaranteed, while the HECS3 oxygen-sensing catalytic converter keeps harmful exhaust gas emissions to levels approximately half of the limits needed for EURO-3 compliance.

 

Responsive handling in any situation

A lightweight and rigid twin-spar aluminium frame and single-sided Pro-Arm swingarm delivers stability and neutral, responsive handling. The low centre of gravity ensures good low-speed balance and stability.

 

Advanced safety features

Fitted with both Honda’s Combined Braking System (CBS) and an Antilock Braking System (ABS), the Gold Wing offers confidence-inspiring braking in all situations and conditions, even fully loaded. The optional airbag system – a first on a production motorcycle – ensures unrivalled levels of passive safety.
